May 29, 2021
Ziebell amassed 23 disposals, seven marks and a pair of goals Saturday as North Melbourne fell to St. Kilda 88-68 at Marvel Stadium.
ANALYSIS
The AFL's leader in total kicks for the year posted his best numbers in five showings and converted his first two majors of 2021 in Saturday's contest. His seven marks also tied him with teammates Aaron Hall, Curtis Taylor and Josh Walker for most marks versus St. Kilda. The 30 year-old's Round 11 performance leaves him having failed to top 100 fantasy points in three of his last five appearances, but still averaging 109.0 a game in 2021, second-best among all AFL defenders heading into month of June.

Team-high 12 marks in loss

May 23, 2021
Zielbell managed 24 disposals and 12 marks Sunday as North Melbourne fell to Essendon 141-69 at Marvel Stadium.
ANALYSIS
Ziebell's 12 marks not only matched Essendon's Darcy Parish as a game-high, but too left the 30 year-old with his second best sum total in that category for the year. Meanwhile, his 24 disposals (19 kicks, five handballs) were the third-most produced by a North Melbourne player in Sunday's loss. The AFL's No. 1 for total marks (85) and No. 2 for total kicks (224) continues to produce fantasy numbers at an elite pace, and through 10 rounds, retains a 110 point per game average, second-highest amongst league forwards and first amongst defenders.

Ziebell didn't appear on his club's injury list ahead of Round 9 against Hawthorn.
ANALYSIS
Ziebell had left early in the Round 8 loss to Collingwood but his continued absence from that game seems to have just been a precaution. His appearance on the team sheet later in the week would confirm this news.

ANALYSIS
Ziebell proved a force to be reckoned with on Saturday, registering 30+ disposals for a second-straight week, posting a season-high for tackles and setting a personal-best with eight clearances. The veteran forward absolutely dominated his competition in the month of April and now prepares for a Round Seven match up with Melbourne ranked first in the AFL for total kicks and second in total fantasy score (715 points) on the year.
Team-high disposals figure in loss

April 18, 2021
Ziebell recorded 38 disposals (33 kicks, five handballs), nine marks and one tackle in a 77-47 loss to Geelong on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Ziebell has been a reliable supplier of disposals and marks throughout the season, and that was no different in Sunday's lopsided loss. His disposal tally was easily a team-high figure, with no other member of the Kangaroos clearing the 30-mark. Ziebell's marks total also claimed a share of the team lead and pushed his figure in that category to an impressive 37 over his first five games.
