Wayne Simmonds netted his 14th and 15th goals of the season in Philadelphia's 7-4 victory over Minnesota on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: It was a wild game with 11 goals, and Simmonds was able to grab a couple of them. It was his first multi-point game since October 16th, after he had three of them in the team's opening six games. Simmonds has not been consistent this year, nor has he been performing as well as previous years. He's still a solid option, but tender your expectations for the 30-year-old.

Wayne Simmonds earned his 13th goal of the season during Monday's 5-3 loss to Washington.

Fantasy Impact: The goal came with the goaltender pulled and the Flyers down by three, but Simmonds still rewarded fantasy owners with the tally. He also received a 10-minute misconduct, helping out those in leagues that award penalty minutes. Simmonds hasn't produced the kind of numbers many owners had hoped, but perhaps this will help him pick up the pace in the second half.

Wayne Simmonds beat Petr Mrazek on the power play to get the Flyers on the board Thursday night against the Hurricanes.

Fantasy Impact: It has been a bit of a down year for Simmonds, who has 12 goals and six assists through 40 games. He should be started in deeper leagues still, but if penalty minutes don't count, he's not going to offer much help.

Wayne Simmonds scored his 11th goal of the season during Sunday's 3-2 win over the New York Rangers.

Fantasy Impact: Simmonds had just two points in his previous 12 games, so perhaps this can help him regain his scoring touch. It's looking to be a down season for Simmonds, who may struggles to reach the 40-point plateau. Unless he heats up soon, it could be the first time since 2012-13 that he could fail to record at least 40 points.

Wayne Simmonds tallied his tenth goal of the season on Saturday in the Flyers' big win over the Sabres.

Fantasy Impact: Simmonds is having a bit of a down year from a fantasy standpoint but is serving a crucial role in the Flyers lineup. For fantasy, there may be safer options available, but the Wayne Train is still worth a look if you need a guy to fill in.
