Note - unlike other rosters, no Simyin team has yet to have had many games, much less the 1000's that represent "successful" skill development as listed for other Races.
All opinions here are based on "best guesses" and past experience with other (hopefully applicable) races and positionals.

You probably(?) want 2 kinds of Chimps - one Sweeper (Tackle/Frenzy) and one Marker (SS, DT, Shadow). ymmv.
chimp as ballcarrier
Developing one of your 2 Chimpanzees as a designated ballcarrier is debated. On the plus side, MA 7 is nice, and they have Dodge access without needing doubles (compare to Bonobo ballcarrier, below). However, starting with Wrestle, Chimps seem better suited as sweepers. But, for a positional that picks up loose balls on a 2+, adding Block to keep them on their feet is not a terrible thing for defense. ymmv.
As Leader Caddy:
(this order may vary)
as lineman (this order may vary)
With so much Grab, one early Frenzy on the team can be very handy for surprise crowd-surfs. Because all your +St positionals start with Grab, by The Rules they can never take Frenzy.
This may be better than developing one of the MA 7 Chimpanzees as ballcarrier, as Wrestle does not keep them standing, and they seem better suited as sweepers. The first Bonobo that doubles gets Dodge and becomes the designated ballcarrier.
