Cubs | Addison Russell moved up in order

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 13:13:53 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Addison Russell is hitting sixth in the batting order against Miami Marlins SP Brad Hand Tuesday, June 2.

Fantasy Tip: Russell ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has four homers and 15 RBI while hitting .254 in his rookie season, but he gets lost in the fantasy shuffle often times while hitting ninth in Chicago. A temporary move up in the lineup makes him more attractive to use on FantasyScore tonight. If there was ever a day to pick Russell, it'd be tonight against Hand.

Cubs | Jonathan Herrera playing Sunday

Sun, 24 May 2015 12:26:31 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Jonathan Herrera is starting against the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday, May 24, in place of 2B Addison Russell. He is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Russell ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is receiving the day off and should be removed from all fantasy lineups. Herrera ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is not much more than a low-priced flier in FantasyScore.

Cubs | Addison Russell batting ninth

Sat, 23 May 2015 15:37:00 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Addison Russell will bat ninth Saturday, May 23, against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Russell ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) went 3-for-10 in his last two games, but he finds himself batting behind pitcher Jake Arrieta Saturday. While Russell's play has been improving of late, his position in the batting order drastically reduces his value on FantasyScore.

Cubs | Addison Russell settling in with Cubs

Fri, 08 May 2015 12:26:23 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B/SS Addison Russell is currently riding a 10-game hitting streak, which is the longest of any Chicago hitter this season. During the stretch, Russell has six runs, two home runs, six RBI and a .343/.378/.657 slash line.

Fantasy Tip: Russell ($2,200, 4.4% of cap), just 21, is having quality at-bats, and while he is striking out 37.8% of the time, it is tough to ask for more at this stage of his career. He is worth a roster spot in the majority of fantasy leagues and projects to be a low-end starter at shortstop and second base going forward. FantasyScore players have a nice bargain on their hands given his recent surge, too.

Cubs | Addison Russell picking it up

Wed, 06 May 2015 12:49:31 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Addison Russell is batting .357 (10-for-28) with six extra-base hits and six RBI during his eight-game hitting streak.

Fantasy Tip: Russell ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) would appeal more to FantasyScore users if he weren't hitting ninth for the Cubbies, but he shouldn't be ignored just because of that. The youngster has raised his average to .261 (12-for-46), and he has two home runs and seven RBI.

Cubs | Miguel Montero, Addison Russell hot

Tue, 05 May 2015 16:05:11 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is hitting .478 (11-for-23) with six RBI during a six-game hitting streak, and 2B Addison Russell is hitting .320 (8-for-25) with four extra-base hits and six RBI during his seven-game hitting streak.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) and Russell ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) are both hot and worth running with at FantasyScore. However, Montero isn't in the starting lineup Tuesday.

Cubs | Addison Russell hits first homer

Fri, 01 May 2015 16:39:34 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Addison Russell cracked his first career home run Friday, May 1, against the Milwaukee Brewers, and it was all of the offense in a 1-0 win. "It feels good and it made it even more special because I'm home at Wrigley. Fans jumping up and down and hearing the crowd roar like that is an awesome feeling," Russell said.

Fantasy Tip: Russell is still hitting just .194 overall, but at just $2,200 (or 4.4% of cap) he is a good value in FantasyScore. It won't take much to exceed DFS salary expectations.

Cubs | Addison Russell out of the lineup

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 13:10:37 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Addison Russell is not in the starting lineup against the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday, April 29. SS Jonathan Herrera is starting at second base and batting ninth Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Russell ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) from your lineups Wednesday. FantasyScore players should view Herrera ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) as nothing more than a low-priced flier with emerging-star Gerrit Cole on the hill for the Pirates. Russell is likely just receiving a routine day off which will provide him two consecutive rest days, as the Cubs don't play Thursday, April 30. While Russell has struck out 14 times in 29 plate appearances, he is beginning to show life at the dish. He has three runs, three doubles and five RBI over his last five games.

Cubs | Addison Russell delivers big hit

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 17:55:13 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Addison Russell went 1-for-4 with a three-run double in a 5-2 win over the Cincinnati Reds Sunday, April 26.

Fantasy Tip: Russell's first week in the majors has been a rough one, and he is hitting .136 with 12 strikeouts in five games. The big hit could start a hot streak for the highly-touted prospect, but until he shows some more consistency at the plate, he can be avoided at FantasyScore when he is added to the player pool.

Cubs | Addison Russell has rough debut

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 22:27:34 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Addison Russell was hitless in five at-bats with three strikeouts in his major league debut Tuesday, April 21, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: There will certainly be better days for Russell. FantasyScore owners simply need to be patient, as he will hit much sooner than later.
