SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND
Addison Russell was a bench player and spot starter this past fantasy season. He was the #229 ranked fantasy player this season and the #27 SS. His ranking drops to the #33 ranked SS when basing it on average fantasy points. He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 43 games he averaged 2.6 fantasy points which was higher than his start (2.1 FP) and his ending average (0.7 FP). He is still relatively young, so his late season drop-off should not be an indicator of an overall downward trend heading into next season. His standard deviation divided by his average is 1.39 which is close to the league ratio. Our projected ceiling for Russell when he 'goes off' is 13 fantasy points (his average is 1.8FPs).

STATISTICAL DROPOFF FROM PREVIOUS SEASON
It is not a good sign to see a drop-off in production in a young player. His fantasy average dropped by 18 percent.
WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP
He has averaged 9 fantasy points per week and had 8 weeks where he came up short (below 50% of average) and had 6 weeks where he was +50% above average.
DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP
He averaged 6.7 FD points and 5.2 DK points per game. We looked at all of his games that were between the 10th and 90th percentile where the 10th percentile is his floor and the 90th is his ceiling. When he was bad in DFS, he was really bad with a floor of zero points. He had a relatively high ceiling. On DraftKings it was 9 and on FanDuel it was 12.2 FPs. He has had more bad FanDuel games (below average by 20%) than good games (20% above average), and the same was true on DraftKings. We are only including games where they were in the daily fantasy slate and played.
