2021 Fantasy Outlook
Russell has played a pivotal role in the Sporting KC attack since joining the squad in 2018. He tied for the team lead in goals (six) in 2020 and tied for second in assists (four). The Scotsman stands over the majority of set pieces and he's not shy about running at the opposition in open play. Expect similar things for him in the upcoming campaign with more upside a good bet, assuming the players around him can stay healthy.

Provides assist in draw
F/MSporting Kansas City
June 15, 2021
Russell provided one assist from five chances created on 20 crosses (two accurate) and took seven shots (two on goal) during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Austin FC.
ANALYSIS
Russell has only started four times this season and only completed the full 90 twice, but in each of those games he's logged one assist and provided 10 crosses. These high-volume stat lines are excellent for fantasy in just about any format, so it's not the worst idea to track Russell's progression if he sticks in the lineup. Up next is a trip to Portland.

ANALYSIS
Russell consiguió su sexta assistencia de la temporada el domingo, su segunda asistencia en sus dos últimos partidos. Ha creado 10 oportunidades de gol en sus dos últimos partidos, y tratará de extender su buena forma en el partido del próximo fin de semana contra Dallas, que ha permitido 46 goles en 33 partidos.
