Russell posted 34 points (13-26 FG, 7-13, 1-2 FT), seven assists, five rebounds, a block and a steal across 37 minutes during Monday's win over the Celtics. Russell had a monster game, topping the 30-point threshold for the sixth time this year. He's scored over 20 points in seven of his past eight games and is clearly finding his groove on the offensive end. While Russell continues to be a volume shooter and can have ugly nights when his efficiency lags, he's the primary playmaker for the Nets, and has plenty of opportunities to generate fantasy production.
Russell accumulated 24 points (10-19 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine assists, six rebounds, and one steal in 27 minutes during Friday's 122-105 loss to the Raptors. Russell has scored at least 22 points in six of his last seven appearances, with the lone exception being Monday's five-point dud against the Celtics on the second night of a back-to-back. Russell remains a somewhat inconsistent and inefficient contributor, but his usage combined with his high upside makes him a strong option across all formats.

He's excelled recently, scoring over 20 points in five of six games, and averaging 22.3 points, 6.5 assists and 3.5 rebounds over that period. Russell still has the tendency to be an erratic shooter on occasion, but has stepped up his game on the whole in his fourth season.
