  • Oilers' Kris Russell: Opens scoring against Vancouver

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/8/17) Russell opened the scoring and added an assist in Saturday's loss to Vancouver

    The Oilers' top offensive players were shut down by Vancouver, but Russell was able to contribute some offense from the blue line. The 30-year-old is more known for his shot blocking and defensive play, but he does possess some offensive characteristics and sees power-play time. Grab him in a deeper format if you're looking for someone who sees lots of ice time and produces scoring every now and then.

    Oilers' Kris Russell: Shot block machine never stops

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/5/17) Russell picked up where he left off last season, blocking seven shots in Wednesday's 3-0 win over Calgary.

    With the emergence of young defenders in Edmonton, Russell's minutes aren't likely to be huge. His 17:36 of ice time was the lowest mark among the team's six defenders. Low ice time and not being a part of the power play are a concern, but Russell will block a lot of shots, and that has value in certain formats.

    Oilers' Kris Russell: Doesn't ink Vegas deal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/21/17) Russell has not agreed to terms on a contract with the Golden Knights, effectively eliminating him as the expansion selection from Edmonton, Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports.

    Russell expressed interest in staying with the Oilers at the end of the season, so it should come as no surprise that he'll wait until free agency opens up July 1 in hopes of securing a deal. The 30-year-old won't offer much in terms of fantasy value regardless of where he lands, considering that he's failed to reach the 20-point mark in back-to-back seasons.

    Oilers' Kris Russell: Expresses desire to stay in Edmonton

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/12/17) Russell, a pending unrestricted free agent, wishes to remain with the Oilers.

    Russell has played for four different clubs since the Blue Jackets made him a third-round pick in 2005. He garnered a one-year deal with Edmonton, notching 13 points in 68 regular-season games, as well as four in 13 over the course of the postseason. Russell's bread and butter comes in the form of blocked shots -- he had a whopping 213 of those this year -- and that skill is quite transferable if he happens to wind up with yet another organization for the 2017-18 campaign.

    Oilers' Kris Russell: Contributes two helpers in Game 3

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/1/17) Russell notched a couple of assists in Sunday's Game 3 loss to the Ducks.

    It was the first points of the playoffs for Russell, who has been relied on more defensively in Edmonton. He blocks shots and logs solid minutes on the team's second defensive pairing with Andrej Sekera, but there really isn't much else he offers from a fantasy perspective. The 29-year-old only collected 13 points in the regular season, so look elsewhere if you're searching for offensive-minded blueliners.
