Normally I would get major wood for a 22 year SS who hit 13 HR in his age 21 season. I’d be the first one lining up to overdraft the future superstar. However, every time I look into Addison Russell’s numbers, they just jump out as a guy who isn’t quite ready for the big time. I think there is a decent chance that I come to regret everything I’m about to write but screw it: I think Addison Russell is overrated for 2016. Someday he will be an excellent fantasy asset but without major improvements 2016 is not that year.
Do you want to be talked into drafting Joe Kelly? The answer is probably no but either way here are five surprising starters from the American League and their potential fantasy relevancy this year.
Here are five NL players who will likely be starting for their teams and are worth a gamble at the end of drafts.
