Six Nations underperforming XV: Misfiring Finn Russell and more

Fly-half: Finn Russell – Scotland
Value: 5 Points: 10

His poor form has been reflected in his fantasy league points, being outscored so far by the likes of George Ford and Tomasso Allen (worth only 2!).

Scrum-half: Danny Care – England
Value: 4 Points: 6

Considering he’s played the majority of England’s two games, his points tally is really poor. This is especially clear when you see Maxime Machenaud (11), Gareth Davies (11), Greig Laidlaw (19) and Conor Murray (22) are all miles ahead. Will be hoping for a better performance against Scotland.

Prop: Jack McGrath – Ireland
Value: 5 Points: 5

Selected by a lot of players but didn’t even make the starting XV for the tournament opener against France. A poor selection compared to Mako Vunipola – who for the same price would have delivered nine points.

Hooker: Dylan Hartley – England
Value: 4 Points: 4

The England skipper has been a real let down. His points total is dwarfed by the likes of Guilhem Guirado (17) and Rory Best (12). Despite starting both games, his tally is also the same as Jamie George.

Prop: Tadhg Furlong – Ireland
Value: 5 Points: 5

The British and Irish Lion tighthead was picked by a massive 45% of players on ESPN but has been unable to perform at his best. An average display against France was followed by an early exit against Italy.
