Horus was partly relying on the other legions not believing what was happening until it was too late to do much about it. Knowing that Russ was more than willing to tackle another primarch even without official sanction as we saw when he took on Angron, never mind what did or didn't happen with the lost legions, Horus would have seen that, when tied to Russ's unshakeable loyalty to the Emperor as a serious threat to the rebellion at the very outset.

There is also the fact that bigger legions that on paper would be bigger threats, like the UMs or BAs, would be taken out of the equation by the Ruinstorm or possibly even siding with Horus, whereas Fenris is relatively close to Terra, so the Wolves would be better placed to react to an attack there.
