Mets | Several NYM regulars resting Sunday

Sun, 01 May 2016 07:36:28 -0700

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson, SS Asdrubal Cabrera and 1B Lucas Duda are not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner Sunday, May 1. OF Juan Lagares will bat leadoff and play right field, INF Wilmer Flores will bat sixth and play shortstop and INF Eric Campbell will bat eighth and play first base. In addition, C Kevin Plawecki has returned to the lineup and will bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Granderson and Duda are resting because a left-handed pitcher is on the mound, while the switch-hitting Cabrera is receiving his first off day of the regular season. Of the replacements in Sunday's lineup, only Lagares has experienced any success at the plate this year, batting .281 with two extra-base hits and two RBI through his first 32 at-bats. Lagares should be viewed as an inexpensive flier option in daily fantasy contests.

Mets | Jacob deGrom away from team

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 10:56:20 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom (lat) has been placed on the bereavement/medical emergency list because of an issue regarding his newborn baby. In a corresponding move, INF Eric Campbell has been promoted from Class AAA Las Vegas.

Fantasy Tip: The club is expected to release more information on the situation later today, so stay tuned for further updates. DeGrom had been scheduled to pitch against the Philadelphia Phillies Tuesday, April 19, but Logan Verrett will receive the start instead. DeGrom is expected to be away from the club for three to seven days and he should remain stashed in all fantasy formats.

Mets | David Wright catches some pine

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 07:24:29 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright is out of the lineup Thursday, Oct. 1, with 3B Eric Campbell hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Campbell ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) was 6-for-13 (.462) in September, but it's not a big enough sample size to use him on FantasyScore against young Jerad Eickhoff.

Mets | Three Mets lefties benched Wednesday

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 12:33:46 -0700

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson, 2B Daniel Murphy and 1B Lucas Duda are all out of the lineup against Miami Marlins left-handed SP Adam Conley Wednesday, Sept. 16. OF Juan Lagares is leading off and playing center field, 3B Juan Uribe is starting at second and hitting cleanup and 3B Eric Campbell is starting at first base and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: All three replacements are nothing more than sleeper picks on FantasyScore today, but Lagares ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) and Uribe ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) could be useful against the hittable Conley if you're looking to save money elsewhere. Lagares is hitting .288 (32-for-111) with three of his six homers against lefties and Uribe has similar numbers against southpaws. Campbell ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) should be ignored.

Mets | Michael Cuddyer activated from DL

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 12:05:53 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Cuddyer (knee) was activated from the disabled list Monday, Aug. 10. In a corresponding move, 3B Eric Campbell was optioned to Class AAA Las Vegas.

Fantasy Tip: The real winner here is Michael Conforto ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) who sticks with the big club. The rookie should continue to see semi-regular at-bats and is worth owning in deep leagues. Cuddyer ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has battled the nagging knee injury all season, and it is unlikely he'll be relied upon for everyday starts. The veteran owns an uninspiring .250/.303/.380 slash line over 314 plate appearances this season. Campbell can be dropped in all fantasy formats.

Mets | Michael Conforto sitting

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 15:49:19 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 31. 3B Eric Campbell is starting in left field and is hitting eighth against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets traded for Yoenis Cespedes right at the trade deadline Friday, so Conforto ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) could be headed back to the minors if the Mets want to make sure he receives regular at-bats. Either way, Conforto's fantasy value will take a big hit after being a short-term solution for those in deeper leagues. Conforto should still be owned in dynasty leagues, though. Campbell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) doesn't deserve consideration in your daily lineups.

Mets | Daniel Murphy sitting vs. Dodgers

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 13:12:17 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 23. 1B Eric Campbell is starting at third base and batting fifth against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) hasn't been at his best of late with just three runs, a home run and two RBI through 16 games in July. Going against Kershaw ($9,700, 19.4% of cap), none of the Mets are advised daily players, and since Campbell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) sports and .179/.305/.283 slash line, FantasyScore players should definitely aim higher.

Mets | Lucas Duda sitting vs. Nationals

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 13:50:36 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 20. 3B Eric Campbell is playing first base and batting sixth against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Duda ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday. Campbell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is sporting a 4-for-41 run over his past 20 games. FantasyScore players should aim higher Monday.

Mets | Daniel Murphy on the bench

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 09:36:26 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin Saturday, July 11. 3B Eric Campbell will start at third base and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return soon. Campbell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) picked up a home run and two RBI in his last game, but owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use.

Mets | Michael Cuddyer remains out

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 10:40:19 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Cuddyer (knee) remains out of the lineup Wednesday, July 8. 3B Eric Campbell is starting in left field and hitting seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy.

Fantasy Tip: Campbell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting only .167 (22-for-132) on the season with two home runs and 12 RBI. He's a desperation sleeper play as salary cap relief on FantasyScore.
