Mets | Four starters sitting for Mets

Mon, 30 May 2016 07:44:52 -0700

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson, OF Michael Conforto, 3B Eric Campbell and C Kevin Plawecki are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Monday, May 30. OF Juan Lagares will start in center field and is batting first in the lineup. SS Wilmer Flores will start at first base and is batting fifth. OF Alejandro De Aza will start in left field and is batting sixth, while C Rene Rivera will start at catcher and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares has four hits in his last three games and has recorded two home runs and four RBI during that span. He should be a sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues. De Aza, Flores and Rivera are all hitting under .200 this season and probably can be avoided by owners.

Mets | NYM looking for help at first base

Fri, 27 May 2016 17:03:29 -0700

With New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) sidelined indefinitely, general manager Sandy Alderson plans to explore external options at first base. INF Eric Campbell has started four consecutive games at the position and INF Wilmer Flores (hamstring) could also see time there once he is activated from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Campbell and Flores should be viewed as NL-only fantasy options at this point, with Flores having more upside because of his power potential and positional versatility. The Mets could consider trading for a player such as Atlanta Braves INF/OF Kelly Johnson, who spent time with the club last season, or pursuing San Diego Padres minor league 1B James Loney, who can opt out of his deal if a job is available at the MLB level.

Mets | Lucas Duda out a while

Mon, 23 May 2016 13:49:27 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) will be out four to six weeks with a lower back stress fracture, according to manager Terry Collins. INF Ty Kelly will be part of a committee at first base with 3B Eric Campbell in the short term. SS Wilmer Flores (hamstring) is expected to start the majority of games there once he returns from the disabled list. OF Michael Conforto will also work out at first base in anticipation of playing some games there, according to Collins. 3B David Wright is not a consideration.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly was mashing at Class AAA Las Vegas (.391/.478/.548), but his stay is likely to be short. Don't overvalue him in NL-only leagues. Flores has some surprising pop for a middle infielder and could become even more attractive with first base eligibility as depth in cavernous mixed and NL-only affairs. Make sure to stash Duda everywhere because of his 30-homer potential.

Mets | Michael Conforto, Lucas Duda out of lineup

Mon, 23 May 2016 12:30:28 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto and 1B Lucas Duda (back) are not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals left-handed SP Gio Gonzalez Monday, May 23. OF Juan Lagares is starting in center field and batting second with OF Yoenis Cespedes shifting to left field. 3B Eric Campbell is starting at first base and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares is more known for his defense but could be a sleeper consideration hitting out of the two-hole in daily lineups. Campbell has only nine hits in 42 at-bats this year (.214) and should be avoided.

Mets | Lucas Duda, Kevin Plawecki out Sunday

Sun, 22 May 2016 08:30:57 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) and C Kevin Plawecki are not in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Chase Anderson Sunday, May 22. INF Eric Campbell will bat seventh and play first base for the second consecutive day, while C Rene Rivera will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Both Campbell and Rivera are only worth using in daily fantasy games as desperation sources of salary cap relief this afternoon.

Mets | David Wright, Kevin Plawecki back in lineup

Sat, 21 May 2016 10:09:48 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright and C Kevin Plawecki are back in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Zach Davies Saturday, May 21, batting second and eighth, respectively. In addition, INF Eric Campbell will bat seventh and play first base in place of 1B Lucas Duda, who is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Wright is likely to play in both afternoon games this weekend after being rested Friday, May 20. Duda has been plagued by back problems recently but it is uncertain if this is the reason he is not in Saturday's lineup. Plawecki and Campbell have combined to hit just .207 with one home run and eight RBI in 111 at-bats this year, so they should be avoided in daily fantasy contests.

Mets | David Wright takes a seat

Fri, 20 May 2016 12:52:37 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright is resting and is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 20. 3B Eric Campbell is at the hot corner and is batting seventh against Milwaukee Brewers SP Wily Peralta. Also, SS Asdrubal Cabrera moves up to the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets will continue to rest Wright often in order to keep him healthy all year, which will limit his already plummeting fantasy value. He's no longer a viable starter at third for fantasy owners in mixed leagues. Campbell is batting .212 in 33 at-bats and has limited fantasy appeal. Cabrera makes for an intriguing midrange shortstop option with the move up the order and with a juicy matchup in daily affairs.
