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.

Mets | Lucas Duda out of lineup

Tue, 17 May 2016 12:08:00 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 17. 3B Eric Campbell is starting at first base and is hitting eighth against Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer.

Fantasy Tip: It's a tough draw for Campbell to face a pitcher coming off a historic 20-strikeout performance. Campbell, who has a career .231 average with just six home runs in three years, is an obvious avoid candidate in daily games.

Mets | Curtis Granderson, David Wright out

Sun, 15 May 2016 12:24:44 -0700

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson and 3B David Wright are not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood Sunday, May 15. OF Alejandro De Aza will start in right field and is batting first, while 3B Eric Campbell will start at third base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: De Aza is batting .189 this season and is not a great fantasy option for owners. Owners can also avoid Campbell since he is also hitting under .200 this season.

Mets | Michael Conforto, Lucas Duda both out

Thu, 12 May 2016 15:55:15 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto (rest) and 1B Lucas Duda (rest) are not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 12, versus Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw. 3B Eric Campbell gets the start at first base, batting eighth, while OF Juan Lagares is in center field and hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: This is just standard protocol for the Mets whenever they face a left-handed pitcher, as Conforto and Duda both struggle against southpaws. And whenever this is the case, let alone opposite the best pitcher in the game, owners can immediately look past it. Campbell is basically the definition of a dead bat, while Lagares typically has a low ceiling, being known more for his glove.

Mets | David Wright, Kevin Plawecki out

Wed, 11 May 2016 15:56:15 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright and C Kevin Plawecki are not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Kenta Maeda Wednesday, May 11. 3B Eric Campbell will start at third base and is batting seventh, while C Rene Rivera will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Campbell has found some success at the plate recently, but neither he nor Rivera should be a starting option in daily fantasy leagues.

Mets | Curtis Granderson, Lucas Duda resting

Tue, 10 May 2016 15:48:07 -0700

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson and 1B Lucas Duda are not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers left-handed SP Alex Wood Tuesday, May 10. OF Juan Lagares is starting in right field and hitting leadoff, while 3B Eric Campbell is starting at first base and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Wood has struggled mightily in the Dodgers rotation, but both Lagares and Campbell remain low-end daily commodities. If you're going to choose one as a deep sleeper to save you some salary cap space, it should be Lagares at the top of the order. But keep in mind he's much more useful to the Mets for his glove and not his bat.
