New York Mets OF Eric Campbell is starting in left field against a left-handed pitcher Friday, Aug. 15, and he and OF Matt den Dekker are essentially involved in a platoon at the position.
Fantasy Tip: den Dekker has much more upside and should see more time in the starting lineup for the remainder of the season. den Dekker should already be owned in all NL-only formats and is worth consideration in deep mixed universes.

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 29. 3B Eric Campbell is playing first base and hitting fourth.
Fantasy Tip: Duda has a .153 batting average against left-handed pitchers this season. With Cole Hamels on the hill for the Phillies, this is a strategic time to rest Duda. Remove Duda from your daily-transaction leagues and expect him to continue to sit against tough lefties.

New York Mets 3B Eric Campbell is likely to get the start at shortstop Thursday, July 24, with SS Ruben Tejada (head) likely to need a day off after being hit in the head by a pitch.
Fantasy Tip: Daily fantasy owners might want to take note, as Campbell can sometimes be used at various positions with certain fantasy providers. He recently had a 10-game hitting streak, and comes on the cheap in salary cap formats.

New York Mets 3B Eric Campbell will return to a pinch-hitting role with the team, now that 3B David Wright is healthy. Campbell filled in admirably, hitting .464 (13-for-28) in Wright's absence. Campbell is expected to start at first base when the Mets face a left-handed pitcher, according to manager Terry Collins.
Fantasy Tip: The Mets host the Braves Monday, July 7, and Campbell gets to face the reeling Mike Minor. He is in play in daily games, when starting, but without consistent playing time, his fantasy value is nixed, beyond NL-only formats.

New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada should start every game at shortstop through the All-Star break, according to manager Terry Collins. Mets 3B Eric Campbell will serve as his emergency backup.
Fantasy Tip: Desperate NL-only owners could consider Tejada, given his guaranteed playing time, but he brings little upside to the table.
