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 | Lucas Duda's strikeout rate skyrocketing

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 13:06:40 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda has a 30% strikeout rate since the beginning of June. In April, Duda's mark was 17.7%.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is reeling, and the strikeouts are clearly contributing significantly to his underwhelming .511 OPS since the beginning of June. He has just eight runs, a home run and nine RBI over the 32-game span. Fantasy owners shouldn't fret over benching Duda in seasonal formats or avoiding him in daily contests.

Mets | Lucas Duda out Monday

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 16:01:17 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 6. OF Michael Cuddyer is starting at first base and hitting fifth against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston. Also, OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis is starting in left field and hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) should be avoided everywhere while in the midst of a bad slump at the plate. Cuddyer ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has only two hits in his last 36 at-bats (.056) and isn't a strong FantasyScore value play. Avoid Nieuwenhuis ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) everywhere.

Mets | Several NY hitters struggled against Giants

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 11:06:14 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (9-for-52), SS Ruben Tejada (1-for-27) and C Travis d'Arnaud (3-for-24) have struggled in the last 13 meetings with the San Francisco Giants. The Mets face the Giants in a series starting Monday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has just nine hits in his last 65 at-bats (.138) since June 17 with one home run and five RBI. Tejada ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has seven hits in his last 46 at-bats (.152) even after recording three hits last night. Against Giants starter Chris Heston, who no hit the Mets the last time he faced them, neither Duda nor Tejada are intriguing FantasyScore plays Monday.

Mets | NY scuffling offensively

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 13:09:22 -0700

New York Mets 2B Dilson Herrera (1-for-17), OF Juan Lagares (3-for-23), 1B Lucas Duda (3-for-21) and OF Michael Cuddyer (3-for-21) have all been struggling on the team's current road trip. The Mets are hitting .168 with four home runs and eight runs scored while losing six straight on the road.

Fantasy Tip: That's a hint to consider using Jimmy Nelson ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) as a risk-reward option on FantasyScore against the Mets tonight. New York ranks 28th in baseball with a .659 OPS against right-handed pitchers. Shying away from Mets hitters right now in daily contests is wise.

Mets | Lucas Duda needs to get team on track

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 15:16:22 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda is hitting just .179 since May 31, but he has nine RBI in seven career games in Milwaukee, and three home runs in his last four.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is batting third in the lineup Tuesday, June 23, against RHP Mike Fiers. It's been a small sample size for Duda in Milwaukee, but his recent batting average should start to rebound soon as well. Duda can be considered for use in GPP tournaments on FantasyScore.

Mets | Lucas Duda sitting vs. southpaw

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 13:59:44 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves left-handed SP Alex Wood Friday, June 12. OF Michael Cuddyer is hitting third and playing first base, while OF John Mayberry Jr. is hitting fifth and starting in left field.

Fantasy Tip: Cuddyer ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is not a bad daily pick at all. He's hitting much better at home (.306/.385/.463) than on the road (.233/.255/.350) and is 12-for-44 (.273) against left-handers this season. Mayberry ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) shouldn't be trusted at all, as he has only six hits in 35 at-bats (.171) against southpaws this year.

Mets | Lucas Duda back in lineup

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 16:56:39 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (knee) returns to the lineup Tuesday, June 2, against the San Diego Padres. Duda will start at first base and hit third in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) owns bizarre reverse splits this season, limiting him to just a .271 batting average against right-handed pitchers. Duda should be reserved for GPP tournaments, as FantasyScore owners need to rely mainly on his power.

Mets | Lucas Duda's injury not serious

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 16:02:39 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (knee) said he could "absolutely" pinch hit if needed Monday, June 1, and he plans to return to the starting lineup Tuesday, June 2.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is having a breakout season in 2015, hitting .298 (53-for-178) with nine home runs and 25 RBI. He should be in nightly consideration for a FantasyScore lineup spot the way he's been swinging the stick this year, and don't rule out starting him against a lefty, either.

Mets | Lucas Duda out of lineup

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 15:37:34 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (knee) is out of the starting lineup due to a stiff knee Monday, June 1.

Fantasy Tip: With Duda out, Michael Cuddyer ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is playing first base and hitting cleanup against San Diego Padres starter Andrew Cashner. Cuddyer does have four hits in 14 at-bats, including a home run, in his career against Cashner, but he's an underwhelming outfield option, especially at pitcher-friendly Petco Park.
