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.

Fri, 29 May 2015 19:35:25 -0700

Fantasy Tip: He has suddenly found his power stroke, and six of his nine home runs this season have come since May 21. Feel free to ride Duda's ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) hot hand at FantasyScore.

Wed, 27 May 2015 17:14:11 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda went 3-for-4 with two home runs and two RBI against the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has recorded at least one hit in 11 of his last 13 games and has three home runs in his last three games. Owners on FantasyScore can consider using Duda in their lineup against certain matchups.

Mets | Lucas Duda playing Monday

Mon, 25 May 2015 07:22:15 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (hamstring) is in the starting lineup Monday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) missed the last game because of a tight hamstring but is back in the lineup. He has at least one hit in 11 of his last 14 games and has six RBI in that span. Duda is a risky option on FantasyScore because of the injury but could be a starting option for owners.

Mets | Lucas Duda not starting

Sun, 24 May 2015 08:29:41 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Duda ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) will be able to play in the next few days. Michael Cuddyer ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) will start at first base and could be a starting option since he has at least one hit in six of his last eight games.
