Mets | David Wright taking a breather

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 12:37:00 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright is not in the starting lineup, as expected, Wednesday, Aug. 26. 2B Daniel Murphy moves back to second base, and 3B Juan Uribe is starting at third base and is hitting seventh against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff.

Fantasy Tip: Stacking Mets hitters against Eickhoff, who is making his second major league start, isn't a bad idea. Murphy ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has more upside for the price. Uribe ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) still has power in his old age, but he's hitting .239 (57-for-238) against right-handers this season.

Mets | Daniel Murphy extends hit streak

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 21:55:39 -0700

New York Mets 1B Daniel Murphy went 3-for-6 with a pair of doubles and a two-run home run Monday, Aug. 24, against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has hit safely in eight straight games, going 12-for-32 (.375) with two homers and five RBIs to make him a must-have in FantasyScore at a cut-rate price.

Mets | Juan Uribe out of lineup

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 14:22:37 -0700

New York Mets 3B Juan Uribe is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 21. 2B Daniel Murphy moves to the hot corner, while 2B Kelly Johnson is starting at the keystone and hitting sixth against Colorado Rockies SP Jon Gray.

Fantasy Tip: Starting Mets hitters on FantasyScore tonight at hitter-friendly Coors Field against Gray, who is still looking for his first major league win, is a strategy that could easily pay off. Both Murphy ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) and Johnson ($3,500) are affordable and intriguing clicks.

Mets | Juan Uribe with a day off

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 13:42:33 -0700

New York Mets 3B Juan Uribe is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 18. 2B Daniel Murphy slides over to third base, while 2B Kelly Johnson is starting at the keystone and hitting sixth against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has some decent pop, but he's surprisingly been better against left-handed pitchers this season, although 10 of his 11 home runs have been off righties. Gausman is no slouch against lefties in 2015, so Johnson is merely a mediocre outfield play on FantasyScore.

Mets | Daniel Murphy extends streak

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 19:54:51 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy went 2-for-4 with a double in a 3-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates Saturday, Aug. 14, extending his hitting streak to 10 games.

Fantasy Tip: During the streak, Murphy ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is hitting .395 with seven RBI and seven runs scored. He is providing rock solid production for the price at FantasyScore.

Mets | Daniel Murphy hitting third

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 08:26:01 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy is hitting third Thursday, Aug. 13, with OF Yoenis Cespedes sliding up to hit second.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has a .368-2-6 line this month and a decent matchup against Eddie Butler. He's a great option for the price on FantasyScore. Cespedes ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has cooled a bit with a .261-1-6 line this month. It might be best for his price to come down a bit.

Mets | Daniel Murphy sitting vs. southpaw

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 12:15:48 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy is not in the lineup against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Jorge De La Rosa Wednesday, Aug. 12. SS Wilmer Flores is starting at second base and hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Flores ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has pretty solid numbers against lefties this year (.303-4-11) and has surprising pop for a middle infielder. You could do much worse than Flores as a sleeper pick on your FantasyScore roster tonight.

Mets | Daniel Murphy dialed in

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 19:46:41 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a 4-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, Aug. 7, and he is 8-for-16 over his last four games.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has two homers and has scored five times during his last four games, and he is worth a look as a source of cap relief at FantasyScore as long as he is facing a right-handed starter. Murphy is hitting over .300 against righties and just .195 against lefties this year.

Mets | Kelly Johnson draws into lineup

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 13:41:20 -0700

New York Mets 2B Kelly Johnson is starting at second base and hitting eighth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi Friday, Aug. 7. 2B Daniel Murphy is serving as the designated hitter in an American League park.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) can provide sneaky power at the keystone on FantasyScore. Nine of his 10 homers this year have come off righties, too, although Odorizzi has held lefty sticks down for the most part in 2015. Johnson remains a sleeper pick in daily games.

Mets | Daniel Murphy, Kelly Johnson out

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 13:57:08 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy and OF Kelly Johnson are not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Brad Hand Tuesday, Aug. 4. 3B Juan Uribe is starting at third base and hitting third, while SS Wilmer Flores receives the start at second base and is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Against the lefty Hand, both Uribe ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) and Flores ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) are worth consideration as sleeper plays and salary cap relief. Uribe is hitting .291 (16-for-55) with five of his nine home runs against southpaws, and Flores has a .303 average (20-for-66) with four of his 11 home runs against lefties.
