Mets | No Michael Conforto vs. Miami

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 12:36:28 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22. OF Juan Lagares is starting in center field and batting eighth against Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Conforto doesn't project to see many starts against southpaws, but he's still a viable option in deep mixed and NL-only leagues. He also owns the upside to be owned universally. Lagares has limited fantasy value batting eighth Friday, and he sits with an underwhelming .254/.299/.413 slash line for the season.

Mets | No Yoenis Cespedes against Cubs

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 08:48:17 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. OF Juan Lagares is starting in center field and batting seventh against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Sub out Cespedes where you can in seasonal leagues. Despite battling nagging injuries for most of the season, he's remained a high-end outfielder with 47 runs, 21 home runs, 52 RBI and a .295/.367/.567 slash line. Lagares is a potential low-priced flier for daily contests Wednesday, but he's nothing more than a depth option in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.

Mets | Brandon Nimmo, Travis d'Arnaud out

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 09:38:12 -0700

New York Mets OF Brandon Nimmo and C Travis d'Arnaud are not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Zach Eflin Sunday, July 17. OF Yoenis Cespedes will start at left field, while OF Juan Lagares will start at center field and is batting seventh. C Rene Rivera will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares is hitting .200 with one home run and one RBI this month and is not a strong option in most fantasy leagues. Rivera has only two hits in his last 11 at-bats and should only be used in two-catcher leagues.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes out again Saturday

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 14:29:29 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes (quadriceps) is out of the lineup Saturday, July 16, with OF Juan Lagares hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares is hitting just .182 this month and is pretty limited at the dish anyway. Pass on him against Jerad Eickhoff. As for Cespedes, he'll need to return in the next couple of days to avoid a DL placement. He has been out for a week now, and they could backdate the move so he misses minimal time.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes remains out

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 12:43:21 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes (quad) remains sidelined due to a quad strain, so OF Juan Lagares will bat eighth on Friday, July 15, against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jeremy Hellickson.

Fantasy Tip: Keep Cespedes on your bench until he is ready to come back. The team is hopeful that it could be any time. Lagares has limited fantasy value hitting towards the bottom.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes, James Loney out Sunday

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 07:29:24 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes (quadriceps) and 1B James Loney are not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Sunday, July 10. INF Wilmer Flores will bat third and play first base, OF Juan Lagares will bat sixth and play center field and OF Alejandro De Aza will bat eighth and start in left field.

Fantasy Tip: Flores is 11-for-22 (.500) with a double, five home runs and 10 RBI over the past week, so he should be inserted into all fantasy lineups. Lagares is also worthy of lineup consideration, since he is a .406 career hitter versus Gonzalez in 32 at-bats, with three doubles, a triple, a home run and four RBI. De Aza is 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles against Gonzalez and is 4-for-10 at the plate this month.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes has strained quadriceps

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 17:53:59 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes (quadriceps) left the game against the Washington Nationals Friday, July 8, because of a strained right quadriceps. He was replaced in center field by OF Juan Lagares.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of Cespedes' injury is unknown at this point, so check back occasionally for updates on his status. He struck out in his only at-bat and is hitting .302 with 21 home runs and 52 RBI through 80 games. Expect Lagares and OF Alejandro De Aza to see increased playing time if Cespedes is sidelined for multiple games.

Mets | Three Mets idle Wednesday

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 07:42:11 -0700

New York Mets OF Brandon Nimmo, 1B James Loney and C Travis d'Arnaud are out of the lineup Wednesday, July 6, with 2B Wilmer Flores hitting fifth, OF Juan Lagares hitting seventh and C Rene Rivera hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Flores has a .292-2-5 line the last week, and he's worth low-end consideration against lefty Justin Nicolino. Lagares is hitting .280, but he doesn't present enough upside for more than a basement play. Rivera isn't worth DFS consideration.

Mets | Neil Walker, Brandon Nimmo out

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 13:56:32 -0700

New York Mets 2B Neil Walker and OF Brandon Nimmo are not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins left-handed SP Wei-Yin Chen Tuesday, July 5. SS Wilmer Flores is starting at the keystone and is hitting cleanup, while OF Juan Lagares is in center field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: It's likely just a night off for Walker and Nimmo against the lefty. Flores notched six hits and two homers Sunday and is hot right now, so he's a value pick in DFS in the middle of the order. However, with Jose Reyes now playing regularly at third base, Flores' value in traditional leagues takes a big hit. Lagares is known more for his defense and has little fantasy value otherwise.

Mets | Brandon Nimmo on the bench

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 09:11:25 -0700

New York Mets OF Brandon Nimmo is not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester Sunday, July 3. OF Yoenis Cespedes will start in left field, while OF Juan Lagares will start in center field and is batting first.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares was activated from the disabled list recently and should receive playing time against left-handed pitchers. He has a decent .286 average but only two home runs and six RBI on the season. Owners in most leagues should be able to find a better option.
