Mets | Michael Cuddyer not playing

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 12:18:05 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Cuddyer is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 2. 2B Kelly Johnson is starting at the keystone and hitting seventh against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Nola, while 2B Daniel Murphy moves over to first base.

Fantasy Tip: Eleven of Johnson's ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) 12 home runs this year have come against right-handed pitchers, so he's worth a look on FantasyScore as a value pick tonight.

Mets | Kelly Johnson out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 13:00:01 -0700

New York Mets 2B Kelly Johnson is not starting Tuesday, Sept. 1, against the Philadelphia Phillies. 1B Daniel Murphy is at second base and is hitting third against Phlllies SP Aaron Harang.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is alternating in the lineup every other day as the Mets balance a lineup with more infielders. He is hitting .182 against Harang, which likely accounts for his absence.

Mets | Kelly Johnson playing second base

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 10:06:29 -0700

New York Mets INF Kelly Johnson will bat fifth and play second base against Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly Saturday, Aug. 29. INF Wilmer Flores, who started at second base Friday, Aug. 28, will play shortstop Saturday.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is only hitting .219 with three home runs and six RBIs in 73 at-bats since joining the club, so he isn't a recommended option in FantasyScore this afternoon. On the other hand, Flores ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is batting .393 with two homers and seven RBIs over the past week and should be considered for daily lineups.

Mets | Michael Cuddyer starting at first base

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 13:39:16 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Cuddyer is starting at first base and batting fifth against Boston Red Sox SP Henry Owens Friday, Aug. 28. 2B Kelly Johnson draws out of the lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) appears to be over the nagging knee injury for the time being, but he still isn't receiving everyday playing time. Still, he is currently raking with a .350/.381/.600 slash line since returning from the disabled list and is worth targeting at FantasyScore Friday. Johnson's ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) role could dwindle if he doesn't heat up at the plate. He has just six RBI and a .222/.273/.403 slash line over 22 games since joining the Mets. He is nothing more than a cavernous mixed and NL-only option is seasonal formats.

Mets | Wilmer Flores out of the lineup

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:30:39 -0700

New York Mets SS Wilmer Flores is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 27. 2B Kelly Johnson is starting at second base and batting fifth, and SS Ruben Tejada is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Flores ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has been swinging a hot bat, and he is worth a look in deep mixed leagues, especially if middle infield is an area of need. Johnson ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is a nice FantasyScore play Wednesday, as the Mets lineup is piling on the offense of late. Tejada ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is more of a dice roll, though, and he shouldn't be confused as a lineup priority.

Mets | Wilmer Flores starting at SS

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 12:01:47 -0700

New York Mets SS Wilmer Flores is starting at shortstop and hitting sixth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerome Williams Tuesday, Aug. 25. SS Ruben Tejada will start on the bench. Also, 2B Kelly Johnson is starting at second base and hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets are riding an offensive wave right now and had a franchise-high eight home runs last night, including two by Flores ($4,500, 9.0% of cap), who now has 14 dingers on the season. Stacking Mets hitters is smart on FantasyScore tonight, including value plays of Flores and Johnson ($3,300, 6.6% of cap).

Mets | Wilmer Flores starting at the keystone

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 12:42:10 -0700

New York Mets SS Wilmer Flores is starting at second base and batting fifth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan Monday, Aug. 24. 2B Kelly Johnson is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Flores ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) owns a .328/.366/.507 slash line through his past 20 games, but his recent success is reflected in his salary at FantasyScore. He is worth considering in daily formats, but he isn't a lineup lock, either. Flores has out hit Johnson ($3,300, 6.6% of cap), as the newcomer has a a .210/.258/.371 over 20 games since joining the Mets. Johnson should be reserved for NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues.

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 | Kelly Johnson sitting vs. Baltimore

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 13:49:32 -0700

New York Mets 2B Kelly Johnson is not starting Wednesday, Aug. 19. 3B Juan Uribe draws into the lineup at third base and is batting fifth against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) hasn't caught any traction at the plate with New York. He owns a .189/.232/.377 slash line over 56 plate appearances since joining the Mets. Likewise, Uribe ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has been a disaster since joining the Mets, as he has gone 11-for-65 with a .229 on-base percentage. Don't fret looking elsewhere at FantasyScore Wednesday, and seasonal owners should be seeking replacements.

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.
