Mets | Wilmer Flores starting vs. Miami

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 12:42:02 -0700

New York Mets INF Wilmer Flores is starting at first base and batting fourth against Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley Friday, July 22. Mets 1B James Loney is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Flores is scorching hot and pushing for more playing time with an active 14-for-34 run at the plate that's yielded nine runs, seven home runs and 13 RBI. He should be owned in all deep mixed and NL-only leagues. Loney is nothing more than a fringe starter in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, and he could begin to lose starts to Flores.

Mets | Wilmer Flores draws in at first base

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 13:03:53 -0700

New York Mets INF Wilmer Flores is starting at first base and batting fifth against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester Monday, July 18. 1B James Loney is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: With an excellent .300/.364/.580 slash line against southpaws this season, Flores is a strong fantasy option in all formats Monday, including daily contests. He's receiving enough playing time to be a low-end starter in deep mixed leagues, and he should be owned and started in all cavernous mixed and NL-only formats. Loney is best viewed as a desperation starter in similar deep seasonal leagues.

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 | Wilmer Flores on the bench

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 12:53:32 -0700

New York Mets INF Wilmer Flores is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 7. SS Asdrubal Cabrera (personal) returns to shortstop and is hitting sixth, while 1B James Loney is at first base and batting fifth against Washington Nationals SP Lucas Giolito.

Fantasy Tip: Despite a hot streak of late (.375 average, four homers, seven RBI in July), Flores will lose fantasy luster with uncertain playing time now that Jose Reyes is the regular third baseman. Flores could split time with Loney or around the infield, but he's more of a depth option now in deep mixed and NL-only leagues.

Mets | Asdrubal Cabrera scratched Wednesday

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 10:04:01 -0700

New York Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) was scratched Wednesday, July 6, and 1B James Loney has entered the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Loney faces fellow lefty Justin Nicolino today, and he is actually hitting .300 in 20 at-bats against left-handers this season. He hit .266 against them from 2013-15, and Loney is a low-end option in DFS.

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 | James Loney drives in three

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 05:22:22 -0700

New York Mets 1B James Loney went 3-for-5 with one home run and three RBI against the Chicago Cubs Friday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Loney has been productive at the plate with at least one hit in 10 of his last 11 games with nine RBI during that span. He should be used in all NL-only leagues and may have some value in deeper mixed leagues because of his high average.

Mets | Big night for James Loney

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 20:45:11 -0700

New York Mets 1B James Loney went 2-for-3 with a home run, a double, three RBI and three runs scored in an 8-6 win over the Atlanta Braves Friday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Loney won't provide much power, but he is hitting .305 and is worth a look in NL-only formats thanks to his solid average.

Mets | James Loney batting third vs. Braves

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 12:46:57 -0700

New York Mets 1B James Loney is batting third against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Thursday, June 23.

Fantasy Tip: Despite a decent .289/.333/.408 slash line, Loney has just six runs and five RBI through his first six games with the Mets. He isn't an option outside of cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, but he's a potential low-priced flier for daily contests hitting third Thursday.

Mets | Three hits for James Loney

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 20:45:10 -0700

New York Mets 1B James Loney went 3-for-3 with two doubles, a triple, a run scored and a walk in a 4-3 loss to the Atlanta Braves Saturday, June 18, extending his hitting streak to seven games.

Fantasy Tip: Loney's complete lack of power limits his fantasy appeal, but his decent average could make him worth a look in AL-only leagues.
