Tue, 26 Jul 2016 10:05:18 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud is not in the starting lineup for Game 1 of the doubleheader Tuesday, July 26. C Rene Rivera is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Following the postponed game Monday, July 25, D'Arnaud is out of the lineup again. View d'Arnaud as a viable starting catcher in the majority of seasonal leagues. It's worth adding the backstop has been the subject of trade rumors recently. Rivera is nothing more than a desperation start in all fantasy formats given his career .590 OPS over eight seasons.

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 20:11:16 -0700

New York Mets C Rene Rivera went 3-for-4 with an RBI Tuesday, July 19, against the Chicago Cubs. It wasn't all great, as he was charged with his first error of the season on an errant throw.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the big game Rivera remains nothing more than a No. 2 receiver in deeper NL-only fantasy leagues and as a salary saver 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 | Two Mets starters sitting out

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 09:12:43 -0700

New York Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera and C Travis d'Arnaud are not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester Sunday, July 3. SS Matthew Reynolds will start at shortstop and is batting seventh, while C Rene Rivera will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds has only two hits in his last 10 games but received only a few starts during that span. He probably can be avoided in all leagues. Rivera is hitting .182 this season and is not a great fantasy option.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud sitting vs. Nats

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 14:02:54 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 29. C Rene Rivera is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud is 5-for-22 with three RBI since returning from the disabled list. Remain patient with the impact backstop in all settings, as he has nice power potential from the position. Over the past two years, Rivera has a .180/.223/.279 slash line through 392 plate appearances, so against Scherzer, Rivera is an ill-advised fantasy option.
