Mets | Neil Walker comes alive at plate

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 21:34:29 -0700

New York Mets 2B Neil Walker went 3-for-3 with a walk and RBI Wednesday, July 27, against the St. Louis Cardinals to snap out of his funk at the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Walker's batting average tumbled from .264 to .244 since July 3 thanks to an awful 4-for-48 slide. He needed this big game for his impatient fantasy owners, and hopefully it's the start of a hot streak.

Mets | Kelly Johnson starting vs. Cardinals

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 10:11:40 -0700

New York Mets 2B/OF Kelly Johnson is starting at second base and batting fifth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez for Game 1 of the doubleheader Tuesday, July 26. 2B Neil Walker is not in the starting lineup Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: After the postponed game Monday, Johnson is right back in the starting lineup Tuesday. He's 20-for-63 at the dish with a .524 slugging percentage since joining the Mets, and this is the second consecutive game Johnson has started at second base. His value is rising in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. Walker has gone 2-for-27 since the All-Star break and owns a .168/.233/.234 slash line over his past 120 plate appearances. At this point, he isn't a worthy starter in the majority of fantasy leagues.

Mets | Kelly Johnson starting again at keystone

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 12:22:01 -0700

New York Mets 2B/OF Kelly Johnson is starting at second base and batting fifth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez Monday, July 25. 2B Neil Walker is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is 20-for-63 at the dish with a .524 slugging percentage since joining the Mets, and this is the second consecutive game Johnson has started at second base. His value is rising in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. Walker has hit an absolute wall. He's 2-for-27 since the All-Star break and owns a .168/.233/.234 slash line over his past 120 plate appearances. At this point, Walker isn't a worthy starter in most fantasy leagues.

Mets | No Neil Walker vs. Miami

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 07:55:02 -0700

New York Mets 2B Neil Walker is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 24. 2B/OF Kelly Johnson is starting at second base and batting fifth against Miami Marlins SP Jose Urena Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Walker has fallen off a cliff offensively since mid-June and owns a .168/.233/.234 slash line with just three extra-base hits through his past 120 plate appearances. He's replaceable in most mixed leagues. Johnson is 20-for-60 since joining the Mets this season, and he is a potential flier in daily contests Sunday.

Mets | Neil Walker out vs. Cubs

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 08:58:50 -0700

New York Mets 2B Neil Walker is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. 2B Kelly Johnson is starting at the keystone and batting sixth against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Walker is mired in a 4-for-34 funk with a .431 OPS over his past 10 games, and after hitting nine home runs in April, he's hit just seven since. View Walker as a fringe starter at the keystone in the majority of seasonal leagues. Johnson isn't receiving enough playing time to be anything more than a desperation own in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. He's not a priority in daily contests Wednesday, too.

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 | Neil Walker snaps drought

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 19:32:16 -0700

New York Mets 2B Neil Walker snapped a five-game hitless drought, finishing 2-for-2 with a walk in a 4-3 loss to the Atlanta Braves Thursday, June 23.

Fantasy Tip: Walker has decent pop for a middle infielder, and he is worth owning in most mixed leagues.
