Mets | Lucac Duda hits a pair of home runs

Wed, 04 May 2016 13:38:23 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI during the Mets' 8-0 win over the Atlanta Braves Wednesday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Duda is up to seven home runs and 18 RBI with a .258/.299/.528 slash line for the season, and he remains a viable starting option at first base in the majority of seasonal leagues. He is a streaky hitter, but Duda will flirt with 30 home runs and 85 RBI at the end of the season. He holds less value in head-to-head formats because of his inconsistency at the dish, though.

Mets | Several NYM regulars resting Sunday

Sun, 01 May 2016 07:36:28 -0700

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson, SS Asdrubal Cabrera and 1B Lucas Duda are not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner Sunday, May 1. OF Juan Lagares will bat leadoff and play right field, INF Wilmer Flores will bat sixth and play shortstop and INF Eric Campbell will bat eighth and play first base. In addition, C Kevin Plawecki has returned to the lineup and will bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Granderson and Duda are resting because a left-handed pitcher is on the mound, while the switch-hitting Cabrera is receiving his first off day of the regular season. Of the replacements in Sunday's lineup, only Lagares has experienced any success at the plate this year, batting .281 with two extra-base hits and two RBI through his first 32 at-bats. Lagares should be viewed as an inexpensive flier option in daily fantasy contests.

Mets | Lucas Duda out Tuesday

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 13:36:05 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda is not in the lineup Tuesday, April 26, against the Cincinnati Reds. SS Wilmer Flores replaced Duda and will bat sixth against Reds SP Brandon Finnegan.

Fantasy Tip: Duda is out due to the lefty vs. lefty matchup, although he may pinch-hit later in the game. Still, daily owners should leave Duda off their roster. Flores has little fantasy value (.143 average in the last week, .174 for the season).

Mets | Lucas Duda, Yoenis Cespedes go deep

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 23:54:52 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and OF Yoenis Cespedes was 2-for-6 with a solo homer Wednesday, April 20, against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Fantasy Tip: The two went back-to-back in the fifth inning off Philadelphia's Jeremy Hellickson. Duda and Cespedes are must-start fantasy options in most formats, and they're great DFS plays.

Mets | Lucas Duda takes a seat

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 07:48:28 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda is out of the lineup Wednesday, April 13, with SS Wilmer Flores playing first and hitting fifth. 2B Neil Walker moves up into Duda's cleanup spot. C Travis d'Arnaud also has the day off, and C Kevin Plawecki is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Duda is out against lefty Adam Conley, and Walker has enhanced DFS value at cleanup. Flores is an iffy DFS option, but his place in the lineup makes him a consideration for a basement play. Plawecki isn't a strong fantasy consideration.

Mets | Lucas Duda, Michael Conforto playing Sunday

Sun, 27 Mar 2016 07:57:57 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (neck) and OF Michael Conforto (back) are back in the starting lineup against the Washington Nationals Sunday, March 27.

Fantasy Tip: Duda will once again serve as New York's everyday first baseman and is a decent source of power, though he is prone to experience lengthy hot and cold stretches during the year. Conforto has an excellent chance to serve as a starting outfielder this season, although his struggles against left-handed pitching may lead to him platooning in left field. Both players should be available during the later middle rounds of drafts for mixed fantasy leagues.

Mets | Lucas Duda remains out

Sat, 26 Mar 2016 05:49:06 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (neck) will not be able to play against the Atlanta Braves Saturday, March 26, but said he will be able to play Sunday, March 27.

Fantasy Tip: Duda has been a solid source of power for the team over the last few seasons and will be the everyday first baseman again this season. He should be a fine corner infielder option in mixed leagues this season.

Mets | Lucas Duda scratched with stiff neck

Fri, 25 Mar 2016 13:23:49 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (neck) did not play Friday, March 25, because of a stiff neck. The injury is not considered serious.

Fantasy Tip: Duda has slugged 57 home runs with 165 RBI and a .249/.350/.483 slash line over the past two seasons. He can be maddeningly inconsistent, though, so be prepared to endure lengthy slumps. He is still an excellent target in the late middle rounds, especially if you're after power numbers.

Mets | Lucas Duda deserves full-time role

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 16:39:59 -0800

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda deserves everyday playing time against left-handed pitchers after he hit .285 with seven home runs against southpaws in 2015 in 123 at-bats, in the opinion of ESPNNewYork.com's Adam Rubin.

Fantasy Tip: Duda is once again a candidate to slug 30 home runs, and his improvements against lefties are a big reason why. However, he's prone to long slumps and is known as a streaky hitter, so be prepared to live with that if you own him.

Mets | Lucas Duda avoids arbitration

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 19:54:55 -0800

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda has avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year deal with the team worth $6.725 million.

Fantasy Tip: Duda had been looking for a one-year deal worth $7.5 million, while the club initially countered with a $5.9 million offer. He hit .244 with 27 home runs and 73 RBIs in 135 regular-season games last season and should be available to be drafted in the middle rounds of mixed fantasy leagues.
