Mets | Wilmer Flores draws out of the lineup

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 07:47:37 -0700

New York Mets SS Wilmer Flores is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 30. 3B Juan Uribe is playing third base and batting sixth against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Flores ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has been a touch inconsistent game to game, but he sports a .364/.378/.659 slash line with 11 runs and 10 RBI over his past 10 games. Uribe ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) draws in with a respectable .879 OPS against lefties this season, but he still shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a dice roll at FantasyScore Sunday.

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 | Daniel Murphy sitting vs. Red Sox

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 13:28:09 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. SS Wilmer Flores is starting at shortstop and batting sixth against Boston Red Sox SP Henry Owens Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Murphy ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. The Mets have been playing musical chairs with their lineup over the past two weeks, and it is working, as they're currently one of the best offenses in the league. Whoever is starting is worth a long look at FantasyScore, including Flores ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) Friday.

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 drives in five runs

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 21:54:02 -0700

New York Mets 2B Wilmer Flores went 3-for-6 with a double, two home runs and five RBIs with three runs scored Monday, Aug. 24, against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Fantasy Tip: Flores ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has turned up the intensity over the past five games, driving in at least one run in each outing. He is 11-for-23 (.478) with three doubles, three homers and 10 RBIs during the impressive five-game run to make him a slam-dunk FantasyScore play until he cools off.

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 | Wilmer Flores at SS again

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 14:37:45 -0700

New York Mets SS Wilmer Flores is starting at shortstop again and hitting fifth against Colorado Rockies SP Jon Gray Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Flores ($3,600, 7.2% of cap), who has 12 home runs on the year, has much more offensive upside than Ruben Tejada, and the playing time recently indicates that. At Coors Field against a rookie pitcher, Flores isn't a bad option to save you money at other positions tonight.

Mets | Ruben Tejada resting Tuesday

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 13:50:31 -0700

New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 18. SS Wilmer Flores is starting at the 6 and hitting ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman.

Fantasy Tip: Flores ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) can be a sneaky shortstop play on FantasyScore because of his surprising power numbers, but while hitting ninth in the batting order, his daily value is limited.

Mets | Wilmer Flores starting at shortstop

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 13:17:36 -0700

New York Mets SS Wilmer Flores is starting at shortstop and hitting seventh against Pittsburgh Pirates SP J.A. Happ Friday, Aug. 14. SS Ruben Tejada is starting on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Flores ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has surprising power for a utility middle infielder, and he should be on your radar as a sleeper shortstop play if you're looking to save a little money at the position. He's also hitting .299 (23-for-77) with four of his 11 home runs against southpaws.
