Mets | Lucas Duda out a while

Mon, 23 May 2016 13:49:27 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) will be out four to six weeks with a lower back stress fracture, according to manager Terry Collins. INF Ty Kelly will be part of a committee at first base with 3B Eric Campbell in the short term. SS Wilmer Flores (hamstring) is expected to start the majority of games there once he returns from the disabled list. OF Michael Conforto will also work out at first base in anticipation of playing some games there, according to Collins. 3B David Wright is not a consideration.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly was mashing at Class AAA Las Vegas (.391/.478/.548), but his stay is likely to be short. Don't overvalue him in NL-only leagues. Flores has some surprising pop for a middle infielder and could become even more attractive with first base eligibility as depth in cavernous mixed and NL-only affairs. Make sure to stash Duda everywhere because of his 30-homer potential.

Mets | Wilmer Flores to begin rehab assignment

Sat, 21 May 2016 12:30:30 -0700

New York Mets INF Wilmer Flores (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment Tuesday, May 24, and he is expected to be activated from the disabled list Friday, May 27, according to manager Terry Collins.

Fantasy Tip: Flores was just 9-for-50 (.180) with a home run and two RBI before landing on the disabled list with a left hamstring injury. That being said, the 24-year-old possesses upside because of his positional versatility and power and should remain stashed in NL-only and deep mixed leagues.

Mets | Wilmer Flores headed to DL

Thu, 12 May 2016 06:21:00 -0700

New York Mets SS Wilmer Flores (hamstring) is expected to land on the disabled list Thursday, May 12, with a left hamstring injury.

Fantasy Tip: The team will likely have to bring up Dilson Herrera from Class AAA Las Vegas to cover the middle infield. He's hitting .301 on the farm and has some speed. He probably won't log enough time to be more than an occasional DFS streamer in good matchups.

Mets | Neil Walker out of lineup again

Mon, 09 May 2016 16:48:37 -0700

New York Mets 2B Neil Walker (shin) is not in the lineup Monday, May 9, against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Scott Kazmir. SS Wilmer Flores is starting in his place and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: It's the second straight game out for Walker, who was able to enter the game on Sunday as a pinch hitter, so this certainly isn't some sort of severe injury. Despite a breakout season last year, Flores has been extremely disappointing for the Mets in 2016, albeit as a part-time player, as he has just seven hits in 44 at-bats. He's not worth adding anywhere.

Mets | David Wright, Neil Walker take a seat

Sun, 08 May 2016 12:26:41 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright and 2B Neil Walker (shin) are not in the lineup on Sunday, May 08, against San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner. SS Asdrubal Cabrera will move up into Wright's usual second spot in the order, while 3B Eric Campbell will take a turn at third base and bat eighth. INF Wilmer Flores draws the start in place of Walker and hit sixth.

Fantasy Tip: It's a rest day for Wright, but Walker is sitting out as a result of taking a few foul balls off of his shin on Saturday. Campbell and Flores are both batting below .200 and should be avoided in DFS as well as regular fantasy formats.

Mets | Michael Conforto, Neil Walker sitting

Fri, 06 May 2016 16:45:52 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto and 2B Neil Walker are not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres left-handed SP Drew Pomeranz Friday, May 6. OF Juan Lagares is starting in center field and is hitting second, while SS Wilmer Flores is at the keystone and is batting seventh. OF Yoenis Cespedes shifts to left field.

Fantasy Tip: Flores is the more attractive daily gamble as a deep sleeper because of his power abilities, but neither he nor Lagares will be considered by many tonight against Pomeranz.

Mets | David Wright sits out

Wed, 04 May 2016 07:19:43 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 4, with INF Wilmer Flores hitting seventh. C Kevin Plawecki is also out with C Rene Rivera hitting eighth. SS Asdrubal Cabrera moved up to hit second.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Flores nor Rivera are worth streaming against Jhoulys Chacin in DFS. Cabrera has a .307-1-7 line on the season and is a mediocre option in DFS.

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 | David Wright not starting Saturday

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 09:58:02 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain Saturday, April 30. INF Wilmer Flores will bat seventh and play the hot corner.

Fantasy Tip: Flores has struggled mightily at the plate this season, going 2-for-24 with six strikeouts through his first 11 games. Avoid using him in all fantasy formats while he's in the midst of a slump. Expect Wright to return to the lineup Sunday, May 1.

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).
