New York Mets OF Michael Conforto was recalled from Class AAA Las Vegas before the team's game Sunday, July 17. OF Brandon Nimmo was sent to Las Vegas in a corresponding roster move.
Fantasy Tip: Between June 25 and now, Conforto hit 344 with nine extra-base hits and 15 RBIs in the minor leagues. Has he found his stroke? Only Conforto knows that. Still, you should give Conforto a shot in DFS and regular leagues based on his past performance. Keep Nimmo close by on your roster, however, just in case Conforto is ineffective or ends up hurt.

New York Mets OF Brandon Nimmo and C Travis d'Arnaud are not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Zach Eflin Sunday, July 17. OF Yoenis Cespedes will start at left field, while OF Juan Lagares will start at center field and is batting seventh. C Rene Rivera will start at catcher and is batting eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Lagares is hitting .200 with one home run and one RBI this month and is not a strong option in most fantasy leagues. Rivera has only two hits in his last 11 at-bats and should only be used in two-catcher leagues.

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.

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.

New York Mets OF Brandon Nimmo is not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester Sunday, July 3. OF Yoenis Cespedes will start in left field, while OF Juan Lagares will start in center field and is batting first.
Fantasy Tip: Lagares was activated from the disabled list recently and should receive playing time against left-handed pitchers. He has a decent .286 average but only two home runs and six RBI on the season. Owners in most leagues should be able to find a better option.
