Mets | Four starters sitting for Mets

Mon, 30 May 2016 07:44:52 -0700

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson, OF Michael Conforto, 3B Eric Campbell and C Kevin Plawecki are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Monday, May 30. OF Juan Lagares will start in center field and is batting first in the lineup. SS Wilmer Flores will start at first base and is batting fifth. OF Alejandro De Aza will start in left field and is batting sixth, while C Rene Rivera will start at catcher and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares has four hits in his last three games and has recorded two home runs and four RBI during that span. He should be a sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues. De Aza, Flores and Rivera are all hitting under .200 this season and probably can be avoided by owners.

Mets | Michael Conforto not playing Sunday

Sun, 29 May 2016 15:08:23 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto is not in the starting lineup against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday, May 29. OF Juan Lagares will play in center and bat fifth against Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw.

Fantasy Tip: Conforto is on the bench to start Sunday night because of the matchup against the lefty Kershaw. Put him on your bench for the night. Lagares is a .333-2-4 hitter in May but does not play often enough to merit serious fantasy value or consideration.

Mets | Juan Lagares homers Friday

Fri, 27 May 2016 19:16:37 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares hit a three-run homer in a victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Although Lagares is known as a defensive-minded player, he is batting .300 through his first 70 at-bats of 2016. He should be viewed as a source of productive cap relief in DFS.

Mets | No Michael Conforto vs. lefty

Fri, 27 May 2016 13:53:27 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers left-handed SP Julio Urias Friday, May 27. OF Juan Lagares draws into center field and is batting sixth. OF Yoenis Cespedes shifts over to left field and is hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares isn't terrible with the lumber, but he's much better with the glove. He's hitting .273 but has very little power upside. That makes him not all that attractive as a low-priced flyer in daily games, especially facing a young pitching phenom in his major league debut. Cespedes should be started with confidence everywhere.

Mets | Michael Conforto, Lucas Duda out of lineup

Mon, 23 May 2016 12:30:28 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto and 1B Lucas Duda (back) are not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals left-handed SP Gio Gonzalez Monday, May 23. OF Juan Lagares is starting in center field and batting second with OF Yoenis Cespedes shifting to left field. 3B Eric Campbell is starting at first base and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares is more known for his defense but could be a sleeper consideration hitting out of the two-hole in daily lineups. Campbell has only nine hits in 42 at-bats this year (.214) and should be avoided.

Mets | Michael Conforto sitting vs. Nats

Wed, 18 May 2016 14:13:29 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 18. OF Juan Lagares is starting in center field and batting second against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: It has been a rough second month of the season for Conforto. He has a .137/.241/.216 slash line and just two home runs and three RBI. It isn't out of the question to suggest a sophomore slump could be catching up to him. Lagares posted a .273/.333/.438 line through 132 plate appearances against lefties last season and batting second makes him a potential low-priced flier in daily contests Wednesday.

Mets | Michael Conforto, Lucas Duda both out

Thu, 12 May 2016 15:55:15 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto (rest) and 1B Lucas Duda (rest) are not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 12, versus Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw. 3B Eric Campbell gets the start at first base, batting eighth, while OF Juan Lagares is in center field and hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: This is just standard protocol for the Mets whenever they face a left-handed pitcher, as Conforto and Duda both struggle against southpaws. And whenever this is the case, let alone opposite the best pitcher in the game, owners can immediately look past it. Campbell is basically the definition of a dead bat, while Lagares typically has a low ceiling, being known more for his glove.

Mets | Curtis Granderson, Lucas Duda resting

Tue, 10 May 2016 15:48:07 -0700

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson and 1B Lucas Duda are not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers left-handed SP Alex Wood Tuesday, May 10. OF Juan Lagares is starting in right field and hitting leadoff, while 3B Eric Campbell is starting at first base and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Wood has struggled mightily in the Dodgers rotation, but both Lagares and Campbell remain low-end daily commodities. If you're going to choose one as a deep sleeper to save you some salary cap space, it should be Lagares at the top of the order. But keep in mind he's much more useful to the Mets for his glove and not his bat.

Mets | Michael Conforto not playing Monday

Mon, 09 May 2016 15:58:32 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto (rest) is not in the starting batting order Monday, May 9. OF Juan Lagares gets the start instead opposite Los Angeles Dodgers SP Scott Kazmir. He's batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: This is just the standard for when the Mets tangle with a left-handed starter, as Conforto doesn't hit southpaws well. Lagares, however, is not an ideal plugin for daily leagues, considering he's really just an average hitter at best.

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.
