New York Mets 3B Jose Reyes (rib cage), C Travis d'Arnaud and OF Michael Conforto are out of the lineup Thursday, July 28. OF Juan Lagares leads off, C Rene Rivera is hitting seventh and OF Alejandro De Aza hits eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Lagares hits .271 against lefties, and he's a low-end flyer against Tyler Anderson. Rivera and De Aza aren't attractive options in DFS.

New York Mets SS Jose Reyes, OF Curtis Granderson and OF Michael Conforto are not in the starting lineup for the second game of a doubleheader against the St. Louis Cardinals Tuesday, July 26. OF Juan Lagares will start in center field and is batting first in the lineup against Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia. SS Wilmer Flores will start at third base and is batting fourth, while OF Alejandro De Aza will start in right field and is batting seventh.
Fantasy Tip: Lagares, Flores and De Aza have all struggled at the plate over the last seven days and should not be considered by owners in most mixed leagues.

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22. OF Juan Lagares is starting in center field and batting eighth against Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley Friday.
Fantasy Tip: Conforto doesn't project to see many starts against southpaws, but he's still a viable option in deep mixed and NL-only leagues. He also owns the upside to be owned universally. Lagares has limited fantasy value batting eighth Friday, and he sits with an underwhelming .254/.299/.413 slash line for the season.

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto is starting in right field and is hitting seventh against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta Tuesday, July 19.
Fantasy Tip: Conforto hit well in the minors and appears to have confidence back at the plate. He was hitting just .226 but did have 10 homers and 30 RBI in 66 games before his demotion, though. Check to see if Conforto is available in your league. He's worth a flier in most fantasy formats, although he's likely to ride the pine against lefties. It's a tough matchup against Arrieta this evening, though, so avoiding him in DFS would be wise.

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto will get time in center field, with OF Yoenis Cespedes expressing a desire to solely play left field for remainder of the season, according to manager Terry Collins.
Fantasy Tip: It makes sense, as Cespedes has been banged up and a switch to right field would be less taxing on his legs compared to keeping him in center. Conforto, meanwhile, benefits from this, though he'll have to reprove himself first to fantasy owners before he can be plugged into starting lineups again in most leagues.
