Mets | Travis d'Arnaud sitting vs. Nats

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 14:02:54 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 29. C Rene Rivera is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud is 5-for-22 with three RBI since returning from the disabled list. Remain patient with the impact backstop in all settings, as he has nice power potential from the position. Over the past two years, Rivera has a .180/.223/.279 slash line through 392 plate appearances, so against Scherzer, Rivera is an ill-advised fantasy option.

Mets | Several NYM regulars resting Sunday

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 08:43:10 -0700

New York Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera, OF Curtis Granderson and C Travis d'Arnaud are not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Bud Norris Sunday, June 26. INF/OF Kelly Johnson will bat leadoff and play left field, INF Matthew Reynolds will play shortstop and bat second, OF Brandon Nimmo will play right field and bat seventh and C Rene Rivera will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds is 7-for-20 with a home run and six RBI during the month of June and is worth considering as a value play for daily fantasy lineups. Nimmo will be making his MLB debut and possesses plenty of upside, so he could be worth taking a flier on in DFS as well. Johnson and Rivera are a combined 1-for-11 versus Norris and should be avoided Sunday.

Mets | Two Mets idle Wednesday

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 08:04:03 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto and C Travis d'Arnaud are out of the lineup Wednesday, June 22. 3B Wilmer Flores moves up to hit fifth, OF Matthew Reynolds hits seventh and C Rene Rivera hits eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Flores hits lefties pretty well, and he faces lefty Danny Duffy today. He's worth the low-end consideration hitting fifth. Reynolds and Rivera aren't worth DFS consideration.

Mets | Three Mets starters sitting out

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 09:42:49 -0700

New York Mets 2B Neil Walker, SS Asdrubal Cabrera and C Rene Rivera are not in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Zach Davies Sunday, June 12. INF Matt Reynolds will start at shortstop and is batting second. 2B Kelly Johnson will start at second base and is batting fourth, while C Kevin Plawecki will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Plawecki and Johnson have posted decent numbers over the last seven days. Johnson should be considered by owners in daily fantasy lineups, while Plawecki can be used in two-catcher leagues. Reynolds is not a strong fantasy option and should be avoided in all leagues.

Mets | Michael Conforto, Neil Walker back in lineup

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 10:07:59 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto and 2B Neil Walker are back in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Wily Peralta Saturday, June 11. In addition, C Rene Rivera will start behind the plate and bat eighth, with C Kevin Plawecki receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Conforto is 4-for-31 (.129) with 11 strikeouts at the plate this month and is just batting .158 in 114 at-bats since May 1, so he should be avoided this afternoon. Walker is also experiencing a cold streak of his own, with just four hits in 22 at-bats over the past week. Rivera should be viewed as nothing more than an inexpensive flier option in DFS contests.

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 15:59:31 -0700

New York Mets C Rene Rivera is not in the starting lineup for the second game of a doubleheader against the Pittsburgh Pirates Tuesday, June 7. C Kevin Plawecki will start at catcher and is batting eighth against Pirates SP Juan Nicasio.

Fantasy Tip: Plawecki has at least one hit in four of his last five games and may be a decent starting option for desperate owners in daily fantasy leagues.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes remains sidelined Sunday

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 08:15:16 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes (hip) remains out of the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez Sunday, June 5. OF Alejandro De Aza will lead off and play center field. In addition, C Rene Rivera will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes should be considered day-to-day because of a sore right hip. De Aza and Rivera are hitting .208 and .194 respectively and are nothing more than desperation sources of cap relief for DFS contests.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes, Kevin Plawecki out

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 07:54:16 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes and C Kevin Plawecki are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Miguel Gonzalez Wednesday, June 1. OF Juan Lagares will start in center field and is batting sixth, while C Rene Rivera will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares is batting .308 with two home runs and four RBI over the last seven days and should be a decent starting candidate in daily fantasy leagues. Rivera has only two hits in his last five games and should be avoided in all leagues.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud nearing rehab games

Tue, 31 May 2016 10:23:27 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (shoulder) is nearing his first game action since April 25, and he could start a rehab assignment this weekend. C Kevin Plawecki is likely to go down to Class AAA Las Vegas when d'Arnaud returns from the disabled list, as Plawecki is hitting only .196/.295/.272 in 105 plate appearances. C Rene Rivera has drawn positive reviews and is batting .148/.281/.259.

Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud's injury history is frustrating and unbecoming to his fantasy owners, but he must remain stashed in all formats because of his offensive upside. D'Arnaud hit .268 with 12 home runs and 41 RBI last year for the Mets.

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.
