Mets | Noah Syndergaard slow to the plate

Mon, 02 May 2016 10:59:24 -0700

New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard has trouble holding runners because of his slow delivery to the plate, and opposing basestealers are 12-for-13 off him this year. The San Francisco Giants stole three bases off Syndergaard in his outing Sunday, May 1. He's on pace to allow 78 steals over 30 starts.

Fantasy Tip: Thor remains one of the best young pitchers in baseball despite his struggles keeping runners close. It shouldn't affect his fantasy value at all, although it could lead to more runs being scored off of him in certain situations. Despite the loss Sunday, Syndergaard is a must-start in all matchups.

Mets | Giants stop Noah Syndergaard's thunder

Sun, 01 May 2016 14:13:27 -0700

New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard endured his worst outing of the season on Sunday, May 1, against the San Francisco Giants, giving up four runs on five hits and a pair of walks across 5 2/3 innings en route to his first loss of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Syndergaard did strike out six, but he hasn't been quite the dominant pitcher in either of his last two starts that he was over his first three outings, when he went 2-0 with a 0.90 ERA. Thor stands an outstanding chance of putting the hammer down in his next turn, however, as he gets the San Diego Padres in PETCO Park on Friday.

Giants | Buster Posey rips Mets

Sun, 01 May 2016 14:04:59 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey went 2-for-4 with a solo shot and scored twice against the New York Mets on Sunday, May 01.

Fantasy Tip: Posey could be doing a little bit better in the RBI department (eight), but he's pretty well locked in at the plate right now and proving again why he is one of the best fantasy catchers in the business. He's a very good bet to keep it going against the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park on Monday.

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 | Jacob deGrom caps solid April

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 22:37:23 -0700

New York Mets RP Jacob deGrom allowed three runs, all unearned, and allowed two hits in six innings Saturday, April 30, in a 6-5 win over the San Francisco Giants. He has a 1.02 earned run average.

Fantasy Tip: DeGrom has been solid despite overcoming a lat injury and time off due to his newborn son's health issues. Right now, he remains a strong fantasy start thanks to his team's sterling offense.

Mets | Michael Conforto on doubles tear

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 22:25:57 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto hit a double in his sixth straight game Saturday, April 30, in a 6-5 win over the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Conforto also singled and hit a home run in the game. He is batting .365 from the third spot in the lineup, making him a great fantasy value in daily and regular leagues. He is a main reason why the Mets offense is sparking.

Mets | Jeurys Familia perfect in relief

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 22:19:28 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia picked up his eighth save in as many chances Saturday, April 30, in a 6-5 win over the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Familia has been just about perfect on the mound this season, and he should be picked up in any league where available. Familia is also an automatic option in daily leagues where closers are available to play.

Mets | Rene Rivera catching Saturday

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 10:16:33 -0700

New York Mets C Rene Rivera will start behind the plate and bat eighth against San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain Saturday, April 30.

Fantasy Tip: Rivera is starting instead of C Kevin Plawecki because the club is playing a day game following a night game. He should be viewed as nothing more than an inexpensive flier 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 | Steven Matz shuts down Frisco

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 22:54:28 -0700

New York Mets SP Steven Matz scattered seven hits and three walks over six scoreless innings with four strikeouts in a win Friday, April 29, against the San Francisco Giants to move to 3-1.

Fantasy Tip: Matz was blasted for seven runs in just 1 2/3 innings in his first start of the season April 11, but he is 3-0 with a 0.93 ERA in three outings since. He has re-emerged as a must-start in NL-only leagues, most mixed formats and DFS play.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes drives in six runs

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 22:53:56 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes extended his hitting streak to nine games in a big way, going 2-for-4 with a grand slam and six RBIs Friday, April 29, against the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes is 13-for-34 (.382) with nine runs scored, six homers and 20 RBIs during his impressive nine-game hitting streak. He is on fire right now, and is a DFS must-have regardless of the price tag.

Mets | Michael Conforto stays hot

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 22:53:28 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto went 2-for-5 with a double, two runs scored and two RBIs Friday, April 29, against the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Conforto is hitting .444 with six runs scored, a home run and seven RBIs during his current seven-game hitting streak. He has emerged as a must-start in all fantasy leagues and DFS play.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes still not 100%

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 15:38:32 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes is still not 100% and the bruise on his right leg still exists. "I don't know how we're going to monitor it, because when the game goes on, you've got to just react," manager Terry Collins said Friday, April 29. "I just told him ... take it easy. Because I don't need him back in that training room."

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes isn't likely to be hindered at the plate, which is most important to his fantasy stock. However, he could see more routine days off in the near future, and if he aggravates the injury, he could miss additional time. For now, though, return the slugger to your lineups with confidence. He has 12 runs, six home runs and 17 RBI with a .300/.373/.683 slash line to start the season, after all.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes starting vs. Giants

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 12:28:08 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes (knee) is starting in center field and batting fourth against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes missed five games with the injury, but he also blasted a pinch-hit home run during the absence, so you shouldn't fret any lingering issues with the injury. Cespedes has 12 runs, six home runs and 17 RBI with a .300/.373/.683 slash line to start the season and checks out as a solid option in all formats.

Mets | David Wright abandoned leg kick

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 12:02:25 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright started using a leg kick this spring in order to alleviate some of the strain his torque-heavy swing put on his back. The move also was sought to find a "rhythm" that he thought his swing was lacking last season. However, Wright abandoned the leg kick Tuesday, April 26, for the first time this year. Heading into Tuesday Wright ranked second in the National League with 26 strikeouts. With his leg kick, he wasn't using the middle of the field like he had before in his career, hitting the ball to the center of the field just 17% of the time.

Fantasy Tip: Wright had a hot start to the year but has since gone 4-for-26 (.154) with no home runs and three RBI in his last six games. His average is down to .232 with two home runs. Wright's injury issues are well-documented in the past few years, and his skills at the plate have declined with age. You shouldn't have been expecting much more than low-end third base output from Wright from the beginning.
