New York Mets INF Kelly Johnson will bat fifth and play second base against Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly Saturday, Aug. 29. INF Wilmer Flores, who started at second base Friday, Aug. 28, will play shortstop Saturday.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is only hitting .219 with three home runs and six RBIs in 73 at-bats since joining the club, so he isn't a recommended option in FantasyScore this afternoon. On the other hand, Flores ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is batting .393 with two homers and seven RBIs over the past week and should be considered for daily lineups.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is batting .346 with a home run and seven RBIs over the past seven days and is 2-for-3 in his career versus Kelly, making him a solid value play in FantasyScore this afternoon.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 10:02:25 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Wright ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is 6-for-20 since coming off the disabled list but the Mets will try to make sure he gets an adequate amount of rest down the stretch. Uribe ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is batting just .157 during the month of August and should be avoided in FantasyScore unless you really need the cap space.

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto will bat seventh and play left field against Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly Saturday, Aug. 29. OF Curtis Granderson, who played left field Friday, Aug. 28, will start in center field, with OF Juan Lagares getting the day off.
Fantasy Tip: Conforto ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is batting .421 (8-for-19) with four doubles and two RBIs over the past week and is a solid value option in FantasyScore.

New York Mets 3B David Wright was 2-for-5 in his first home game at Citi Field Friday, Aug. 28, against the Boston Red Sox. Wright had not played at Citi since April, when back problems sidelined him.
Fantasy Tip: Wright ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been decent in his return to the lineup, so the time might be right to lift off the reins and put Wright in your FantasyScore roster.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is still a few weeks away from returning to the lineup, so owners should monitor his recovery. Michael Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) could see most of the playing time at first base and could be a starting option against certain opponents.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 13:39:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) appears to be over the nagging knee injury for the time being, but he still isn't receiving everyday playing time. Still, he is currently raking with a .350/.381/.600 slash line since returning from the disabled list and is worth targeting at FantasyScore Friday. Johnson's ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) role could dwindle if he doesn't heat up at the plate. He has just six RBI and a .222/.273/.403 slash line over 22 games since joining the Mets. He is nothing more than a cavernous mixed and NL-only option is seasonal formats.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 13:33:22 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has only received 45 plate appearances in August, but he has made the most of them with nine runs, 11 RBI and a 1.014 OPS. Like most hitters for the red-hot Mets, he is worth considering at FantasyScore Friday. Conforto ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) remains worth owning in deeper mixed leagues, but he is unlikely to see anything more than semi-regular playing time down the stretch, so owners will want to keep that in mind.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 21:23:48 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Granderson ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has hit safely in seven of his last eight games, and he has scored 12 runs during the same stretch. Throw in his power upside, and Granderson makes a solid play at FantasyScore at his current price.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 21:17:57 -0700
New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes went 1-for-6 with a home run, two RBI and a walk in a 9-5 win over the Philadelphia Phillies Thursday, Aug. 27, and he tied a career high with 26 home runs for the year.
Fantasy Tip: Cespedes ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has six homers and 15 RBI over his last seven games, and he is hitting .303 since joining the Mets. Feel free to pay up for him at FantasyScore during this hot stretch.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 15:30:26 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Matz ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) likely will rejoin the starting rotation when he is activated from the disabled list. Owners may want to see him pitch in a game before considering him for their lineups.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:34:56 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Conforto ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has a respectable .271/.366/.500 slash line with 20 runs, three home runs and 12 RBI over his first 24 games with the Mets. He draws a plus-matchup against Harang ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) Thursday, and the outfielder is worth a look at FantasyScore.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:30:39 -0700
New York Mets SS Wilmer Flores is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 27. 2B Kelly Johnson is starting at second base and batting fifth, and SS Ruben Tejada is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang Thursday.
Fantasy Tip: Flores ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has been swinging a hot bat, and he is worth a look in deep mixed leagues, especially if middle infield is an area of need. Johnson ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is a nice FantasyScore play Wednesday, as the Mets lineup is piling on the offense of late. Tejada ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is more of a dice roll, though, and he shouldn't be confused as a lineup priority.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:18:43 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hitting in the heart of a scorching hot lineup, Wright ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is a high-end play at FantasyScore Thursday, especially at his current salary. Wright is going to receive some games off, but he still warrants ownership in the majority of seasonal leagues. Similarly, Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) isn't going to be a daily fixture in the lineup, which is a hit to his value.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 12:23:01 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Altherr ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has flashed some pop with two home runs and a .667 slugging percentage through his first 21 plate appearances. He is a viable flier at FantasyScore Thursday. Asche ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has been trending in the right direction with a .276/.364/.483 slash line in August, but he is still nothing more than a low-end option in all fantasy formats.
