New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (9-for-52), SS Ruben Tejada (1-for-27) and C Travis d'Arnaud (3-for-24) have struggled in the last 13 meetings with the San Francisco Giants. The Mets face the Giants in a series starting Monday, July 6.
Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has just nine hits in his last 65 at-bats (.138) since June 17 with one home run and five RBI. Tejada ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has seven hits in his last 46 at-bats (.152) even after recording three hits last night. Against Giants starter Chris Heston, who no hit the Mets the last time he faced them, neither Duda nor Tejada are intriguing FantasyScore plays Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Matz ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has won his first two major league starts, allowing just two runs and striking out 14 in 13 2/3 innings. Tale advantage of his fast start at FantasyScore before the league has time to study and adjust.

Fantasy Tip: Flores ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) went 10-for-13 with five RBI in the three-game series, and he could make a nice source of cap relief at FantasyScore while he is swinging a hot bat.

Fantasy Tip: Cuddyer ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is making his first start since Tuesday, June 30, although he made appearances as a pinch hitter in each of the last two games. FantasyScore owners should avoid using him today so that he can prove that he is completely healthy.
Sun, 05 Jul 2015 12:29:24 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Monell ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has just five hits in 30 at-bats this season and is not a viable FantasyScore option.

Fantasy Tip: Over his past four stars, Syndergaard ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) has a 2.25 ERA with 25 strikeouts over 24 innings while limiting hitters to a .174/.226/.279 slash line. His only hiccup has been his start against the San Diego Padres Tuesday, June 2. He should be owned in all seasonal leagues, and Syndergaard's reasonable FantasyScore salary makes him a solid target as your No. 2 starting pitcher.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) has stumbled as of late following a strong start. His strikeouts are pretty good, but a lack of wins has been the weakness. He's worth starting in FantasyScore contests, but have backups ready in case.

New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard remained winless on the road Friday, July 3, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He allowed one run on two hits over six innings with six strikeouts and two walks but picked up no decision as the Mets won 2-1.
Fantasy Tip: Syndergaard ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) still has 59 strikeouts through his first 10 starts. Only three pitchers (Dwight Gooden, Nolan Ryan and Matt Harvey) have gotten off to better starts. That's not bad. You still may want to skip Syndergaard in FantasyScore until he works out the road kinks.

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (elbow) has not yet been cleared to resume baseball activities, according to general manager Sandy Alderson. He continues to wear a protective brace for much of the day and is undergoing physical therapy to address the mobility of the elbow in both directions.
Fantasy Tip: Kevin Plawecki ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) will continue to be the primary starter behind the plate while d'Arnaud is sidelined, with Johnny Monell ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) backing him up and playing once or twice a week. Neither player is a great FantasyScore option.

New York Mets OF Michael Cuddyer (knee) feels "a little bit better" and may be available to pinch hit Friday, July 3, according to manager Terry Collins. Collins added Cuddyer will take batting practice to see how he feels.
Fantasy Tip: John Mayberry Jr. ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) draws into the lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw in Cuddyer's ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) absence. Mayberry isn't worth the risk facing Kershaw at FantasyScore Friday, though. Continue to check back for updates on Cuddyer's progress.

New York Mets OF Michael Cuddyer (knee) could still land on the disabled list if he sits out beyond three days, according to manager Terry Collins. Cuddyer missed his second straight game Thursday, July 2, after receiving an injection and undergoing an MRI exam.
Fantasy Tip: Cuddyer ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) hit .211 (19-for-90) with a home run and six RBI in June to drop his average to .243 on the season. You can drop him in shallow leagues now if you were hanging on. John Mayberry Jr., Darrell Ceciliani and Eric Campbell can all fill in in left field if Cuddyer lands on the DL, but none of those options have much fantasy appeal in traditional or daily games.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 09:33:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Tejada ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has two hits in his last 31 at-bats (.065) since June 23. Avoid him on FantasyScore for the foreseeable future until he gets going again at the plate.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 09:29:49 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Monell ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is seldom used and doesn't deserve your attention on FantasyScore.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 09:22:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ceciliani ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is an ugly option for FantasyScore lineups, even while hitting second in the batting order. The matchup against Arrieta is a tough one, and Ceciliani is sporting a .237 average (14-for-59) with one home run and just three RBI.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 07:25:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Campbell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has struggled and isn't worth using on FantasyScore.
