Mets | Lucas Duda still a few weeks away

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 06:48:13 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) visited the team and took swings Saturday, July 23. It was the first time he swung a bat since being placed on the disabled list Monday, May 23, and Duda said he hopes to begin a rehab assignment in a "couple weeks."

Fantasy Tip: Duda remains a potential stash candidate in deep mixed and NL-only leagues, as once healthy, he should roll right back into near full-time at-bats and start all games against right-handed pitchers. Over the past three seasons, he has returned a .477 slugging percentage with 64 home runs and 184 RBI over 327 games.

Mets | Jacob deGrom hit hard

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 20:36:35 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom allowed a season-high five runs on a season-high 10 hits while walking one and striking out five over 3 2/3 innings in a loss to the Miami Marlins Saturday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: After his best start of the year, deGrom had by far his worst. His overall numbers remain stout, and he should bounce back in his next start.

Mets | Big night for Jose Reyes

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 20:27:02 -0700

New York Mets SS Jose Reyes recorded his first three-hit game of the season, finishing 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI, two runs scored and a steal in a 5-3 win over the Miami Marlins Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Reyes isn't the player he used to be, but as long as he is seeing regular at-bats, he is worth owning in most formats.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes back in there

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 14:07:39 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes (quadriceps) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting third against Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes has been dogged by several nagging injuries this year but has been fortunate enough to avoid any DL stints. On the season he's hitting a nice .295/.367/.567 with 21 long balls and 52 RBI. That's great production in any fantasy format, making him a top-tier outfielder as a must-start. Return him to all lineups.

Mets | Zack Wheeler throws bullpen

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 14:04:31 -0700

New York Mets SP Zack Wheeler (elbow) threw a bullpen session Friday, July 22, and his next step in the process is to face batters before progressing to rehab games.

Fantasy Tip: Wheeler is coming back from Tommy John surgery and is looking at a mid-August return to New York's rotation if he can avoid any further setbacks. You're looking at seven or eight starts from him, and there's no guarantee he'll be in top form at that time, so temper your expectations for what he can offer in 2016. Stash him in deep mixed and NL-only leagues but you can wait in the rest of formats.

Mets | Wilmer Flores starting vs. Miami

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 12:42:02 -0700

New York Mets INF Wilmer Flores is starting at first base and batting fourth against Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley Friday, July 22. Mets 1B James Loney is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Flores is scorching hot and pushing for more playing time with an active 14-for-34 run at the plate that's yielded nine runs, seven home runs and 13 RBI. He should be owned in all deep mixed and NL-only leagues. Loney is nothing more than a fringe starter in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, and he could begin to lose starts to Flores.

Mets | No Michael Conforto vs. Miami

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 12:36:28 -0700

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.

Mets | Mets monitoring certain relievers

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 11:51:13 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers RP Jeremy Jeffress, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Joe Smith and Atlanta Braves RP Chris Withrow are among the bullpen options being monitored by the New York Mets ahead of the trade deadline. The club views adding another reliever as being "more easily attainable" as opposed to a starting pitcher.

Fantasy Tip: It would be a boost for each Withrow and Smith if one were to land on the Mets, at least in leagues that score holds, as both would get more opportunities at such compared to their current employers. Jeffress, however, would receive a huge downgrade, as he would no longer be closing like he does for Milwaukee, and effectively so in that role.

Mets | Kelly Johnson collects four hits

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 18:28:22 -0700

New York Mets INF Kelly Johnson went 4-for-4 in a loss to the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, July 20.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is batting .444 (8-for-18) this month but isn't worth rostering outside of NL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues due to a lack of consistent playing time. However, he makes a decent DFS option on days when his name is penciled into the starting lineup.

Mets | Bartolo Colon struggles Wednesday

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 18:15:05 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon (8-5) allowed six runs on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, July 20, with two walks and one strikeout.

Fantasy Tip: Colon had arguably his worst start of the season Wednesday and has allowed six earned runs in two of his last three outings. He will attempt to right the ship in his next start versus the St. Louis Cardinals Tuesday, July 26.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes not 100% healthy

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 09:41:36 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes' (quadriceps) quadriceps is still not 100% healthy, and he is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20, because the organization wants to provide two days of rest for Cespedes with no game scheduled Thursday, July 21.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes has been nursing various injuries off and on all season, so fantasy owners should welcome the odd game off to keep him from the disabled list. After all, he's been nothing short of a high-end contributor when in the lineup and sits with 47 runs, 21 home runs, 52 RBI and a .295/.367/.567 slash line for the campaign.

Mets | Rene Rivera has three-hit game

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 20:11:16 -0700

New York Mets C Rene Rivera went 3-for-4 with an RBI Tuesday, July 19, against the Chicago Cubs. It wasn't all great, as he was charged with his first error of the season on an errant throw.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the big game Rivera remains nothing more than a No. 2 receiver in deeper NL-only fantasy leagues and as a salary saver in DFS.

Mets | Thor whiffs eight in no-decision

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 20:10:42 -0700

New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard allowed one unearned run, seven hits and two walks with eight strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision Tuesday, July 19, against the Chicago Cubs. He appeared to benefit from rest in his first start after the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: Syndergaard has had a couple of bumpy starts over his past four outings, but more often than not he is an innings eater with a high rate of strikeouts. Despite some rough patches lately, he remains a must-start across all fantasy formats and DFS play.

Mets | Logan Verrett won't be skipped

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 15:43:04 -0700

New York Mets SP Logan Verrett won't be skipped with the team having an off day Thursday, July 21, and he'll face the Miami Marlins Friday, July 22, followed by SP Jacob deGrom Saturday, July 23, and SP Steven Matz Sunday, July 24. Manager Terry Collins said it's not time for the team's established starters to forgo extra rest.

Fantasy Tip: Verrett is normally a swing man/long reliever, so he has little fantasy upside outside of cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues in the short term. He allowed two earned runs in his last outing in six innings but is a very risky daily pick as your second starter Friday against the Fish.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud takes a seat

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 15:00:31 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 19. C Rene Rivera is doing the catching and batting eighth against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta.

Fantasy Tip: It looks to be a normal night off for d'Arnaud in a tough matchup. Rivera is batting under .200 with three homers and 13 RBI and is a desperation daily selection against Arrieta tonight.
