New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon allowed just one earned runs, seven hits and no walks with five strikeouts over eight innings in a win Monday, Aug. 3, against the Miami Marlins. Colon entered the game 0-6 with a 6.16 ERA over his past seven starts.
Fantasy Tip: Colon ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has struggled lately, but this is a good sign of things to come. FantasyScore players can trust him again, especially if the Mets stay hot and he continues to get amazing run support.

Fantasy Tip: The doubles were d'Arnaud's ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) first hits in three games since coming off the 15-day disabled list July 31. It took a few games to get his timing back, but it appears safe to trust him again in FantasyScore.

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto belted his first major league home run Monday, Aug. 3, against the Miami Marlins, finishing with three RBIs. He finished 2-for-4 with three runs scored and a walk with two strikeouts. He is the first major league play since Joe Marty (Chicago Cubs, 1937) with two games of at least three runs scored and three RBIs in his first seven career games.
Fantasy Tip: Conforto ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is an exciting player worth a look in FantasyScore since he comes with a mid-level price tag and a decent amount of power upside.
Mon, 03 Aug 2015 20:21:08 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cespedes ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) had just one hit in seven at-bats in his first two games with the Mets, but this breakout performance is sure to excite FantasyScore players going forward.

Fantasy Tip: Granderson ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is 23-for-70 (.329) with five doubles, four homers, 11 RBIs and 14 runs scored over the past 17 games to raise his average from .243 to .258 since the All-Star break. He is a fabulous FantasyScore option at a mid-level price.
Mon, 03 Aug 2015 15:45:17 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) had three multi-home run games in that stretch, and he sits at 21 for the season. While strikeouts are an issue for Duda, few players have an equally high upside at the moment.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and will return to the lineup soon. Flores ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is hitting .251 this season with 11 home runs and 42 RBI this season and could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore.

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy will start at third base against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler Monday, Aug. 3, and is batting second in the lineup. OF Kelly Johnson will start at second base and is batting sixth in the lineup. 3B Juan Uribe is not in the starting lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been playing at different positions but remains in the lineup. He has recorded at least one hit in seven of his last nine games with six RBI in that span. He could be a solid option for owners on FantasyScore. Johnson ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) has only four hits in six games since joining the Mets and is not a great option.

New York Mets OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis (neck, shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, Aug. 2, because of neck and should discomfort. The team also recalled OF Michael Conforto from Class AAA Las Vegas.
Fantasy Tip: Nieuwenhuis ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) will be sidelined for several weeks, so owners should avoid him while he is out. Conforto ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) should see some playing time while he is with the Mets and could be an option on FantasyScore against certain matchups.
Sun, 02 Aug 2015 06:05:47 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Conforto hit just .211 with zero home runs through 23 plate appearances with the Mets. He'll almost definitely be back in the majors once rosters expand, but owners will now know to temper their expectations.
Sun, 02 Aug 2015 06:01:55 -0700
New York Mets 3B David Wright (back) will travel with the team to Miami and continue his workouts. Wright will soon begin rehab games, and manager Terry Collins said there's no question Wright will play again this season.
Fantasy Tip: Wright has played in just eight games this season. Owners with the roster space could add Wright out of speculation, but they should hold their expectations in check upon his eventual return.
Sun, 02 Aug 2015 05:51:25 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Familia had been struggling of late, blowing his past three save opportunities. Familia continues to receive the confidence of his manager, and he should continue to hold onto the closer's role.

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda went 3-for-3 with two home runs, three RBI, two runs scored and a walk in a 3-2 win over the Washington Nationals Saturday, Aug. 1, and he has eight home runs in his last seven games.
Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has 10 RBI and eight runs scored during the same seven-game stretch, and he is a bargain at FantasyScore right now.
Sat, 01 Aug 2015 14:31:44 -0700
New York Mets OF Kelly Johnson is starting in right field and hitting sixth in the order Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Washington Nationals and RHP Joe Ross. OF Michael Conforto comes out of the starting lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is hitting a pedestrian .265 against righties this year, although he does have nine home runs. He can be considered for use in GPP tournaments on FantasyScore.
Sat, 01 Aug 2015 14:25:39 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cespedes ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) will have an excellent opportunity to make an instant impact as he is hitting .321 with 15 home runs against right-handed pitching this season. FantasyScore owners should be looking at him as the Mets best FantasyScore option.
