The New York Mets feel to the Miami Marlins on Wednesday, 7-3. Michael Cuddyer accounted for two of the Mets' runs with a home run in the first inning. He finished 2-for-4 on the night and is now batting .247 for the season.

Fantasy Impact: Cuddyer, batting out of the cleanup spot on Thursday, has two home runs, 11 RBI and seven extra-base hits this season. He's struck out 20 times with only six walks. Don't expect Cuddyer to put up the numbers like he did in past seasons, but he should still be a solid contributor in most fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Impact: Cuddyer has an on-base percentage of .378 and slugging percentage of .488 hitting in the cleanup spot behind Lucas Duda and in front of Daniel Murphy. While Cuddyer should be productive, don't expect as many home runs this season as in the past.

Cuddyer got the Mets off to a hot start with a nice RBI in their 6-5 win over the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact: With David Wright's injury he may see tougher pitches, but I would not shy away from Cuddyer until we see a drop in production. Cuddyer has been off to a hot start and should be picked up in all league formats. He also deserves a strong look in daily leagues for at his current price.

Michael Cuddyer jump-started the New York Mets in their 4-3 win over the Atlanta Braves on Sunday. Cuddyer hit his first home run of the season to give the Mets a 2-0 lead. Cuddyer is hitting .208 with three RBI after the first week of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Cuddyer, a career .278 hitter with 188 home runs, hit .332 in 49 games last season with the Rockies. The 36-year old veteran will likely still be a solid contributor, but don't expect him to hit over .300 or top the 20 home run mark playing in New York.

Fantasy Impact: Cuddyer got the run scoring started in the third inning by driving a line drive RBI single over Dan Uggla's outstretched glove. Cuddyer has two favorable match ups this weekend against two lefty starters. Cuddyer is a career .291 hitter against left handed pitching.

Fantasy Impact: Cuddyer is playing well along in his first season with the Mets and should be looked at as a sleeper in season long fantasy leagues. Even taking a flyer on him in a daily league for a cheap price is an interesting route to take with his hot start.

Cuddyer connected for his 5th homer of the spring this afternoon against the Marlins. Cuddyer took Mat Latos deep in the 2nd inning of the Mets 12-3 win.

Fantasy Impact: After an injury plagued 2014 in which Cuddyer managed 10 HRs in 190 at bats, Cuddyer is having a great spring. He currently has a FantasyPros ECR of 217 (ADP of 214). Assuming he can stay healthy for most of the season, it wouldn't be out of the question for him to hit 15-20 HRs even with CitiField as his home stadium where fences have been moved in. He can be a potential late round sleeper who can provide some punch off of mixed league benches in 2015.
