Fantasy Impact: Cuddyer, like most of the Mets' offense, has not been good this season. The veteran has an OPS under .700, and his knee issues certainly aren't helping his cause.

Cuddyer woke up from his slumber and batted 3-for-5. One of hits was a solo shot off pitcher John Lackey in the 8th inning.

Fantasy Impact: Cuddyer has been cold lately. Perhaps, this game will serve as a springboard for another hit streak. He'll need a long one to turn his season around. On Sunday, he has a solid platoon advantage against lefty Tim Cooney. He's worth a look in DFS for Sunday.

Cuddyer finished 1-for-4 with no runs or RBIs. He now has a three-game hit streak.

Fantasy Impact: Despite the mini-streak, his average is an abysmal .244 for the year. He has disappointed in his first year for the Mets. He'll need a hot bat for the rest of the year to make it up.

Cuddyer provided a spark for the Mets, going 2-for-4 with a homerun.

Fantasy Impact: Prior to this game, Cuddyer also went 2-for-4 in San Francisco. Perhaps, he's ready to go on a hot streak again. If he does, he'll have ample opportunities to drive in runs, while batting in the middle of the Mets' lineup.

Cuddyer returned to the starting lineup and hit fifth in the batting order. The Mets scored eight runs, but Cuddyer did not contribute to the offensive barrage. He finished 0-for-5 with two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact: Cuddyer's disappointing season continues. He is now hitless in his last 11 at-bats, and his average fell to a woeful .236.

Manager Terry Collins stated Cuddyer felt "a little better," and could come in as a pinch hitter. He did enter the Dodger game as a pinch hitter, and struck out in his lone at-bat. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: For the time being, Mayberry Jr. will continue to split time in the outfield with Darrell Ceciliani. Both players are not worth picking up, as Cuddyer's malaise does not sound serious.

Fantasy Impact: The injury doesn't sound serious. If Cuddyer is out for an extended period, look for Darrell Ceciliani and John Mayberry Jr. to split time in the outfield.

Cuddyer did not start in the late game for the Mets. However, he did come in as a pinch hitter. He scored a run and stole a base.

Fantasy Impact: Cuddyer's bat has cooled off in June. Perhaps, he could borrow Granderson's scorching bat to get it going again. So far Cuddyer has disappointed in his first season as a Met with a batting average of .246.

Cuddyer went 0-for-4 against the Reds. He also struck out once.

Fantasy Impact: Cuddyer has only one hit in 19 at-bats. He also drew one walk during that span. He's cooled down a lot since his mini-streak in late May. Stay away from him for now in DFS.

For the second game in a row, Cuddyer could not get a hit against the Braves. He finished the game 0-for-4 with a strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Both Duda and Cuddyer could not get a hit against the Braves, which contributed to the zero runs scored for the Mets. Cuddyer did not fare well in Atlanta this weekend, finishing 2-for-11 overall.

Cuddyer went 2-for-4 with an RBI. He also struck out once.

Fantasy Impact: Unfortunately, the hitters in front of him didn't fare too well with the sole exception of shortstop Tejada. Cuddyer continues to hit well, and should be a solid low-cost option in DFS.

Cuddyer went hitless against the Braves, finishing 0-for-4 with two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact: Despite the poor showing against the Braves, Cuddyer's hitting has been on a positive trend. Unfortunately, the Mets have given him limited RBI opportunities. If the hitters in front of him can get on base more frequently, then Cuddyer could have big games and be a force in all fantasy formats.

In the bottom of the ninth in a tie game Michael Cuddyer ripped a single for the game winning hit in last nights game. Cuddyer finished the night 2-for-5 with two rbi.

Fantasy Impact: The game winner was Cuddyer's first since 2006. While he hasn't been to useful for shallow mixed leagues he could be a solid bat for deeper or NL only leagues. He is now batting .270 with six home runs and 26 rbi.

Cuddyer went 0-for-3 in the Mets' 5-0 loss to the Giants. He struck out once.

Fantasy Impact: Cuddyer had a hit streak that began in May prior to this game. Hopefully, for his owners, this game is just a bump in the road. He's had a really slow start to the year, and needs to hit better for the Mets to stay competitive.

Cuddyer kept the bat hot, going 2-for-4. He also struck out twice

Fantasy Impact: He has had a hit streak going, since May 24. Since May 24, he has raised his average from .247 to .273. He hit .331 and .332 in his two previous seasons. Although those numbers came from playing in Colorado, Cuddyer still has a lot of room for improvement so keep plugging him in DFS, if the price is right.

Cuddyer (back) was back in the lineup, and came up big for the Mets. He went 1-for-4 with a homerun.

Fantasy Impact: Cuddyer has been on a torrid pace since busting out of his early season slump in May. As the cleanup hitter for the Mets, he'll have many opportunities to drive in runs. Keep plugging him in DFS formats, until he slows down or his price catches up with his production.

Cuddyer kept his hitting streak alive, going 3-for-4 against the Padres. He also had a double, a run and an RBI.

Fantasy Impact: The nine game hitting streak has raised his average to .271. He's finally showing signs of life after a putrid start to the season. He's a great low-to-mid salary DFS option, until his price catches up to his recent production.

Michael Cuddyer stays hot

Cuddyer had another multi-hit game against the Phillies. He finished 2-for-4 with a homerun and two RBIs.

Fantasy Impact: Cuddyer now has a four game hit streak, and a second home run in his last three games. He looks primed to bust out of his early season slump and start producing for the Mets.

Cuddyer went 1-for-2 with two walks and a homerun. He finished with two runs, one RBI and one strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Cuddyer has struggled in his new role with the Mets. Perhaps, he's ready to turn things around, and start producing at the heart of the Mets lineup. They'll need him to jumpstart their offense.

Cuddyer faced one of the best pitchers in the National League this season, and he came up empty as the cleanup hitter. He went 0-for-4 with one strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Cuddyer has disappointed the Mets with his paltry .247 hitter, while hitting at the heart of the order. Perhaps, when David Wright comes back from injury, he'll have Lucas Duda and Wright, batting ahead of him. He'll need to turn it around soon, if the Mets hope to contend for a playoff spot.

After going hitless in his last game, Cuddyer goes 3-for-3 against the Cardinals. He also drew one walk.

Fantasy Impact: Cuddyer has been slow to start the year, but he has recently turned it around. Since May 14, Cuddyer has improved his batting average from .233 to .253. Perhaps, he's ready to bust out of his early season slump.

Fantasy Impact: Cuddyer now has a six game hit streak. He has struggled this year with a batting average of .241. Perhaps, this current hit streak will help him bust out of his early season slump. When he does, he'll have a prime opportunity to rack up runs and RBI's.

Michael Cuddyer managed to pull together 4 RBI in the two wins against the Brewers this weekend. Michael Cuddyer is currently batting .242 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Michael Cuddyer along with many other Mets are on a hot streak right now. I do think that Michael Cuddyer is a great play in daily formats as well as season long.

Michael Cuddyer was 1-for-3 and added a walk to the stat sheet in Monday's loss to the Chicago Cubs. He is currently batting .250 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Michael Cuddyer has slowed down since his early season success. He continues to bat clean up, but until he gets it going again he should be left on your bench in season long leagues and not played in daily formats.

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.

 

Michael Cuddyer has been one of the best bats so far this spring training. So far he is meeting expectations and hopefully he will carry this momentum to the regular season. (Source: ESPN)

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.
