Granderson finished the game 1-for-3 with one hit, one run scored, one walk and one strkeout.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson continues to hit cleanup for the New York Mets and has taken advantage. He now has a five-game hit streak and he is sandwiched in between red-hot Jay Bruce and Cespedes. He's in a good spot to help his fantasy owners to finish the season strong.

Granderson finished 1-for-4 with one run and one RBI in the New York Mets loss to the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Impact: With last night's game, Granderson now has a three-game hit streak. He has hit a groove, since moving in the cleanup spot for the Mets. He will continue to have opportunities to drive in runs so he's an intriguing play in DFS tournament formats.

Granderson pulled through for the New York Mets with a game winning homerun in the 11th inning. He finished 2-for-6 overall with two runs scored, two RBIs and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact: Prior to this game, Granderson didn't do much. Perhaps, this will get his bat going again. He's still batting cleanup so he will get a chance to drive in runs, if he can make contact with his bat.

Granderson hit cleanup again, but did nothing with the opportunity. He finished 0-for-3 with one walk.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson continues to hit cleanup for the New York Mets, which means he will continue to have opportunities to put up power numbers. He has a healthy .440 slugging rate for the year, but a poor .220 batting average overall.

Granderson finished 0-for-4 with one walk. Prior to this game, Granderson had a four-game homerun streak.

Fantasy Impact: Despite going hitless, Granderson sports a .375 batting average in the last seven days, including the four homeruns from his streak. He's hitting in the cleanup spot for the Mets, and is still worth a consideration in all fantasy formats.

Granderson is officially on fire for the New York Mets. He finished 2-for-2 with a homerun, two runs scored, three RBIs and two walks.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson's move to the heart of the order has helped him. He now has a four-game homerun streak with another platoon matchup against a young pitcher in John Grant. It's hard to short him on DFS, so keep using him until he cools off.

Category: , Game Recaps


Granderson blasted a solo shot in the 2nd inning off starter Brandon Finnegan. He finished 1-for-2 with the homerun as his lone hit. He also drew one walk.

Fantasy Impact: That makes it two game homerun streak for the veteran outfielder. He will look to continue the streak against Cincinnati Reds starter Anthony DeSciafani on Wednesday.

Granderson finished 1-for-4 with two RBIs, while batting in the cleanup spot. He also struck out once.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson has been flashing some signs of life lately. Perhaps, his big series against the Miami Marlins has sparked his bat. If he starts Sunday, he has a decent platoon matchup against rookie starter Reynaldo Lopez.

Granderson got the start in the outfield, but did very little. He finished 0-for-4 with one strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson had a productive series against the Miami Marlins, where he hit two homeruns in one of those games. It looked like he was ready to turn things around, but perhaps, he's back to his slumping ways. He has a .221 batting average for the year.

Coming off the bench last night for the Mets, the struggling Curtis Granderson had two at bats and homered both times, driving in three runs. Granderson, who has been abysmal with RISP this season, now has 22 homers. Incredibly, despite hitting 22 homers, Granderson only has 38 RBI on the season exemplifying his struggles hitting when the Mets have RISP.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson is a decent fantasy OF 5 in only the deepest of leagues and/or NL-only leagues. Batting just .223 on the season, Granderson is only a valuable start if you can somehow predict the one game in ten when he is going to successfully homer or drive in runs. Unfortunately, that's near to impossible. If rostered, he is best left on the bench.

Curtis Granderson is not in the Mets' starting lineup on Tuesday. Alejandro de Aza will play center field, with Jay Bruce returning to the lineup in right field after a day off.

Fantasy Impact: Just part of the Mets' game of musical chairs in the outfield. With de Aza the only "true" center fielder on the roster and playing well, Granderson is going to have to fight for playing time going forward.


With Jay Bruce sitting on the bench, Granderson got the nod in the outfield. Batting seventh in the lineup, the veteran outfielder finished 0-for-4 with one walk, one run scored and one strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: With Jay Bruce struggling, Granderson is lucky to get a few starts. However, he continues to struggle as his batting average for the season is now .219. If Bruce starts hitting again, Granderson could be sitting on the bench for the rest of the way.

After sitting out the past two games, Granderson got the call to play in the outfield. Granderson finished 1-for-4 with his homerun as the lone hit for the night.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson continues to sport a low batting average. In the last seven days, he has hit for a .136 average with two homeruns and three RBI. He could lose a few starts, if the Mets face any more left handed hitters in the future.

Category: , Game Recaps


Granderson started in right field and led off for the New York Mets. He went hitless and struck out twice.

Fantasy Impact: Although he had a platoon advantage against Verlander, he couldn't do much damage against the Detroit Tigers ace. He had a decent showing against the New York Yankees, but he's back to his season long slump. In his last seven days, he has only three hits in 18 at-bats.

Category: , Game Recaps


Curtis Granderson is not in the Mets starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Yankees. Jay Bruce will start in right field while Alejandro De Aza leads off and plays center.

Fantasy Impact: It's a bit of a game of musical chairs right now with the Mets' outfield, as they lack a true center fielder on the roster other than de Aza. Expect Granderson to man center field the majority of the time and, at the very least, expect him back in the lineup on Wednesday and Thursday when the Mets have the designated hitter available.


Granderson saw time at the number three spot in the Mets lineup. He finished 1-for-4 with a run scored. He also struck out once.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson continues to strikeout at an alarming rate. He now has 80 strikeouts in 318 at-bats. However, he continues to sport a healthy slugging percentage. After doubling in yesterday's game, it is now at .456, which could mean more RBIs for the veteran if he continues to hit at the heart of the order.

Category: , Game Recaps


With all the Mets injuries, Granderson got a look as the number three hitter in the Mets lineup. He finished 1-for-4 with one run scored and one strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: With Jose Reyes back as the leadoff hitter, Granderson has moved down in the lineup. If Cespedes continues to lose playing time due to injuries, Granderson could see a few more starts in the middle of the lineup. Although he doesn't have the best batting average, he does tend to hit with power and could see a few more RBI opportunities as the number three hitter.

Category: , Game Recaps


Despite facing a lefty, the Mets still started Granderson in right field. He was held hitless in three at-bats, but he did draw one walk.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson has been on fire the last seven days. He has a .320 batting average with one homerun, three RBIs and three runs scored during that span. He will look to improve on his paltry season-long .239 average in the second half.

Category: , Game Recaps


With a tough matchup against Nationals ace Max Scherzer, Granderson held his own. He finished 2-for-4 with one double and one strikeout. Unfortunately, the New York Mets could not capitilize on Granderson's productive day.

Fantasy Impact: For the past seven days, Granderson's bat has picked up. He has a .385 batting average with two homeruns, five RBIs and five runs scored. The move to the number two hole has helped Granderson's bat. Perhaps, this could be the start of a hot streak for the veteran outfielder.

Category: , Game Recaps


With Jose Reyes batting leading off, Granderson moved to the second spot on the lineup. He had a good game, finishing 3-for-4 overall. He had two runs scored, two doubles and two walks.

Fantasy Impact: With Granderson's power potential, he's better off batting lower in the lineup. If Reyes can consistently get on base, Granderson should have a lot of opportunities to drive in runs. He still sports a paltry .239 batting average, but perhaps this game will get his bat going.

Curtis Granderson returned to the Mets' lineup on Sunday, going 2-for-4 with a home run.

Fantasy Impact: It was good to see Granderson back, as he should be full-go following his brief layoff due to injury. He's been effective this season, but the fact that he no longer provides SB upside limits his value for fantasy purposes.

Category: , Injury Updates, Game Recaps


The Mets have decided to shut down Curtis Granderson for a few days to allow his calf injury to fully heal. Granderson had previously been limited to pinch-hitting appearances of late, but the Mets will not even allow this in the next few days. (Source: Mike Puma on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This would indicate that the calf wasn't improving with the starts off, so the team will try more complete rest before weighing other options, including the disabled list. Owners will need to monitor the situation, but it seems like Granderson will at least be sidelined through the weekend.

Category: , Injury Updates


Curtis Granderson was again held out of the Mets' starting lineup, but he was able to appear late as a pinch-hitter. He's been dealing with a calf injury.

Fantasy Impact: Considering the Mets are using him as a pinch-hitter, it would appear that Granderson will avoid a stint on the disabled list and could be back in the starting lineup soon. Despite his low batting average, he's provided decent value for fantasy purposes considering his spot in the lineup and his ability to hit for power and steal the occasional base.

Category: , Injury Updates


Granderson started in right field for the New York Mets, and he went 2-for-5 overall. He also scored one run, drove in a run and struck out twice.

Fantasy Impact: This game should help his .222 batting average. He continues to strike out at an alarming rate, but he does maintain a decent .434 slugging rate with 13 homeruns for the year. Perhaps, if Jose Reyes gets promoted to the big club, Granderson could slot lower in the lineup and have more chances to drive in more runs with his power.

Category: , Game Recaps


Granderson went hitless in the Mets' 4-3 win over the Kansas City Royals. He did have two walks and scored a run for New York.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson has had a tough year with a .222 average, but he has a decent .448 slugging percentage with 13 homeruns overall. In June alone, he has hit four homeruns, four doubles and a triple. Expect the power numbers to continue but temper your expectations on batting average.

Curtis Granderson heating up

Mon, Jun 13th 4:22pm EDT
By Dan Harris

Curtis Granderson has been hot of late, batting .320 with three home runs, five runs, four RBI, and one steal over the last week. Granderson's overall numbers are still suffering, but he's on pace for 31 home runs.

Fantasy Impact: Although it has been a down year for Granderson as he has only a .770 OPS, it's worth remembering that he had almost an identical OPS at this point last year before going on an almost four-month tear. Granderson is capable of huge hot streaks, and it looks like he may be ready to go on another one.

Curtis Granderson went 1-for-4 with three strikeouts on Sunday against the Marlins. It was Granderson's ninth straight game with at least one strikeout, and his batting average is a mere .206 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson has been pretty unproductive this season, but is at least on pace for 27 homers. With the Mets' injuries, Granderson will be locked into the top three of the batting order for the foreseeable future, regardless of how long he struggles. Given his streakiness, you should keep him in your lineup to make sure you catch his next hot streak.

Granderson extended his hitting streak to four games. He finished 2-for-4 in the Mets' loss to the White Sox. He had one run scored, one RBI and one strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson continues to strikeout at an alarming rate, but at least he's now getting on base. He has raised his average to .214 and maintains a healthy .433 slugging percentage. He has a nice platoon advantage on Wednesday, when the White Sox employ righty Miguel Gonzalez on the mound.

Category: , Game Recaps


Granderson had a tough matchup against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw. He scraped together two hits in four at-bats. He had a double, a triple, an RBI and a strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson now has a three game hit streak. He has been awful for the year, except for his power numbers (as evidenced by his double and triple on Sunday). Perhaps, the Dodgers series will spark his bat as the calendar turns to June.

Category: , Game Recaps


Before the homerun, Granderson was having a tough game as he struck out three times. Then he came through with a homerun in the bottom of the ninth.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson has had a tough year. He only has a .200 batting average, but he has a slugging percentage of .417 with nine homeruns. He's tough to own at the moment, but he's worth holding onto due to his healthy slugging percentage. When he turns it on, he should be a fantasy beast.

Category: , Game Recaps


Granderson continues to show signs of life, as he had a productive game against lefty starter Gio Gonzalez. He finished 2-for4 with a run scored and a strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson has been awful lately with a .207 average for the year. However, he does have a healthy .421 slugging percentage. If and when he does turn it around, he could put up some gaudy power numbers. The Mets will need him to step up with lefty slugger Lucas Duda on the sidelines for the next six weeks. Granderson has a platoon advantage on Tuesday, but it's against Nationals ace Stephen Strasburg.

Category: , Game Recaps


Granderson was held hitless for the second straight game. He finished 0-for-4 with two striketouts.

Fantasy Impact: In his last seven games, Granderson only has only three hits (two of which is a homerun and a double). However, DFS players might want to bench him, until he shows some sign of life. He's still a hold in fantasy leagues due to his batting position on a potent lineup.

Category: , Game Recaps


Curtis Granderson went 2-for-2 with his seventh home run of the season on Tuesday. Granderson also walked twice.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson's had a bit of a rough season so far in 2016, though he's on pace for 30 home runs. The most important part of Granderson's night was the two walks, as he had walked only 14 times in his first 36 games. The Mets don't have great options other than Granderson for the leadoff spot, so as long as he can get his OBP up, he should continue to bat atop the lineup and contribute in homers and runs scored.

Category: , Game Recaps


Curtis Granderson went 0-for-5 on Sunday against the Dodgers, dropping his batting average down to an even .200. His OPS is down to .694, well down from his career number of .813.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson is a very streaky player, but his cold streaks have been far longer than his hot streaks so far this season. Granderson only has a .287 OBP, which is dreadful for a leadoff hitter. Unfortunately, if Granderson can't turn it around soon, Terry Collins could be forced to move Granderson down the order, which would limit his runs potential.


Curtis Granderson went 0-for-5 on Wednesday night against the Dodgers, dropping his batting average to .205 for the season.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson is both a slow starter and incredibly streaky, so there's no real cause for concern yet about the low batting average. He's still on pace for 29 home runs and 98 runs, so he's not exactly killing your fantasy team. Expect a hot streak to start again soon, though maybe not tonight against Clayton Kershaw.

Curtis Granderson went 0-for-4 with a run scored on Wednesday against the Braves. Granderson has now scored 18 runs on the season, and is on pace for 112.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson is off to his typical slow start, but he will always score a good amount of runs batting atop the Mets lineup. Expect Granderson's entire production to increase as the weather gets warmer.

Category: , Game Recaps


Curtis Granderson went 1-for-5 on Monday against the Reds. Granderson has at least one hit in 11 of his last 12 games.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson has really gotten going at the plate lately. He's still batting just .227, but with four homers, 13 runs, and eight RBI, he looks like he's in store for a similar season to the one he had in 2015.

Category: , Game Recaps


Curtis Granderson went 2-for-4 on Wednesday night against the Phillies with a double and a walk. He has six hits in his last 21 ABs.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson is batting only .175, but that's a huge jump over where he sat last week. Granderson is a slow starter and is still batting at the top of what should be a potent Mets lineup. He should be a solid fourth outfielder this season.

Category: , Game Recaps


Curtis Granderson went 2-for-5 on Saturday against the Indians, including his first homer of the season leading off the game. Granderson is batting just .146 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson started off cold last year too before turning in one of his best all-around seasons. It was good to see him finally hit his first homer, and owners can expect about 20-25 more for the rest of the season. Given his streakiness, owners should keep him active at all times, since you never know when he will go on a major run.

Category: , Game Recaps


Curtis Granderson went 0-for-4 on Sunday against the Phillies. He is now 1-for-20 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson has never been much help in the batting average department, but .050 is a little ridiculous, even for him. He's a streaky hitter, and the entire Mets lineup is struggling, so there is no need to panic yet. Owners should keep him active for the foreseeable future.


Reports are coming in that Granderson is dealing with an eye issue. (Source: Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: There is not much to be concerned about here. Keep him exactly where you expected him to be.

Curtis Granderson told reporters that his thumb feels fine after undergoing surgery following the end of the season. Granderson began hitting in January as he normally does, and he's on pace to be full-go for Opening Day. (Source: Marc Carig on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Granderson suffered the injury in the NLCS, and since he was able to undergo the operation just after the end of the season he's not projected to miss a beat in the regular season. He could be brought along a little slower than usual this spring, but that could have happened otherwise considering his veteran status.

Granderson finished 1-for-5 in the 5-4 Mets loss to the Kansas City Royals. He also walked twice.

Fantasy Impact: Granderson has had a solid post-season so far. He has a .289 average with a homerun and four stolen bases. He will look to build on those stats against Johnny Cueto in Game 2.

On Sunday, Granderson boarded the team bus with his left hand heavily wrapped. According to team sources, "it is merely tape for Granderson's banged-up thumb, but that he will be fine and lead off in Game 1 of the World Series." (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: The Mets will need Granderson's bat against the Kansas City Royals. Their top two aces are right-handed, and Granderson will have a platoon advantage against them. He could have a big series, as Kansas City is a renowned hitter's park.

Granderson went 2-for-3 in Game 2 between the Mets and the Dodgers. He also drew one walk.

Fantasy Impact: His stat line mirrored his stats in Game 1, when he also went 2-for-3 with one walk. He will face lefty Brett Anderson in Game 3, but the Mets are expected to keep Granderson in the lineup for that game. For the season, Granderson sports a .183 batting average against left handed pitchers.

Fantasy Impact: This game should help Granderson's numbers for September. He is having an awful September with a .231 batting average and no homeruns in 52 at-bats. His price should be coming down in DFS, making him an intriguing platoon play going forward.

Citi Field tweaking dimensions

With the new dimensions, Right-Center at Citi Field would be shorter than the ballpark where Granderson showed off his HR potential. Consider this an automatic boost to Granderson's fantasy value.
