Jeff McNeil remains red hot at the plate

Jeff McNeil went 3-for-5 with an RBI as the Mets toppled the Phillies 7-6 Monday.

Fantasy Impact

McNeil now has four consecutive games with at least two hits and a six-game hit streak where he has driven in five runs. The expect return of Todd Frazier will limit McNeil's playing time in the infield, but he also carries OF eligibility in most leagues, and is worthy of consideration during this torrid streak.

Jeff McNeil (knee) returns to lineup Sunday

After missing Saturday's game with a sore knee, Jeff McNeil is back in the Mets' lineup on Sunday, batting leadoff and playing left field.

Fantasy Impact

McNeil draws a tough assignment in Max Scherzer, but the important part is that he is healthy. Hopefully, McNeil is fully over his knee troubles and can be the high-average, mostly everyday player that his owners expected.

Jeff McNeil out of Mets' lineup on Saturday

Jeff McNeil is taking a seat on Saturday with lefty Patrick Corbin on the mound for the Nationals. The prolific J.D. Davis, batting a robust .150 on the young season, will jump start the Mets' offense that was just shut out on Thursday, by batting cleanup and playing 3B.

Fantasy Impact

McNeil owners have to be frustrated so far with the way the Mets have handled him. While his absence last Wednesday was due to a slight knee issue, there's no word on whether his absence from Saturday's lineup is anything more than due to a lefty-lefty matchup situation. The Mets did this last year with Brandon Nimmo before ultimately realizing his value and starting him most days. So, there is hope McNeil's playing time will increase and become more consistent as the season continues.

Jeff McNeil out of Mets' lineup on Wednesday

Jeff McNeil is absent from the Mets' lineup on Wednesday because his knee is “banged up." The Mets' infielder is, however, available to pinch hit today.

Fantasy Impact

It doesn't appear that McNeil's knee issue is anything serious since he is available for pinch hitting duties in today's series finale against the Marlins. Off to a quick start on the season with a .400 batting average and .471 OBP, McNeil should likely be back in the lineup for the Mets' home opener against the Nationals on Thursday afternoon.

Jeff McNeil batting second on Tuesday night

Jeff McNeil will bat second on Tuesday night while Pete Alonso gets the night off.

Fantasy Impact

McNeil gets bumped up a few spots in the lineup with Alonso taking a seat. He's been an absolute beast to start the season, slashing .455/.538/.818. He's definitely worth an add in an improved Mets lineup.
