What?! Daniel Murphy is only the 10th most valuable Met? That same Daniel Murphy who has hit a home run in six straight games leading up to the World Series? Yep, that same one. In the regular season, Murphy hit .281 with 38 doubles, 14 home runs and 73 RBI, striking out just 38 times in 130 games. For what it's worth, his 0.673 WAR in this postseason would be 12.3 WAR over the course of an entire season.
Travis d'Arnaud, 1.7 WAR
Travis d'Arnaud battled some injuries in 2015 and was limited to just 67 games. He made the most of those 67 games, though. d'Arnaud slashed .268/.340/.485 with 12 home runs and 41 RBI, making him one of the game's best offensive catchers.

Noah Syndergaard, 2.1 WAR
After he dominated in Triple-A for five starts (1.82 ERA and 34 strikouts in 29 2/3 innings), the Mets concluded that 23-year-old Noah Syndergaard was ready for the big leagues. They were correct. In 24 starts, Thor went 9-7 with a 3.24 ERA and 166 strikeouts in 150 regular-season innings, averaging 97 MPH on his sinker.

Michael Conforto, 2.1 WAR
"Magic" Michael Conforto (if nobody calls him that, they should) is just a 22-year-old rookie, but is making a big impact on the 2015 Mets. Conforto didn't make his MLB debut until July 24, played in just 56 regular-season games, but managed to hit nine homers and drove in 26 runs. Perhaps most importantly, he provided a strong platoon option for the Mets down the stretch.

Yoenis Cespedes, 2.3 WAR
Even though he reportedly was the Mets' fourth outfield choice to acquire before the nonwaiver trade deadline, they couldn't have asked for more production out of their late-season acquisition. Cespedes provided an immediate boost to the offense: The Mets went from scoring 3.5 runs per game before July 31 to 5.4 runs per game afterward.

Jeurys Familia, 2.7 WAR
In his first season as a full-time closer (and just second full season in the bigs), Jeurys Familia took the ninth inning and never looked back. Familia was flat-out dominant this season, earning 43 saves and striking out 9.9 batters per nine innings. His 1.85 ERA was lowest among relievers with at least 34 saves.

Lucas Duda, 3.0 WAR
Duda, the team's leader in home runs with 27, was one of the team's only power threats before the team acquired Yoenis Cespedes. Duda slashed .244/.352/.486. His 67 runs, 33 doubles, 27 home runs and 73 RBI all rank in the top-two on the team.
Matt Harvey, 4.3 WAR
Harvey had a dominant 2015, posting a 13-8 record and 2.71 ERA in 29 regular-season starts, but his great year turned controversial toward the end of the season. Harvey and his agent, Scott Boras, thought he should be shut down to stay within his doctors-recommended innings limit. The two sides have since put aside their innings debate as Harvey has continued to be dominant in the postseason. He got the ball for the Mets in Game 1 of the World Series.
Jacob deGrom, 4.7 WAR
Though Matt Harvey was supposed to be the team's ace this season, Jacob deGrom was the starter who earned the most WAR. deGrom was dominant throughout the entire season, never posting an ERA over 3.86 in any month, but was extraordinary in five June starts, allowing just 20 hits over 37 1/3 innings.

Curtis Granderon, 5.1 WAR
Curtis Granderson was the most impactful Mets player this season, accounting for 5.1 wins above replacement and barely earning the nod over deGrom. While he wasn't a classic three-true outcome hitter, he was pretty darn close, hitting 26 home runs, walking 91 times and recording 151 strikeouts in 682 plate appearances. He led the Mets in games played (157), at-bats (580), hits (150), RBI (T-1, 73), on-base percentage (.364), walks and strikeouts.
