New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom was sensational in his start Thursday, July 28, versus the Colorado Rockies. Although he ended up with a hard-luck no-decision, the right-hander tossed seven shutout innings of five-hit ball, issuing only one walk and striking out six.
Fantasy Tip: deGrom would have claimed his seventh win here had closer Jeurys Familia not blown his second consecutive save. Nonetheless, it was a great effort from the former NL Rookie of the Year winner, especially since he was able to bounce back from his worst start of the season. He's a must-start option in all leagues whenever he toes the rubber.

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom allowed five runs on 10 hits and a walk while striking out a single batter during the Mets' 7-2 loss to the Miami Marlins Saturday, July 23.
Fantasy Tip: DeGrom has now allowed more than three runs in an outing just twice this season, and he sits with a 2.64 ERA, a 1.06 WHIP and 9.3 K/9 for his career. He warrants mention among the top pitching options in fantasy and should be started with confidence in all formats.

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom allowed a season-high five runs on a season-high 10 hits while walking one and striking out five over 3 2/3 innings in a loss to the Miami Marlins Saturday, July 23.
Fantasy Tip: After his best start of the year, deGrom had by far his worst. His overall numbers remain stout, and he should bounce back in his next start.

New York Mets SP Logan Verrett won't be skipped with the team having an off day Thursday, July 21, and he'll face the Miami Marlins Friday, July 22, followed by SP Jacob deGrom Saturday, July 23, and SP Steven Matz Sunday, July 24. Manager Terry Collins said it's not time for the team's established starters to forgo extra rest.
Fantasy Tip: Verrett is normally a swing man/long reliever, so he has little fantasy upside outside of cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues in the short term. He allowed two earned runs in his last outing in six innings but is a very risky daily pick as your second starter Friday against the Fish.

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom had a one-hitter Sunday, July 17, as the Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies, 5-0. Phillies SP Zach Eflin had the lone hit for Philadelphia. DeGrom struck out seven, walked one and went the distance for the first time in 68 career starts. He hadn't pitched since July 6 because of the All-Star break.
Fantasy Tip: Whether it was the extra rest that deGrom got, the fact it was the Phillies, or something else, deGrom had a spectacular outing. He should be played in all formats, as so far deGrom has avoided the hard luck of other Met hurlers.
