Mets | Jacob deGrom stifles Rockies

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 18:19:37 -0700

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.

Mets | Jacob deGrom struggles vs. Marlins

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 06:41:45 -0700

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.

Mets | Logan Verrett won't be skipped

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 15:43:04 -0700

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.

Mets | Jacob deGrom tosses one-hitter

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 15:22:08 -0700

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.

Mets | NYM set rotation for second half

Wed, 13 Jul 2016 19:32:48 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon will open the second half Friday, July 15, against the Philadelphia Phillies, followed by SP Logan Verrett Saturday, July 16, and SP Jacob deGrom Sunday, July 17. SP Steven Matz will pitch Monday, July 18, against the Chicago Cubs while SP Noah Syndergaard works Tuesday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Matz probably has the worst assignment of all for fantasy owners as he works on the road against All-Star Jake Arrieta and the Cubs. Colon, Verrett and deGrom face much better circumstances facing Philadelphia.

Mets | Jacob deGrom spins tidy outing

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 15:02:12 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom allowed two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out seven batters through seven innings during the Mets' 4-2 win over the Miami Marlins Wednesday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: DeGrom has been cruising this season with a 2.61 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 91 strikeouts through 93 innings. However, he won just his fifth game of the season Wednesday, which is a disappointing total. Otherwise, it has been more of the same from the fringe fantasy ace, and you should continue to start deGrom confidently in all fantasy formats

Mets | Jacob deGrom tosses eight scoreless

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 19:51:01 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom allowed seven hits while walking one and striking out six over eight scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Atlanta Braves Saturday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: Despite a 2.67 ERA, deGrom is just 3-4 on the year thanks to a lack of run support. He is still a strong starting option in season-long formats, but his lack of wins hurts his appeal in DFS games.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the winless skid, deGrom still has a sparkling 2.80 ERA. He just isn't getting any run support. He had another quality start with a high rate of strikeouts and he remains a must-start across all fantasy formats and DFS play despite the winless stretch.
