New York Mets SP Steven Matz ended a nine-game winless drought, allowing four whiles walking two and striking out six over six scoreless innings against the Miami Marlins Sunday, July 24.
Fantasy Tip: A lack of run support had as much to do with his drought as his own performance. Matz should remain a quality starting option in mixed formats, and he could be a buy-low candidate.

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 Steven Matz was pounded for four earned runs, eight hits and a walk with five strikeouts over five innings in a loss Monday, July 18, against the Chicago Cubs.
Fantasy Tip: Matz has lost three straight starts and five straight decisions dating back to May 25. His ERA has risen from 2.28 to 3.56 during the slow slide. He remains a must-start in most fantasy formats and DFS play despite the winless span. He hasn't been that bad, as his run support has dried up considerably.
