Fantasy Impact: Saturday's start was the third in a row in which Wheeler went seven innings and allowed just one earned run. He lowered his ERA to 3.99 on the season and should get one more start against the Marlins at home to end the year.

Mets outfielder Michael Conforto went 1-for-3 with an RBI and two walks in Friday's win over the Reds.

Fantasy Impact: Conforto is having a solid year but has been slumping for the past week. His hit on Friday was his first in more than a week as he has gone cold at the worst possible time for many fantasy owners who were battling for head-to-head championships this week.

Mets second baseman Robinson Cano went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Thursday's win over the Diamondbacks. The homer was his 13th of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Cano has now hit in four straight games, with two home runs during that span. He is available in more than 50% of leagues and could be a decent waiver-wire pickup heading into the final couple of weeks of the season.

Vargas owns a 4.01 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, with 81 strikeouts in 94 1/3 innings this season.
