Luol Deng has agreed to join the Miami Heat on a two-year, $20 million deal.

Deng will be responsible for attempting to fill some of the void left by Lebron James. He wasn't at 100 percent last season after recovering for an Achilles injury. For his career, however, he's averaged 16 points and 6 rebounds per game. His fantasy value gets a boost moving to Miami, who should still be a contender in the East. ANALYST:

Todd Cunningham went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI against Arizona on Tuesday.

After going hitless in his last 16 at-bats, Cunningham had a nice bounce back game on Tuesday. Assuming he continues to get regular playing time, you can count on some speed from Cunningham. But given his minor league track record, it’s hard to count on other production from him. Analysis: Brett Talley

Nick Markakis went 2-for-4 with two doubles, a run and an RBI against Arizona on Tuesday

Markakis has yet to leave the yard this year and has just one steal. His batting average (.299) is helpful, but his BABIP is a bit high, and something in the .270 range seems more reasonable going forward. So a little average and maybe a few runs is really all Markakis has to offer. Some power will come at some point, but it may not be worth waiting on. Analysis: Brett Talley

Freddie Freeman went 1-for-4 with two runs and a steal against Arizona on Tuesday.

Freeman’s batted ball profile is a site to behold. You simply don’t see hitters that hit line drives as frequently and consistently as Freeman does. It caps his home run upside in the low-to-mid 20’s, but it also means he can hit for plenty of average despite striking out a bit much. Analysis: Brett Talley

Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-1 with a double and an RBI along with four walks against Atlanta on Tuesday.

Four walks! That bumps Goldy’s OBP up to .471. He’s on pace to surpass 40 home runs and 20 steals. His .400 BABIP won’t hold, but given that Goldy is hitting .355, you can still expect him to hit .300 when his BABIP trends toward his .352 career BABIP. You could maybe argue Bryce Harper has been as good as Goldschmidt this year, but it would be hard to make a convincing argument for anyone other than Goldy as best hitter in baseball right now. Analysis: Brett Talley

A.J. Pollock went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI against Atlanta on Tuesday.

Pollock gives you solid batting average and is on pace for 30+ steals. He also has a shot at getting to 15 home runs, and either his runs or RBI production should be helpful depending on where he ends up in the lineup most.  Analysis: Brett Talley

Ender Inciarte went 1-for-3 with two runs, two RBI, two walks and two steals against Atlanta on Tuesday.

Inciarte is on pace for 20 steals and 80+ runs with a good batting average. He doesn’t walk much so it’s possible he could lose his spot atop the order, which would obviously hurt his run production. But Inciarte is returning excellent value on his draft day price and should continue to do so. Analysis: Brett Talley

Brad Ziegler recorded his fourth save of the season against Atlanta on Tuesday allowing one hit.

Ziegler is an unconventional closer, but he keeps finding his way back into that role. He keeps the ball on the ground at an extremely high rate and thus keeps the ball in the park, so he’s not prone to a blow up, which is a desirable trait for a closer. Analysis: Brett Talley

Shelby Miller allowed four runs and six hits with six walks and two strikeouts in 4 1/3 innings against Arizona on Tuesday.

Miller entered Tuesday’s game with a 1.48 ERA and a 3.86 xFIP, and the gap somewhat narrowed with Tuesday’s outing but a two-plus run gap still exists between his ERA and xFIP. With a roughly 2:1 K:BB ratio and below average strikeout and walk rates, Miller has been extremely lucky to post the numbers he has at the moment. Now is the time to sell high. He’ll go again on Monday against the Padres. Analysis: Brett Talley

Josh Collmenter allowed three runs and six hits with no walks and three strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings against Atlanta on Tuesday.

Collmenter’s control has always been his best skill, and he’s issuing fewer walks than ever this year. Unfortunately he’s also striking out fewer batter than he ever has. An 11.9 percent strikeout rate and a fly ball lean in his home ball park just won’t cut it. He’ll go again Sunday against the Mets. Analysis: Brett Talley

Carlos Beltran will get an X-Ray after he fouled a ball off his foot Tuesday.

Beltran has been hitting better lately after a slow start to the season, but this could derail his season if he has a serious injury. Garrett Jones could play full time if Beltran is out though Ramon Flores could be in the mix as well.  Analysis: Steve Pimental

Salvador Perez said he took and passed a concussion test after Tuesday's game.

Perez left the game for precautionary reasons in the eighth inning after taking a foul ball off his face mask. His fantasy owners shouldn't worry too much at this point though he could still get the day off Wednesday. Drew Butera would get most of the work behind the plate if Perez did miss any time. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Brandon Barnes went 3-for-4 with a run and two RBI in Game 2 of Tuesday’s doubleheader against the Dodgers.

With Corey Dickerson on the DL, Barnes has seen very regular playing time, but he hasn’t done much with it. A .500 BABIP has him with a .395 batting average, but that obviously won’t hold. And he has yet to steal a base or hit a home, plus he drew his first walk in Game 1 of the doubleheader. His success so far will be short-lived once his BABIP crashes or once Dickerson returns. Analysis: Brett Talley

Nick Hundley went 3-for-4 with two doubles, three runs and two RBI in Game 2 of Tuesday’s doubleheader against the Dodgers.

Hundley won’t keep hitting .294 once his .354 BABIP tails off, but something in the .265 range from here on out is reasonable. He’s obviously taken well to his new home ball park, so he could have another 8-10 home runs in his bat in addition to the five he already has. He continues to get most of the work behind the plate, and his value should largely remain intact as long as that remains the case. Analysis: Brett Talley

Carlos Gonzalez went 3-for-5 with a double and a run in Game 2 of Tuesday’s doubleheader against the Dodgers.

Gonzalez just doesn’t have the speed he used to have, and it’s affecting his steals (one this year) as well as his BABIP and, in turn, his batting average. That’s particularly a problem given that he’s always been a heavy groundball hitter, and he’s hitting more groundballs than ever this year. His strikeout and walk skills are better than his career averages, and his hard hit ball percentage is well below its norm to the point where some regression is in order. So maybe some sort of bounce back should be coming. Analysis: Brett Talley

Troy Tulowitzki went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Game 2 of Tuesday’s doubleheader against the Dodgers.

Tulo has three home runs in his last five games, so his power may finally be starting to come around. The problem is that he’s still striking out much more and walking much less than he ever has before. Thankfully he continues to roll with a high BABIP which keeps his batting average well above average. Analysis: Brett Talley
