Cincinnati and Bengals QB Andy Dalton reached agreement on a 6-year, $115 million contract.
Now entering the final year of his rookie contract, Dalton can rest easy with a deal done and the security of a six-year contract in his pocket. His teammates, particularly A.J. Green, campaigned for this to get done as well, so the team has to feel good as well. Dalton earned it though, throwing for 4.293 yards and 33 touchdowns last year, both numbers amongst the top 10 of quarterbacks. He did throw 20 interceptions though, so it's not all rainbows and lollipops. He's going to have to rein those in. If he does, then he easily asserts himself as a low-end QB1 in most fantasy formats and should be viewed as such moving forward.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Yunel Escobar left Monday's game with hamstring tightness.
Dan Uggla replaced Escobar in this contest and Escobar should be considered day-to-day moving forward. Escobar was 1-for-2 before exiting the game and Dan Uggla would be in a position to receive extra playing time if Escobar were to miss any extended period of time. Monitor this situation moving forward, seeing as Escobar has become a valuable fantast asset in 2015. Analysis: Colby Conway
Mo Williams has agreed to a two-year, $4.3 million deal with the Cavaliers.
Williams averaged 14.2 points and 6.2 assists in 29.1 minutes for the Timberwolves and Hornets last season. Williams will be able to get some open threes alongside LeBron James, but will be expected to score off the bench. The Cavaliers are attempting to stack this roster to bring a title to Cleveland next season, under the tutelage of King James and a little bit of coach David Blatt. Analysis: Colby Conway
