Free-agent WR Emmanuel Sanders (Steelers) is visiting with the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday, March 15, for the second night in a row, according to a source.
FANTASY TIP: There was a report earlier that stated Sanders was to sign with the division rival of the Chiefs, the Denver Broncos. Perhaps Kansas City is sweetening their offer and making an 11th hour bid to keep him from going to their enemy.

The Denver Broncos are expected to sign free-agent WR Emmanuel Sanders (Steelers), according to league sources. Neither the team, nor the player's agent, will confirm the report.
FANTASY TIP: Sanders would see a bump in fantasy value playing with Peyton Manning in the Mile High City. He would likely be in the mix to replace the receptions void caused by the loss of Eric Decker via free agency. He could emerge as a solid WR2/3 or flex fantasy play.

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias (shin) is expected to miss most of the 2014 season, according to a source close to Iglesias. The speculation is that the Tigers will pursue free-agent SS Stephen Drew (Red Sox).
FANTASY TIP: If true, Iglesias' value drops to nil. Drew would be a solid AL-only shortstop to grab and a decent middle-infielder in mixed leagues. Drew would lose some power potential due to the spacious ballpark, but depending on his spot in the lineup, he could have solid runs and RBI production.

The New England Patriots have re-signed WR Julian Edelman. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
FANTASY TIP: Despite Tom Brady having an off year in 2013, Edelman experienced a breakout campaign, with a career-high 105 receptions for 1,056 yards and six touchdowns. Minitron will be 28 years old by the time the regular season starts, so he should be entering his peak performance years.

The Cleveland Browns have signed free-agent RB Ben Tate (Texans) to a two-year deal worth $7 million.
FANTASY TIP: Although he probably won't be a huge factor in the passing game, Tate represents a huge upgrade over what the Browns used at running back last season. He's coming off a year where he rushed for 771 yards and four touchdowns in 14 games. However, his biggest problem has been remaining healthy - he ended the 2013 campaign on injured reserve after battling cracked ribs for much of the season.
