Full Disclosure: Wait for it ...

Our Start of the Week for Week 6 has yet to play since Shonn Greene faces the Dolphins on Monday night, so we'll just take a look at our other recommendations for this past week. But make sure you check back after Monday night when Greene has an outstanding performance (right, Shonn?).

Check out our Fantasy Football podcast!
There is no better source for entertaining Fantasy advice than our Fantasy Football Today podcast. Dave Richard, Jamey Eisenberg and Adam Aizer will help you pass the time as you anticipate Draft Day 2014!

Some of our positive start recommendations from this week included Matt Ryan, Anquan Boldin, Aaron Hernandez and Brandon Pettigrew, who were all Top 10 options at their respective positions. But we also told you to start Ryan Torain, Victor Cruz and Pierre Garcon, who had some horrible performances.

For sit recommendations, we warned you against using Santana Moss, Owen Daniels, Mike Williams and Reggie Wayne. But saying to bench Rashard Mendenhall, Jay Cutler, Jahvid Best and Jacoby Jones turned out to be bad calls.

Then again, if you looked at our sleepers, you would have started Colt McCoy, Earnest Graham and Fred Davis, who all had quality games in Week 6.

Editor's note: The Fantasy points are based on a standard-scoring league with six points for all touchdowns.

Chris Polk could be ready Week 1
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2:00 pm ET) Eagles running back Chris Polk could be ready to play by Week 1 against the Jaguars, reports ESPN.com Saturday, which is why the team opted to release one more running back than expected Saturday.

Polk has been limited through the preseason due to a hamstring injury, but has been able to practice over the last week.
