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.

Marshawn Lynch retools current contract, receives higher base salary
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8:20 pm ET) The week-long holdout worked to a certain extent for Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch. The 28-year-old restructured his current contract with the Seahawks, which will give him $6 million guaranteed this season, per Pro Football Talk.

Lynch will make a $5 million base salary in 2014, with a possible $500,000 roster bonus and another $500,000 bonus if he reaches 1,500-plus rushing yards. He totaled over 1,500 yards of offense with 14 total touchdowns last year but had over 400 total touches between the regular season and postseason.

DeMarcus Ware back at practice
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5:52 pm ET) Broncos defensive end DeMarcus Ware returned to a limited practice Thursday after missing two practices with a bruised lower right leg, reports ESPN.com.

Mike Wallace might not be ready for preseason opener
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5:48 pm ET) Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace missed a second straight day of practice with a sore hamstring and won't play in Saturday's scrimmage at Sun Life Stadium, reports the Miami Herald. His status for the Aug. 8 preseason opener against the Falcons is uncertain.

The paper said the injury is not serious, but "obviously slows the growth of Wallace's and quarterback Ryan Tannehill's ability to team up on dynamic long passes."


Bills going to 'feed' Sammy Watkins
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5:41 pm ET) Bills rookie receiver Sammy Watkins "may not be the savior they hope he will be in Buffalo, but this team is going to feed him the ball and they are gambling he can make a quarterback out of EJ Manuel," reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. "I’m not sure that will be the case, but a rookie of the year performance from Watkins wouldn’t shock me either."

La Canfora listed Watkins first among his 10 breakout players.


Dolphins switch out tight ends
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5:34 pm ET) The Dolphins signed tight end Raymond Webber and waived tight end Brett Brackett, the team announced.

Marshawn Lynch reports to camp
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5:28 pm ET) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch officially ended his holdout and reported to training camp, reports NFL Network. His holdout lasted less than a week.

Geno Smith gets every first-team rep
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5:15 pm ET) Jets quarterback Geno Smith took all 16 of the first-team reps Thursday, while Michael Vick got none, reports the New York Post. Until Thursday, Smith has been getting about 75 percent of the first-team snaps.

"I told [offensive coordinator] Marty (Mornhinweg) and Marty knows I understand that look, we have a certain mission to accomplish and we’ve got to get things going, we’ve got to get on the right track and I understand that. I won’t stand in the way of that," Vick told the paper.


Chiefs add Steve Gregory
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5:02 pm ET) On the same day safety Eric Berry suffered an ankle injury, the Chiefs signed veteran safety Steve Gregory. Gregory played in 26 games and started 23 for the Patriots the past two seasons, registering 116 tackles, four interceptions and two forced fumbles.

Eric Berry sustains ankle injury
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5:00 pm ET) Chiefs safety Eric Berry left Thursday's practice with an ankle injury, reports the Associated Press. Coach Andy Reid said Berry, who was carted off, has a sore ankle, "not an Achilles tear or any of that, but they’re evaluating him. They’re just seeing what it is."

Seahawks tweak roster
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4:48 pm ET) The Seahawks put tight end Anthony McCoy (torn Achilles) on injured reserve and signed receiver Ronald Johnson, who's spent time with the Eagles and 49ers.
