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?).

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.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Former Bears linebacker Lance Briggs retires
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Panthers sign QB Derek Anderson to contract extension
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1:04 pm ET) The Panthers reached a two-year contract extension with quarterback Derek Anderson, the team announced Wednesday.

"I’m excited about this for my family. To be here with the players, coaches and management we have – everything is top notch," Anderson said. "It was a no-brainer for me."

Anderson will backup Cam Newton. He was slated to become a free agent after the 2015 season.


Report: Bills RB LeSean McCoy may not be ready for Week 1
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12:36 pm ET) While Bills coach Rex Ryan recently said he was optimistic running back LeSean McCoy would be ready for the regular season opener, a source indicated to ESPN that McCoy's status for Week 1 is in jeopardy.

"Well we certainly expect him to be ready to go, I hope," Ryan said, per ESPN. "If not then the next man has to step up. Boobie [Dixon] got a lot of reps out there today. Bryce Brown got a lot of reps [Wednesday]. So we will see. I am not going to put that all on one man. If he is not ready to go, he won't be in there."

McCoy has not been able to play during the preseason after he suffered a hamstring injury at practice. He has been able to conduct some light footwork, agility and cardio drills, but his conditioning needs work.

"It's way too early to say whether [McCoy] will play or not. He is doing a little bit more every day. But hell yes, I'm concerned about that," the source said. "I can't say for sure he's going to be with us Week 1. I can't say that at all. It will take everything we got just to get him ready for game day, and then we get to game day [there's] no way he can be in great football shape. So I think he will be on a pitch count, I think at the very best."
