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.

Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall takes day off Saturday
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5:10 pm ET) After participating in the first two days of training camp, the Redskins held cornerback DeAngelo Hall out of Saturday's full-pad practice as a precaution, reports the New York Times.

Hall is recovering from a torn Achilles tendon and the plan is for him to practice for two days then take a day off.

"Not being in football in 10 months, I'm going to need some monitoring, as far as reps and things like that, just to make sure I don't kill myself in the first two weeks," Hall said. "You've got a little bit of anxiety — kind of anxiousness, nervousness, excitement — so it felt a little different. But once you get on the field, it's still football. My leg still worked. Still not quite as explosive as I want to be, and they say that's going to take some time, but I feel good."
