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.

NFLPA files appeal on behalf of Ray Rice
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) The NFL Players Association announced Tuesday that it has filed an appeal in the case of former Ravens running back Ray Rice, CBSSports.com NFL insider Jason La Canfora reports.

Rice was initially suspended two games for an offseason domestic-violence incident, but he was cut from the team and suspended indefinitely by the league after a new video of the incident surfaced last week. The argument in the appeal is that Rice is being punished twice for the same offense. The NFLPA has requested that an independent arbitrator hear the appeal rather than commissioner Roger Goodell.

The NFLPA has begun to notify players of the revamped suspensions under the new policy, including Browns receiver Josh Gordon officially having his suspension reduced to 10 games. Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker, Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey and Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick are among the handful of players who should be able to rejoin their respective teams Wednesday in preparation of playing in Week 3.

However, Dolphins defenders Dion Jordan and Reshad Jones are not expected to be affected by the change in policy, the Palm Beach Post reports, leaving their suspensions active for two more games.
