I have got good news regarding the issues we have been having with the lineup-submission section... The techies think it was a server issue. They have moved (the section of) our website (they host) to a new server. Hopefully, that solves it!

 
Ugh...  Dominoes...  It seems that one fix has caused another problem to crop up.  As of right now, we are ALL unable to access each others' lineups for the week.  I think this will get rectified quickly (hopefully by tomorrow) because I do not think it is a complicated problem, but if not, please just share your lineups with each other for now by other means: here on "the Gridiron", by text, etc.  Thank you for your anticipated understanding, patience and cooperation!

Another full bill over the league fee comes in from GBRFL-ing Gridironers Art Vandalay a.k.a. Frank Gonzalez and now NINETEEN-time financial contributor Drew Rosenhaus a.k.a. Mark Hahn!  Your show of gratitude is much appreciated and greatly valued!  Every single cent counts and helps things on "the Gridiron" and with the GBRFL continue to move forward!  Thank you very much!

I remain in the market for a (filler) QB...  Unless Colt McCoy is named the starter for the Redskins against the Dolphins here Week 6, I need one this week!  I will not need one again until Week 10!  Anyone want to make a fair trade?  I am not going to give up the farm for a filler quarterback.  Moreover, my team is not good enough to justify doing so.  By the same token, you are not going to get anything for the filler quarterbacks sitting on your bench, except from someone like me heading into a week like this here Week 6.  Get something while you can!

... you guys have experienced for years how I have broken ties, my thinking was that the other interpretation was ultimately invalid. The terminology I have used in the past is that I never do tiebreaks according to "mini-standings" (that is to say, breaking off the teams that are tied and then applying the tiebreaks just to that group of teams) even though it may look that way in many instances. It is always head-to-head all the way down first, indeed, even when the default is points differential. (You can find my elaborating on all this on the message board here if you do a search.) ONLY when more than two teams are tied in the standings AND applying the tiebreaks head-to-head cannot break the tie in the standings is points differential appealed to across all the teams tied so as to break the tie.

 
Actually, the Week 1 standings provide a great example of the "head-to-head"-centered tiebreaking I employ.  All three of Trout, Danny and Warner, respectively, had tiebreak over Pak by points differential.  Warner had tiebreak over Trout by head-to-head record.  Trout had tiebreak over Danny by points differential.  And, Danny had tiebreak over Warner by (the rarely appealed to third tiebreak) total points scored.  Given this inability to break the tie in the standings head-to-head, I then appeal to overall points differential, first, and then total points scored, second, which yield the order to be Trout, Danny, Warner.  That said, if Warner had scored more points than Danny, he would have jumped to the top of that heap because he would have had head-to-head tiebreak over BOTH Trout (head-to-head record) AND Danny (total points scored), and the order would have been Warner, Trout, Danny.  Whew...  Follow?  That is how it has been being done all these years...  Over and out...

Well, no one has chimed in here yet, but Jerry Rice has...
 
Jerry Rice says Antonio Brown played him, thinks Brown's signing with Patriots was always the plan
 
Great football minds think alike!  LOL!

Including on the GBRFL group text, LOTS of overreactions to Week-1 (for that matter, 1st-half,... nay,... 1st-quarter) performances.  That said, I have been wrong A LOT over the last 15 years!  So, we shall see...

Something for "the Red Zone", finally...  'Tis been AWHILE (and it probably will be again given life's present configuration, but I digress...).
 
The prevailing, conventional wisdom on the effect of AB's release is that it is bad news for Carr.  I do not disagree that Carr has lost a top-flight weapon.  That is obvious.  HOWEVER, they got in very little practice time together, so the chemistry was still going to take some time to develop.  Moreover, Carr has probably dodged a bullet in the long run.  AB could have been a thorn in Carr's side were things not going just as he wanted, say, if Tyrell Williams were in any remote fashion to play 2018 Pittsburgh's Smith-Schuster to Pittsburgh's 2018 AB.  It also looked last year like AB lost a half-or-so step.  As for Williams, despite the fairly tepid response from the pundits, there is no doubt he is the biggest beneficiary of AB's release.  This is now his chance to make a splash!  As such, he is a fantastic pickup in fantasy football.
