There are new number-one teams in the AFC and NFC, while Team Tadlock continues to lead the PFC. The next two weeks include a lot of players on bye, so now is when teams with depth rise to the top.
Team Tadlock now leads the OIL in OPR, with the Rebel Alliance and Nightmares right on their tail.
There are only five weeks until the playoffs, and the contenders are beginning to separate themselves from the pack. The AFC and PFC have 7-1 teams in first place, while the NFC's pace-setter is 6-2. Only one team remains winless: the AFC's Warm Bodies.
Not only are the top two teams in OPR from the AFC, the two will meet this week in the OIL game of the week. The PFC's Team Tadlock is in third place while the highest NFC team is the Whackers in sixth place. The AFC three of the top five teams in the OIL, but, of the worst 14 teams in the OIL, half of them also hail from the AFC.

Sadly, we are a quarter of the way through the 2019 season, and four teams (including the three-time champion Arrogant Americans) have yet to win a game. Meanwhile, three teams have yet to lose a game: the AFC's Brewmasters and Cocks (which are separated by less than one point at the top of the standings) and the NFC's Dead Again (who lead the league in points scored).

There has been a change at the top of the standings in the AFC and PFC, where Roe and Tadlock, respectively, have wrestled away the top ranking. But the NFC remains unchanged, as Schmidt rolled on to 3-0 with the 0-3 'Mericans on the menu in Week Four. As always, click on the image to view the standings directly on Yahoo.
Week One is in the books, and 2019 season is officially in full swing. Click any standings image below to go to the conference's Yahoo page. OPR will be released after Week Four, as the sample size is too small this early in the season for it to mean anything.
This is pinned so the commissioner doesn't have to answer 100 "where do I pick?" texts between now and September.
Congratulations to all 18 playoff contenders. There were some incredibly tough breaks (such as Duffy losing two games by a combined 0.15 points or Tadlock missing the playoffs despite having the second-most points in the PFC), but that's the way the cookie crumbled. Pennington set the record for most points in a season while Rogers sadly broke the record for most losses (with an 0-13 record).
The final OPR rankings are below. Pennington topped the league but fell just short of setting the record for best OPR (1.297 in 2010 by the Arrogant Americans). The top 10 is comprised of four NFC teams and three each from the AFC and PFC.
Heading into Rivalry Week, a whopping 12 of 18 playoff berths are clinched. Below are the standings and playoff picture for each conference.
Well, this is a first. With one week remaining, all six playoff spots are clinched. Now all that is left is the seeding. Venable and War Pony are locked into the one seed and a first-round bye. The number-two spot is a toss-up between Green and Peacock, as the Doughboys and Cocks are separated by just 13 points. Should each of them win, it will come down to their point totals to determine who gets a coveted first-round bye. The Warm Bodies and Vultures each sport the same 8-4 record as the second- and third-place teams, but Nye and Brosh are so far behind in points that neither can overtake Green and Peacock. The six seed is Zerger and his two-time defending champion Redlegs. With a win and losses by three of the four teams ahead of him (aside from Venable), he can finish as high as third due to his high point total.
