I notice sometimes the GLSP articles for the various positions contain a sortable grid where you can easily scroll through the findings and sometimes (like this week for WR and RB), they are not included. The article contains a link to the GLSP but i don't know how to produce the grid (or just download the data into Excel). Is there a trick to doing this?

Hey Burt, thanks for the question. We're debuting a lot of stuff right now, and it can be a little tricky. The GLSP articles use Dave Caban's projections, which can also be found on an individual player basis in the awesome Weekly Explorer. Our general guidelines for these articles are to include the table, but the writers have some flexibility here. I'll mention to them that you like the tables (and obviously those provide some good info).
The GLSP apps are separate and provide a second source, and a lot of functionality in how you operate the various screens. (Here's RB GLSP.) The apps don't provide a full grid, because you have the option of selecting certain elements of the player's game log on a per-player basis, which will change the projections.

Put me down as someone who likes the availability of spreadsheets. I've got my teams loaded on excel and downloading the spreadsheet and using the vlookup makes it very easy to compare the numbers.

Would love to have all of the projections listed on the articles. I use vlookup as well and it makes it so much easier

To be fair, I had forgotten that they are making Daves weekly stats explorer available so you can pull the data from that.
I plotted Dave's GLSP vs the rotoviz GLSP and there were some fairly significant differences. I'm sure some of the difference is that I only go back about 6 games and I don't know how many games Dave's program uses, but even playing around a bit with the slider still showed surprising variation with some players (Diggs, and Gronk). Something that I thought I've noticed in the past is Tight ends seem to get lower projections relatively to espn, cbs, yahoo, projections relative to Wide Receivers. I'm not sure why that might be because they seem lower even when looking at WRs that pup up similar numbers for the year.
