We see:

Please only submit the CRAN template for the MIT licernse.

Possibly mis-spelled words in DESCRIPTION:
   simpleroptions (3:14)

Software names should be single quoted in the Description field, but I 
doubt you need it as people know your package's namne already.

The Title field should be in title case, current version then in title case:
'Easily manage options files for your packages and scripts'
'Easily Manage Options Files for your Packages and Scripts'

The Description field should not start with the package name,
   'This package' or similar.

Hence less redundancy.

* checking DESCRIPTION meta-information ... WARNING
Dependence on R version '3.4.2' not with patchlevel 0

Use patchlevel 0 if applicable.

You also left a file in the user'S home dir:

It is not permitted to write there without the user explicitly 
specifying it.
