    Week 7 NFL Power Rankings

    Sean is back bringing the heat on the latest installment of the Functional Sportsaholic. We're talking week 7 power rankings. The NFL season has been an odd one to start the year. Who is at the top spot? Are the reigning Super Bowl champs topping the list despite their wide receiver issues? What about the dominant, but now injured 49ers? Has Jalen Hurts led Philadelphia to the top spot or perhaps it's the surging Detroit Lions or Miami Dolphins?

Fantasy is not Reality

I’ve had many of questions going into this year of football glory. There are so many opinions and know it alls, that sometimes it’s tough to know who to listen to and trust. Sean does a great job of giving the “working man” an opportunity at winning their league, but also having a great time during the season! Good luck to everyone and may the odds forever be in your favor.... Loom forward to a great year. Thanks, Sean!
