While being in the lead of a national contest his nothing new to Don Metter, I’m willing to bet that he loves seeing his winner winner chicken dinner franchise atop the 2017 FFPC Main Event. Carson Wentz’s 34.7 led the way for Metter in Week 7 with Todd Gurley (25.4), Zach Ertz (22.4), Jacksonville’s defense (22) and Mark Ingram (21) also having an impact on his 180.2 tally.
Ron Hacker’s Cracker Packers remained in second place for the second straight week, and Chad Schroeder saw his Cocktails and Dreams move up to third place from sixth. Joe Stutesman’s Who Wants IV? stayed in fourth place with last week’s leader Dave Asrani falling to fifth.
