ESPN Football Power Index - 2018
The Football Power Index (FPI) is a measure of team strength that is meant to be the best predictor of a team's performance going forward for the rest of the season. FPI represents how many points above or below average a team is. Projected results are based on 10,000 simulations of the rest of the season using FPI, results to date, and the remaining schedule. Ratings and projections update daily.

It is different than their preseason power ranking and an example of why they shouldn't do polls until midseason. It obviously reflects the bias of the pollsters preseason rankings and their inability to judge objectively; based on their previous vote.
