The theoretical article concerns growth rates of single cells. There are many studies that model cell cycle as a non-linear oscillator (see Tyson and Novák, 2015). However, growth rate measurements in microbiology are usually done on cell populations consisting several cells. You generally do not observe any oscillation because: Cells are not synchronized ...

For discrete time replicator dynamics, fitness is defined only up to a multiplicative factor. I.e. if you pick some number $k$ then $(f_1, ..., f_n)$ defines the same fitness function as $\hat{f} = (f_1/k, ..., f_n/k)$. In particular, this mean for any $p$ you can always pick a $k$ such that $\langle \hat{f} \rangle_p$ = 1. So using your final equation, ...
