We are beyond thrilled to “officially” announce our newest partners at OwnersBox. While being well known for their WFS (Weekly Fantasy Sports) product, they have recently launched their first ever DFS platform and have been using none other than Karma Nation to test it! You’re probably asking yourself right now, what is OwnersBox and how are they different?
What is OwnersBox? How are they different?
OwnersBox is the newest DFS lineup platform giving you more lineup flexibility than ANYONE else by creating a “SuperFlex“. For MLB, this roster spot allows you to lock in ANY infielder, ANY outfielder, and ANY starting pitcher! You are also not forced to play any specific position as their MLB lineup is simply 4 infielders, 3 outfielders, 1 starting pitcher, and the 1 SuperFlex spot!
Sounds interesting, how do I sign up?!

Make sure you get in our free Discord chat room to join all our 24/7/365 OwnersBox lineup discussions as well!
Top Play – Trent Grisham
Value isn’t quite as important today at the INF/OF spots due to a very cheap pitching option (see below) but I still think Grisham is way underpriced. Not only does this game take place in Coors Field, but they are facing off with the corpse of Jose Urena. San Diego is approaching a seven run team total, and will undoubtedly be the highest-owned stack tonight. Urena is allowing a .380 wOBA to left-handed hitters since the start of 2021, and Grisham should be locked into the lead-off role tonight.
Top Pitcher – Max Scherzer
Scherzer checks in as the top option on Monday, and he clearly didn’t miss a beat during his time on the injured list. He returned with six innings of two-hit ball while striking out 11 Cincinnati Reds. Obviously he had a great match-up against Cincy, but it’s clear he is ready to roll for the remainder of the season. Atlanta is a good offense, but their projected lineup tonight sports a 24% strikeout rate against right-handed pitching. We also know that Max’s biggest flaw is allowing left-handed power, and outside of Matt Olson (and maybe Michael Harris) there are no fearsome lefties in the lineup. He strikes out 36% if right-handed batters and is expected to see six of them on Monday night. We also have a 200 PA sample-size of Max against the current Braves roster resulting in a low .308 wOBA allowed and 33% strikeouts. He is the number one play for me tonight and worth the spend-up.
Top Super-Flex Play – Brayan Bello
Bello had a rough go against this same team in his major league debut, but this is just too cheap for a starting pitcher. Bello is the Red Sox top pitching prospect as well, so it’s not like we are spending down on a gas can level pitcher. At Triple A this season, Bello has struck out 34% of batters faced. He gets a nice boost with this game taking place in Tampa Bay, which is more pitcher-friendly than Fenway Park. He also should be more settled in, with this being his second start and him knowing his opponent. This Rays lineup is striking out 26% of the time against right-handed pitching and missing Wander Franco is another huge positive for Bello. Overall, he does have upside and a starter shouldn’t be this cheap ever.
