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?!

Top Play – Eloy Jimenez
Per usual, we have some solid value plays at the INF/OF position and tonight I’m focused on Eloy Jimenez. Jimenez has been this cheap since returning from injury, and we simply have to take advantage of this salary while it’s this low. He will eventually get steamed back up after he rips off some good games, but for now it’s way too low. He has a top match-up tonight against Aaron Civale, who has been one of the worst pitchers in baseball this season. He’s been especially bad against right-handed hitters, as well. Jimenez’s surface numbers look bad, but his expected wOBA is .409 so the positive regression should be on its way. I think he is the clear best value on Wednesday.
Top Pitcher – Shohei Ohtani
Many will make the case for Shane McClanahan, Luis Severino or Zack Wheeler tonight…but I’m locking in Ohtani as my SP1. He has a “tough” match-up against the Houston Astros, sure, but this is a match-up he has dominated as recently as this season. We also have over a 70 PA sample-size of Ohtani against this current roster — resulting in a sub-.210 wOBA allowed and a huge 40% strikeout rate. Part of this success can be attributed to Ohtani’s dominant slider. He has one of the best sliders in baseball, and none of the Astros great hitters excel against that pitch. I think he has the highest ceiling on tonight’s slate and if he comes in lower-owned that is only a positive.
Top Super-Flex Play – Justin Steele
This is a star-studded pitching slate, but I actually think Justin Steele is my second favorite pitcher due to his $8,000 price tag. Steele has actually been solid for the Cubs down the stretch, and he is coming off a nine strikeout game against the Brewers. Baltimore hasn’t been terrible as of late, but their season long numbers against lefties leave a lot to be desired. Their projected lineup tonight owns a combined .299 wOBA and 25% strikeout rate against southpaw pitching. They also don’t walk a lot, which helps because Steele ha struggled with control sporting a 10% walk rate. Overall, it’s another night to jam in offense and dropping down a few thousand at our second SP could be helpful.
