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!
Every Friday we will be dropping a SuperFlex Fridays podcast on our YouTube channel to help you build your lineups. Here is today’s episode below:
Top Play – Oneil Cruz
Cruz is not as cheap of a hitter as I usually write up in this section, but $4,300 is still way too cheap for a good hitter in Coors Field. Pittsburgh matches up with German Marquez, who has fallen off a cliff this season and sports a 5.00 expected ERA. The worst part is, he isn’t striking guys out either with just a 19% strikeout rate. He’s been especially bad against right-handed batters, but he struggles with lefties as well which is good news for Cruz. Cruz has essentially been the Pirates best hitter since he was called up, his advanced numbers are all great and his .260 ISO vs right-handed pitching is second-best on this roster. We want exposure to this games 11 run O/U and Cruz is one of the best plays on Friday’s slate.
Top Pitcher – Alek Manoah
We have some big-time pitchers on the bump tonight including Brandon Woodruff, Robbie Ray, Yu Darvish and Manoah. Of the group, I prefer Manoah who is installed as a massive -360 favorite over a watered down Kansas City Royals lineup. With some pretty key guys missing, their projected lineup carries a lowly .282 wOBA and .100 ISO into Friday night’s game. They still don’t strike out a ton, but that number is mainly influenced by two or three batters — outside of them there is a slew of high strikeout bats mixed in. Manoah is not as good overall as someone like Woodruff, but he does have some swing and miss stuff and should be able to carve up a weak lineup like this.
Top Super-Flex Play – Zach Plesac
Typically I try to spend up for two pitchers, and that strategy can 100% be implemented tonight. That being said, it doesn’t help anyone for me to write up multiple $10K pitchers when we know they are the best plays, so let’s explore Zach Plesac at $7,900. I wrote up Triston McKenzie yesterday, and he responded by striking out 12 Tigers. I don’t expect that from Plesac tonight, but we can’t overstate how bad this Detroit lineup is. Their projected lineup tonight owns a combined .261 wOBA against right-handed pitching…yikes! Plesac doesn’t have that same strikeout upside as McKenzie, but he has allowed just a .310 expected wOBA to Detroit in his career which is a number we would certainly take at his price. He’s listed as a -190 favorite and I think he is a fine super-flex option in tournaments.
