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 Value Play – Jake Lamb
As I’ve noted — value is a key part of building on OwnersBox as it allows you to potentially spend-up for two pitchers. Yesterday we hit on Vinnie Pasquantino who hit a homerun at min-price — while Lamb comes in at min-price tonight. This isn’t quite as strong of a match-up, the Dodgers own just a 4.5 run total tonight, but this is too cheap. Lamb provides exposure to one of the best lineups in baseball, and he should crack the lineup against the right-handed Yu Darvish. Lamb has always been better against right-handed pitching, and he’s making hard-contact at a 50% rate this season in limited playing time.
Top Pitcher – Shane McClanahan
We have two aces throwing Saturday night in Shane McClanahan and Nestor Cortes, but lean is towards McClanahan. Typically we would want to avoid a lefty against Toronto since they are so right-handed, but Mac is striking out 36% of right-handed batters faced this season. He leads all of baseball with a 35% CSW% and has essentially been the best pitcher in baseball in my opinion. Both these options have tough on-paper match-ups tonight so I’m going to lean with who I view as the better overall pitcher right now and that is McClanahan.
Top Super-Flex Play – Tyler Anderson
Anderson doesn’t have standout metrics, but as a whole he has been good for the Dodgers this season and Vegas clearly respects him with the Padres sporting under a four run implied team total. He won’t blow you away with strikeouts, but a 13% swinging strike rate implies room for some positive regression in that department. It’s also a good match-up against the Padres who have struggled against lefty pitching at times this season. Their current projected lineup for tonight owns just a .312 wOBA against southpaws with over 23% strikeouts. Anderson is pretty cheap at $7,900 for his upside and is my favorite option for a second-pitcher when baking in price.
Top Stack – New York Yankees
I loved this spot for the Yankees yesterday, their game got postponed and now they get the same match-up against Aaron Civale tonight. Civale has been terrible to both sides of the plate this season, but especially righties allowing over a .380 wOBA in the split. That could be bad news against the likes of Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, and friends tonight. It’s worth noting that the Yankees run total is rapidly approaching five runs, up almost a half run since opening at 4.5. Overall, the Coors Field game is going to dominate the attention of users tonight when it comes to stacks so this is a good opportunity for us to the get the Yankees at a bit lower ownership.
