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?!
Glad you asked! You want to CLICK HERE to download their app on whatever mobile device you own. By doing that and using promo code KARMA, you will automatically get a FREE $5 added to your account! Once you decide to deposit, they will add another FREE $25 to your account, no matter how much you deposit! Make sure you get in our free Discord chat room to join all our 24/7/365 OwnersBox lineup discussions as well!
Top Play – Vinnie Pasquantino
Vinnie P stands out as a clear value for me tonight — priced at $3,900 against Jose Suarez. There are some weather concerns here, so we need to monitor that up until lock but if the game is good to go I love this spot for the Royals offense. Pasquantino has huge power, and I think this too cheap for a batter of his upside even if it was a tough match-up, which it isn’t. Targeting power is a big thing for me with these value plays, and being able to post a big score is well in his range of outcomes. He’s been much better vs RHP than LHP this season, but he still owns a massive 60% hard-hit rate vs southpaws so there should be some big games on the horizon.
Top Pitcher – Spencer Strider
This slate is full of top-tier ace pitching, but most of them are in sketchy match-ups and Shane McClanahan has to deal with some potential bad weather. That leaves Spencer Strider as my number one, matching up with the Philadelphia Phillies. Philly strikes out a ton vs right-handed pitching — over 23% as a ream — and they aren’t as good offensively as you think either. Their current projected lineup owns just a .301 wOBA vs RHP this season…that’s not great. Strider has dominant strikeout ability, and his only real issue has been walks. The good news for him is that this lineup walks just 7% of the time as a team. I think he is a legit $10K+ pitcher so we get him at a bit of a discount with big-time upside on Tuesday.
Top Super-Flex Play – Ethan Small
Typically, I’m looking to spend-up for two pitchers most nights but I can’t ignore Ethan Small at only $5,000. We’ve only seen Small make one big league start, and the results were not great. That being said, he still struck out 26% of batters faced with pretty elite swing and miss stuff. He also generated over 50% ground balls, and was victimized by his control. We have to assume he will be a bit more settled in during his second-start, and know he can rack up fantasy points in a hurry with strikeouts. Regardless, $5K is just too cheap for a pitcher, and even 8-10 fantasy points feels like a win at this price.
