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!

Top Play – Jeter Downs

There are a few priority expensive arms throwing on Wednesday, which makes value crucial as usual at the INF/OF spots. There are a few quality cheap options, but I’m particularly interested in Jeter Downs against Cal Quantrill. This is a pitcher I’ve attacked a ton this season, mainly due to his lack of strikeout ability. He’s struck out just 15% of batters faced this season meaning it’s a strong chance that balls will be put into play against him. He’s pretty equal in splits to both sides of the plate, but allows more hard-hits to left-handed hitters. Downs hasn’t been great since getting the call to the big leagues, but there is reason for optimism moving forward. It’s a small sample-size, but his .428 expected wOBA vs right-handed pitching is the second-best mark on this team. His main issue has been his strikeout rate, but that should be factored in vs a low swing and miss pitcher. Boston has a nice team total tonight and there should be plenty of offense in this game.

Top Pitcher – Max Scherzer

Kicking off the priority arm list is Max Scherzer, who’s pitching against the New York Yankees…on his birthday. If there was ever a game for Mad Max to get up for in the regular season…it’s this one. For starters, we know that his one Achilles heel has been left-handed power and the Yankees really don’t have too much of that outside of Anthony Rizzo and the recent surge from Matt Carpenter. Yes, they have Joey Gallo but that can also be counted as free strikeouts. He also has excelled against this roster, with a 26% strikeout rate and only a .277 expected wOBA allowed. He also has been lights out in his career when pitching on his birthday, striking out 35 batters in 26 career July 27th innings. His upside is un-matched on this slate and he is my number one arm even against this potent offense.

Top Super-Flex Play – Kevin Gausman

Tonight is very clearly going to be a double-spend at pitcher night for me. Avery did a great job highlighting Jose Berrios yesterday, and it only feels right going back to the well tonight with Gausman. St. Louis will continue to turn in gross lineup cards while in Toronto, with Nolan Arenado and Paul Goldschmidt out of the lineup. Their projected lineup tonight owns a combined .298 wOBA against right-handed pitching with a sub-.150 ISO. Gausman is installed as a massive -250 favorite tonight, as well. Overall, we know Gausman has elite strikeout ability to both sides of the plate and gets to square off with a watered down lineup at home. He’s viable in all formats even at a high price tag.
