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?!

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 – Trevor Story
It’s clear that the Dodgers and Yankees have the biggest team totals on tonight’s slate, but I’m focused on Trevor Story. Story has been his usual self against left-handed pitching this season, sporting a .365 wOBA and .329 ISO. He has a solid match-up tonight as well against Jordan Montgomery. JoMo has been good for New York this season, but is much worse vs righties than lefties and strikes them out under 20% of the time. He also throws a ton of sinkers, which is great news for Story. Over the last three seasons, he has some of the best numbers on the team vs sinkers including a huge .429 ISO.
Top Pitcher – Carlos Rodon
There aren’t any true standout pitchers tonight, and that makes Rodon the clear number one for me. He is the best pitcher as it currently stands when it comes to skillset, striking out 30% of batters faced this season. San Diego certainly has a good lineup, but there are some strikeouts to be had here. He also relies on his slider to get strikeouts, a pitch this team struggles with as a whole. Only Jorge Alfaro owns a wOBA above .300 against sliders. He has the highest strikeout upside, and that makes him a worthy spend-up on Saturday night.
Top Super-Flex Play – Kutter Crawford
I can’t imagine ever really wanting to play a pitcher against the Yankees this season, but here we are. I will say, this is mainly price driven because he is only $5,000 and will actually start. He’s actually coming off a huge start on the 4th of July, as well, in which he struck out eight batters over five and a third innings. This is obviously a really tough match-up, but he does have strikeout ability with a 27% strikeout rate — backed by double-digit swinging strikes. Overall, this is just too cheap for a pitcher I think in this format. He only needs a few points to hit value.
