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 – Kyle Schwarber
Schwarber continues to be a fantasy beast, and he sits at the top of our projections once again on Thursday. He has been one of the best hitters in baseball this season against right-handed pitching, owning a .359 wOBA and .335 ISO. We haven’t seen a ton of Edward Cabrera for the Marlins this season, but this is a mediocre right-handed arm and not someone I’m scared to attack. Philly has a solid 4.7 run team total and should be lower-owned than the Coors Field teams. Typically, I write up a value play here but I am betting Schwarber to hit a homerun today and he’s a building block type play for me.
Top Pitcher – Dylan Cease
Cease is the easy top pitching play on Thursday afternoon, matching up with the Kansas City Royals. Cease has been one of the best pitchers in baseball this season, and possesses massive upside with a 33% strikeout rate this season. He also has dominated this Royals lineup, sporting a .284 expected wOBA allowed and 34% strikeouts against their current roster. Typically, we need a ton of value to spend up on these high-priced arms but there is a solid value choice for our second pitcher today making Cease the easy play. I don’t think anyone can rival his raw ceiling on this slate, so securing his floor and upside makes sense in all formats.
Top Super-Flex Play – Zach Plesac
I hate this play, but having a capable starting pitcher below $8K opens up a ton of things and we can’t overlook this spot. I don’t think Plesac is a good pitcher, but I also don’t think this Tigers offense is any good at all…something has to give. The good thing about Plesac is, since he is so cheap, we don’t need him to dominate to be happy about his score. There are Coors Field bats priced close to $7K that can realistically get 0 points — if we get anything over 10 fantasy points from Plesac here I would take that all day. Detroit is striking out so much, he can make up for any runs allowed with a few K’s as well.
