MLB DFS 8/5/22 – OwnersBox Best Buys

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!

Every Friday we will be dropping a SuperFlex Fridays podcast on our YouTube channel to help you build your lineups. Here is today’s episode below:

Top Play – Matt Carpenter

Carpenter is the top value for me on Friday night, priced at $3,900 against Dakota Hudson. Hudson has little to no strikeout ability, and relies heavily on ground balls to get outs. Carpenter should be able to counteract those ground balls, seeing as he has the highest fly-ball rate on the team at 55%. He also has elite numbers against right-handed pitching since joining the Yankees, and has legitimate upside at what appears to be too cheap of a price. He also should be motivated, facing his former team in the Cardinals. Overall, New York is one of the top stacks on today’s slate and getting a key piece of their lineup for below $4K is a priority for me.

Top Pitcher – Dylan Cease

There’s plenty of value to go around tonight, which means we can comfortably spend-up on the top-overall pitcher. Cease continues to be one of the best pitchers in fantasy baseball, striking out 33% of batters faced this season. He also has a strong match-up against the Texas Rangers — whose projected lineup sports just a .311 wOBA against right-handed pitching. This isn’t a great offense, and that can be backed by the fact that their Vegas total is narrowly over 3 runs in this spot. We have a limited sample-size of Cease against the Rangers active roster, as well, resulting in almost 40% strikeouts. I prefer him to Robbie Ray as my SP1 and I think he has the highest-overall ceiling on Friday night.

Top Super-Flex Play – Kyle Gibson

Typically we like to spend-up for two pitchers, but Gibson has to be considered a top play at $8,000. He matches up with the Washington Nationals, who will continue to trot out one of the worst lineups in baseball without Juan Soto and Josh Bell. Their projected lineup tonight carries a combined .276 wOBA against right-handed pitching, and they have no power at all. Luke Voit appears to be the only feared hitter in this lineup right now, and he comes with a 30% strikeout rate. Gibson is not a high strikeout pitcher, but he is solid by real-life standards and this is the type of spot he can really crush. This is too cheap for a pitcher in this match-up, and he is must for me in all formats.
