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 NFL, this means that you have the ability to play TWO Quarterbacks in your lineup. You are also dealing with extremely different roster requirements. On OwnersBox, you roster one QB, two RB, two WR, one TE, two FLEX and one SUPER-FLEX. This allows for some crazy lineup builds, and should make for some high-scoring DFS slates. With that being said, let’s dive into the plays…


Geno Smith – $6,500

There’s some really strong value this week, which should ultimately allows us to spend up on two QB’s in most of our builds. One of the guys that sticks out at his price is Geno Smith, playing in one of the best games of the slate against the Las Vegas Raiders. Seattle/LV has one of the highest O/U’s on the slate at 47.5 separated by just 4 points on the spread. Smith has been one of the most accurate quarterbacks in the league this season, and looks to have played well enough to earn the starting job again next season. Regardless, this game has some of the highest shootout potential on the slate — pairing Smith one of his receivers + DaVante Adams is a strong move in large-field tournaments.

Running Back

Jeff Wilson – $5,400

This is a strange week, with tons of running back value available especially in the mid-tier. There are quite a few names getting bumps due to guys being out — but none seem to be in a better spot than Jeff Wilson. Miami went out and traded for Wilson at the deadline due to his familiarity with Mike McDaniel’s offensive scheme, and he immediately out-touched Raheem Mostert in his first game as a Dolphin. Both have been involved since, but now it appears likely that Mostert will miss this weeks game against the Houston Texans. If you’ve been living under a rock, you will have missed that Houston is far and away the worst run defense in football. They’re also allowing the most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. Miami are big favorites here, and Wilson is prime position for a monster Week 12 performance.

Wide Receiver

Garrett Wilson – $4,800

One of the stronger value plays on the slate happens to be Garrett Wilson, who pairs with his QB that I’ll be targeting in all formats. Wilson’s route-tree pairs well with the areas of the field that Mike White likes to target — and the Jets showed last season that they’re comfortable letting White throw the ball. Zach Wilson has been pretty much the worst starter in the league, and I don’t view White as a downgrade whatsoever. Wilson has flashed his first-round ceiling multiple times this season, and I’m not sure if he should ever be priced this low even after a few down games. I like Wilson in all formats and our Projections Portal views him as one of the top point per dollar values on the slate.

Tight End

Mark Andrews – $5,800

Andrews finally looks healthy after pretty much a month of uncertainty surrounding his health. Given the savings we are getting at RB/WR and even QB this week, it allows us to comfortably spend up at tight end for the ceiling of someone like Andrews. He’s coming off a game in which he logged over 90% of the Ravens offensive snaps, and was officially off the injury report with no designation for Week 12. When healthy this season, Andrews has dominated the targets from Lamar Jackson and is averaging over eight per game this season. He’s the only TE that can rival the ceiling of Travis Kelce on this slate, and we get him at a $1,000 discount in a game that should be close. He can be stacked with Jackson, or used as a one-off in tournament builds on Sunday.


Mike White – $5,800

Another value play, we get a starting QB priced under $6,000 due to the news that White would start for the Jets after pricing was released. We don’t have a huge sample-size of White as a starting QB in the NFL, but what we do know is that he’s the cheapest QB on the slate despite him throwing for over 400 yards in a game last season. Even if he struggles, this is too cheap for a starting QB that has legitimate upside against a defense that ranks bottom-five in fantasy against QBs. I think he’s viable in all formats this weekend.
