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…
Jared Goff – $6,200
I liked Jared Goff in DFS last week, and now he checks in as my top-overall play in the game of the weekend against the Vikings — featuring a 51.5 O/U. Goff has been nothing short of amazing at home this season, with a 17/3 TD/INT ratio compared to a 2/4 ratio outside of Ford Field. He finally has a full compliment of weapons — including Jameson Williams — for the whole season and he’s averaging just shy of 23 fantasy points per game in Detroit. Minnesota ranks bottom-eight in fantasy points per game allowed to QB’s, and the O/U tells us that a lot of points are likely to be scored on these defenses. Goff has actually posted a 40+ fantasy point game this season, so it’s nice to know the ceiling is there, as well. I think this is the best spot he’s seen all season, and I’ll be overweight on him even at high expected ownership.
D’Andre Swift – $5,500
Stacking Goff with Swift is a way to get a bit different in your builds on Sunday, and I actually think they correlate quite nice together. Swift was finally unleashed in Week 13, out-snapping Jamaal Williams 39 to 23 in a blowout win over the Jaguars. There are some concerns that the rise in playing time was attributed to the score of the game, but it’s clear that Swift is as healthy as he’s been potentially all season. Even if the playing time gap reverts back to an even split in Week 14, Swift’s passing role is so good and that usage could be heightened in a potential shootout. He has 17 targets over his last three games, and has seen red-zone usage/carries as well. I love this price tag and potential ceiling against the Vikings.
Phillip Dorsett – $3,800
Dorsett is probably the cheapest wideout I’ve written up all season, and I can’t believe he was left at this price tag. Houston is likely to be without both Brandin Cooks and Nico Collins in Week 14, making Dorsett a sure bet to be one of the lead receivers. They’re also making the switch back to Davis Mills at QB, which I do believe to be an upgrade over Kyle Allen. This is a tough on-paper match-up against the Cowboys, but Houston should be throwing the ball in the expected game-script. Overall, he doesn’t need to do much at this price tag and if he falls in the end-zone he will likely be in the optimal lineup at this low of a price.
Chig Okonkwo- $3,700
Chig Okonkwo has been one of the most impressive players in the NFL this season that nobody knows. He has the most 40+ yard catches among all tight ends — more than Travis Kelce and Mark Andrews — and he’s done it despite playing limited snaps all season. He’s hyper-athletic, and the exact type of player we could see breakout if given more playing time. He’s racked up 10 targets over his last two games, and was the main beneficiary in terms of playing time after Treylon Burks departed last weekend. Burks is out for Week 14, and Okonkwo is one of the cheapest tight ends on the main slate. He has clear big-play ability, and could really crush this price tag against the Jaguars.
Jalen Hurts – $7,300
With all of the value I’ve written up in this article, it will be easy to spend-up for the last spot and that decision comes down to Josh Allen or Jalen Hurts. Both of these games are in low-total divisional games, but both also feature the highest ceilings at their position. Hurts reminded everyone what he can do last week, throwing for 300+ yards and multiple TD’s while adding one on the ground as well. New York has fallen off defensively the past few weeks, and it’s clear they were kind of carried by third-down luck earlier this season. I’ll be looking at stars and scrub type builds on OwnersBox this weekend, and Hurts is my preferred spend-up in all formats.
