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…
Justin Fields- $7,000
Fields is projecting for pretty low ownership this week. which has vaulted him to the top of my QB board. He continues to be fantasy footballs top breakout player this season — he’s rushed for 1,000 total yards and needs just an average of 677 per game over his final three contests to break Lamar Jackson’s QB rushing record. Chicago’s coaching staff has spoken about Fields breaking the record, and it appears that they are set on letting him run as much as possible down the stretch. He has 10+ carries in four of his last five games, including 15 last week against the Eagles. This is one of the coldest games on the main slate, and we should expect the Bears to be running but at the same time, it could end up being a positive game-script for him if the Bears are losing. We’ve seen him basically play schoolyard football a few times this season, and his ceiling is as high as any other QB on the slate. In a week filled with low total games, that high ceiling comes into play in tournament and if he pops off – you may need him to win first in any contest.
Devin Singletary – $5,400
Sticking with some correlation, Devin Singletary looks like a really strong play opposite Fields and provides a unique way to game-stack this game. Usually, we are looking at an opposing WR opposite our stack, but going with Singletary in the cold makes a ton of sense especially against this defense. Chicago has been horrible against the run pretty much all season, and have allowed the eighth-most PPR points to running backs. Singletary is coming off a very good game in similar weather at home, and his box score would look a lot better had he scored on one of the final plays of the game instead of going down at the one to keep the clock running. Buffalo has really leaned on Singletary on the road this season — he’s topped 13+ touches in each of his last four road games and I expect him to be a focal point of the game plan in this week’s weather.
DJ Moore – $5,600
After a few weeks off, Moore is back in our lives as one of the highest-owned players on the slate against the Detroit Lions. Any time a Carolina Panthers player is chalky, it’s smart to avoid, but Moore is in one of his best match-ups of the season. They’ve allowed the second-most PPR points to opposing wide receivers and continue to turn into a clear pass-funnel defense. Carolina doesn’t throw the ball a ton, but they may have to throw more than intended on Saturday with how good this Detroit run-defense has been. We know that Moore has a decent ceiling regardless of who is at QB, and he’s my favorite mid-tier play in Week 16.
Juwan Johnson – $4,100
This game features the lowest total I’ve ever seen at 32 points, with 25+ mph sustained winds expected. Typically, I wouldn’t target it at all in DFS, but I do think there’s ways to get different this week and one of them is by using Juwan Johnson. I do expect the Saints to still throw the ball some, and Johnson may be their main target with both Chris Olave and Jarvis Landry out. He’s seemingly the only guy left to catch shorter, over the middle passes other than the running backs, and he’s coming off one of his best games of the season. Cleveland has struggled against tight ends at times this season with some of their best linebackers down — and Johnson will likely be sub-5% owned on Saturday.
Derrick Henry – $7,200
I don’t see how I can escape an article without writing up King Henry this weekend against the Houston Texans. He’s going to be massively-owned, so fading in tournaments does come into play but the spot couldn’t get any better. By now, I’m sure you’ve heard how dominant he’s been against this team — eclipsing 200+ rushing yards in each of his last four games against them. He also did so in the same situation earlier this season, with Malik Willis at QB as well. Overall, I don’t view him as a must-play in all formats due to the possibility that their offense can’t move the ball with Willis at QB…but he is one of the top projections on the slate and has a realistic shot at 30+ carries on Saturday.
