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…
Russell Wilson – $7,200
People should be more excited about Russell Wilson. For years, all we’ve heard about in Seattle is the #LetRussCook movement. Overall, the Monday Night Football game was marred by horrific late-game decisions from first-year Head Coach, Nathaniel Hackett. Beneath the stench of playing for a 64 yard field goal down a point — Russ was unleashed. Denver threw the ball a ton, Wilson’s 42 attempts was top-five after Week 1 and that comes with 8.1 yards per attempt as well. Denver was victimized by TWO fumbles at the goal-line against the Seahawks, if even one of those is a Wilson passing TD he is probably viewed differently against the Texans. It’s clear that he isn’t going to run like his old days, but if he’s throwing the ball 40+ times with high efficiency he is still capable of monster games. Against a beatable secondary, I think a big game looms from Wilson in his Denver home game debut.
Darrell Henderson – $5,200
Henderson is priced fair across the industry in Week 2, but nothing sticks out more than his $5,200 price tag on OwnersBox. Sean McVay has long been a believer in the bellcow back, riding one back for the majority of his career. Most assumed that would be Cam Akers this season, but the Week 1 usage told a different story. Henderson logged the second-highest snap-share of all backs (82%) and also ran a route on just under 80% of Matt Stafford dropbacks. Los Angeles is coming off a mini-bye after playing last Thursday night, and has one of the biggest team totals on Sunday currently sitting at 28 points. Overall, I think that Henderson is a solid projection this week but I do question how high the ceiling truly is. This feels like a bet on him to score a touchdown (or two). He is going to be popular, and if he finds the end-zone he could have a massive day. That being said, I’m not sure if he has the ability to hit 16+ fantasy points without a touchdown. This price tag is too low, and he will be a staple of my lineups in all formats.
Jahan Dotson – $4,900
I wrote up Jahan Dotson in my Week 1 OwnersBox article, and he gracefully responded with two touchdowns in his first NFL game. Touchdowns just aren’t a sticky statistic, and I can’t expect a repeat performance in that department. However, we can expect him to continue to be on the field a ton and that multi-TD performance didn’t earn him much of a price hike. It was pretty clear he would be starting right away for this team — and he ended up running a route on all but two of Carson Wentz’s dropbacks in Week 1. There were multiple reports stemming from Commanders camp that Wentz and Dotson had already formed a strong connection. It’s easy to see why Wentz would love throwing to Dotson. He was an elite separator at Penn State, and always seems to be open. It does appear he will have the only tough draw in the Lions secondary — against Jeff Okudah — but overall I’m betting on his talent in what could easily turn into a shootout.
Pat Freiermuth – $4,700
Tight End is tougher this week with less convincing cheap options. Freiermuth sticks out above the field when looking at sub-$5K options — especially when you factor in that he had 10 targets in Week 1. He also paced his position in expected fantasy points, and ran a route on 33 of Trubisky’s dropbacks. It’s rare to get a role like this at Tight End, especially for one that is priced this cheap. We also get a bit of a narrative play — with Muth growing up a Patriots fan. He grew up in Massachusetts and will face off with his child-hood hometown team on Sunday. It’s clear that he will be heavily involved in the game plan weekly and I love him in all formats in Week 2.
Tua Tagovailoa – $6,200
Last week I wrote up Jameis Winston as one of the cheapest QB’s on the slate — and this week we are awarded a very cheap Tua Tagovailoa. Most expected this team to be run-first, but given how bad their offensive line is it’s tough for them to really get going on the ground. Miami was the most aggressive team in football throwing the ball early last Sunday, and I expect that trend to continue. Most pegged Baltimore as a positive regression candidate when it comes to injuries on defense– but they already lost Kyle Fuller in that Week 1 game against the Jets. I love stacking teams with consolidated target shares — like Cincinnati and Minnesota. Miami looks to fit that mold this season, with Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle being the clear focuses of their game plan weekly. News came out Friday that star LT Terron Armstead is questionable for this game — if he’s good to go I’m buying in on the Dolphins this week and taking advantage of this low salary.
