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…


Tua Tagovailoa – $6,500

Tua was featured in this article last week, and actually found his way into my OwnersBox Core Plays given out to subscribers. I’m going right back to the well in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills in a game with a massive 53 O/U/ I actually wanted to be a bit lighter on this game, but as the week has wore on it’s become obvious how likely this game is to shoot out. Injuries are piling up on the defensive side of the ball for the Bills. Already without Tre White — they ruled out Jordan Phillips and Micah Hyde on Friday. On top of that, both Dane Jackson and Jordan Poyer look to be in doubt for Sunday’s game. It will be a tough task to defend this sharp of an offensive scheme without most of these guys. Miami has also been bad on defense — which is why Buffalo owns a 29 point team total. Overall, I’m back in on this game and the spot looks strong for Tua with the injury situation in Buffalo. I love stacking the Dolphins this season because both of Tyreek and Waddle own over 30% of the team targets. It’s one of the most consolidated target shares in all of football, which is what we love to attack in DFS.

Running Back

Leonard Fournette – $5,500

Fournette has yet to find the end zone this season, but he made a point to address that in a tweet after last weekends win over New Orleans. He’s racked up 20+ touches in each of the first two games — and the Buccaneers have been feeding him. With how banged up their offensive line is, Tampa Bay is running the ball at the highest clip we’ve ever seen with Brady at QB. Fournette ranks third on the slate in opportunity share at his position, and this price is simply too low. Green Bay has a solid defensive unit, but more so in the secondary than up front. They allowed over 100 yards on the ground in Week 2 to David Montgomery, and I like the spot for Fournette. Overall, this salary is too little for his workload projection — even in a low total game.

Wide Receiver

Tyler Lockett – $5,400

Lockett is another cheap option that I think is in a great spot on Sunday. Not much attention will be forced onto the Seahawks passing game in a contest featuring a low 42 O/U. Lockett had the reputation of potentially being washed coming into the 2022 season — but the data tells us he still has juice. He ranks first among all receivers in average separation per NFL Next Gen Stats — and also owns the third-highest% of his teams Air Yards. He’s getting separation, getting down field and getting looks, it just hasn’t translated to the end zone yet. He also has a much better match-up than DK Metcalf, who will be matched up on the stingy AJ Terrell. Lockett will line up across from Casey Heyward mostly, who he has a speed advantage over. I think this game could have more offense than most expect — and I love Lockett in Week 3.

Tight End

Irv Smith Jr – $4,200

Tight End features a few standout values in Week 3, but none stick out more than Big Irv. It was clear that Minnesota took it easy on him in Week 1 following little to no training camp time as he returned from a thumb injury. Smith broke out on Monday Night Football in Week 2 hauling in five balls for 36 yards and a TD — not including a dropped TD as well. Detroit is one of the worst coverage units in football, and have long struggled with big, athletic tight ends. This is one of the top game environments on the slate — and I think Smith is arguably the top value play on OwnersBox this weekend.


Marcus Mariota – $6,000

Mariota wins Week 3’s “too cheap QB” Award coming in at just $6,000. He is never going to throw for a huge amount of yards, but he manages two passing touchdowns coupled with the 6+ rush attempts we’ve been seeing from him there is reason for optimism. As I mentioned above in the Lockett blurb, despite the low total I think this game has sneaky shootout potential. Seattle is throwing the ball more than they did with Russell Wilson, and hopefully if they get up on Atlanta that will force them into a more pass-heavy game-plan. Regardless, this feels very cheap for a starting QB, especially one that we saw run the ball 12 times in Week 1.
