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…
Tom Brady – $6,500
This is an all-time Tom Brady spot and I will be stacking him up with Mike Evans in Week 6. Brady didn’t exactly smash in Week 5, and it’s probably good that he didn’t because his ownership would be much higher in this spot. Lost in the shuffle of his divorce is the fact that they’ve been throwing the ball more — a lot more — since their receiving corps got healthy. He’s topped 50+ pass attempts in each of the last two weeks and this team notoriously likes to keep their foot on the gas. He threw for 350 yards last week but only threw one touchdown pass. Pittsburgh comes into this game down multiple corners and starting star safety Minkah Fitzpatrick. Given how close these games have been for the Bucs this season, this feels like a strong get-right spot and one they can comfortably put up 30+ points.
Eno Benjamin – $4,400
Benjamin will be no secret on Sunday, but stands out as the top-overall value at any position. He’s already been contributing, with 8+ fantasy points in three of five games including 14 fantasy points last week. He paced the backfield in touches with James Conner leaving the game early — and both Conner and Darrell Williams have been ruled out for Sunday. Benjamin has always been a fantasy darling, and is way underpriced for what will be a full-time role. Seattle is bottom-three in fantasy points allowed to running backs. This is also one of the best games on the slate, featuring a 50.5 O/U separated by just 2.5 points. Overall, he is the number one source of value and will be a staple for my lineups.
Devin Duvernay – $4,800
Duvernay was confirmed as a strong option on Friday afternoon when Rashod Bateman was confirmed out for the Ravens. Duvernay is in the midst of a break-out season for the Ravens — and I love the way he was used sans Bateman last wee. He led all Ravens receivers in targets, but also received three carries and lined up in the backfield numerous times. He’s playing a mini wide-back role similar to Deebo Samuel, and I love this price tag. Nothing stands out about his individual match-up, but the is under $5,000 and should bee 8+ touches on an offense with over a 25 point team total.
Tyler Higbee – $4,800
The theme of this week for me is value, allowing me to spend-up for high-dollar stacks in good spots. We continue the value trend at tight end with Tyler Higbee, who continues to be one of the most productive fantasy tight ends. Not only does he lead all NFL tight ends in targets, he’s running a route on 86% of Matt Stafford’s drop-backs which is the third-highest route-rate on the slate among his position. Los Angeles’ offensive line struggles continue to force Stafford into quick, short throws to Kupp and Higbee. He is among the position leaders in red-zone usage as well, and is simply too cheap for his role in this offense.
Josh Allen – $7,500
And we finalize our super-flex spot with the top QB on the slate — Josh Allen. Loading up on value plays at running back and receiver will allow fitting in both Tom Brady and Josh Allen into our builds, something that really hasn’t been possible most weeks with the pricing. Allen is in the best-game on the slate — a 54 O/U rematch of last seasons playoff classic against the Kansas City Chiefs. Allen continues to break fantasy football, accounting for almost all of Buffalo’s offensive outcome this season. More importantly, Allen has smashed this KC defense over the last few seasons, specifically on the ground. His ceiling is the highest of any player on this weekend’s slate and it’s tough to avoid him in this expected shootout.
