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…


Sam Ehlinger – $5,500

Ehlinger has taken over as the Colts starting QB heading into Week 8 against the Washington Commanders. Through seven weeks, Matt Ryan was third in football in pass attempts, and I don’t see that trend continuing with Ehlinger. They are not going to be throwing the ball as much, and I think they’re going to begin leaning on Jonathan Taylor and their run game much more in the coming weeks. That being said, we are still getting a starting QB for only $5,500 and this is someone with big-time rushing potential. He topped 30 rushing TD’s in his collegiate career at Texas, and has been a willing rusher in his first two NFL preseasons. It’s likely he’s at least $500 more expensive on his next slate, and I’ll take the savings this week while prioritizing the skill positions.

Running Back

Alvin Kamara – $6,000

I’ve been very heavy on Kamara the past few weeks. There’s always a threat for him to lose out on touchdowns, but few players have seen as good of a role in recent weeks. Kamara is up to number one on this slate in weighted opportunity at his position, and it doesn’t seem like a lock that Michael Thomas and Jarvis Landry will return this week. If those guys are confirmed out, it will be hard for me to avoid Kamara with seemingly positive touchdown regression heading his way. Vegas has allowed a ton of catches to the running back position this season, as well. If we catch the week he finds the end-zone he’s going to absolutely crush, and he’s one of my favorite options again this weekend.

Wide Receiver

Wan’Dale Robinson – $4,600

Not that Kadarius Toney was playing for the Giants, but with him now traded to Kansas City — Robinson is the clear number one for the Giants the rest of the way. Darius Slayton is still there, but Robinson led the team in targets last weekend and it’s clear that New York wants him to be the focal point after spending a second-round pick on him. He was working his way back from injury, but his snap-count jumped all the way to almost 70% in Week 7. Seattle’s defense has been horrible this season, especially in the slot where Robinson will be primarily playing. He’s one of the top value plays on the slate and will be a staple of my lineups in Week 8.

Tight End

George Kittle – $5,200

Tight end is a tougher position this week with significantly less value than what was available in Week 7. This has Kittle sticking out as the top-option for me especially if Deebo Samuel has to miss this game. Kittle has logged a 21% target-share over the last few games and that’s good for the third-most among tight ends on this slate. I also think that from a football standpoint, the arrival of Christian McCaffrey will help Kittle the most of the pass catchers. Linebackers will need to key in on CMC out of the backfield and that can help open things up for Kittle over the middle of the field. He also has four touchdowns in his last six games against the Rams.


Daniel Jones – $6,100

There’s enough value to stuff in two QB’s this week, and since I’m interested in Robinson I think stacking him with Daniel Jones makes sense. Jones has actually been really good for fantasy purposes this season. He’s running a ton, and I’ve already pointed out how bad Seattle’s defense has been. It’s doubtful that he will ever have a massive game in terms of passing yards especially with his current weaponry, but when he has legitimate 100+ yard rushing upside he can win you weeks by himself. It’s a strong match-up and I think he’s a good tournament play in Week 8.
