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 – $6,000

Fields and the Bears offensive play-calling is rounding into form, and I think he is one of the best options on this slate at his current salary. Miami made some upgrades to their defense at the deadline, but this is still a bottom-ten defense against QB’s this season in terms of fantasy points allowed. More importantly, Fields has been running more in recent weeks with 14, 12 and 8 attempts over his last three games — topping 60+ rushing yards in each of those three games. These stats can be noisy, but Miami is top-five in rushing yards allowed to QB’s this season. Overall, I love what I’ve been seeing from Fields and if he keeps running like this he’s going to be a solid option weekly.

Running Back

Aaron Jones- $6,200

This is basically the nut spot for Jones, and he’s someone I’m looking to be overweight on against the Lions. Detroit is allowing the third-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs and despite what feels like a slow start – Jones is top-ten in PPR points at his position this season. He’s been getting fed heavily, and while Dillon is still a factor, Jones is averaging over 20 touches per game over the last two weeks. Green Bay has not been good this season, but they’re favored and have one of the highest team totals on the board this weekend. If they come close to their 26.5 implied total, Jones will be a big factor in that and he has one of the highest ceilings on the slate.

Wide Receiver

Josh Palmer – $5,200

Palmer will likely garner plenty of attention by the time we get to Sunday, but this price is way too good to avoid. Keenan Allen and Mike Williams are going to miss this weeks game — making Palmer, DeAndre Carter and Michael Bandy the Chargers top-three receivers against the Falcons. Palmer has struggled a bit in terms of creating separation this season, but this will be a big chance for him against a depleted secondary. AJ Terrell was already ruled out once again for Atlanta, and they’ve struggled the last few weeks without him. He’s averaging almost seven targets per game with Williams active this season, making him a good bet to lead the team in looks this weekend with him off the field. He’s my favorite value play in Week 9.

Tight End

Brock Wright – $3,700

This is more of a price play than anything, but Wright is expected to be the Lions lead Tight End post-TJ Hockenson. He was in concussion protocol earlier this week, but was not in the non-contact jersey at Friday’s practice and Dan Campbell had previously stated he should be good to go against the Packers. Green Bay looks to be without  LB DeVondre Campbell. Wright is very athletic and tested well pre-draft — he won’t need to do much to pay off this price tag. If he happens to find the end-zone, that could put you miles ahead of the field getting a TD from a sub-$4K option. I need the salary, and I think he can be used in all formats + he correlates with our Aaron Jones play.


Josh Allen – $7,400

This play is pretty obvious, but I think with some of the value we have available you can play two-QB with one of them being Josh Allen. He’s working on his third straight season of being the best QB in fantasy football, and while the Jets defense has been good this season he is one again the top-overall option. Aside from being the top option, he also projects almost five full points better than our next projected QB which is truly a huge gap when considering all the factors that go into the projections. Buffalo has the highest team-total on the main slate and it’s really hard for me to consider an Allen fade if only building a few teams this weekend.
