OwnersBox Week 3 Superflex Salary cap values
Week 1 at OwnersBox has been awesome. The superflex salary cap competition was everything we could hope for and more. We hope you’ve all taken advantage of the free entries and have some winnings to work with for the rest of the season. The superflex format always brings more variance and strategy, and OwnersBox has been delivered. The pitch size has decreased from what we said in Week 1, and while that could mean a lower overall pot, it also means less competition. Week 2 was just as exhilarating as Week 1 at OwnersBox. Looking ahead to Week 3, there are some intriguing values across the board, four of which we’ll highlight below.
Trey’s Sermon (RB – SF): $ 4,200
Trey Sermon is in line for the Sunday night start against the Green Bay Packers. Elijah Mitchell is listed as dubious with a shoulder injury, paving the way for the other 49ers rookie who returns to get the green light. The 49ers are in Jacques Patrick and Trenton Cannon as the only other healthy backs on the list, so Sermon should have all the work he can handle. He looked good in training camp and had a great eight-yard run on his lone run before being knocked out of the Week 2 game with a concussion. Sermon has a bit of pop and is a good system that fits into an attack that likes to run the ball. Volume is king in fantasy, and Sermon should see it in the third week. There is huge value at OwnersBox and should be an important consideration for your programming.
Michael Pittman (WR – IND): $ 4,400
Carson Wentz was back in training on Friday and now has a legitimate chance to play this weekend against the Titans. Wentz being back at center after suffering a double ankle injury would be nothing short of miraculous, but would also serve to make Pittman a blatant value at OwnersBox. Pittman had a breakout game before Wentz left the game with injuries and will look to build on that performance against the Tennessee Titans. This season, the Titans have been lit by wide receivers, dropping 18 receptions for 286 yards per game at the post. They allowed six different receivers to touch 53 or more yards and allowed six touchdowns in total. The Titans are the passing defense to target for two weeks of the season, and with TY Hilton still on the sidelines, that should mean another high-volume performance for Pittman. If Wentz makes it through the match, Pittman could finally have his real escape game. Pittman is a great option if his starting quarterback is active.
Rondale Moore (WR – ARI): $ 4,600
Elijah Moore (WR – NYJ): $ 3,500
Elijah Moore got off to a slow start but seems to be heating up. He saw eight targets in week 2, and while he didn’t do much with them, his breakthrough is coming. He is expected to have another high-volume target game against the Denver Broncos in Week 3. Moore is expected to remain a featured target in the passing game with Jamison Crowder listed as questionable, and with the Jets expected to be at the top again. lagging behind, they will have to ventilate it. Moore has been on the cusp of several big games, and Wilson and his fellow rookie are sure to connect sooner or later. Moore leads the team in aerial yards, has a healthy 17.4 percent target share and has an average target depth of 17.1 yards on the ground. I repeat, the escape is coming. At a great salary of just $ 3,500, Moore is a great value option that will allow you to spend lavishly elsewhere.
