OwnersBox Superflex Salary Cap Contests Are Here

OwnersBox Superflex Salary Cap Contests Are Here

Our friends at OwnersBox have gone and done it again. We asked, and they listened—no stranger to bucking tradition to cater to underserved markets. First, Ownersbox gave us WFS (Weekly Fantasy Sports) with IDP instead of a kicker and D/ST. Now, by popular demand, OwnersBox gives us superflex salary cap contests. And if that was not enough, Week 1’s contest has a $100,000 prize pool and is absolutely free with the promo code ‘Drew9’.

The Contest

The salary cap contest at OwnersBox will feel familiar to most, with the noted exception being the superflex slot taking the place of a kicker and/or D/ST. The positions to fill are QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, TE, Flex, Flex, Superflex. The potential addition of a second quarterback will require a paradigm shift as far as strategy goes, but more on that in the coming weeks. As mentioned, Week 1 has a $100,000 prize pool. First place will receive $15,000, and the rest of the top-29 will be paid out as outlined in the table below. There will be payouts up until 2352nd place, with those in that range receiving $15.

The Settings

The positions mentioned above are QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, TE, Flex, Flex, Superflex. The scoring is full-point PPR with six point for touchdowns all around and -3 for interceptions. The full breakdown is outlined in the table below.

Why Superflex 

Those familiar with the format will have various reasons why they feel superflex is the superior format. Always at the forefront of the conversation is that it takes a largely devalued position, the position that also happens to be the most important in football, and makes it take on much greater significance in team-building and weekly competitiveness. The other most common discourse is that it provides more balance on the luck vs. skill pendulum. 

No Kickers or D/ST

Those familiar with OwnersBox will already be aware that kickers and D/ST were done away with in the WFS weekly contests in favor of IDP. In the salary cap contest, we now have a superflex slot taking their spot. This makes the contest not only more exciting but a more competitive, skill-based proposition. Yes, there will be some that bemoan the lack of the inclusion of these two traditional positions. They have fans, with the loudest proponents arguing that they are real positions and thus should be included in fantasy. For others, this is yet another reason to give OwnersBox a try for Week 1. 

Initial impressions

The superflex salary cap contests at OwnersBox are a fun and interesting twist that should appeal to both novices and veterans of the superflex format. These contests may prove even more challenging than traditional salary cap offerings but should inherently provide wider variance. The format is appealing enough to earn at least one weekly entry and, depending on the prize pools and field size of Week 2 moving forward, possibly more. Try your hand at creating a free entry and share your results with us once Week 1 wraps up.
