The OwnersBox SuperFlex Salary Cap game is here! The SuperFlex format eliminates the randomness and unpredictability of the defense and kicker positions while maximizing what fantasy players love most, offense! For beginners, it’s a much more appealing game option with a more offensive outlook, and for experts, it takes away the luck and randomness, making it more skilled and highly competitive.

5 Wide Receivers You Need
Henry Ruggs ($4,900) – Ruggs has been sneaky good so far this season, pacing out for over 1200 receiving yards on the season so far. He’s been one of the best deep threats out there and leads the league in yards per catch at 22.3. Carr has loved getting Ruggs the ball down the field, as he already has 7 receptions of 20+ yards down the field, which is the 2nd most in the league. Ruggs ceiling is incredibly high on a week to week basis because of his big play upside. Plus, his floor isn’t even half bad either, scoring over 8+ fantasy points in every week since week 1.
Darnell Mooney ($4,800) – Another deep threat option, Mooney has a great matchup against the Bucs this week. Unlike Allen Robinson, Mooney has actually had a couple decent games this season. Mooney has more targets (39-36), receptions (25-21) and yards (306-234) than Robinson through 6 games, and will likely have the easier cornerback matchup against Cockrell while Arob will get Dean. Assuming the Bucs get out to a lead early, it will force the Bears to actually throw the ball for once, and I believe Mooney will be the biggest beneficiary of that.
A.J. Brown ($6,500) – Brown was back last week, posting a 7 for 91 stat line and being the true alpha wide receiver like he is. Because he didn’t get in the end zone, the hype might not fully be back, but in a matchup with the horrible Chiefs defense in the game with the highest total of the week, I’d be shocked not to see him find the end zone. Julio Jones reaggravated his hamstring injury near the end of the game last week so he may not even suit up. This game just feels like a monster AJ Brown week.
Rashod Bateman ($4,700) – The breakout game is here. Bateman suited up for the first time last week, and while the numbers weren’t great, a lot of that can simply be attributed to the Ravens not needing to throw the ball at all. They dominated the Chargers from the start, and because of that, Lamar only threw 27 times, completing 19 of them. Despite this, Bateman was still targeted 6 times, catching 4 of them for a 22% target share (tied for the highest on the team). The Bengals have had a very solid run defense so far this season as well and I expect both teams to throw the ball a lot. This is the week we see the true Rashod Bateman.
Jaylen Waddle ($5,200) – When Tua is behind center for this offense, Jaylen Waddle benefits greatly. Just look at the splits between the 2 games Tua has played vs the 4 he hasn’t:
The connection between these 2 is real, and we’re seeing it in every part of the field. The biggest shock to me is how much Tua loves targeting Waddle in the end zone. Waddle is literally the only person on the Dolphins Tua has thrown a touchdown pass to, and he always seems to be his first read when they’re down there. The Dolphins get the Falcons this week, so the matchup is terrific for this duo to continue what they’ve started.
