Superflex Strategy – 5 Undervalued Players to Consider for your OwnersBox Salary Cap Lineups for Week 1
Quarterback/Superflex: Baker Mayfield, Browns $6,200
Cleveland Browns starting quarterback Baker Mayfield is my favourite low-cost QB play for Week 1 in OwnersBox salary cap contests, and a great start in the Superflex spot. The Browns play the Chiefs in what should be a high-scoring shootout affair between two of the top teams in AFC. I recommend placing Mayfield in your Superflex spot and stacking him with Browns’ tight end Austin Hooper.
Running Back: Joe Mixon, Bengals, $6,100
I will die on the Joe Mixon hill. Joe Mixon has a path to 25+ touches a game with zero competition in the Bengals backfield now that Gio Bernard is a Tampa Bay Buccaneer. A great week 1 matchup with the Vikings exploitable run defense makes Joe Mixon a value at $6,100.
Running Back: James Robinson, $5,800
James Robinson is again the clear-cut starting running back in Jacksonville after rookie 1st round running back Travis Etienne went down with a season-ending foot injury in a preseason game against the New Orleans Saints. James Robinson finished as a top 7 running back in 2020 in Jacksonville and the team only improved this offseason by adding rookie Trevor Lawrence at QB to replace Gardner Minshew. With Robinson back in his workhorse role and with A+++ matchup in Week 1 against the Texans’ horrific run defense, James Robinson is a must-start in OwnersBox salary cap contests at $5,800.
Wide Receiver: Brandon Aiyuk, 49ers, $5,500
Brandon Aiyuk at $5,500 against the Detroit Lions? Smash. Aiyuk is only entering his sophomore season, but he is already looking like one of the most underrated wide receivers in the NFL. Aiyuk was among the top fantasy wide receivers over the second half of last season, and this trend should continue into 2021. Detroit’s soft pass defense should lead to a huge Week 1 for Brandon Aiyuk in your OwnersBox salary cap lineups.
Wide Receiver/Flex: Parris Campbell, Colts, $4,000
Parris Campbell is the play of the week for Week 1 OwnersBox superflex contests- and he might be the play of the season if he stays at $4,000/game. Parris Campbell is already the most talented wide receiver in the Colts wide receiver room, and veteran T.Y. Hilton has gone down with injury in training camp. Parris Campbell is poised to finally break out in 2021 after missing most of his first two seasons with injury. Get Parris Campbell into your flex spots for Week 1 as on top of it all, Campbell has an easy matchup against the Seahawks’ weak pass defense.
