How our Game Works
OwnersBox has built a best-in-class Fantasy Sports platform that will provide a superior experience to millions of sports fans.
- Join a Contest:
- Draft your Team! Each team gets 10 players and a set amount of “Game Opportunities” per roster position! Pick your players to maximize those game opportunities! For example, in MLB, some players will only play 5 times a week, others 6, and some 7. You'll want to maximize the number of games your players can play.
- Manage your lineup! Swap and deactivate/activate players to ensure you’re getting the most out of your team! There are lots of different strategies that can help you pull out the win!
- Compete over 7 days - Win and get paid, or advance to the next week if it is more than a 2 team contest (tournament bracket style).
Joining a Contest:
OwnersBox gives our users the option of joining a public contest to play against different players across North America, or users can create their own contest to play against friends and family.
Contests can be played using real-money or Ownersbucks (risk-free contests). OwnersBucks contests are great for beginners or anyone looking to sharpen their skills.
2 Team (1 week duration):
Two people compete head-to-head (H2H) over the course of a week (7 days) and the winner takes the prize pool.
4 Team (2 week duration):
Four people compete in a head-to-head bracket-style tournament with each H2H matchup taking a week (7 days). The two winners move on to the next round and play each other for first place the following week. In total, 4 team contests take two weeks from start to finish.
8 Team (3 week duration):
Eight people compete in a head-to-head bracket-style tournament with each H2H matchup taking a week (7 days). The winners move on to the next round and play each other, and so on until the completion of the contest. In total, 8 team contests take three weeks from start to finish.
16 Team (4 week duration):
Sixteen people compete in a head-to-head bracket-style tournament with each H2H matchup taking a week (7 days). The winners move on to the next round and play each other, and so on until the completion of the contest. In total, 16 team contests take four weeks from start to finish.
We provide users with public or private specific contests;
Public: entering contests in the Lobby section.
Friend: allows you to create a contest and invite any of your friends.
Group: allows you to create a contest and invite members of a group you're a member of. The results from this contest type are tracked within the context of the group.
Sponsored: allows you to create a contest and pay all the entry fees for the invited members.

Drafting your team:
Drafting on the OwnersBox platform is always a Live Draft and follows the Snake Draft format.
Meaning the order of who picks/drafts are reversed each round.
i.e. Round 1 ( User 1, User 2, User 3, User 4)
Round 2 ( User 4, User 3, User 2, User 1)
Drafts can begin immediately following a Contest filling, or you can set a specific date and time for your draft to begin.
Each user will have a fair chance of filling their rosters with a good mix of players. Each contestant will have their own unique team as no athlete/player can be drafted by multiple contestants, and no rosters are pre-determined. Each selection is given a 1 minute time limit to draft. If a user does not make a decision within the time limit, a player will be auto-drafted for that selection.
***adding players to your queue is a good way to ensure if your time limit is reached, you will at least auto-draft a player that you were already interested in.
Our draft also provides users the option to auto-pick every selection. This is useful for beginners who may not be experienced in drafting for a specific sport or who are new to Fantasy Sports. The auto-pick option will draft the best available player based on the remaining roster spots you need to fill for your team. This can also be used for someone who is unable to be present for their entire draft.
If you are disconnected from the system while in the live draft, auto-pick will automatically enable and draft your remaining players.

Manage your line-ups:
Using swaps (2 per week) and activating/benching players throughout your 7 day matchup are the keys to coming out victorious.
If you have used both your swaps, you can submit a waiver request to add a player for the following week of your contest. If a waiver request is successful, it will count as one of your 2 swaps for the following week. Swapping an injured player will not count as 1 of your 2 swaps per week.
During your 7 day matchup, you have a limited number of games you can accumulate points from. We call these, 'Game Opportunities'.
This is the control mechanism that drives our unique contest. You have to activate or bench players throughout the week to ensure you are getting the most points possible while maximizing your game opportunities per roster position.
There may be rare occasions during a season that no league games are played on a calendar date.
In order to provide all OwnersBox players with enough time to maximize their game opportunities, OwnersBox will remove that calendar day from your contest week. This is to ensure each and every contest, that requires it, will have 7 days of games to accumulate game opportunities and fantasy points.

Tournament-Style Bracket & Payouts
We offer a tournament-style bracket format that pays you out incrementally as you progress through the contest! No more waiting for the final week to earn winnings. Get rewarded as early as winning your first matchup.
