MLB Jock MKT Play (8/24/22)

Jock MKT is fun new way to play DFS. In this article, I’ll break down what Jock MKT is and my favorite MLB buys for tonight’s slate. 


What Is Jock MKT? 

The simplest way to outline this is daily fantasy sports meets the stock market. You’ll purchase shares of players for varying amounts, depending on how much others are willing to pay for them during the IPO. Once the Live Trading starts, you can buy players that others want to sell or sell your players during the game. Once all of the games have ended, you will receive money based on how well your player performs compared to the field on the Jock MKT app for the night.

Yordan Alvarez, Houston Astros

Projected Rank:  9th

Example: If I buy 1 share of Tellez at $9.00 and he finishes 14th in this field, I make my $9.00 back. If he finishes 1st, I win $25 (profit $16.00). If he finishes last, I win $1 (lose $8.00). It’s that simple.

Houston has one of the larger team totals on the board tonight at 5 runs, and I love this match-up for them against Dylan Bundy. Bundy is not a bad pitcher, but he perennially allows too much power which is exactly what we want to target for ceiling-level games. Power is no issue for Alvarez, who owns a team-high .345 ISO against right-handed pitching this season. Furthermore, Bundy relies on his changeup to get outs. It’s his second-most used pitch to lefties and one that he goes to when looking for an out. Alvarez has huge numbers against this pitch, including a .301 ISO. Overall, this is a high-upside spot for the Astros tonight and nobody in the lineup has the same ceiling as Alvarez. He’s at the top of our projections tonight and a priority buy for me.
