MLB Jock MKT Play (9/2/22)

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.

MJ Melendez, Kansas City Royals

Projected Rank: 42nd

Example: If I buy 1 share of Melendez 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.

We have officially launched our Jock MKT Projections, which can be found here. The projections like this spot for the Royals against Drew Hutchison. Hutch has been solid for the Tigers this season, but is striking out just 15% of batters faced. On top of the low strikeout rate, he’s really struggled to get left-handed batters out allowing over a .350 wOBA and a near .200 ISO to left-handed hitters. Melendez is the best lefty in the Royals lineup, and it’s not really close. Nick Pratto has shown upside, but Melendez is valued too low in the pre-ranking. His surface numbers look scary, but beneath those we see a solid .457 expected wOBA and 42% hard-hit rate. Overall, this isn’t a great lineup but I think the Royals could put up 5+ runs tonight and Melendez should be locked into the lead-off role again. He’s one of the few batters in this lineup with power and could smash the price you can buy him for tonight.
