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.

Oneil Cruz, Pittsburgh Pirates
Projected Rank: 37th
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.

Pittsburgh has one of the lower team totals tonight, but I think there’s value here in buying shares of Oneil Cruz. For starters, despite the low team total, it is worth noting that it’s risen almost a full run since open and is now up to 3.6 runs. Cruz has been seeing the ball very well the last week or so, and remains one of the higher upside options nightly due to his power. This is a strong match-up for him against Taijuan Walker, who allows over 40% hard-hits to left-handed batters. Cruz has the highest ISO on the team against right-handed pitching, along with the highest expected wOBA. He also sports a .438 wOBA against splitters in a small sample-size, which is Walker’s most-used pitch to lefties. He’s one of our highest projected players overall in this marker, and should be ranked higher in the pre-ranking in my opinion.
