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.

Lars Nootbaar, St. Louis Cardinals
Projected Rank: 17th
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.

Oneil Cruz crushed for us on Tuesday, and I’m focused on Nootbaar tonight against Cory Abbott. It’s a fairly small sample-size, but Abbott has been especially vulnerable to left-handed hitters allowing over a .360 wOBA and .290 ISO in the split. Nootbaar has been on a tear at the plate in recent weeks, and now owns the highest wOBA on the Cardinals against right-handed pitching (.243). He almost saw one go out of the park again last night, and clearly things are clicking and he’s seeing the ball well at the plate. Abbott throws mostly heaters to lefties, which is good news for Nootbaar as that’s his best power pitch. Overall, he is one of the highest upside options tonight, and one of the top-overall projections on Wednesday evening.
