MLB Jock MKT Plays (4/11/22)

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.

4/11/22 Top Buy

Bryce Harper, Philadelphia Phillies

Potential Bid: $7.00

Break-Even Point: 22nd

If you’re new to Jock MKT, you may be struggling to read what’s listed below the Harper recommendation. Essentially, I’m willing to spend up to $7.00 per share for him. He needs to finish 22nd in the field for me to make my money back with the opportunity for me to make more if he finishes higher.

For example, if I buy 1 share of Harper at $7.00 and he finishes 22nd in this field, I make my $7.00 back. If he finishes 1st, I win $25 (profit $18.00). If he finishes last, I win $1 (lose $6.00). It’s that simple.

Harper and the Phillies find themselves in a strong spot on Monday night against Taijuan Walker. Over the last two seasons, Walker has just a 21% strikeout rate and is allowing an 89 mph exit velocity to left-handed batters with 45% fly-balls. Harper has skewed more towards fly-balls throughout his career, and has far and away the best numbers on this team against right-handed pitching. Since the start of the 2020 shortened season, we are looking at a .357 ISO, .452 wOBA and 52% hard-hit rate for Harper in the split. Easily one of the top hitters in baseball. We want to chase power upside when spending higher amounts on a hitter and that is certainly what Harper provides. Philly is also sporting over a five run implied team total, opening the potential to stack some teammates alongside Harper tonight.

Secondary Buy

Pete Alonso, New York Mets

Potential Bid: $4.75

Break-Even Point: 36th

I’m going to stick in the same game and go with what appears to be a solid discount on Pete Alonso. Alonso is too far down the pre-ranking for tonight’s slate even though Ranger Suarez is a good pitcher. Despite being good, Suarez is a lefty and we know that Alonso is one of the best hitters in baseball against left-handed pitching. Suarez gets a ton of ground balls, so if attacking him we must make sure our hitter can get the ball up in the air — Alonso does just that, with a 46% fly-ball rate. His power numbers are video game-like against southpaws, and he matches up well with Suarez’s pitch mix as well. Last season, Suarez threw primarily sinkers to righties a pitch that Alonso absolutely feasts on. Since getting the call to the major leagues, he owns a 100 mph average exit velocity vs sinkers with a huge .670 wOBA. I am comfortable enough with Alonso’s upside to target him in a tough match-up, and I think we can get him pretty cheap on Monday night.
