MLB Jock MKT Plays (4/15/22)

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.

4/15/22 Top Buy

Aaron Judge, New York Yankees

Potential Bid: $9.00

Break-Even Point: 14th

If you’re new to Jock MKT, you may be struggling to read what’s listed below the Judge recommendation. Essentially, I’m willing to spend up to $9.00 per share for him. He needs to finish 14th 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 Judge 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.

Judge is someone I typically buy into a ton, despite the strikeouts he continually has arguably the highest raw ceiling on every slate. He and the Yankees have one of the top match-ups on tonight’s board against Jordan Lyles. We know that Lyles is not a great pitcher, allowing over a .330 wOBA and .200 ISO to both sides of the plate over the last two seasons. It’s also pretty warm relative to the recent weather in Baltimore tonight, with winds blowing out around 10-11 mph. Judge continues to be locked in at the plate, he ripped a double late in last nights game and that was after after a barreled up 370 foot flyout as well. His average exit velocity is approaching 100 for the season, and that obviously shows he’s seeing the ball well. To top it off, he absolutely owns this Orioles team and Camden Yards. In 33 career starts at Camden Yards, he’s batting .280 with five doubles and 14 homeruns. That HR number is his highest for any ballpark outside of Yankee stadium. You’ll likely have to spend for him, but these are the exact type of match-ups he can post a massive score in.

Secondary Buy

Cody Bellinger, Los Angeles Dodgers

Potential Bid: $5.00

Break-Even Point: 34th

We’ll head to LA for my next buy, where Bellinger appears a bit too far down in the pre-ranking for me. The Dodgers were a top spot last night, and that continues into Friday with Vlad Gutierrez on the mound. Gutierrez can skate by vs right-handed batters, but has literally no ability to get lefties out consistently. On top of an egregious 14% strikeout rate, he allows a .355 wOBA and .239 ISO in the split. Much was made about Belly’s awful spring training, but he remained optimistic throughout the process and hasn’t looked that bad at the plate. He homered a few days ago and had multiple singles last night, showing signs of life at the plate. Given his spot in the order it will be easy to overlook him, but this lineup is so good that’s it’s going to be incredibly often that guys are on base in front of him. His biggest issue has been strikeouts, so it’s a major boost that Gutierrez really shouldn’t have him swinging and missing. This game has the second-highest O/U on the slate and I think he is the top value buy on Friday.
