MLB Jock MKT Plays (4/17/22)

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.

4/17/22 Top Buy

Aaron Judge, New York Yankees

Potential Bid: $8.50

Break-Even Point: 16th

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 $8.50 per share for him. He needs to finish 16th 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 Walsh at $8.50 and he finishes 16th in this field, I make my $8.50 back. If he finishes 1st, I win $25 (profit $16.50). If he finishes last, I win $1 (lose $7.50). It’s that simple.

I’ve written Judge up a few times recently and am going back to the well today against Bruce Zimmermann and the Orioles bullpen. Judge has been getting extremely unlucky so far this season, and I’m not worried about his lack of production thus far. All the advanced numbers are there, he’s hitting the ball hard, and most of them are just going right at people. That will eventually correct and we can hopefully get ahead of the field by using him today. He is the type of player that can really go on a roll when things fall into place, and he absolutely dominates in this ballpark. I wrote earlier this week that he has 14 homers in Camden Yards — the most of any park outside of Yankee Stadium. He typically feasts on bad pitchers, and that’s exactly what Zimmermann is.

Secondary Buy

Francisco Lindor, New York Mets

Potential Bid: $5.00

Break-Even Point: 34th

Lindor has started off 2022 much better than 2021, posting a .459 wOBA and 20% walk rate through two weeks of action. He and his Mets teammates are in a great spot today against Humberto Castellanos. Castellanos has generated just 15% strikeouts in his MLB career, and been completely victimized by left-handed hitters. Over a 100 plate appearance sample size, he’s allowed a massive .358 wOBA and .244 ISO in the split. Lindor matches up well vs Casty’s pitch mix as well, and the Mets have one of the more solid team totals on the board today at 4.5 runs. Arizona has a pretty terrible bullpen behind Castellanos, so this could be a spot to load up on the Mets who are all undervalued in the Jock MKT pre-ranking.
