MLB Jock MKT Plays (4/18/22)

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.

4/18/22 Top Buy

Justin Turner, Los Angeles Dodgers

Potential Bid: $6.00

Break-Even Point: 28th

If you’re new to Jock MKT, you may be struggling to read what’s listed below the Turner recommendation. Essentially, I’m willing to spend up to $6.00 per share for him. He needs to finish 28th 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 $6.00 and he finishes 28th in this field, I make my $6.00 back. If he finishes 1st, I win $25 (profit $19.00). If he finishes last, I win $1 (lose $5.00). It’s that simple.

It’s no shock that the Dodgers once again have one of the highest team totals on the board, set at five runs. Turner comes in too low in the pre-ranking for a member of this lineup, and could be the best potential value buy on the slate at this price tag. Huascar Ynoa is a promising young pitcher for the Braves, but he struggles with right-handed batters and allows a near 45% hard contact rate in the split. Turner doesn’t have the same power he does vs righties that he does vs lefties, but he still has respectable offensive numbers across the board. He also gets the huge bonus of hitting in the heart of the best lineup in baseball, with plenty of RBI opportunities available most nights. Ynoa’s saving grace is getting ground balls, and Turner should be able to counter that with his 41% fly-ball rate. It’s always a strong move to buy into the Dodgers offense and I will take the discount with Turner tonight.

Secondary Buy

Sheldon Neuse, Oakland Athletics

Potential Bid: $4.50

Break-Even Point: 38th

Neuse and the A’s are one of the top stacks tonight, and are all pretty low in the pre-ranking system. I can honestly say I haven’t been on the A’s one day this season, but their offense has actually been surprisingly good. They own one of the highest implied team totals on the board today against Spenser Watkins and a bad Orioles bullpen. Watkins has been one of the worst pitchers in baseball in recent seasons vs right-handed batters, allowing over a .400 wOBA and .300 ISO in the split. Despite also being right-handed, Neuse has the top numbers in this lineup vs RHP since the start of last season. Those numbers are backed up by a solid batted ball profile, and 24% line drives as well. Overall, I really like this spot for Oakland and I think buying into shares of multiple A’s players is a solid strategy on Monday night.
