MLB Jock MKT Plays (4/20/22)

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.

4/20/22 Top Buy

Carlos Correa, Minnesota Twins

Potential Bid: $5.00

Break-Even Point: 34th

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 $5.00 per share for him. He needs to finish 34th 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 Correa at $5.00 and he finishes 34th in this field, I make my $5.00 back. If he finishes 1st, I win $25 (profit $20.00). If he finishes last, I win $1 (lose $4.00). It’s that simple.

Avoiding the stud-level players and looking for potential value has worked best for me on the platform to begin the season, and that’s what I’m doing today with Carlos Correa. Statistically, Correa has started out this season slow but the advanced metrics tell us to be patient. Despite the lack of numbers, he’s top-20 in all of baseball in average exit velocity (93) and has what would be a career-high hard-hit percentage as well (58%). A lot of his hits have simply gone at defensive players or been caught, that happens in baseball but the contact with the ball is most important. He’s clearly seeing the ball well and I’m going to continue to buy him until his luck turns around. He gets a strong match-up with Daniel Lynch tonight. Lynch has struggled mightily with right-handed batters allowing a .392 wOBA and .222 ISO over the last two seasons. I really like this game as it opened up with a seven run total that has since jumped to nine. Correa and his right-handed teammates are top targets on Wednesday night.

Secondary Buy

Andrew Benintendi, Kansas City Royals

Potential Bid: $4.50

Break-Even Point: 38th

Sticking in the same game, we can find value with the Kansas City Royals against Chris Paddack as well. Paddack was once a promising young arm for the Padres but things have fallen apart for him in recent seasons. He’s dropped below a 20% strikeout rate since the start of 2021, and hasn’t ever been able to consistently get out left-handed batters. Part of his struggles this season has been a velocity drop, when he came up with the Padres he was sitting mid-90’s with his fastball and it’s down to an average of 92 this season. Benintendi is the Royals best left-handed batter, and I think there’s a strong chance we see a lot of runs in this game tonight.
