MLB Jock MKT Plays (4/23/22)

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.

4/23/22 Top Buy

Matt Olson, Atlanta Braves

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 Olson 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 Olson 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.

Atlanta has one of the bigger team totals tonight at 4.6 runs, and the left-handed batters are what we want to target. Elieser Hernandez has been a flat-out terrible pitcher in the split over the last two seasons allowing a .370 wOBA, .305 ISO and 41% hard-contact rate. Olson hasn’t really flashed his power stroke yet, but he’s clearly been seeing the ball well. Through three weeks of play he’s posted an OPS of 1.130, and his average exit velocity is above 93 mph which would be a career-high. The power will come with Olson, especially in Truist park which plays heavily towards left-handed power hitters — but what’s most important is he’s seeing the ball well. Hernandez is also a heavy fastball pitcher — which is good news for Olson, who owns a monster .404 wOBA vs the pitch. This screams break-out spot, and I would be looking to buy shares of multiple left-handed hitters in this lineup on Saturday night.

Secondary Buy

Julio Rodriguez, Seattle Mariners

Potential Bid: $5.00

Break-Even Point: 34th

Rodriguez has been victimized by an egregious strike zone to begin the season. I’m not sure what the reason is, or if it’s that he’s so young, but he just has no respect from the umpires and has been rung up on SEVERAL pitches out of the zone. Despite that, Rodriguez has battled and broke through with a double last night. Hitting the ball hard has not been an issue, with a 91.5 average exit velocity and 60% hard-hit rate, it’s pretty much solely been the size of his zone relative to other batters. I’m going to keep buying in while he is cheap, and he draws another strong match-up tonight against Kris Bubic. Bubic has one of the three worst SIERA marks on this slate since the start of 2020 at 4.80. He allows above-average hard-hits and this is a fantastic buy-low spot for J-Rod and his teammates.
