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.

4/26/22 Top Buy
Lourdes Gurriel Jr, Toronto Blue Jays
Potential Bid: $4.50
Break-Even Point: 38th
If you’re new to Jock MKT, you may be struggling to read what’s listed below the Gurriel recommendation. Essentially, I’m willing to spend up to $4.50 per share for him. He needs to finish 38th 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 Gurriel at $4.50 and he finishes 22nd in this field, I make my $4.50 back. If he finishes 1st, I win $25 (profit $20.50). If he finishes last, I win $1 (lose $3.50). It’s that simple.

I nailed Yordan Alvarez as my top play yesterday, and today we are going to bargain hunting with Lourdes Gurriel Jr. Gurriel has been locked in at the plate this season, sporting a top-25 average exit velocity in all of baseball (92 mph). He’s always had the ability to hit the ball hard, and that is a big boost against Nick Pivetta who allows a 42% hard-hit rate to right-handed batters. He also throws primarily fastballs — a pitch that Gurriel owns a 46% hard-hit rate against. Toronto has one of the bigger team totals on the board tonight and Gurriel represents a way to get some lineup exposure for a cheap price. He doesn’t have the raw power that Vlad Jr does, but he hits in the heart of the order and will likely have one of the best looks at RBI opportunities on Tuesday night.
Gavin Lux, Los Angeles Dodgers
Potential Bid: $4.00
Break-Even Point: 42nd
Lux continues to be a strong buy-low candidate moving forward. He managed one hit last night, but there is reason to believe that a hot streak could be coming for the Dodgers youngster. He’s been extremely unlucky to begin the season, and all of the advanced metrics show that positive regression should be headed his way, He’s hitting the ball hard with a 92 mph average exit velocity, and a 51% hard-hit percentage. He also owns a .347 wOBA compared to a .453 xwOBA. Los Angeles has arguably the top overall match-up on Tuesday night against Zach Davies, who is flat-out terrible to both sides of the plate. Most people don’t look for shares of Lux due to his spot in the order, but in a lineup as good as the Dodgers batting down in the order isn’t as big of a deal. They have a huge 5.7 implied team total tonight, and securing some cheap, high-upside shares makes a ton of sense.
