MLB Jock MKT Plays (4/29/22)

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.

4/29/22 Top Buy

Tyler O’Neill, St. Louis Cardinals

Potential Bid: $4.75

Break-Even Point: 36th

If you’re new to Jock MKT, you may be struggling to read what’s listed below the O’Neill recommendation. Essentially, I’m willing to spend up to $4.75 per share for him. He needs to finish 36th 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 O’Neill at $4.75 and he finishes 36th in this field, I make my $4.75 back. If he finishes 1st, I win $25 (profit $20.25). If he finishes last, I win $1 (lose $3.75). It’s that simple.

Outside of Coors Field and the Yankees there aren’t a ton of bigger team totals tonight, which has me interested in the value with the St. Louis Cardinals. Vegas has shown them a ton of love since opening, they’ve moved from -170 to -190 favorites and their team total is up almost half a run. That is mostly due to the match-up with Madison Bumgarner who has really struggled keeping the ball in the yard the last few seasons. He’s allowing a near .200 ISO and over 40% hard-hits and ground balls to right-handed batters since joining the Diamondbacks — which will shift our focus on the Cardinals to the power hitters. O’Neill fits that mold with a massive .302 ISO vs southpaws over that span. Bum throws a lot of cutters, which O’Neill tattoos — as well as his righty teammates like Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado. St. Louis is very high up my overall offensive board tonight, especially when you factor in how bad the bullpen behind Bumgarner is.

Secondary Buy

Wander Franco, Tampa Bay Rays

Potential Bid: $4.50

Break-Even Point: 38th

Franco is a fantastic value on Friday night as he is in the midst of fully solidifying himself as one of the games best hitters. He’s top-25 this season in barrels per plate appearance, and top-35 (8.9) in average exit velocity (91mph) as well. Part of his success is that he’s cut way down on his ground ball rate — in 2021 he hit more ground balls than anything else with a 50% GB% — that number has drastically dropped this season to 37%. With the drop in ground balls, his line drives are way up and he’s hitting the ball harder too. That’s good news against Dylan Bundy, who has always allowed above-average power to both sides of the plate. Tampa, like a lot of teams, doesn’t have a big team total tonight but this is a great price range for one of the best hitters in baseball in a plus match-up.
