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.

6/22/22 Early Buy
Byron Buxton, Minnesota Twins
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 Buxton 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 Buxton 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.

Buxton has let me down the last few nights but we can go right back to the well against Zach Plesac. Plesac has struggled for the majority of the season, and while he is typically good against right-handed batters…Buxton has the best numbers on this team against right-handed pitching. Minnesota’s team total is up half a run since opening and now sits at 5.5 runs…clearly Vegas is expecting some offensive fireworks here. Plesac throws a ton of sliders to righties, which makes it a positive individual match-up for Buxton as well. Since 2020, he owns a .423 wOBA against sliders. I think he has a legit shot at top-overall bat on the Thursday early slate of games.
Late Market Buy
Giancarlo Stanton, New York Yankees
Potential Bid: $6.34
Break-Even Point: 26th
Framber Valdez is a good pitcher, but we can’t ignore Stanton anytime he faces off with a left-handed pitcher. Over the last two seasons, we are looking at a .363 wOBA and a .222 ISO vs southpaws — and those numbers can be considered light in comparison to what we’ve seen over the course of his career. Valdez relies heavily on his sinker throwing it almost 50% of the time. Stanton has posted video game numbers against sinkers over the last few seasons including a massive .571 ISO. We need ceiling when spending up in this range on a player, and Stanton certainly brings that to the table.
