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.

6/25/22 Early Buy
Jose Abreu, Chicago White Sox
Potential Bid: $6.50
Break-Even Point: 25th
If you’re new to Jock MKT, you may be struggling to read what’s listed below the Abreu recommendation. Essentially, I’m willing to spend up to $6.50 per share for him. He needs to finish 25th 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 Abreu at $6.50 and he finishes 25th in this field, I make my $6.50 back. If he finishes 1st, I win $25 (profit $18.50). If he finishes last, I win $1 (lose $5.50). It’s that simple.

I wrote up Abreu on Friday, and I’m going right back to him on Saturday against Spenser Watkins. Chicago owns a team total over 5 runs as it currently stands, and I think this is a great spot for Abreu and their offense to get going. Watkins has been horrific against right-handed pitching this season and will likely see seven or eight of them in the lineup today. Abreu has had average numbers this season, but his 46% hard-hit rate vs RHP is the second-highest mark on the team. He also crushes cutters to the tune of a .477 wOBA and .333 ISO — a pitch Watkins throws almost 40% of the time.
Late Market Buy
Darin Ruf, San Francisco Giants
Potential Bid: $4.88
Break-Even Point: 35th
This is a great spot for the Giants tonight against Mike Minor and the Reds. Minor has been crushed by right-handed pitching this season, allowing a .404 wOBA and .333 ISO while striking them out at just a 18% clip. San Fran has a few guys with major power vs left-handed pitching, one of which being Darin Ruf. This season, he sports a .231 ISO in the split along with 48% hard-contact. He also has above-average advanced numbers against fastballs, a pitch Minor throws almost 60% of the time. Overall, you know that I love to target power hitters for the ceiling and Ruf has double-dong upside on Saturday.
