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.

6/30/22 Top Buy
Joey Votto, Cincinnati Reds
Potential Bid: $7.25
Break-Even Point: 21st
If you’re new to Jock MKT, you may be struggling to read what’s listed below the Votto recommendation. Essentially, I’m willing to spend up to $7.25 per share for him. He needs to finish 21st 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 Votto at $7.25 and he finishes 21st in this field, I make my $7.25 back. If he finishes 1st, I win $25 (profit $17.75). If he finishes last, I win $1 (lose $6.25). It’s that simple.

Cincinnati has been one of the worst offenses in baseball this season, so it’s noteworthy that they own a near 5 run implied team total on Thursday evening. It’s hot once again in Chicago, with winds blowing out to center which will be a major bump to these batters in Wrigley Field. Kyle Hendricks has been a mainstay for the Cubs over the past few seasons…but he has really struggled with lefties in 2022. He’s allowing over a .380 wOBA and .280 ISO in the split while striking them out just 18% of the time. Votto has essentially been the only good Reds hitter from the left-side this season, and he has a strong history against Hendricks. He has over a 50 PA sample-size, resulting in a .541 expected wOBA and five homeruns. He also owns a 44% hard-hit rate against changeups, a pitch that Hendricks throws over 40% of the time.
Mike Moustakas, Cincinnati Reds
Potential Bid: $2.50
Break-Even Point: 58th
As you can tell, I’m clearly interested in the Reds tonight. Going off what I wrote in the Votto blurb, Mike Moustakas is also left-handed. Moustakas has never lived up to his pre-Cincinnati form during his time for the Reds, but there is still some reason for optimism. Despite the lackluster surface numbers, some of this can be attributed to bad luck. His expected wOBA is significantly higher than his actual wOBA and he’s still hitting the ball in the air. More importantly, he is basically the best changeup hitter on the Reds roster — owning a .383 wOBA and .341 ISO against the pitch. Winds blowing out is an obvious boost to a fly-ball hitter, and he does still have power even at this later stage in his career.
