MLB Jock MKT Plays (6/4/22)

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.

6/4/22 Top Buy

Joey Votto, Cincinnati Reds

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 Votto 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 Votto 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.

Votto and the Reds came through for me on Friday, and I’m going right back to the well today against Erick Fedde. Fedde has struggled to get left-handed bats out, allowing a .355 wOBA in the split since the start of 2021. We know that Votto is the best left-handed hitter in this lineup, but he has shown he still has power with multiple homeruns this week as well. He also crushes Fedde’s pitch mix. He has been throwing more cutters this season — over 40% of the time to lefties. Votto has the best numbers on this roster against cutters, including a .513 wOBA over the last three seasons. I think he can continue to turn back the clock as long as he is hitting the ball hard, and he’s my favorite buy on Saturday.

Late Market Buy

Kyle Schwarber, Philadelphia Phillies

Potential Bid: $6.00

Break-Even Point: 28th

This is a fantastic spot for Schwarber and the left-handed Phillies up against Michael Lorenzen. Lorenzen has been terrible against left-handed batters this season allowing a .380 wOBA and .246 ISO in the split. We know that Schwarber has slate-breaking power, but he’s also been dialed in at the plate. Over the last seven days — he owns a 44% hard-hit rate and over a 60% fly-ball rate. He matches up well with Lorenzen’s pitch mix, and he has strong case for top-overall bat in the late market tonight.
