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.

6/7/22 Top Buy
Kyle Schwarber, Philadelphia Phillies
Potential Bid: $5.50
Break-Even Point: 31st
If you’re new to Jock MKT, you may be struggling to read what’s listed below the Schwarber recommendation. Essentially, I’m willing to spend up to $5.50 per share for him. He needs to finish 31st 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 Kirk at $5.50 and he finishes 31st in this field, I make my $5.50 back. If he finishes 1st, I win $25 (profit $19.50). If he finishes last, I win $1 (lose $4.50). It’s that simple.

Philly doesn’t have a huge team total tonight, but I cant overlook the recent form of Kyle Schwarber. He couldn’t stop homering last week, and has one of the best batted ball profiles in all of baseball over the last seven days — 54% hard-hits and 85% fly-balls. He also has the second-best numbers vs right-handed pitching in this lineup behind only Bryce Harper. We have a very small sample-size of Jason Alexander at the big-league level, but one thing is certain and that’s that Schwarber has arguably the highest-ceiling on tonight’s slate.
Victor Caratini, Milwaukee Brewers
Potential Bid: $3.00
Break-Even Point: 52nd
Caratini is the epitome of value on Tuesday night, coming in projected as one of the cheapest players in the entire IPO. He actually has a good match-up tonight against Ranger Suarez, who has not been as good this season for the Phillies. He has struggled with control and power to righties, while Caratini actually has some of the better numbers vs lefties in this lineup. Over the last two seasons, his .349 wOBA and .207 ISO are some of the best marks on this team, and he matches up well vs Suarez. Suarez throws mostly sinkers to both sides of the plate, a pitch Caratini owns a near .400 wOBA against. If you’re looking for potential high return for a cheap price, look no further than the bottom of the Brewers lineup on Tuesday.
