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.

6/8/22 Top Buy
Aaron Judge, New York Yankees
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 Judge 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 Judge 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.

Anyone that reads my content knows I play Judge more than anyone, but it’s been a clear mistake to not just buy shares of him every night this season. He’s having the best season possible, and looks like the best version of him we’ve ever seen. He gets another strong match-up tonight against Chris Archer. Archer started out okay for the Twins, but that early success has faded and he has been brutalized by right-handed batters this season. This is obviously great news for Judge, who has the bets numbers and most power vs both sides of the plate in this lineup. He also crushes sliders, a pitch that Archer is using almost 60% of the time this season. We pretty much need to continue to ride Judge while he’s on this tear, and I won’t be shocked if he homers again on Wednesday.
Steven Kwan, Cleveland Guardians
Potential Bid: $3.70
Break-Even Point: 45th
Kwan has cooled off from his torrid start to the season, but there is reason to jump back on the train tonight against Dane Dunning. If you’re going to attack Dane Dunning, it has to be with left-handed batters as he allows just a .284 wOBA to righties. He is much worse vs lefties, and Kwan has far and away the highest contact rate in this Cleveland lineup. He also matches up well with Dunning’s pitch mix, with him throwing a ton of sinkers. Since joining the big league club, Kwan owns a .462 wOBA and a .200 ISO vs sinkers — that .200 ISO is important since he typically is not a power hitter. Overall, it’s a great individual spot for Kwan and it’s hard for him to completely bottom out since he is so good at getting on base.
