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.

7/1/22 Top Play
Aaron Judge, New York Yankees
Projected Rank: 8th
Example: If I buy 1 share of Judge at $10.00 and he finishes 12th in this field, I make my $10.00. If he finishes 1st, I win $25 (profit $15.00). If he finishes last, I win $1 (lose $9.00). It’s that simple.

Judge was a top target for me on Friday, but fell victim to some untimely rain in Cleveland and will now be apart of a double-header on Saturday. Aaron Civale is projected for pitch for the Guardians in the second game tonight, which is an elite match-up for Judge and the other right-handed Yankees. Civale has been bad all around in 2022, but especially to right-handed batters. In the split, he’s allowing a .388 wOBA and .226 ISO. Judge obviously has the best numbers on the team against righty pitching, but he matches up well against his pitch mix also. Civale’s most-used pitch is his curveball — over the last few seasons we are looking at a .555 expected wOBA and a .243 ISO against the pitch for Judge. We know he has arguably the highest ceiling in baseball right now making him the top buy on Saturday.
Bobby Witt Jr, Kansas City Royals
Projected Rank: 13th
Kansas City has a solid 4.5 implied team total on Saturday afternoon, and I really like the spot against Beau Brieske. He has been horrific against right-handed batters this season, allowing a .363 wOBA and .276 ISO in the split compared to .262 and .110 marks against lefties. That could spell trouble against the Royals, as most of their strong hitters are from the right side of the plate. That includes Witt himself, whose .208 ISO is the top mark on this team among qualified hitters. Brieske throws a ton of fastballs — almost 50% of the time — which happens to be one of Witt’s best pitches as well. His .462 expected wOBA paces the team, and it comes with a 57% hard-hit rate as well.
