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.

Brandon Lowe, Tampa Bay Rays
Projected Rank: 16th
Example: If I buy 1 share of Smith at $9.00 and he finishes 14th in this field, I make my $9.00 back. If he finishes 1st, I win $25 (profit $16.00). If he finishes last, I win $1 (lose $8.00). It’s that simple.

Tampa Bay’s team total has jumped a bit since open, and now sits at a respectable 4.5 runs against Spenser Watkins. Watkins typically struggles much more with right-handed batters than lefties, but there is reason to buy into Lowe in this spot. For starters, he clearly has some of the best numbers on the team against righty pitching including a 26% line-drive rate and 42% hard-hits. Furthermore, Watkins is a pitcher that relies heavily on his cutter to get outs. This season, he’s throwing his cutter almost 40% of the time to both sides of the plate and it’s far and away his most-used pitch. Lowe has some of the best numbers in baseball against cutters — since the start of 2019 we are looking at a .499 wOBA and .538 ISO in the split. I think he has big-time power upside in this spot as long as the game is good from a weather standpoint.
