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.

Wander Franco, Tampa Bay Rays
Projected Rank: 9th
Example: If I buy 1 share of Franco at $7.00 and he finishes 22nd in this field, I make my $7.00 back. If he finishes 1st, I win $25 (profit $18.00). If he finishes last, I win $1 (lose $6.00). It’s that simple.

I love this spot on the 4th for the Rays who match up with Austin Davis. Davis has flashed some strikeout ability this season, but the underlying metrics look really scary including a 5.26 xFIP and almost 12% walks! He’s been especially bad against right-handed hitters allowing a .343 wOBA compared to just a .191 mark against lefties. Franco has some of the better numbers on the Rays against left-handed pitchers including a 24% line-drive rate. He also has the highest wOBA on the team against fastballs — a pitch that Davis throws over 40% of the time. Tampa opened up with a 5 run team total and I want some exposure to their lineup today, starting with Franco.
