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.

7/6/22 Top Play
Kyle Schwarber, Philadelphia Phillies
Projected Rank: 11th
Example: If I buy 1 share of Stanton 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.

Schwarber is one of the streakiest hitters in baseball, and he’s clearly locked in after hitting two homeruns on Tuesday night. His batted ball data backs that claim up, with over 50% fly-balls and hard-hits over the last 14 days. He also has a great match-up tonight against Josiah Gray, who struggles with left-handed hitters. Gray has been better as of late for the Nationals, but is still allowing a .379 wOBA and .276 ISO in the split this season. He throws mostly fastballs, a pitch that Schwarber owns a .368 ISO against over the last few seasons. Philly has a solid 5 run team total on Wednesday night, making Schwarber one of my favorite choices for profit.
Paul Goldschmidt, St. Louis Cardinals
Projected Rank: 35th
Goldy has a tough on-paper match-up tonight against Max Fried, but he has entered into match-up proof territory this season. He’s always crushed left-handed pitching, but he actually leads baseball in wOBA vs LHP this season while ranking third-overall in ISO as well. This is a new form of Goldy that we haven’t seen since his Arizona days, and it’s likely we get him at a nice discount due to the perceived tough match-up.
