Jock MKT is one of the most interesting forms of DFS. In this article, I’ll break down what Jock MKT is and my favorite NBA buy 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 this week.

Seth Curry, SG, Brooklyn Nets
Highest Potential Bid: $5.00
Break-Even Point: 34
If you’re new to Jock MKT, you may be struggling to read what’s listed below the Curry recommendation. Essentially, I’m willing to spend up to $5 per share for Curry. He needs to finish 34th 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 Curry at $5 and he finishes 34th in this field, I make my $5 back. If he finishes 1st, I win $25 (profit $20). If he finishes last, I win $1 (lose $4). It’s that simple.
Curry’s seen plenty of ups and downs throughout the 2021 season. He’s averaging 15.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 4.0 assists in 34.4 minutes per game. He’s been extremely inconsistent in recent games, flashing a single-digit floor only a few contests ago.
The key here is that Curry was recently traded to the Brooklyn Nets, and he’s taking on a different role than he played for the Philadelphia 76ers. In his first game for the Nets, Curry posted 23 points with 7 rebounds and 5 assists, recording 37.75 fantasy points. He saw 18 shots in that game, which was his second-highest total on the season.
Curry is acting as the focal point of the Brooklyn offense. Kyrie Irving isn’t allowed to play, Kevin Durant is injured, and James Harden was involved in the Philadelphia trade. Curry will continue to be a focal point of the Brooklyn offense, giving him significantly more upside than his projections suggest.
He ranks 50th in Jock MKT’s pre-rank for tonight’s slate, and he’s projected for 28.83 fantasy points. Curry isn’t a player that truly comes with triple-double upside, but he can contribute in multiple categories. He also boasts tremendous scoring upside when his shot is falling. Although the matchup isn’t elite against the New York Knicks, Curry is a great option on this slate.
