Jock MKT is fun new way to play 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 the night.

Kevon Looney, C, Golden State Warriors
Highest Potential Bid: $5.50
Break-Even Point: 14th
If you’re new to Jock MKT, you may be struggling to read what’s listed below the Looney recommendation. Essentially, I’m willing to spend up to $5.50 per share for McCollum. He needs to finish 14th 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 $5.50 and he finishes 14th in this field, I make my $5.50 back. If he finishes 1st, I win $25 (profit $19.50). If he finishes last, I win $1 (lose $4.50). It’s that simple.
We have a small two game slate on tap foe Thursday night, which has me looking at a lower-end player like Looney rather than the high-ceiling stud that I prefer to target on larger slates. Despite not being a huge name, Looney comes in as a top-15 projected player tonight per our Projections Portal with a solid ceiling as well. Looney has actually been a point per minute producer this season, and has been regularly churning out mid-20’s in minutes in the absence of Draymond Green. Looney is ranked 15th in Jock MKT’s pre-ranking, despite being projected to finish higher than that in our Portal. Most people are going to spend big on the big names like Jokic and Embiid tonight — and rightfully so seeing as they are the far and away leaders in projected ceiling. That being said, if we can grab Looney at a figure of $5 or $5.50, I would feel very confident in him providing a profit so long as he sees his regular minutes.
