NBA Jock MKT Play (3/11/22)

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.

3/11/22 Top Buy

Cade Cunningham, PG, Detroit Pistons

Highest Potential Bid: $7.00

Break-Even Point: 22nd

If you’re new to Jock MKT, you may be struggling to read what’s listed below the Cunningham recommendation. Essentially, I’m willing to spend up to $7.00 per share for him. He needs to finish 22nd 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 Cunningham 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). If he finishes last, I win $1 (lose $6.00). It’s that simple.

We are coming off a strong hit last night with Kevon Looney, and I’m focused on the budding star in Cunningham for Friday night. Cunningham has been hitting his stride over the last month, and has now entrenched his name in the Rookie of the Year race with Evan Mobley. Over his last five contests, he’s averaging 22 points, 8 boards and 5 assists while shooting over 45% from the field. He’s also leading the team in usage rate in their current projected starting lineup at 29%. That usage rate has transferred over to aggressiveness with the basketball as well — as he ranks 6th in the NBA in drives per game (19) since February 20th.

Obviously he’s been on a tear offensively, but another reason I love him as a buy tonight is the match-up with the Boston Celtics. Boston has been one of the best defensive teams in basketball down the stretch of the season, which presents us an opportunity to get a high-upside player for less than he is projected to sell. I have my cut-off at $7.00, but there’s a good chance he sits in the $6.00 range due to this perceived tough match-up. He’s played Boston twice already this season, with 37 and 38 fantasy points in those games. Not crazy ceiling games by any means, but there is evidence he can play well in this spot and that was before he really got rolling. His true ceiling is much higher than a $7.00 valuation and if he has a good night shooting he could be one of the most profitable players on Friday night.
