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.

Lonnie Walker, SG, San Antonio Spurs
Highest Potential Bid: $5.00
Break-Even Point: 34th
If you’re new to Jock MKT, you may be struggling to read what’s listed below the Walker recommendation. Essentially, I’m willing to spend up to $5.00 per share for him. He needs to finish 34nd 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 Walker at $5.00 and he finishes 34nd in this field, I make my $5.00 back. If he finishes 1st, I win $25 (profit $20). If he finishes last, I win $1 (lose $5.00). It’s that simple.
We got massive news on Saturday afternoon, as the Spurs and Gregg Popovich are resting most of their key players tonight. All of Dejounte Murray, Keldon Johsnon and Jakob Poeltl are out for tonight’s game. The last time this happened, we didn’t see Walker step into the starting lineup, but we know his minutes and offensive role as a hole is going to take a big leap. In a 70 minute sample with them off the floor this season, Walker is averaging close to 1.3 fantasy points per minute and leading the team in usage rate. Walker is ranked 37th in Jock MKT’s pre-rank for Saturday night, but I think he has a higher ceiling than that spot with these guys ruled out. If he’s scoring the basketball, he could be in line for 40+ fantasy points tonight and I think most people will be looking at Spurs that are in the starting lineup.
