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.

Terance Mann, SG, Los Angeles Clippers
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 Mann recommendation. Essentially, I’m willing to spend up to $5.00 per share for him. 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 Mann at $5.00 and he finishes 34th in this field, I make my $5.00 back. If he finishes 1st, I win $25 (profit $20.00). If he finishes last, I win $1 (lose $5.00). It’s that simple.
Los Angeles news broke on Monday afternoon with Reggie Jackson and Marcus Morris getting ruled out — Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and Norm Powell are already out. When running the Clippers numbers sans Jackson, you’ll see that not only does Mann receive a bump in usage rate, but he sees a massive uptick in his assist rate as well. Morris is typically a high-usage player, so taking him off the floor in addition to Jackson should allow Mann to smash through the one fantasy point per minute mark we typically target in this article. Mann is ranked 41st in Jock MKT’s pre-ranking for tonight’s slate. This ranking is indicative of where he should be projected with Jackson and Morris on the floor — so it’s clear we can find value here. Our Projections Portal has Mann inside the top-35 projected players overall on Monday night, with a 40+ point ceiling projection as well. I think $5.00 is a safe point to secure a profit with Mann, and if his shot is falling, there is upside for a top-30 performance.
