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.

3/21/22 Top Buy
Marvin Bagley, PF, Detroit Pistons
Highest Potential Bid: $3.50
Break-Even Point: 47th
If you’re new to Jock MKT, you may be struggling to read what’s listed below the Bagley recommendation. Essentially, I’m willing to spend up to $3.50 per share for him. He needs to finish 47th 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 Bagley at $3.50 and he finishes 47th in this field, I make my $3.50 back. If he finishes 1st, I win $25 (profit $21.50). If he finishes last, I win $1 (lose $2.50). It’s that simple.
Bagley is someone I’ve been excited to see get an increased role, but the results have been up-and-down recently for him. Tonight is a good night for him to showcase his skills, against the Portland Trailblazers. Portland’s defense has been crumbling, and they’re dead last in the NBA in defensive rating over the last 10 games. Over that span, they’re also bottom-seven in opponent points in the paint. Even with Isaiah Stewart back, over the last six games Bagley is the clear leader on the Pistons in paint touches per game.
Bagley ranks 46th in Jock MKT’s pre-ranking for tonight, but I think his ceiling is much closer to a top-35 spot on this slate. Jerami Grant remains out for Detroit, and Bagley sees over a 3% usage spike with him off the floor. Couple that with the top match-up against the Blazers and I think there’s a strong chance for profit with him on Monday night.
