NBA Jock MKT Play (3/8/22)

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.

3/8/22 Top Buy

Cam Payne, PG, Phoenix Suns

Highest Potential Bid: $8.00

Break-Even Point: 18

If you’re new to Jock MKT, you may be struggling to read what’s listed below the Payne recommendation. Essentially, I’m willing to spend up to $8 per share for Payne. He needs to finish 18th 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 $8 and he finishes 18th in this field, I make my $8 back. If he finishes 1st, I win $25 (profit $17). If he finishes last, I win $1 (lose $7). It’s that simple.

Payne has been one of the best players in fantasy basketball since he returned from injury, which isn’t exactly a statement I though I’d be making before the season. Injuries have taken their toll on the Phoenix Suns, and both Devin Booker and Chris Paul remain out for tonight’s game. For the season, Payne is averaging around one fantasy point per minute in an average of 21 minutes per game. However, taking Paul and Booker off the floor, he averages over 1.15 fantasy points per minute and is averaging 34 minutes per game over his last two contests — obviously a massive positive difference. Not only are the minutes much more secure, but he is much more aggressive with the ball in his hands as well. For the season, Payne is averaging 10 drives per game — but since February 28th that number spikes to 15.7 per game which is top-15 in the league over that span. We can see the aggressiveness come through in his shot attempts as well, with 16 and 19 field goal attempts in his last two games.

Payne comes in ranked 17th in Jock MKT’s pre-rank for tonight’s slate, and he’s projected for 34.05 fantasy points. He doesn’t come with the name-brand value of some similarly ranked players, but I think he has one of the highest ceiling’s on Tuesday night in a match-up with the Orlando Magic.
