NBA Jock MKT Play (3/9/22)

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.

3/9/22 Top Buy

CJ McCollum, SG, New Orleans Pelicans

Highest Potential Bid: $12.00

Break-Even Point: 8th

If you’re new to Jock MKT, you may be struggling to read what’s listed below the McCollum recommendation. Essentially, I’m willing to spend up to $12 per share for McCollum. He needs to finish 8th 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 $12 and he finishes 8th in this field, I make my $12 back. If he finishes 1st, I win $25 (profit $13). If he finishes last, I win $1 (lose $11). It’s that simple.

This is a bit higher number than I would typically write up, but we can’t overlook this spot for McCollum with Brandon Ingram already ruled out for tonight’s game. He’s been fantastic offensively for the Pels since joining the team, and is even better with Ingram off the floor. Since the start of his Pelicans tenure, he’s averaging 1.34 fantasy points per minute with a 28% usage rate. These numbers skyrocket to a 33% usage rate with 1.54 fantasy points per minute by taking Ingram off the floor. He’s also much more aggressive with the ball in his hands — and is coming off a game last night in which he took 21 shot attempts.

Orlando has been vulnerable to good guard play all season, and we don’t have to worry about the back-to-back as McCollum didn’t see the floor in the fourth quarter last night due to a blowout. McCollum is ranked 8th in the Jock MKT pre-rankings, despite having one of the highest ceilings on the slate with Ingram out.
