NBA Jock MKT Play (4/3/22)

Jock MKT is fun new way to play DFS. In this article, I’ll break down what Jock MKT is and my favorite NBA buys 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.

4/3/22 Top Buy

Javale McGee, Phoenix Suns

Potential Bid: $6.50

Break-Even Point: 25th

If you’re new to Jock MKT, you may be struggling to read what’s listed below the McGee recommendation. Essentially, I’m willing to spend up to $6.50 per share for him. He needs to finish 25th 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 McGee at $6.50 and he finishes 25th in this field, I make my $6.50 back. If he finishes 1st, I win $25 (profit $18.50). If he finishes last, I win $1 (lose $5.50). It’s that simple.

McGee doesn’t fit the mold of the top buys I usually target in this article, but he is in a great spot on Sunday against the Thunder. Oklahoma City is clearly tanking to end the season, and the Suns have finally decided to rest their stars after locking up the number one seed in the Western Conference. With the expected Suns players out, McGee is second on the team with a 1.35 fantasy point per minute rate. OKC is allowing the most rebounds per game to opponents this season, and McGee does have a ceiling when given the minutes. Most will be siding with Chris Paul here as the lone stud left playing for the Suns, but McGee is guaranteed to at least split C minutes against a team that cannot contain guys on the glass. It’s very likely you get McGee cheaper than this, which can provide some solid profits should he score relative to his projection.

Mid-Tier Buy

Kyle Lowry, Miami Heat

Potential Bid: $3.50

Break-Even Point: 47th

Lowry hasn’t been the same fantasy player for Miami he was in Toronto, but things set up well for him tonight. For starters, we love #revenge narratives and while he didn’t necessarily leave Toronto on bad terms, he 100% should be motivated to perform well in his first game back in Toronto. Things are also setting up well for him with Jimmy Butler out for the Heat tonight. Lowry doesn’t get a major boost with Butler off the floor, but it sets up for him to take on more of the offense and shot attempts. This is crazy value for someone of Lowry’s pedigree, and I will be buying into the narrative tonight at a cheap price point.

Value Buy

Moses Brown, Cleveland Cavaliers

Potential Bid: $3.50

Break-Even Point: 47th

Brown has been great for the Cavs since moving into the starting lineup, and is coming off back-to-back 30+ fantasy point games. I’m pretty surprised to see Brown ranked so low in the Jock MKT pre-ranking, after his recent stretch of success. The Cavs still need to win out to avoid moving down in the standings for the play-in games, and Brown will be needed vs the size of this Philly front-court. More importantly, Brown has logged 26 and 30 minutes over the last two games. I think he has the highest ceiling of all the players priced around him, and it wouldn’t shock me to get him at an even cheaper price given the amount of options on this slate.
