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 this week.

Jock MKT has regularly been offering $250 prize pool FREE contests for the preseason. If you are in an eligible state and not playing these contests, you’re missing out on free money. It’s not often that sites offer legitimate free contests with prize pools, and this is how you can grow a bank roll without ever having to deposit a substantial amount of money. If you’ve yet to sign-up for Jock MKT — promo code KARMA will get you a deposit match up to 100%. Click here to sign-up!
With these free rolls, the strategy changes a bit from your regular cash market contest. You are allotted 250 chips to spend on player shares in tonight’s free roll. All users start with the same amount of chips, and prizes are awarded based off highest ending chip balance. Bidding opens at 6:00 pm EST and ends shortly before trading begins at 8:00 pm EST. This makes the optimal strategy to go all-in on one single player. If you use all of your allotted chips to secure shares of one player, and he outperforms ROI% compared to the other players, you are going to end with the highest chip balance at the end of the contest. In this article, I’m going to highlight the top players I’m considering going all-in on tonight.
Book played every snap of the Saints preseason game in Week 2, and we can pretty much expect the same run for him tonight. It’s very rare that we can project a player for an entire game of playing time, especially a QB. Even though the results have been below-average from Book, he does have some rushing ability and anyone that is expected to play the full game is going to sit atop the best plays on the slate.
I’m a Zappe fan, and I think he likely sees extended run tonight as well. We saw him play a ton in the Patriots Week 1 game, resulting in 205 yards and a touchdown. It’s unlikely we see any Mac Jones, and Brian Hoyer played just one drive last week. After Hoyer exits, that will pave the way for Zappe to play the rest of the game and unlike Book, we know he can air the ball out. I think he has arguably the highest ceiling on tonight’s slate and he should play a ton.
Nixon, and his teammate Lil’Jordan Humphrey, are the top WR plays on Friday night. New England was already somewhat thin at this position and now Kristian Wilkerson and Tyquan Thornton will miss tonight. Both these guys have been crushing, but Nixon has led the team in snaps and targets. I think both should play pretty much the whole game on Friday night and are fantastic options. If either finds the end zone there’s a good chance they could be the top player tonight.
Smith is the top running back option tonight, in line for heavy work for the Saints. They still have Tony Jones Jr available, but he is pretty much a lock for the RB3 spot so there is no reason for him to get extended run on Friday. Devine Ozigbo was cut, leaving just Smith and Kirk Merritt — a WR that has been seeing some time in the backfield in practice this week. Overall, he will see the most work of all RB’s tonight which easily makes him the top option.
