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.

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.
With Bryce Perkins not available in tonight’s player pool, Thompson is the top QB option and top-overall projection for raw points. It’s unlikely we see much of Tua or Teddy Bridgewater, which means we can expect a heavy dose of Thompson on Saturday — potentially three quarters. There has been some sickness spreading throughout Dolphins camp this week, so if purchasing shares of Thompson you’re going to want to confirm he is available to play. That being said, we have no reason to expect less than at least a half of Thompson against the Eagles and he is the top-overall buy.
The Rams are once again one of the thinnest teams, as they will play essentially no starters after a tough week of join practices against the Bengals. You can go all-in on any of the Rams WR’s — seeing as the same rotation of McCutcheon, Trammell, Akers and Harris should play pretty much the entirety of the game. McCutcheon is the clear option though, with insane numbers through two weeks of action. We know he’s going to be on the field a ton and he has a legitimate case for top-overall buy tonight even over the Quarterback’s.
And rounding out my top plays is Sam Howell, who I personally thought had a legit case for top-overall QB in this past draft class. I think he was severely underrated coming out of UNC and he has balled out this preseason with multiple rushing touchdowns. Overall, I think he plays two full quarters tonight and with what he’s shown with his legs that could be enough for him to be the top player on Saturday.
