NFL Jock MKT Play (Week 18)

Welcome to our NFL Jock MKT Play for Week 18. Below I’ll outline two of my favorite Jock MKT buys for this weekend.


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.

Week 17 Results

AJ Brown

Highest Potential Bid: $6.34

Break-Even Point: 26

Brown struggled quite a bit against the Miami Dolphins last week. He ended the slate with 2 receptions for 41 yards on 5 targets. Brown posted only 6.1 fantasy points, and he ended up being worth only $1. We’d have lost $5.34 per share on Brown last week.


Jaylen Waddle

Highest Potential Bid: $5.84

Break-Even Point: 29

Waddle also struggled throughout the game. He posted 3 receptions for 47 yards on 7 targets, recording 7.7 fantasy points. He also ended up being worth only $1 per share, losing us $4.84 per share on him at our max bid.

Overall, it was an awful week for this article. We’d have lost $10.18 per equal share of Brown and Waddle. We didn’t have to quite pay that for them, though, as Brown cost $5.90 in the IPO, while Waddle cost $5.41. Overall, we’d have lost $9.31 per equal share of these two players.


Week 18 Buy

Diontae Johnson

Highest Potential Bid: $6.34

Break-Even Point: 26

If you’re new to Jock MKT, you may be struggling to read what’s listed below the Johnson recommendations. Essentially, I’m willing to spend up to $6.34 per share for Johnson. He needs to finish 26th 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 Johnson at $6.34 and he finishes 26th in this field, I make my $6.34 back. If he finishes 1st, I win $25 (profit $18.66). If he finishes last, I win $1 (lose $5.34). It’s that simple. 

Johnson’s seen mixed results throughout the 2021 season. He’s recorded 100 receptions for 1,110 yards and 8 touchdowns on 159 targets through 15 games. Johnson’s flashed elite upside throughout the season, posting 33.5 fantasy points in his last game against the Baltimore Ravens. He’s scored double-digit fantasy points in each of his last 10 games.

Johnson gets an elite matchup again against Baltimore this weekend. The Ravens are giving up a league-high 281.7 passing yards per game and 8.6 adjusted yards per attempt in 2021. They’ve also allowed 30 passing touchdowns with a 5.2% passing touchdown rate.

Baltimore’s been the worst defense in the NFL in terms of airYAC as well. They’ve given up 2,381 air yards and 2,342 yards after the catch (YAC). Overall, they’ve allowed a league-high 4,723 airYAC, which ranks significantly higher than the next closest team.

Johnson’s struggled a bit recently, and he only ranks 40th in Jock MKT’s pre-rank this weekend. He’s projected for 14.73 fantasy points in Week 18. Pittsburgh is in a must-win situation, and they’ll likely feature Johnson in their offense. He has the potential to lead the slate in scoring, and he’s an elite buy this weekend.
