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.

We cap off an action-packed Week 1 (minus the SNF game) with maybe the most obvious revenge narrative of all-time. It’s very clear that things didn’t end well between Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks — and he just so happens to be heading back to Seattle in his first game as the Broncos QB. It’s been years of debate about whether or not the Seahawks should “unleash” him and run a pass-happy offense. Pete Carroll, being stuck in his ways, never adapted the strategy for a full-season. Denver figures to tailor their offense to Russell Wilson’s strengths under first-year HC Nathaniel Hackett. This means we could see a huge passing night from Wilson in Week 1, installed as almost touchdown favorites. I think both Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy are above-average NFL receivers. It’s not like we haven’t seen Wilson support two receivers having monster fantasy seasons — he did it a few times with Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf despite a less fantasy-friendly offense. That being said, Sutton was one of my conviction plays in season-long and I think he’s going to have a monster year. For starters, Sutton has this reputation as a big-body contested catch receiver. He is a big guy — listed at 6’4 216 — but that doesn’t tell the full story. He ranked top-15 in all of football in Air Yards last season. His 15.4 aDOT was first on the team among qualifiers. Data like this tells us that he has potential for splash plays, especially now that he has a QB that excels throwing the deep ball. It’s been reported that he is Wilson’s favorite target already, and I’ll be buying into that on Monday night.

When searching for value on these one game slates, ceiling and big-play ability is crucial. As I noted above, Russell Wilson is regarded as one of the best deep ball passers in football. Even in a year where he was injured (2021) he still ranked top-ten in deep ball numbers. Hamler looks like he will be ready to roll on Monday night, and the upside is evident. He has 4.32 speed, and is best comparable to DeSean Jackson per Player Profiler. He also has one of the better individual match-ups in the slot. Seattle is set to start Justin Coleman at slot CB, and he was one of the worst graded CB’s in the NFL last season. He only saw 10 targets in 2021 before he was injured, but that came with an aDOT of 20.1. Hamler could easily pop for a big play in primetime, and he is my preferred value target.
