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.

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.
You’ll notice that some players are not available to purchase — both Jets QB’s that we expect to play tonight being two of them. This cements Ridder as the top overall buy by a landslide tonight. It sounds like Marcus Mariota will play one or two series, if that, paving the way for Ridder to potentially play the rest of the game. He saw heavy playing time in their Week 1 preseason game, resulting in 100 yards and two passing touchdowns while adding 50 yards on the ground. A dynamic, dual threat playmaker that can post huge fantasy games due to his rushing ability. It’s likely he will play the most of any QB in tonight’s game and he is the priority for me on Monday night.
With no other QB we expect to get heavy playing time available, I turn my focus to the running back position. RB is a less volatile than receiver, and Knight should get solid run again in Week 2. He was second on the team in snaps at this position last week, behind La’Michael Perine who is not in the player pool. Knight wasn’t very efficient with his touches, but did have a goal-line carry that he plunged in for a touchdown. He should get similar run against the Falcons.
And we end my targets with a Jets receiver. Jackson was first on the team in snaps at his position in Week 1, and ended up finding the end zone on a pass from Chris Streveler who should see a lot of action at QB again. He should be among the leaders in snaps again, and his three targets was one of the higher numbers on the team in Week 1.
