In this column, we are going to review the basics of Jock MKT, including how it differs from making regular MLB DFS picks and how it aligns with the fantasy baseball games you already know. Below are three of the best Jock MKT MLB picks for the American League Wild Card Game between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox on Tuesday, Oct. 5, based on the expert MLB DFS projections from the No. 1 DFS player in the world, Alex Baker.
The Jock MKT Starter Kit: MLB DFS Picks | Oct. 5
To begin, enter the MLB Daily Market when the Initial Public Offering (IPO) phase is underway. Leading up until the first game, bid on players you are interested in acquiring on the open market. Is there a player who you consider a favorite to finish at the top of the rankings? Invest as much or as little as you want in their fantasy performance, with shares beginning at $1 and ranging all the way up to $25. See potential injury news that could open an opportunity for another player to acquire fantasy points? Make speculative bids for shares of the backup, hoping for that news to break after the IPO phase is complete.
The next part of the game occurs during live trading. Unlike regular MLB DFS, where your plays are locked in, you can buy and sell shares of players while the games are happening based on their production and where you could see them finishing amongst the field. Track as current points, projected points, and live price for each player is updated in real-time, allowing you to track the action and invest in an instant to account for news. Trading can be done all the way up until the final pitch of the night’s final game.
Each player share is paid out at the end of the games based on their final rankings of fantasy points amongst the field. If the shares you own are worth more than what you paid, you win money. For more information, check out the Jock MKT website.
Jock MKT MLB DFS Picks Tonight
Aaron Judge — OF — New York Yankees
Judge had a rough weekend against the Rays before finally getting the game-winning RBI to send the Yankees to the Wild Card Game. Today’s prop betting article noted that Judge has a .400 on-base percentage and 20% walk rate against the Red Sox this season. Judge is the top-rated hitter in Awesemo’s expert projections, and he should get on base a few times tonight.
Rafael Devers — 3B — Boston Red Sox
Devers has homered three times against Yankees right-hander Gerrit Cole in his career. He is clearly the way to go if taking Red Sox players, as evidenced by him being the second-highest rated hitter in Awesemo’s expert projections. Devers capped off the regular season with a massive 4-for-5 day at the plate in Washington on Sunday, with two home runs and four RBIs. He also hit a home run the night before. Devers has homered five times against the Yankees this season, the second-most against any team. With J.D. Martinez left off the roster tonight, Devers will certainly have plenty of heavy lifting to do at the plate.
Anthony Rizzo — 1B — New York Yankees
Rizzo is another player that can get on base in a variety of ways. He will also be hitting in front of Judge, which means he will get plenty of quality pitches to hit tonight. Slated to hit second tonight, Rizzo will look to keep things going. Over the last four games he has homered twice and found his way on base in three of them. Rizzo will be excited to get back to the playoffs too, which he has not been a part of since 2018 with the Cubs.Thanks for reading to the end of this article!
