Jock MKT Starter Kit: NFL Picks | Steelers vs. Vikings
To begin, enter the NFL Daily Market when the Initial Public Offering (IPO) phase is underway. Leading up until kickoff on the slate’s 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 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 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 up until the final whistle.
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 NFL Picks for Week 14 Thursday Night Football
Justin Jefferson — WR — Minnesota Vikings
Jock MKT ranks Justin Jefferson as the top overall player, as does Awesemo. If this were to play out, shares of Jefferson would pay out $25 each. The Steelers have given up 7.4 yards per pass attempt over their past three games, which is the third-highest mark in the league, proving they could be susceptible to giving up the big play tonight. When big play and Vikings are uttered in the same sentence, typically Jefferson is involved. He is coming off a monster four-game stretch in which he totaled 32 receptions for 577 yards and three touchdowns. Especially with Adam Thielen out for Minnesota tonight, look for Jefferson to be heavily targeted once again, likely making a big play or two in prime time.

Dalvin Cook — RB — Minnesota Vikings
This was an incredibly quick turnaround from the shoulder injury Dalvin Cook suffered, but the reports are he will play tonight barring a setback. Still, many will be hesitant to play him, and rightfully so. However, much like the stock market, the goal is to buy low on Jock MKT. There is no doubt this is a low for Cook given the injury and matchup against a physical defense. However, if he looks anywhere close to 100%, then it will be a nice payoff.
The Steelers allowed 97 yards and a touchdown to Devonta Freeman last week and 163 with two touchdowns to Joe Mixon the week prior, so this matchup is not necessarily a scary one. Cook has upside. Jock MKT ranks Cook fifth overall, but Awesemo projects him to finish second, which would pay out $20 per share.
Cook is looking like a surprise returner for tonight’s Thursday Night Football game, but Eric MacPherson has you covered with all the analysis you need when creating your traditional NFL DFS lineups on DraftKings and FanDuel. Check out his Week 14 Thursday Night Football NFL DFS Showdown Picks for all of his thoughts on tonight’s slate.
Diontae Johnson — WR — Pittsburgh Steelers
The passing attack for Pittsburgh should have some success tonight. Minnesota has allowed a league-high 8.6 yards per pass attempt over their past three games. The Vikings have also allowed 286.3 yards passing on average over these three weeks, which is second worst in the NFL. If the Steelers are having success through the air, Diontae Johnson should be involved. He has totaled 914 yards and six touchdowns on 120 targets through 11 games. Johnson is one of the best talents at wide receiver in the NFL, and the targets show he is a major part of the game plan every week. He has seen double-digit targets in six of his past seven games. Jock MKT ranks Johnson sixth on this slate, while Awesemo projects Johnson fourth, which would pay out $12 per share.
