If looking for a different way to play DFS MLB tonight, it is tough to find anything more unique than Jock MKT. MLB DFS becomes a stock exchange on this platform, allowing users to buy and sell in real-time for real money. To play, download the app here and get to trading. 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 Friday, Sept. 10, 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 | Sept. 10
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
George Springer — OF — Toronto Blue Jays
Springer checks in as the top-ranked hitter on the Awesemo expert projections, making him the perfect player to buy low. Tonight’s matchup against Orioles right-hander Chris Ellis is a profitable one, as evidenced by the Blue Jays having the slate’s highest implied run total (5.8) by more than half a run. In addition, the Orioles bullpen has the highest ERA in baseball; after Ellis exits the game, it is all systems go for Toronto.
Springer is expected to return to the lineup after a three-day hiatus with a knee injury. Over the course of the season, Springer has hit for more power against right-handed pitching, with 13 of his 16 home runs coming against them. While injuries have played a big part in keeping his overall numbers down, Springer is ready to help the Blue Jays make a big run towards the postseason. Perhaps the hiatus is coming at the right time considering he went hitless in his last two games.
Whit Merrifield — 2B — Kansas City Royals
Merrifield and the Royals get a profitable matchup against Twins right-hander Griffin Jax, who has allowed at least four runs in each of his last four starts. Jax has struggled greatly this season, especially at home, with a 6.31 ERA in six appearances (three starts). In fact, Kansas City roughed him up pretty in their only matchup, recording eight hits and six runs over five innings.
If looking for a consistent stock moving upwards, Merrifield is the guy. Before going 0-for-5 in yesterday’s game, he hit safely in eight of his previous nine games. Merrifield has more doubles (6) and RBIs (14) against the Twins than any other team this season, so look for him to keep it rolling.
Daniel Vogelbach — 1B — Milwaukee Brewers
With the Brewers moving into the American League park for the weekend, Vogelbach will use the DH rule to his advantage. He usually comes in as a pinch-hitter, so this is an under-the-radar play. Vogelbach is an all-or-nothing player in that he is looking to crush a home run rather than take a conservative approach at the plate. However, that risk is viable with a player that will not cost much. According to Awesemo’s expert projections, Vogelbach has one of the best value rankings on the slate.
Indians right-hander Eli Morgan has been much worse at home this season, going 1-5 with a 7.53 ERA in eight starts. Morgan has allowed three home runs in his last 7.1 innings at Progressive Field. The Brewers are on their way to the postseason, so look for this to be another stepping towards success.
