If looking for a different way to play NFL DFS on Sunday, it is tough to find anything more unique than Jock MKT. NFL 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 NFL DFS picks and how it aligns with the fantasy football games you already know. Below are three of the best Jock MKT NFL picks for NFL Week 1, based on the expert NFL DFS projections from the No. 1 DFS player in the world, Alex Baker.
Jock MKT Starter Kit: NFL Picks | Week 1
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 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 NFL 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 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 1
Patrick Mahomes — QB — Kansas City Chiefs
Awesemo projects Patrick Mahomes as the top value on this NFL Week 1 Sunday slate, and it’s tough to argue. After being embarrassed in the Super Bowl, this entire Kansas City Chiefs team has been itching to get back on the field. This is a team that looks very motivated again, after looking disinterested much of the 2020 regular season. Add this in with playing in front of a packed Arrowhead crowd again, while also adding that the matchup with the Cleveland Browns could prove to be an important one come December, and Mahomes will likely put together a big performance.
Mahomes has a value of $11.77 in Awesemo’s projections. Should he finish as the top overall scorer, it would be a $13.23 profit per share. However, the profit per share drops to $8.23 if he finishes second, so be aware of the payouts for each ranking.
Adam Thielen — WR — Minnesota Vikings
This looks to be a great spot for Adam Thielen. The Minnesota Vikings are favored on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals, who will be missing cornerback Trae Waynes. Most of the hype on Minnesota will likely go to receiver Justin Jefferson and running back Dalvin Cook. While both are phenomenal players, they will also receive the defense’s focus ahead of Thielen as well.
The main knock on Thielen heading into 2021 is touchdown regression. He scored 14 times last season. But after the injury to Irv Smith Jr., Thielen will continue to get plenty of red zone work. With the Vikings projected to be in the red zone quite a bit, the likelihood that Thielen begins the 2021 season with a touchdown looks to be high, especially given the injury to Waynes on Cincinnati.
Awesemo projects Thielen’s value to be at $3.59, and Jock MKT ranks him down at 18 on its list. All he needs is a touchdown to be a profitable play, but he should have a busy day regardless. Don’t sleep on Thielen in Week 1 and beyond.
Mike Davis — RB — Atlanta Falcons
Jock MKT has Mike Davis ranked all the way down at 108. This is too low for a player that is expected to be a bell cow for this team. Awesemo projects Davis’ value to be $3.38, so there is a lot of room for profit here.
The Atlanta Falcons play at home against the Philadelphia Eagles. There are many ways this game could go, but the Falcons getting blown out at home isn’t one. Atlanta could lead throughout, which would likely mean many carries for Davis. He should be seeing the red zone and goal line touches as well. So, if you think the Falcons can move the ball against the Eagles, which you should, then you must figure Davis will have many red zone opportunities. As a betting man, I’m willing to bet he finishes at least one run in the end zone, which should put him in green territory for you already.
This Eagles vs. Falcons game also has sneaky shootout potential. Going to the bargain bin to find Davis in this opportunity could mean big things.Looking for more NFL DFS picks content?
