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 will 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 2, 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 2
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 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 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 2
Patrick Mahomes — QB — Kansas City Chiefs
We see Jock MKT ranking Patrick Mahomes top overall, which limits his value. Still, Awesemo projects him as the top overall scorer on this slate, which means he would pay out $25 per share. Last week, Mahomes passed for 337 yards and three touchdowns. He also ran a touchdown in.
This week, he faces a Ravens team he is very familiar with at this point. He passed for 385 yards and four touchdowns while adding another touchdown on the ground last season against them. In 2019, he threw for 374 yards and three touchdowns. The Ravens’ defense did not look great last Monday night. They struggled to generate pressure without running a zero blitz, which means Mahomes should have time upfront or wide-open receivers. Either way, Mahomes has no ceiling in Week 2.
Justin Herbert — QB — Los Angeles Chargers
Week 2 is the Chargers’ home opener and Justin Herbert’s first game in front of a home crowd. Facing a physical Washington team, Herbert passed for 337 yards, one touchdown, and an interception. This week, the matchup looks to be much better. Herbert will face a Dallas Cowboys defense that got picked apart by the Buccaneers in Week 1. On top of that, the Cowboys have lost Randy Gregory and top pass rusher DeMarcus Lawrence since that game. These two absences figure to make Herbert’s life much easier.
Jock MKT is overlooking Herbert this week, ranking him down at No. 16. Awesemo projects Herbert to be fifth in scoring on this slate. Should this be true, his shares would be worth $15 apiece, which would likely be a nice profit. The 16th-ranked player gets paid out only $8.50.
Jalen Hurts — QB — Philadelphia Eagles
Last but not least, Jock MKT is absolutely disrespecting Jalen Hurts. You will have to scroll to find him, as he comes into the bidding period as the 37th-ranked player on this Sunday slate. This would only pay out $4.63 per share. Awesemo projects Hurts to be the sixth-ranked scorer, which pays out $14 per share.
Yes, he faced the Falcons last week. However, he and the rest of the offense looked good. Hurts completed 77% of his passes for 264 yards and three touchdowns. That production wasn’t supposed to be there. What makes Hurts truly valuable is his legs, and he ran for another 62 yards. His ground production alone essentially ensures he won’t finish as low as 37. However, Hurts easily has top-five potential, despite the matchup against San Francisco, if he can continue passing as he did.
The 49ers lost Jason Verrett last week, which is a significant loss in the secondary. While their front seven is still great, the Eagles’ offensive line is healthy and solid, meaning Hurts won’t be getting thrown around all day. He is easily one of the best values on Sunday.Take a look at our depth charts, starting lineups and inactives list.
