NFL Week 15 Jock MKT Value Buys

Jock MKT is one of the most interesting fantasy sports platforms because of your ability to make money on any individual player available on the market. Other users will dictate the price of players, meaning you’ll always have the option to buy anyone in the player pool.

You may be forced to pay a premium for the best players on the slate, although their price tag will never exceed the $25 per share you’ll receive if they lead the slate in scoring. You aren’t forced to buy high-priced options, though.

With over 100 players on the market, some will go overlooked every Sunday. You don’t need to buy the most expensive options on the market to have the potential for a massive payday. In this article, I’ll look at my favorite potential values for Week 15.

Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, Detroit Lions

Jock MKT Projection: 10.25 FPs

Max IPO Bid: $3.30

Break-Even Rank: 49

St. Brown’s performed well for the Detroit Lions throughout his rookie season. He’s posted 57 receptions for 511 yards and 1 touchdown on 76 targets over 13 games. He’s recorded an outstanding 75% catch rate to go along with 9.0 yards per reception. 

St. Brown struggled in his first 3 games as a pro. He’s quietly posted double-digit fantasy points in 6 of his last 9 games, though. St. Brown’s also had his best games on the season over his last 2 games. He recorded 24.8 fantasy points against the Minnesota Vikings before scoring 15.3 fantasy points against the Denver Broncos last week. St. Brown comes with more upside than he’s flashed thus far, as well, as he’s scored only 1 touchdown on the season. 

Detroit’s rookie gets an interesting matchup against the Arizona Cardinals this weekend. They’re only giving up 209.8 passing yards per game with 6.3 adjusted yards per attempt this season. Arizona’s allowed 19 passing touchdowns with a 4.3% passing touchdown rate in 2021 as well. 

The Cardinals’ pass defense has seen success in terms of advanced metrics thus far. They’ve given up 1,625 air yards, which ranks slightly above average in the NFL this season. Arizona’s been one of the best teams in the NFL in yards after the catch (1,311) allowed as well. Overall, they’ve given up only 2,936 airYAC thus far. 

The key to this play is that St. Brown doesn’t rely heavily on air yards or yards after the catch for success. He’s seen 17.8% of Detroit’s air yards thus far in 2021. He’s recorded only 509 air yards with a 6.7 aDOT. He’s also averaging 4.5 yards after the catch per reception, which is solid but not elite. 

St. Brown’s quickly become a volume option for the Lions. With T.J. Hockenson, D’Andre Swift, and Quintez Cephus out, St. Brown’s taking on a larger role in the offense. He’s seen 12 targets in back-to-back games, which are his only games with double-digit targets this season. With anything to play for, Detroit will likely continue to get their rookie valuable targets to close out the season. 

St. Brown ranks 78th in Jock MKT’s pre-rank for Week 15. He’s projected for only 10.25 fantasy points, which would be his lowest total since his matchup against the Chicago Bears. St. Brown’s 6+ targets in 6 of his last 10 games, scoring 10+ fantasy points in each of those games. He should continue to see plenty of targets in this game, adding to his overall upside, as he goes overlooked because of the Detroit offense. 

Javonte Williams, RB, Denver Broncos

Jock MKT Projection: 10.32 FPs

Max IPO Bid: $4.00

Break-Even Rank: 42

Williams is in the midst of an outstanding rookie season for the Denver Broncos. Through 13 games, he’s recorded 743 yards and 3 touchdowns on 155 carries. He’s added 34 receptions for 279 yards and 3 touchdowns on 44 targets as well. 

Williams has seen plenty of ups and downs throughout the season. He’s posted double-digit fantasy points in 7 of his last 10 games. Williams’ taken over in recent weeks, scored 20+ fantasy points in each of his last 3 games. He’s averaging 24.7 fantasy points per game over that span, flashing 30+ fantasy points. 

The Broncos are relying on Williams and Melvin Gordon to continue to perform as a split backfield. On the season, Williams has played 50% of the offensive snaps, while Gordon’s played 52%. In his only game as the featured running back, Williams posted 32.8 fantasy points against the Kansas City Chiefs. Most thought he’d completely take over after that dominant performance, but he returned to a split with Gordon last week. 

Still, the Broncos are committed to the run, meaning both players have the ability to find success together. Williams gets a matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals, who’re only allowing 93.1 rushing yards per game and 4.1 yards per carry this season. With that being said, Cincinnati’s given up 11 rushing touchdowns in 2021, and this game could play out in a way that benefits Williams. 

The Bengals will be traveling to Denver as small underdogs in this game. The Broncos should be able to continue to feature both of their running backs this weekend. Last week, Williams and Gordon combined for 40 touches. Although Gordon saw the larger share, they’ll likely split once again this weekend. If this game stays close, Denver can continue to rely on one of the best running back duos in the NFL rather than Teddy Bridgewater’s arm. 

Williams owns a pre-rank of 77th on Jock MKT this weekend. He’s projected for 10.32 fantasy points, which would be his lowest total in 4 games. Williams could go a bit overlooked because he isn’t the lead back in Denver’s backfield. With that being said, he boasts tremendous upside on any given week. I don’t fully expect Williams to go overlooked in this market, which is why I bumped his max-IPO bid to $4, but he’ll make a great option if his price doesn’t get too high.
