NFL Week 4 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 4.

Deebo Samuel, WR, San Francisco 49ers

Jock MKT Projection: 15.22 FPs

Samuel’s seen a surprisingly large role in the San Francisco offense early in the 2021 season. Through 3 games, he’s posted 20 receptions for 334 yards and 1 touchdown on 30 targets. He could add a few rushing attempts on any given slate, as well.

Most importantly, Samuel’s been a consistent part of the offense. He’s seen 8+ targets in each of his 3 games, recording double-digit targets in a pair of those games. Samuel quietly boasts slate-breaking upside, posting 33.9 fantasy points against the Detroit Lions earlier this season.

He gets an elite matchup against the Seattle Seahawks this weekend. Seattle’s allowing 285.3 passing yards per game and 8.8 adjusted yards per attempt in 2021. They’ve given up 5 passing touchdowns with a 4.3% touchdown rate thus far.

Seattle’s given up the fifth-most air yards (527) in the NFL this season. They’ve struggled to get pressure on their opponents, allowing time for their opponents’ plays to develop deeper down the field. Samuel’s seen 207 air yards with a 6.9 aDOT this season. According to NFL Next Gen Stats, he’s recorded 39.5% of San Francisco’s air yards in 2021.

Samuel is also an elite yards-after-the-catch player. He ranks sixth in the NFL in YAC per reception (9.3) and fourth in the league in average YAC above expectation (4.4). In other words, Samuel is one of the best receivers in the league with the ball in his hands. Luckily, the Seahawks are allowing the fifth-most YAC (451) in the NFL this season. Seattle only has 17 missed tackles this season, but Samuel comes with elite upside as the 49ers should be looking to get the ball in his hands in a variety of ways this weekend.

Surprisingly, Samuel isn’t a big part of the San Francisco red zone offense, as he’s seen only 1 red zone target this season. Even so, we’re looking for the ceiling of one of the NFL’s best creators, meaning we’ll be looking for deeper touchdowns out of Samuel in this matchup.

With a 15.22 fantasy point projection, Samuel ranks 63rd on Jock MKT’s pre-rank. He isn’t a receiver that will cost you upwards of $10 this weekend, but he boasts the pure upside to finish in the top-5 players of the entire slate.

Rondale Moore, WR, Arizona Cardinals

Jock MKT Projection: 9.87 FPs

Moore’s a boom or bust option, as he’s seen mixed results early this season. He owns 13 receptions for 183 yards and 1 touchdown on only 15 targets through 3 games. He can continue this efficiency because of his specific role in the Arizona offense.

Moore’s only played 71 snaps in 2021, which is 36% of the snaps overall. Oddly enough, he saw his largest snap-share (46%) in a close matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. He also posted his best fantasy score in that game with 27.4 fantasy points.

This is an interesting matchup for Moore. The Los Angeles Rams are allowing 281.3 passing yards per game this season, although they’re only giving up 6.3 adjusted yards per attempt. The Rams have also allowed only 2 passing touchdowns through 3 games in 2021.

With that being said, Los Angeles allowed the fourth-most YAC (456) through Week 3. Moore leads the NFL in YAC per reception (13) by nearly 3 yards. He also ranks second in average YAC above expectation (4.8) on the season. With only a 2.8 aDOT and 5.2% of Arizona air yards, the Cardinals continue to feature Moore in ways to get the ball in his hands quickly.

The rookie also has had a surprising red zone role early this season. Through 3 games, he’s tied with A.J. Green for a team-high 4 targets inside-the-20. Although he’s a consistent big-play threat, this role only adds to Moore’s upside on any given slate.

He currently owns a pre-rank of 117 out of 120 players on this slate. He could be one of the cheaper buys on this slate. His risk is on display with his expected price, but he boasts the upside to easily exceed value this weekend.

Christian Kirk is another Arizona wide receiver that will likely go overlooked on this slate.
