NFL Week 6 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 6.

Kadarius Toney, WR, New York Giants

Jock MKT Projection: 12.52 FPs

Max IPO Bid: $3.00

Toney’s performed well when given the opportunities for the New York Giants. Through 5 games, he posted 20 receptions for 281 yards on 27 targets. He also owns some rushing potential on any given week. 

Toney’s seen his role increase with injuries to Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton. Toney saw only 5 snaps in his first 2 games before seeing 46, 49, and 37 snaps over his last 3 games. Over the last 2 weeks, Toney posted 16 receptions for 267 yards on 22 targets. He recorded 13.9 and 32.6 fantasy points in those games. He was ejected against the Dallas Cowboys or he could’ve flashed more upside, as well. 

Toney’s in an interesting spot again this weekend. Shepard and Slayton were limited in practice this week, and it looks as if they will both start on Sunday. With that being said, Kenny Golladay is expected to miss this game. Ultimately, it’s unknown at this point, but Shepard would likely shift outside to allow Toney more snaps in the slot. The first-round pick could continue to be a focal point of an injured offense this weekend. 

Toney gets a great matchup against the Los Angeles Rams this weekend. They’re allowing 271 passing yards per game and 7.0 adjusted yards per attempt in 2021. The Rams have only allowed 6 passing touchdowns this season with a 3.1% passing touchdown rate. 

With that being said, Los Angeles’ struggled with 30 missed tackles this season. They’ve allowed the fifth-most yards after the catch (YAC) in the NFL this season at 721 yards. 

Toney’s been one of the best receivers in the NFL after the catch. He’s averaging 8.5 YAC per reception this season, which ranks sixth in the league. He’s also averaging 3 yards per catch over the expectation in 2021. 

Toney’s flashed elite upside without finding the end zone. He’s seen 2 red zone targets on somewhat of limited snaps, though, and both were inside-the-10. He wasn’t able to convert on either target, but he’ll continue to see opportunities as the season progresses. 

The rookie ranks 68th in Jock KT’s pre-rank this weekend. He’s projected for 12.52 fantasy points. Toney’s athleticism gives him an elite ceiling when given the targets, although fantasy players haven’t caught on yet. If Shepard and Slayton are active this weekend, Toney should go overlooked, but he boasts tremendous upside for what should be a low price tag. 

Mecole Hardman, WR, Kansas City Chiefs

Jock MKT Projection: 11.41 FPs

Max IPO Bid: $2.50

Hardman’s seen mixed results through 5 games this season. He’s recorded 22 receptions for 199 yards and 1 touchdown for the Kansas City Chiefs thus far. His role’s fluctuated a bit on a weekly basis, but he’s the consistently found snaps in one of the best offenses in the NFL. 

Hardman’s quietly posted double-digit fantasy points in 3 of his 5 games this season. He’s also coming off of his best game, scoring 16.6 fantasy points against the Buffalo Bills. Hardman didn’t find the end zone in that game, suggesting he comes with more upside than he’s shown early this season. 

The key to this play is air yards. Hardman gets a matchup against the Washington Football Team, who’ve allowed a league-high 998 air yards this season. It’s important to note that this total is nearly 100 more than the next closest. Washington blitz’s at one of the highest rates (34.9%) in the NFL, allowing teams to take deep shots. 

Hardman isn’t Kansas City’s usual deep threat, as that role is reserved for Tyreek Hill, who is also an elite buy this weekend, but won’t be nearly as cheap. Overall, Hardman’s seen 14.6% of the Chief’s air yards with a 6.9 aDOT. 

Although the air yards haven’t been available this season, the young receiver if still in an interesting spot. He ran an elite 4.33 40-yard dash, which is only slightly slower than Hill. It’s likely at some point, Hardman attempts to take the top off of the defense. Hill’s also dealing with a lingering injury, and while I don’t necessarily expect Hardman to take over his role, Kansas City could choose to give Hill a break a few times in this game. 

Overall, Washington’s allowing 293.4 passing yards per game and 8.7 adjusted yards per attempt this season. Both of these rank in the bottom-seven of the NFL. Furthermore, the Football Team ranks second-last in passing touchdowns allowed (14) and passing touchdown allowed percentage (7.2%) this season. 

One key that generally goes overlooked is Hardman’s surprising red zone role. He ranks second on Kansas City, turning 4 red zone targets into 2 receptions for 16 yards and 1 touchdown. He also ranks second on the team in targets inside-the-10. 

Hardman has a pre-rank of 77th on Jock MKT for this weekend. He’s a player that comes with tremendous upside in this particular matchup, though. He’s also a cheap way to get Tyreek Hill (lite version) on this slate. Keep in mind, Hardman is a risky option, but he comes with tremendous upside because of his speed in this particular matchup.
