NFL Week 7 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 7.

Kyle Pitts, TE, Atlanta Falcons

Jock MKT Projection: 12.64 FPs

Max IPO Bid: $3.25

Unsurprisingly, Pitts’ seen mixed results early in his rookie season. Through 5 games, he posted 24 receptions for 308 yards and 1 touchdown on 36 targets. He’s also coming off of his best game of the season. 

Pitts’ seen a big role in the offense the entire season, playing 49+ snaps in each of his 5 games. He’s seen 8+ targets in 3 games, as well, although he struggled in 2 of those 3 contests. With that being said, Pitts is coming off of an elite game, recording 9 receptions for 119 yards and 1 touchdown on 10 targets. 

This is going to be an interesting game for the rookie tight end. He proved last week that he can be the focal point of the offense without Calvin Ridley or Russell Gage, but they’re returning this weekend. I don’t expect Pitts to lose his role in the offense, although he may see less than double-digit targets. With that being said, it isn’t out of the question that he continues a massive role if Atlanta feels he’s ready for it. 

Pitts gets an elite matchup against the Miami Dolphins this weekend. They’re allowing the fourth-most passing yards per game (292.5) and third-highest adjusted yards per attempt (8.7) in 2021. They’ve also given up 13 passing touchdowns with a 5.6% passing touchdown rate this season. 

One of the keys to this game is Miami’s struggles to defend after the catch. They’ve allowed the seventh-most yards after the catch (812) in the league. Miami’s missed 45 tackles this season, as well. 

Pitts quietly leads the Atlanta Falcons receivers and tight ends with 3.7 yards after the catch per reception. He’s also seen 0.3 average yards after the catch above expectation in 2021. 

Miami’s struggled with air yards this season, as well, and Pitts has seen 25.7% of Atlanta’s air yards thus far. He only owns an 8.9 aDOT through 5 games, but his athletic ability makes him an elite option in this matchup. 

Pitts ranks 62nd in Jock MKT’s pre-rank for Week 7. He’s projected for 12.64 fantasy points. He’s a mismatch for anyone in the NFL, although he’s continuing to adjust to the new level. Pitts flashed in his last game, and even though multiple receivers are returning, he should see plenty of opportunities to find success in this game. 

Kalif Raymond, WR, Detroit Lions

Jock MKT Projection: 7.84 FPs

Max IPO Bid: $2.25

Raymond’s quietly flashed for the Detroit Lions this season. He’s recorded 20 receptions for 219 yards and 2 touchdowns on 31 targets through 6 games. Raymond’s role is far from solidified, but he does boast surprising upside for where he sits in the market. 

He’s posted 9+ fantasy points in 4 of 6 games this season. Raymond flashed with a pair of touchdowns the other week, scoring 19.6 fantasy points against the Chicago Bears. Although he’s dependent on touchdowns for his ceiling, he isn’t priced for his current role in the Detroit offense. 

Raymond gets a matchup against the Los Angeles Rams, who are allowing 259.3 passing yards per game and 6.0 adjusted yards per attempt. They’ve only given up 6 passing touchdowns with a 2.4% passing touchdown rate. 

The key issue with Los Angeles’ pass defense is their struggles with yards after the catch. They’re allowing the fifth-most yards after the catch (835) in 2021. Surprisingly, they’ve only missed 34 tackles this season. 

Raymond’s averaging 4.6 yards after the catch per reception through 6 games. In terms of healthy receivers, he leads Detroit in this category. He also owns 0.5 average yards after the catch above expectation. 

Raymond’s been a surprising red zone option for Detroit this season. He’s turned 3 red zone targets into 2 receptions for 14 yards and 1 touchdown. He also scored a touchdown on his only target inside-the-10. Although Raymond isn’t a massive red zone option, the threat is there, adding to his upside on any given week. 

He owns a pre-rank of 113th on Jock MKT this weekend. He’s only projected for 7.84 fantasy points. Raymond’s one of the riskest options in the market for Week 7, but he comes with plenty of upside, specifically in this type of matchup. He’ll be absurdly cheap, and he makes a solid risky play if you’re looking for cheap upside.
