Welcome to the Week 11 DraftKings Tournament Guide. This Guaranteed Prize Pool overview covers the main slate on DraftKings and how to approach the week with roster building strategies, games to target, and cheap salary-saving dart throws that could reach their ceilings this week. Let’s get right into Week 11 and analyze how we should be approaching the main slate for tournaments this week.

Roster-building strategies

It’s an ideal mass-multi enter week

Week 11 has a déjà vu feel to Week 10. Once again, we have a litany of top-shelf running backs for us to choose from who are all in great matchups. Last week’s advice was to mix one of them with a mid-priced back, and there were many mid-priced running backs that came through for us last week. We did this in order to get up to the expensive wide receivers, who were also in some ideal matchups.

While the players and the matchups have shuffled around, not a ton has changed from a roster-building viewpoint. This week however, looks like there’s even more top-shelf backs who are in ideal spots. Instead of narrowing in on just one or two expensive backs to pursue, this could be a good week to mass-multi enter.

The top-priced backs — looking specifically at James Conner ($7,200) and up — are all versatile backs who check off every box we’re looking for. We want our backs to receive the majority of their team’s running back touches, be involved in the passing game, and see those valuable red-zone looks that can provide massive fantasy point swings when they reach the end zone. Mixing and matching these seven backs by MME should lead to a profitable day.
