Welcome to the Week 14 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 14 and analyze how we should be approaching the main slate for tournaments this week.

Roster-building strategies

Building a concise player pool

Week 14 is another full 13-game slate with tons of options for us to choose from. There is an incredible amount of value at every position and it is shaping up to be a mass-multi-entry week. Building a concise player pool is paramount to finding success without unnecessarily throwing money away at poor plays.

Too often I see players spread themselves too thin trying to get access to every game. While I understand the play of trying to cover your bases, tightening your core to a few games that are heavily targeted gives you a better shot with more dart throws concentrated in a select area.

Determine which players are priority plays for you, which players are quality filler plays, and which ones are straight fades. Filtering through players on a 13-game slate takes some time, but it’s part of the right process in order to help yourself narrow in on which players you think are capable of putting up a big week.

Combine the few games you want to target (help on that below) with the priority plays and you’re off to a strong start. Mixing in some cheap dart throws with upside (also help on that below) should help round out your core of players in your player pool.
