Welcome to the Week 7 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 7 and analyze how we should be approaching the main slate for tournaments this week.

Roster-building strategies

Prioritize stud running backs

I’ve been hammering this strategy over the past few weeks now. With the way DraftKings is pricing players this year, it’s much easier to pay up for the running backs that we can project for a high number of touches and supplement them with cheap receivers that are in line for increased targets.

It doesn’t work the other way.

Cheap running backs are generally cheap because they don’t have a clear path to touches. It’s that simple.

There’s no “one way” to build lineups in tournaments, but you give yourself a better chance when you prioritize touches and touchdown potential. Finding players that have both in their wheelhouse makes for a strong foundation.
