Keeper Help!

I have some tough decisions to make and wouldn't mind some feedback.

I play in a PPR league where QBs get 6 points for passing TDs. I can keep 3 of the following:

DeAngelo Williams
Steven Jackson
L. Tomlinson
D.Brees
L. Fitzgerald

Who would you keep? Right now I'm leaning towards Brees, Jackson, and Fitz but if J. Stewart is hurt, D. Williams has to be strongly considered.

Thanks for the help.

Brees, Jackson and Fitz, no question. How many players are in this league? Picking up a top 3 QB, Top 3 WR and Top 6 RB is good work.

Agree with Brees, Jackson and Fitz in that order. LT merits strong consideration over DWill if you think Fitz will regress.

Just to be safe, how many teams are there? What is the starting lineup? Can you keep players forever?

Less standard ones may sway answers. (My one league gives 1 pt / 20 return yards, and the rankings were nothing like what you would expect. )

PPR helps LDT more so than the other RBs, but I like Jackson better long term. I'm not sold on Williams being better than any of the others.

You're really coming out pretty good no matter who you keep.

I'd go with D.Brees, L. Fitzgerald, and DeAngelo Williams. Steven Jackson seems to get injured frequently and LT is on a downward slide in career.

Brees is my #1 QB, Fitz my #1 WR and in PPR, Jackson is my #4 RB, so those three are pretty much no brainers.

I like LT more than Williams in case you want to go outside those three.
