Who to keep?

I'm in a keeper league drafting soon and I would like to know which 3 to keep out of 4 prospects. It's an auction league so keeper price is listed (out of $200):
-Chris Johnson $12 (he's a lock, not letting go of him)
-Jonathan Stewart $19 (tough playoff schedule (weeks 13-16), backup, but if something happens to Williams he could be the best fantasy back in the league)
-Lee Evans $14 (great receiver on crappy throwing team, usually peaks in october-november, but should be freed up with TO)
-Anthony Gonzalez $12 (almost a lock, I love his prospects this year)

I'm leaning toward dumping Evans, thoughts?

Chris Johnson, Jonathan Stewart and Anthony Gonzalez. Lee Evans is inconsistent and has a crappy quarterback.

I think Evans for $14 and Gonzalez for $12 are about equal value. Depends on which you think you can get cheaper in the draft.

Also, Stewart is going to have a year that outperforms a $19 price tag, even if Williams stays healthy. If he misses time, well, Stewart's going to be one huge steal.
