Help me pick my keepers! AKA which long odds players are worth the gamble?

I need to pick keepers for 2 different leagues. Most of them I have figured out, but it's the last few in each league I'm struggling with.

All players listed with keeper cost from a $200 auction budget.

In a standard scoring league where I'm already keeping Antonio Brown ($32), Alvin Kamara ($6) and Jimmy G ($6). I need one more from this list:

WR Will Fuller $6
RB Peyton Barber $6
RB Jamaal Williams $6

In a PPR league (actually it's a point per first down league, but PPR values are the closest comp) that's also a 2 QB league, I need to pick 2 from this list:

QB Carson Wentz $8
WR Will Fuller $6
RB Peyton Barber $6
TE Evan Engram $6
RB Frank Gore $6

Would love any feedback you guys have. Thanks!

Thanks man.

So you think Barber keeps that starting job all season? Or is more likely to than Williams?

Fuller is tricky because he was on fire last year. And his role is unchanged and uncontested. But he will probably put up some bagels this year too...

To me i dont think either keeps it. Im not particularly high on any of tbe 3 to be honest.

Fuller is intriguing but his ppints were mainly touchdowns if im not mistaken.

Wasnt really a high volume guy. That alone is only reason i didn't choose him over barber.

Yeah Fuller was right there with Watson. Where he had 1 to 2 long TD bombs per game. Watching both him and Watson you couldn't help but think, "well there's no way this continues." But then it did, until Watson got hurt. And then Fuller too. So now we're all just wondering, was that a small sample aberration? Or can these guys really ball out like that consistently? In a way it reminds me of Jimmy G and Goodwin. But Fuller is a more extreme version of Goodwin, both good and bad.

So had my draft last night is the non PPR league. It's a 12 team auction where each team can have 4 keepers at escalating cost so you never really know what will happen when the draft starts. Top end players went for super high figures this year.

I ended up with:

QB - Jimmy G
WR - A Brown
WR - W Fuller
WR - M Goodwin
RB - A Kamara
RB - M Gordon
FLX - D Henry
TE - D Njoku
K - M Crosby
DST - Jax
BN - D Funchess
BN - S Watkins
BN - N Agholor
BN - P Barber
BN - A Morris
BN - M Breida

obviously i went a little hard on the 9ers..... and while i meant to go with a stars and studs approach, i ended up with more spray and pray. my hope is that either one of those WRs has a bigger year than expected, or some of those RBs can be traded for better WRs or maybe a TE.

what do you guys think? did i get too 9er happy?
