1. Wallace (riskier pick, but could be incredible this year)
2. Jennings (safe)
3. Jackson

Wallace slightly ahead of Jennings just b/c GB has so many weapons.  Wallace is the man this year in Pitt and having Big Ben to start the season, I expect Wallace to have a better year than Jennings.

Jennings has to share looks with Driver, James, Nelson, Finely. Remember Finely will take looks away, he was injured for almost all season.

Jackson - not a big fan of Jackson, he is hit or miss. The go to guy in SD is Gates, period.  Even in 09, he was a no show for 5 of 16 games, you can't have that for your #1 guy.   Against these 3, he's 3rd IMO.

I'd probably have to agree but you really can't go wrong having 2 of those 3 as your WRs.

Thats the thing with Fantasy...  Its all luck.  Make sure you utilize a website with credible projections.  I personally use rotoworld because they have a draft guide that you can put in your custom league scoring which is huge.  Vick went from #1 to #5 QB after I put in our league's scoring system which gives 6pts for passing TDs, and bonuses for 300, 350, and 400 yards passing.

With all of this being said, I would go

1. Jennings (Safe, consistent, and arguably has the best QB in the league.  Consistency is what wins.)

2. Wallace (Most upside by far, but a very streaky player through his first coulpe of years.  If you can keep two, you should have the consistency of Jennigs, and the big play factor of Wallace.)

3. V Jax (2nd option on his team behind Gates, and just not as solid as the above.)

This is super close and I agree with everyone else that there isn't a wrong answer.

My WR rankings have:
6) Wallace
7) Jennings
8) V. Jackson

Do think you can have Jackson as your #1 though, especially if this is a 12 team league. He was the 9th best WR in standard formats in 2009, so I think a mid to low end WR1 is reasonable this year.

Jackson first.  He is back he is healthy and Rivers loves him.  The fact that antoinio gates is so injury prone makes him have higher value.

Mike Wallace second.  He is a phenomenal athlete with big play capability.  He will get the ball a lot and score a lot because Pitt has thrown the ball more often in recent years.  Remember thought they always seem to fall back on running the ball later in the year as Mendenall takes away many opportunities.

Jennings last.  Look at his stats at end of the year for the past three seasons.  I just don't like him I hope that is reason enough.

after a closer look jennings had good stats towards the end of the season I made a mistake.  but I think like someone said before there are too many good players and options around Jennings.  Granted Rodgers will get the ball to him but I think Wallace and Jackson will see more looks and targets.  Good luck man

Wallace has the most upside, I would say him and Jennings are 1 and 1a. VJack is a notch below.

Id rate 1. jennings 2. vjack 3. mike wallace.  I jus got a feeling pitt is gonna spread out the wealth more this yr since their receiving crew is much improved especially look for antonio brown to be more involved as he was towards the end of the season/playoffs

The same argument could be said about Greg Jennings. Also, Jerimichael will take a lot of balls and TD passes from Jennings. Jackson is a clear number one here. He will get 50 yds plus every week and will have the most TDs out of the three. He also plays the biggest role on that offense, more so than the other two.

I agree with what you said about Pitt and Mike Wallace. They have 3+ great receivers and the ball should definitely find all of them. Antonio Brown is a great player and is the type to drive defensive coordinators crazy. I've met him before back in his Central Mich days. He is really focused, came from nothing, got out of a bad situation type of guy. He doesn't even drink and I highly doubt he smokes. A hard worker that will definitely get his this year.

Thanks guys.....didn't even get 1 of the 3 guys. Was targeting V.Jackson as my 2nd pick and the guy before me snatched him up. Went with Roddy White!! Could of had Jennings or Wallace, but White is more of an elite receiver IMO. Will get way more looks as well......

Wow that worked out well for you. Sir Rodderick will be rock solid and should have his best season yet.
