Bernard and Jones or Walker. Last two guys on the list really aren't in the same tier due to talent (Cashman) and age (Davis).

well it depends.
i'd sell the ones you can make the most from (bernard, walker and jones) and keep the old dogs that still can do a job (been rolling with davis for three years now in one league, he was already old when we drafted and i picked him in the final rounds, beats drafting cunningham in round 8...) or the flashes in the pan that will still produce this season. i treat LBs as in redraft and it generally works well, they're easy to find, and the old one are dirt cheap to acquire and still put up points.

Assuming team in sig, you get to keep 3 idps.
What that means is that the other owners will pay up only if they see the player as a potential keeper.
Bernard and Jones, possibly Walker, have the most keeper appeal, so if you're looking for a payday, those are the ones to sell.

Good luck!

I’d prefer Walker, then Bernard.

Jones is an acceptable choice if you just LOVE him but I’d go Walker and Bernard.

LB's are pretty easy to replace assuming your scoring for them is more tackle based. Key is just finding guys that get the most snaps. Depending on how deep your league is you can usually find 2-3 unrostered ones That will get the job done any given season. Did this for both Edwards and Long, and they have been very solid for me the last few seasons (Edwards was LB3 this year)

That said I agree with what giants said, sell the ones you can get the most from. Keep the old ones that might have another season with em and just look to hit the FA's to re fill out your depth next season.
