Week 3 Flex options

I have to play 2 WRs, 2 RBs, and 1 Flex out of the following:

R. Moss
R. Wayne
D. Bowe
M. Turner
R. Grant
S. Slaton

Right now Slaton is the odd guy out. He has a good matchup in Jacksonville and Turner has to go to New England. I am considering switching them. Thoughts?

Note: PPR league, 1pt for 10 yards rush/rec, 6 pts for TDs.

Moss, Wayne, Turner, and Grant are definates. Jacksonville seems like a good matchup for Slaton, but they really haven't been torched on the ground (granted, it's been Indy and Arizona, two bad running teams last year). On the other hand, the Eagles have good corners and can probably take away Bowe, but in PPR league I think he's the play. I'd sit slaton.

I would say Slaton, but I'm biased because I'm starting him this week. I think Slaton is likely to get a good number of catches, even if he doesn't tear it up on the ground. Bowe has a higher floor (probably about 8 in PPR) but Slaton has a higher ceiling.

Bench Bowe

Bowe's inactive, so make sure to bench him.
