RBs are just about always the most valuable position in FF. There are very few exception to that, and PPR is not one of them. It makes certain RBs even more valuable. The rule is to generally start a RB in the flex position. A RB will generally pick up yards, but it is not always certain that a WR will make a catch. If you have 3 very good WRs and a RB that is a back-up or 3rd down back, then you will want to go with the WR. It depends a lot on situation and who is on your roster, but I would build it for starting a RB at flex ;-D

PPR makes WR's more valuable, but not more valuable than a true stud RB. Drafting in a PPR league may make me go RB/WR/RB a little more often depending on the talent available, but my biggest priority is still to get two good RB's early.

Make sure you check out a cheatsheet that takes ppr into consideration. It can really have an effect on the RB rankings, also possession receivers get a boost as well.

PPR generally makes receiving RBs MUCH more valuable, and it makes WRs and TEs who catch a lot of passes much more valuable. In most PPR leagues I'm in, I don't even think about drafting a QB until 5th or 6th round, and only then if a high tier one is available. I generally still stick to RB-WR-RB if the drafters are good, but if a very good receiving RB falls to the 2nd round, I'll go for that over a decent WR if a run on WRs had already started. Just my opinion.
