I think you grab the superstar whenever you can, and that's Calvin.
You will be able to find youth at RB in the late 3rd or 4th round. Guys like Moreno, Felix, and Best are great pickups in that area. They should be respectable RB2, and they have a chance to breakout and be top 7 or 8 RBs and great keepers.
I looked at some ranges for stat projections of Turner vs. Calvin.
Calvin == 70-75 catches, 1050-1200 yards, 6-9 TDs.
points corresponding to those stats (taking averages of that): 36 + 112 + 45 = 193 points projected.
Turner == 7-12 catches for 30-70 yards, 1150 - 1300 rushing yards, 9-13 TDs.
points corresponding to those stats (again using averages): 9 + 5 + 122 + 77 = 203 points.
I know everyone works off of their own stat projections (or uses someone elses'), but it's safe to argue that they will score about the same amount.
So now you have to look at positional scarcity. What I mean by that is total number of impact players at a position. RBs that are true bellcows like Turner are extremely rare -- that's why they are typically 1st or early 2nd round picks, even in a full PPR.
And because you can start 2 RBs with the flex, that means you take that 2nd RB to pair with Gore and Wayne.
