I think you are going to have to wait on a game time decision to see what SJax status it going to be. If he Plays you have to go with him. As a second RB I would go with Foster. I would steer clear of Greene as he is not getting a whole lot of action and Rex is clearly loving having a health and refreshed LT to lean on. As a flex player I like Floyd, it has become pretty evident that he is the primary WR and targeted second to Gates.
At QB Shaub if clearly a better fantasy QB in most scoring systems. If you look back at Vicks history with Atlanta he was actually a bad fantasy QB not because he doesnt have the athletic ability to be a good fantasy QB but because he is always too quick (IMO) to take off on the run with the ball then to check down to his second and third passing options. I am not a huge Vick fans, and it has nothing to do with his history and character, but from a fantasy history point of view he has not been a good Fantasy QB. The big difference between McNabb and Vick is McNabb is a pass first run second QB whereas Vick thinks run first pass second. Clearly from a career history stand point McNabb has always been the better of the two as a fantasy QB. That said, Shaub will truly be tested this week, if AJ is out or substantially limited with his ankle injury. We will learn this week, whether Shaub makes AJ a great WR or whether AJ makes Shaub a great fantasy QB. What I expect this week is a decent performance by Shaub, Walters and Jones will perform will with Owen Daniels coming back into fantasy relevance. Foster is a solid pass catching back as well that will help fill the gaps with Daniels to cover the loss of AJ should he not be able to go. I would expect 275 to 300 yards, 2 TD's and and Int out of Shaub. As for Vick, he will get back to his 80 yards rushing, 175 passing and maybe 1 passing and 1 rushing TDs.
An Addition element you must weigh in with your decision to start Vick is the fact that Philly and Washington are divisional foes that commonly result in low scoring games.
At QB, go with Vick. Asomugha is a really good corner back, and with Johnson not 100%, they will lean on the run.
Speaking of leaning on the run. Go with Foster. It looks like Best is more likely to play than Jackson (according to what I've found), so I'd go with Best.
Vick, Foster, Best.
As for your flex, I'd wait and see of Jackson is playing and try to go with him. Smith complained this week about not getting the ball enough, so I wouldn't be surprised if they drew up a few extra plays aimed his way. I like Floyd, but it's hard to predict how much he'll give you from week to week. Rivers will throw the ball to anyone that's open. However, Rivers throwing to Floyd is a much better situation than Clausen throwing to Smith.
Hmmm, I'd rank your flex options as Jackson, Floyd, Smith.

My flex can be RB/WR. Gotta choose between schaub and Vick. I always would say go with schaub but Vick is looking like a beast.
Schaub bs Oakland Vick vs Was
I have AP(bye) Sjax vs Seattle Foster vs Oakland Best vs Green bay Charles(bye) Greene vs buffalo EDIT**Wells vs SD
WR's not starting Steve smith(car) vs NO Malcom Floyd vs Arizona
I'd roll Vick @ QB, typically I'd roll Schaub but going out to the west coast w/ AJ being extremely questionable, ride the hot hand - I fully expect Philly to beat up on the Skins.
I'd roll Foster every week w/ AP over any of your other guys until he gives you a reason not to.
