Also depends on if your league gives points for receptions. Makes the WRs much more apealling at a flex position.

Really the only way to answer this is to project out the points you expect from each position.

Im with KG on this one - if its a standard scoring league, Im going to try and target 3 solid RBs early. Not necessarily with my first 3 picks, but definitely trying to fill that flex spot with a good RB if at all possible.

Im pretty sure starting RBs are generally more consistant that starting WRs.

In general I'd say a RB is going to be your best bet, but what kind is largely going to depend on what your scoring is like. If it's yahoo scoring (TD heavy) get a beefy goaline vulture. If you get 1 point per 10 yards (6 pts per TD) then go for the back that loses the goaline carries. If you get points for receptions that will boost the value of hands guys.

In a league where you start 2 rbs, 3 wrs, and a a flex, choices will be very very slim. If you try to fill your flex with a RB, your WR corp becomes weak. So take the best guy available. This is my roster in a league that starts 2rbs, 3wrs and a flex.

QB: Culpepper, Johnson
RB: McCallister, Barber, Garner, Buckhalter, Griffin,
WR: D. Jackson, J. Smith, Burress, Bennett, Morgan, Warrick
TE: Miller
K: Carney
DEF: Tennessee

Thanks all for your input ended up getting S. Davis, M. Bennett, and C. Garner as my 2, 3 and 4 RB's whick will leave me a little lite in WR but should be able to pick up several WR's that have potential to do well in the later rounds and play the best match ups for the week. Got Harrison as my #1 wr so should be OK
You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.
