This is a 12 man $$ league
I wouldn't. You're pretty strong at RB as it is and I don't personally like Smith as a WR2 on a weekly basis. Plus I don't know that Thomas is going to necessarily be better than Olsen so you're looking at less production in your active lineup than what he'll actually produce.
Maybe go a little bigger and offer Marshall + Olsen for Morris, Brown, and Thomas. You don't need 3 TE, so you either end up dropping one of them or trying to trade them anyway. This gives you a knock out RB core on a weekly basis and maintains some WR depth. Between Nicks, Smith, and Brown you should be able to play some matchups pretty well and put some points on the board.

It's a lot easier to find WR help than RB. I've never been in a PPR league, but which probably explains Sproles as a starting RB. I'd submit for Sproles/Marshall/Olsen for Morris/Colston/Thomas.
Torrey Smith is a good flex. Flacco has no one else to throw to. Torrey was a bad pass away from having a big game in week one. He'll have a good year, more consistant than last year too.
WAY too much in a PPR league!!!
While Smith is capable of big games, he's not the consistent threat that you get in a PPR league with guys like the 3 you're recommending get traded away. All of them rank in the Top 3 or 4 at their position in target and receptions each week. That is PPR suicide.
