Default best yeast for oatmeal stout?

already went through the website and found some answers, but i wanted to get an updated opinion. whats the most widely used yeast for oatmeal stouts? so far im looking at wlp001, wlp002, wlp004, wlp007, or ? this will be my first oatmeal stout and want to capture the same strain of something similar to a youngs oatmeal stout or a velvet merkin, cheers...

I use wlp02 so it leaves some residual sweetness, sometimes wlp05 also
