Wyeast 1084 is the dame was White Labs WLP004, which I think you may already have as a slant.

use flaked rather than rolled oats. This will make a big difference.

And for extra security you could add some oat husks (available from the Malt Miller)

It depends what the 510g is a a percentage, but to be honest, you might be alright with just flaked oats.

A pound or so of oat husks would be cheap insurance.

I have seen suggestions of using voile netting (available very cheaply on ebay) and lining the mash tun with it. If the mash appears to be stuck just raise and lower the netting a bit to disturb the grain enough to get it going again.

You will also have the added advantage that it won't be able to clog your manifold/filter AND you can just pull the netting out and dump the whole grain bill in the bin/composter with the greatest of ease afterwards.
