EZ-bar preachers will reduce the involvement of the biceps even further, again particularly the short head. Standing EZ bar curls will target the long head of the biceps and the brachialis, but will also target the medial head if you take a wide grip. This is because the wide grip does cause some degree of wrist supination, and the medial bicep head is the most important supinator muscle.
If you want the brachialis, do reverse grip EZ preachers. If you want the biceps, do standing straight bar curls or EZ curls if your wrists hurt. Any wide grip, straight bar or not, will help to involve the medial head more, but the wide grip stress the wrists unduly.
I have a feeling you know most of what I said, but maybe it will help. I've never personally seen the need to do preachers because the brachialis has grown well from chinups and my biceps from standing straight curls, and now from incline supinating curls.
