I certainly wouldn't aim for multiple tier 1 receivers, but it is very justifiable to spend on one of them. I would be cautious and not overpay, though, as there are likely cheaper WR options to be had later in the auction and the same can't necessarily be said about running backs.
Would be looking at all 3. Obviously I would not be willing to overpay for multiple guys but if the price is right to get all three is it worth the gamble?
Perhaps in years past or in a league that awards points per reception this would give you an edge, but in this instance I don't believe it would. That's not to say that spending on the receivers would be a bad investment. In fact, you'd probably get the production you paid for. However, you'd find yourself hamstrung at RB and behind the 8 ball compared to some other teams.
You would have a hard time competing against the team that spent on RB and took a flier on the Jordy Nelsons late in the draft or picked up the Antonio Browns and Laurent Robinsons during the season. Now there are RBs that can emerge and become productive, but not as frequently as its seen at the WR position.
