Just ask anyone who has a non-Big 4 WR about that.
I agree it is a week arguement, and having a TE definately adds to the strategy. If you don't grab a stud early, you have to play the WW which I have done this year with some remarkable success. It adds more of a challenge to FF. It is not all about luck. Read some stats, check the matchups, look at ESPN to see who give up points to TE's and pick one from the wire.
If this was about realism, why do we start 2 RB's that are actually HB's?
