gonzo is in a league of his own really. Most of the projections or atleast the ones i have seen show
gonzo 8 TD's 800+Yds
Heap 5 TD's 700+ Yds
Franks 5 TD's 500? yds
I have even seen Boo WIlliams up there with 5 TD's and 500 yds
Once you get past gonzo the difference between second teir (heaps, Franks) there isn't a huge drop off in points.
Ie. There are are close to 14 other TE's who project round 3 TD's and 400+ yrds.
now when you look at other positions. Say RB, You have your obvious top teir (not trying to start a debate with this)
Followed pretty closely (relatively)
Once you get here the drop off is pretty signifiacant (i am sure i am missing a few names)
You would be better off with a middle of the line TE. then a middle of the line RB.
IMO. The same can be held true for WR's as well.
This is about the best way to state it. In a fantasy baseball analogy, there isn't much talent at 2b after Soriano and Boone (and even both these guys are struggling). Getting either will cost you an arm and a leg, so it isn't worth it, and after them, you can wait a little while to get a serviceable starter.
