any worse than
the combo of #1 RB and a top 5 WR?
Because TE's normally score much less than WRs. Would you rather throw to Hines Ward (my number 5) or Gonzo?
BUT, if you've got Hines Ward or another #5 WR, you've likely got at best a mediocre TE, while I've got Gonzalez, so I'm scoring many more points than you in the TE position. And if I got a half decent WR pick with my 4th pick, I may still occasionally score points equal or greater than that of Hines Ward or another #5 WR.
Bottom line is that the difference is negligible at best, and there are no facts to back up his statement or to call his friend "crazy."
