    Second Tier WR vs Top TE

    Roy Williams may be the number one reciever in Dallas, but he is a third tier wide out in fantasy football. Go with Gonzo, he has a better QB in Matt Ryan throwing to him this year instead of Tyler Thigpen, who is now a back-up QB.

    • I say take a WR2, you can get a good TE later - V.Davis is a good sleeper this year, he's gonna be a Top 10 TE by the end of the year IMO.

    • Dude you need to check your facts on Thigpen - he was the reason why Gonzo did better last year than he did the previous couple of years (especially with the TDs)...

      I wouldn't take a TE before my WR2 though (you should be grabbing 2 WR's from the top 15 anyway).

      I'd be trying to snare 2WR's and 2 RB's from the top 15 on my board if I can - based on what you have you either then go with the best player available (QB if a good one slips, RB if someone you'd be happy to have as your RB2 slips or a WR3).

      In this scenario a high-reception TE falls into the same bracket as a comparable WR3 for fantasy purposes, but when in doubt I take the WR as there's plenty of depth in the TE ranks now and WR's who get a comparable number of receptions will usually find the end zone a bit more.

      It's tricky because you need to look ahead to see what the likely picks are going to be before your next one - receivers tend to go off the board in bunches and there's no way I'd want to kill myself at WR to get a premium TE.
