In any given game, the answer is no. WE will not compensate for shortcomings in other categories within a game.
What high(er) WE will do is make your players' attributes grow faster than a low WE player, all other things being equal (potential from scouting report, practice time, starts, etc). So, if you recruit a player that's not quite as good as another *right now*, but he has a much higher WE (and let's assume their potential is the same), the higher WE guy could end up as the better player down the road, depending on how much ground he had to make up.
