Let's make it simple. You're level 1. There's a ghoul.
If you stay adjacent, it attacks you three times. If you move away, provoking, it attacks you twice. If you tumble away, it might only get to attack you once.
It's not rocket surgery.
Front liners also generally take on the responsibility of defending the squishies. They have the AC and fort saves to do so.
A group where nobody is willing to take on that role is a group that, in general, is going to have a LOT of difficulties in succeeding. Quite likely with quite a few squishy deaths :-(
