Summary

Jason Witten could hang up his cleats today and stroll into the Hall of Fame. He's currently 10th all-time in receptions, and stands a great chance to end this season 5th (overtaking the likes of Terrell Owens and Tim Brown in the process). Among tight ends, he's 2nd in yards and receptions, and trails only four other men in touchdowns. But fantasy owners are more concerned about whether Witten still has value in 2016 and beyond. The answer? OF COURSE. If someone tells you that Jason Witten lost a step last year, remind them that the Cowboys offense fell from 5th in points in 2014 to 31st last year and that Witten had to deal with Tony Romo missing 12 games, Dez Bryant being gimpy, and the ground game being less consistent than in 2014 when DeMarco Murray led the league. Witten remains a sure-handed, strong and smart receiver that will move the changes and be Tony Romo's safety valve. He may not be a Top 5 fantasy tight end, but he's a lot closer to that then his current ADP suggests. (May 21)
