Summary

Jason Witten will wear a Hall of Fame jacket in a few years. The 10-time Pro Bowler enters the season 7th all-time in receptions, and is only 14 receptions shy of passing Marvin Harrison for 4th place. Fantasy owners don't care about Witten's past as much as what he's going to do this year, and based on early ADP data, Witten remains one of the best late round values in the hobby. He's not the player he once was, but the peripheral stats argue for continued productivity. Dak Prescott connected with Witten 73% of the time, in-line with Witten's catch rate in the Tony Romo era. Witten has never been a volume scorer, and has just 11 touchdowns over the last three seasons. In PPR leagues, Witten is a low end TE1 that can be had for TE2 cost. In standard leagues, Witten is more of a priority free agent and bye week option. (July 15)
