Summary

When Jason Witten retired last year, it surprised many, until we found out he was being given the ultimate broadcasting job immediately - a seat in the Monday Night Football booth. Unfortunately, Witten's inexperience showed and he was subject of constant criticism. Whether that played a role in his decision to return to the gridiron is unclear, but either way, the future Hall of Famer will be suiting up for Dallas again. Witten is 37 years old and is best suited as a part-time player, but keep in mind his 2017 totals (63 receptions for 560 yards and five touchdowns) far outstripped anything the tight ends did last year. Blake Jarwin led the team with 27 receptions for 307 yards and three touchdowns, and he'll still have a role this year even if Witten out snaps him. Witten is, at best, a matchup play in redraft leagues. (May 2)
