2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Witten put together what can only be described as another Witten-like fantasy performance in 2011. The talented Cowboys tight end once again had a season heavy on yards but a little disappointing in the touchdown category. He finished the season as the 6th ranked fantasy tight end with 79 receptions for 942 yards and five touchdowns. Unfortunately for his fantasy owners, he stumbled down the stretch, gaining just 272 yards and failing to find the end zone over the final six weeks of the season. The question is whether Witten is slowing down at age 30 or he simply lost touches in the passing game to the hot hand of third wide receiver Laurent Robinson? With Robinson now in Jacksonville and the Cowboys failing to sign a proven receiver to replace him, Witten should get plenty of targets in 2012 and more red zone looks than he had last season. Another 1,000 receiving yard season with six to eight touchdowns seems to be in order for Witten in 2012 and that should make him a top five fantasy player at the tight end position.

Comment: Witten suffered an injury to his spleen during the Cowboys first preseason game.

Cowboys could get creative with Witten     -- Thu Aug 14 5:30 pm --

Romo hints that TE will see time in the slot
Cowboys QB Tony Romo said that ideally, with the offensive line looking so good, he hopes the Cowboys can get TE Jason Witten out in space more and not have to use him as much to help pass protect. The Cowboys were running an abundance of screens as well, and seem to be favoring that element more. (CBS Sports)

FF Today's Take: It is an interesting notion that helped Tony Gonzalez remain so productive in his later years. While Witten isn't quite the athlete Gonzalez is, there should be plenty of opportunities across the middle of the field with Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams occupying so much defensive attention. As per usual, Witten should remain a PPR force.
