Strength of Schedule
Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the TE position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Fantasy Analysis
Two touchdowns over two weeks is a lot to like. This should be a high scoring duel as all Dallas options should be active on Turkey day.
Receiving: 5 Receptions, 58 Yards, 1 TD.

Witten hasn't missed a regular season game since his rookie year back in 2003. And while his receptions and receiving yards were the lowest since 2006, his eight touchdowns were the second most of his career. There's something to be said for consistency and with Tony Romo expected to be fully recovered from late-December back surgery, look for Witten to remain a very solid TE1 as he continues his role as Tony Romo's go-to receiver.

Receiving: 72 Receptions, 775 Yards, 6 TD.

Dallas Cowboys Team Talk
Really??? After having one teammate kill another while driving drunk you would think no one on this team would do ...
 
Seriously. I REALLY want to...in the face......
 
Found this Cowboys website, many of you probably have already seen it, I like it, passing it on.  
Ok, why on gods green earth would you take the ball out of your best players hands? Murray has been the focal point of your offfense getting at least 4 catches a game and running for about 100 yards, yet you put in fragile felix. WHY? HE ...
 
Never thought this would happen but I must admit I've got a man crush on a Cowboy :shock: as a die hard Packer fan you must be able to understand how ...

Draft Analysis
Round 4, Pick 3
Positives
I've got Witten projected as TE1 this year with 80/900/6 receiving. He's coming off consecutive 1000 yard seasons and has finished as TE1 or TE2 in 3 of the last 4 seasons.
Negatives
Bryant and Austin are emerging as options for Romo and may reduce the number of targets Witten has gotten in the past.
Draft Strategy
With 2 good RBs and one of the top 3 QBs in Brady, and with Gates already going at 3.05, decided having the TE1 was the way to go. Remaining WRs all look about the same so no hurry there. (Contributed by: dmcduke)

Round 5, Pick 4
Positives
Excellent TE for PPR, yardage and TDs.
Negatives
Hope Romo uses him like Kitna did last year.
Draft Strategy
Many mock drafts have him going in the 4th round; happy to get him here in the 5th. (Contributed by: tlandavazo)

Round 4, Pick 2
Positives
Solid player that has the trust of his coach, QB, and the rest of the team. Witten is a hard worker that is a team player. Witten is the go to guy when a first down or a TD is needed. With Roy Williams gone Dez Bryant shouldn't be working the middle of the field as often leaving room for Witten to roam. Witten was the #1 TE last year. He was the only TE to break 1,000 yards. Witten is also the only top teir TE that didn't miss time last year. I would not feel comfortable reaching for Gates, Finley or Dallas Clark.
Negatives
The homer in me is happy to say I don't see any negatives in Witten :)
Draft Strategy
I reached for Witten. I was hoping to start a TE run that didn't happen. I felt my starting RBs locked up, plenty of start worthy QBs, a great WR1 and some decent WR targets that I could afford to reach for my homer pick. (Contributed by: 625james)
