Fantasy Analysis
Week 12 Projections
It seems like it's been a decade since Witten caught a touchdown. Carolina limited one of the better tight ends in the league last week in Jordan Reed to under 50 yards and no scores. Witten could be asked to block more often than running routes if Carolina creates consist pressure on Romo.
Receiving: 5 Receptions, 52 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Witten will be 33 years old this season and saw his lowest reception total since 2006 last year. He hasn't topped 1,000 receiving yards since 2012. That being said, he still managed to post five touchdowns and finish as a top ten fantasy tight end in 2014. He remains basically the only tight end option for Dallas as he played 471 more snaps than the other tight ends combined and saw 82% of the targets for the position. It doesn't appear that his role in the offense is going to diminish any more than it has and another top ten scoring finish surely isn't out of the question.

Receiving: 72 Receptions, 775 Yards, 6 TD.

Dallas Cowboys Team Talk
Do the Cowboys deliberately draft the stupidest players?????
Really??? After having one teammate kill another while driving drunk you would think no one on this team would do ...
Can I punch Orlando Scandrick??
Seriously. I REALLY want to...in the face......
Cowboys website
Found this Cowboys website, many of you probably have already seen it, I like it, passing it on.  
Cowgirls deserve to lose
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
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.
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
Excellent TE for PPR, yardage and TDs.
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
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.
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)
