Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten, a pending free agent, said Saturday he remains undecided on retirement and is realistic about possibly finishing his career with another team.
Huddle Up: The future Hall of Famer did finish 12th among fantasy tight ends (76.9 total points) last season at age 37, but his TE1 days are behind him, and it's hard to imagine him starting over with another team if the Cowboys don't bring him back.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten has a $375,000 contract incentive that can be earned if he has at least 55 receptions this season and the team reaches the playoffs, according to multiple sources. He has already caught 59 passes but the team needs a victory versus the Washington Redskins in Week 17 and a loss by the Philadelphia Eagles to the New York Giants in order to earn a berth in the postseason.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten logged four receptions, 36 yards and a touchdown during the team's 44-21 victory over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 15.
Huddle Up: There isn't much athleticism left in Witten at this point, but he can still make the odd highlight-worthy play, and his impressive one-handed TD grab was just that. While the yardage clearly isn't there any longer, Witten still provides a little value, particularly in PPR formats.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten had five receptions for 37 yards on Thursday, Dec. 5, against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: After starting off fairly well, Witten has now averaged fewer than 10 yards per catch in seven straight games, scoring just once during that time. Witten might have a little fringe appeal in PPR leagues, but that's his ceiling.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten caught six of his eight targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 loss to the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: It was Witten's first touchdown since he started the season with scores in back-to-back weeks. He's still far from a reliable threat who needs to reach the end zone in order to return any meaningful fantasy value.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten caught two passes for 17 yards against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Nov. 10.
Huddle Up: Witten offered some hope early with a couple of TD catches, and he has retained a little PPR value since. He looked every day of 37 years old Sunday night, however, and the contrast between him and Blake Jarwin was stark. You have to wonder if the team wouldn't be better off with more of Jarwin and less of the veteran.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten posted eight receptions for 58 yards on nine targets in Week 9 against the New York Giants on Monday, Nov. 4.
Huddle Up: Witten has posted three receptions in every one of his eight games since returning from the television booth. While has hasn't scored a touchdown in the past six outings, he isn't a bad streaming option in PPR leagues, with lesser value in standard play. The Cowboys host the Vikings in Week 10.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten hauled in all four of his targets for 33 yards in Week 7 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Witten has made exactly four catches in six of seven games since coming out of his one-year retirement. He possesses virtually no fantasy upside, but his floor at a position that lacks much in the way of high-floor plays makes him worthy of a fantasy start most weeks in deeper leagues. Witten has tormented the New York Giants throughout his career, and he'll get another chance to do so in Week 9 after Dallas returns from its bye week.
