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.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten posted five receptions for 57 yards on seven targets in Week 6 against the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: Witten has three or more grabs in each of his six games since returning from a one-year retirement, and he has four or more targets in each outing. He isn't a great fantasy option, but not a bad bye-week replacement if you need one. The Cowboys host the Eagles in Week 7.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten caught three passes for 29 yards in Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: A couple early TDs put Witten back on the map for fantasy owners this season, but it's clear he's pretty far down the pecking order in Dallas and only returns decent fantasy value when he scores. That's a tough sell most weeks.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten caught four passes for a team-high 50 yards against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Sept. 29. He also lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: With all due respect to Witten, it's not a good sign when a 37-year-old with zero speed is leading your team in receiving yardage. The veteran made a couple of nice grabs, but his uncharacteristic fumble was a killer. He remains a solid TE2 that can cover a bye or a particularly tough matchup for your starter.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten finished with three receptions for 54 yards on four targets in Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Witten has managed at least three receptions and four targets in all three of his outings since returning from the television booth. Sunday marked his most productive in terms of yardage, but he failed to find the end zone for the first time in 2019. He remains more of a TE2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 4 against the New Orleans Saints.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten caught three passes for 15 yards and a touchdown on Sunday, Sept. 8, against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: It was a nice story for Witten to come out of retirement and score a touchdown, but at 37 the team is going to picks its spots with the veteran, leaving him without sustainable fantasy appeal.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten said he experienced some jitters Saturday, Aug. 17, as he made his return to live action for the first time since ending his one-year retirement. Witten caught one pass for 10 yards in the Cowboys' preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams. 'A year away from the game, all the work to get back here since March, getting in shape, getting your body ready, having an opportunity, I know I've got a lot to prove,' Witten said. 'It wasn't perfect. I thought we're on schedule with the things I want to work on. Able to get a third-down conversion. Dak showed he had the confidence on that. Some of the other things in the passing game, running game, I felt good with. It's always tricky when you're coming back out here ... so the jitters were real. A lot of work to get back to here, but it felt good.'
Huddle Up: Witten's return to the Cowboys will mean a lot more in reality than fantasy, where he isn't a consideration outside of super-deep and tight end-premium leagues.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten 'hasn't lost a step' after taking a year off, according to QB Dak Prescott. 'I guess the trick is to take a year off because he's definitely gotten better, stronger and faster,' Prescott said.
Huddle Up: Witten could still be a reliable underneath target and red zone option for Prescott, but the veteran is expected to play limited snaps. At best, he's a touchdown-dependent TE2.
