Witten had 18 receptions in a game against the Giants last year and while he is unlikely to duplicate that effort, he should easily be one of the five most productive tight ends to open the season.

As stated above, the drop-off this season after Graham is sizeable. Witten will see plenty of targets in Dallas, as his chemistry with Romo is known.

Witten had his monstrous 18 catch 167 yard game against the Giants last year and I look for his success to continue in what is likely going to be a shoot out
Not a huge gamble by me but I think Thomas contributes Thursday night against a revamped Ravens defense
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
He's at home pretty much their #2 receiver, so he's good for solid production.

While Dez Bryant and Miles Austin always remain threats to take away targets. It is clear that Tony Romo loves Jason Witten more than he ever cared about Jessica Simpson. If Romo can get Witten the ball, he will. If Witten was as athletic as Gronk or Graham, he would be the #1 option on this list.
