Jason Witten all-in for 2018

Pro Football Talk is reporting Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten is committed to playing football in 2018.

Fantasy Impact

Although Witten auditioned for a role with Thursday Night Football and garnered interest from Fox Sports, Witten quickly cleared the air and said that he is not only committed to playing in 2018, but he also intends to remain on the field until he turns 40. The future Hall of Fame tight end, who is entering his age-36 season, has been one of the most durable players in the NFL since entering the league in 2003. And while he put up the fewest amount of yards (560) since his rookie year last season, he still caught 63 passes and scored his most touchdowns (five) since 2014. From a fantasy perspective, he may not be the same player as he was in the past, but he remains a quality streamer in standard formats, a solid option in PPR scoring formats and a fine No. 2 option in tight end premium leagues.

Jason Witten with two catches in 2017 finale

Jason Witten caught two of three targets for 17 yards on Sunday against the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Witten certainly didn't have a great year, though he showed that he still has a bit left in the tank. He stated after the game that he intends to return for the 2018 season, so he'll be potentially relevant in extremely deep leagues or those that award bonus points to tight ends.

Jason Witten with five catches against Seahawks

Jason Witten caught five of nine targets for 39 yards on Sunday against the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

Witten was more involved than usual, but still couldn't provide much value outside of PPR leagues. The Dallas offense has simply struggled to remain consistent, making Witten only a borderline start each week. That will be the case next weekend against Philadelphia.

Jason Witten catches four passes vs OAK

Jason Witten caught four passes for 47 yards in the win over the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact

Witten has been involved in the passing game much, but he's still getting a few catches here and there. He's not worth starting even in great matchups.

Jason Witten catches a touchdown in win over the Giants

Jason Witten caught one pass which was a 20 yards touchdown.

Fantasy Impact

Death, taxes and TE's scoring against the Giants. Witten hasn't done much lately, but it everyone knew he would score against this defense. He's not worth playing, even in great matchups like this one.
