Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten had a performance for the ages in Week 8. Against the New York Giants, Witten hauled in an incredible 18 catches for 167 yards, setting the record for most receptions in a single game by a tight end. That record was previously held by...Jason Witten. The guy's pretty good, is what I'm saying.
Ultimately, his effort went for naught, as the Cowboys lost 29-24 behind back-breaking turnovers.
Fantasy Impact: What else can I possibly add here? Witten was amazing, and continues to prove himself as one of the best fantasy TEs in the league. His spleen scare at the beginning of the season is a distant memory as he keeps producing.
Witten will have a tough fantasy matchup against the Falcons in Week 9, but there's no reason for fantasy owners to worry about him. Keep locking him in as a TE1.
