Jason Witten explodes in record-setting Week 8 performance: Fantasy Implications

US PRESSWIRE

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten explodes in Week 8 with record-setting performance. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten had a monster day, in a record-breaking performance versus the New York Giants. In the Week 8 divisional match-up, Witten had a franchise-best 18 receptions for 167 yards receiving. The All-Pro pass-catcher was all over the field as Romo's go-to target.

Witten has been the model professional. Despite the team's woes in Week 8, Witten continued to go hard for his team, displaying a valiant effort.

Fantasy Analysis: Witten pleased fantasy owners everywhere when he broke out in Week 8. The tight end had some concerns earlier in the season when it came to his health, but reestablished his prestige among the NFL's tight ends. Witten had nearly 20 receptions and 200 yards, which are staggering numbers, especially for a tight end.

If this isn't reason enough to start Witten week in and week out, I'm not sure what is. When healthy, the Dallas Cowboys tight end belongs in your starting lineup.
