Jason Witten found his way into the season opener after he wasn't even expected to suit up in Week 1. We break down the fantasy implications.

After remaining in jeopardy of not playing the regular season opener for several weeks, Jason Witten suited up and played against the Giants on Wednesday night. He finished with just two receptions for 10 yards total.

Fantasy Impact: The fact that Witten chose to play tells a lot about this guy. He clearly cares more about the success of his team than his well-being, which benefits fantasy owners more. Witten was never going to make a huge impact in Week 1, but his progress will need to be monitored closely leading up to next week's game.
