After three straight sub-par performances, Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten reminded fantasy owners why they drafted him Sunday, catching eight passes for 102 yards in the Cowboys' 27-23 victory over the Minnesota Vikings.
Witten caught nine passes total for 90 yards the last three weeks, with the team leaning more on wide receivers Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams. Sunday, Witten was the team's leading receiver -- both in yards and receptions -- and his 26-yard touchdown in the third quarter put the team ahead, 13-10.
Fantasy impact: This has been Witten's season -- a good game, some rough outings, then repeat. This is Witten's standard game-by-game fantasy scoring this season:
In theory, he's still a stud tight end, but the consistent production just hasn't been there. In the long run, Witten will probably be fine, though he's been frustrating owner so far. Regardless, he's a TE1.
