Witten’s decision to un-retire means he’ll (probably) return to a limited role and split snaps with incumbent contributors Blake Jarwin and Dalton Schultz.
Of course, the Cowboys could decide to have Witten return to the near-every-down role he had for a large portion of his career from 2003-2017.
It’s not like Witten, now 37, ever made a habit of winning with speed. He gained more than 60 receiving yards in only 4-of-33 games with Dak Prescott while scoring nine touchdowns in 2016 and 2017 combined. He’s nothing more than an inconsistent flyer as a standalone fantasy option, but his early-season usage will be important to monitor when projecting Ezekiel Elliott’s workload as a receiver. — Ian Hartitz
