2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jun-30-2014 by Larry Goldstein

Jason WItten has been the most consistent, durable fantasy tight end spanning the last decade. At 32 years old, his best years are behind him (as evidenced by his 2013 output being hislowest since 2006). Witten managed to find the end zone eight times, but saw a significant falloff in targets (111, down from a three-year avg. of 132), receptions and yards. Even with the declining stat line, Witten ranked fifth amongst tight ends in receptions (73) and yards (851), making him the obvious starter going into 2014. Tony Romo and Witten have a fine-tuned chemistry not easily replicated, but the concern is that Witten's body is starting to slow after playing 10 years without missing a game. Gavin Escobar is being groomed to eventually take over for Witten, but even if the transition picks up speed, Witten will still be worthy of his current draft position (ADP 78.02) as the seventh tight end selected. Draft Witten while maintaining slightly downgraded expectations and be sure to have Escobar on speed dial should Witten hit the fantasy wall.

2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1

2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
5.03 Gridiron Experts - What was I saying about me avoiding tight ends? Never mind that. We're conservatively projecting Witten at around a 90-1100-5 clip, making him roughly the same value of a top 20 wide receiver in a PPR format. When ScoutPro selfishly stole Pierre Garcon right in front of me, I went ahead and nabbed my TE4 to play in a flex spot.

5.02 CBSSports - The downside with Witten is he doesn't score touchdowns. The upside is he had 110 catches last season and at least 94 catches in three of the past four years. He's a volume tight end, and if he somehow manages an extra touchdown or two this season he's going to challenge for being the best player at his position.

July 9th, 2013
6.01 KFFL - Tim - Until Dallas develops a stable WR3, Witten will command elite PPR numbers. His touchdown total might not reach 10, but he'll be good for double-digit points most weeks. Along the same lines of the Brees pick -- the market was deflated, so I took advantage.
