2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jun-30-2014 by Larry Gold

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.
