Cowboys Vs. Bills: Jason Witten Week 10 Fantasy Football Projection

The Dallas Cowboys offense is one of the more explosive in the NFL and thus makes nearly all their number one starters at the skill position a starter for one's league. Tight Jason Witten is no exception and he is one of the top tight ends for fantasy football.

Witten could see more targets since Miles Austin is out of this game and that is one reason why he is the No. 3 projected player according to numberFire. Also, Witten has had good success against AFC East teams this year and should continue against the Bills who have a poor pass defense.

Witten has not had the yards this year, but has been able to counter that with more touchdowns:

Witten's yardage might be down the last month after totaling 272 yards in three October games. But what he is failing to achieve in yards, Witten is making up for with touchdowns. He has scored in four of his last five games, and continues to be one of Tony Romo's most reliable targets. Witten had 110 yards in Week 1 against the Jets and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Patriots, so he has fared well against the AFC East. Keep Witten active as a No. 1 Fantasy TE.
