Witten broke out of his extended slump last weekend, though could have a bit more difficulty finding room at New Orleans on Sunday. The Saints are allowing the fifth-fewest passing yards per game in the NFL this season.
The New Orleans defense has also allowed just eight passing touchdowns in eight games in 2013, which is third in the league and a vast improvement from a season ago. If Witten is your starting tight end, you're likely playing him anyway, and there always remains the possibility that this contest turns into a shootout. However, be aware that he may not be able to build off his eight-catch, 102-yard, one-touchdown performance from last Sunday.
