Witten caught 5-of-7 targets for 63 yards in Sunday's 24-20 win over the Lions.

Witten put together a solid first half, catching three passes for 41 yards, while the rest of the Dallas offense struggled. The team got things going shortly before halftime, and the targets were spread around to a few different players, with Cole Beasley's eight leading the way. Witten and the Dallas offense get a more favorable matchup next week, facing the Packers in what could be a high-scoring game.

Witten caught four passes on six targets for 49 yards in Sunday's win over Washington.

The 32-year-old tight end finished the season with his worst output since he was a rookie, catching 64 passes on 90 targets for 703 yards and five TDs, and the years appear to be catching up to him. Those are still good numbers, but well below what his fantasy owners likely paid for at the draft table, and Witten's days on being ranked among the top TEs are likely over.

Witten was targeted a team-high seven times in Sunday's 42-7 win over the Colts, finishing with seven catches for 90 yards and a touchdown.

Witten's third-quarter touchdown sprung the Cowboys to a 35-0 lead and sent many of the starters to the bench to enjoy the rest of the blowout from the sidelines. His 90 yards were a season high, so congrats if he helped spring you to to a Week 16 championship. If you're continuing on to Week 17, keep in mind that the Cowboys may be out of the running for a first-round bye depending on the result of the Sunday night game, so there is a chance that some of the starters will play limited snaps next Sunday against Washington.

Witten caught 7-of-9 targets for 69 yards in Sunday's 38-27 win over the Eagles.

Witten got off to a fast start, catching three passes for 42 yards on the Cowboys' second drive of the game. While mostly limited to short gains thereafter, he still finished with season-high marks in receptions and targets, falling one yard short of the 70 he recorded in Week 8. It was a nice showing from the veteran tight end, but he had just seven receptions for 64 yards over the previous three games. Owners should thus keep expectations in check for Week 16 against the Colts.

Witten caught 2-of-3 targets for 26 yards in Thursday's 41-28 win over the Bears.

The target Witten didn't catch hit his hands, although a poor throw by Tony Romo made it a difficult ball to haul in. 18 of Romo's 26 pass attempts went in the direction of Dez Bryant and DeMarco Murray, as the Cowboys' superstars dominated the offense to an even greater extent than usual. Witten should be more involved in the coming weeks, but he's still just the third option in an offense that's heavily reliant on its two best players.

Witten caught one pass for eight yards in Thursday's loss to the Eagles.

Witten had scored in three of four games entering Thursday's contest, but he was held out of the end zone, and almost kept off the score sheet entirely. He will look to bounce back next week against a Bears team that has been consistently beaten by opposing tight ends this season.

Witten caught 4-of-6 targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-28 win over the Giants.

Witten found the end zone for a fourth time in the last six games, after failing to score in his first five appearances of the season. He still hasn't topped six receptions, eight targets or 70 receiving yards in any one game, but he has been pretty consistent since getting off to a slow start.

Witten had five catches on seven targets for 33 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Jaguars in London.

Witten has now scored a touchdown in alternating games since Week 6, though he's been particularly active of late, getting 22 targets in the last three weeks. Fantasy owners will have to look for an alternative in Week 11, however, as the Cowboys head out on bye before taking on the Giants in Week 12.

Witten had six catches on seven targets for 62 yards Sunday against the Cardinals.

With Tony Romo sidelined with a back injury, Witten set a season-high in receptions from backup quarterback Brandon Weeden, who relied heavily on the veteran tight end. Witten hasn't been overly productive this season, scoring only two touchdowns and failing to reach even 75 yards in a game this season, and while there is a small possibility that Romo returns next week against the Jaguars in London, Witten's fantasy value doesn't appear to be greatly affected by whoever is under center.
