Jason Witten TE DAL 4 Days1 Comment

Witten caught four passes on seven targets for 32 yards in Sunday's win over the Titans.

He's been fairly quiet through two weeks, as the Cowboys have hitched their wagon to DeMarco Murray and a talented young offensive line rather than Tony Romo's arm. The club figures to be in some shootouts sooner or later though, but you may want to consider Witten as more of a matchup-based play rather than an every-week starter.

Witten was targeted six times during Sunday's loss to the 49ers, but caught just two passes for 14 yards.

Tony Romo looked very rusty in Week 1 after seeing limited snaps in the preseason, so blame Witten's poor fantasy performance on his QB. He was still tied for second in targets with Dez Bryant behind Terrance Williams' seven, so despite the concerns about his age it's way too early to give up on Witten just yet.

Witten caught just one pass for 11 yards in Saturday's preseason game.

The aging warrior will still be a big part of the Cowboys' passing game this season, but second year wide receiver Terrance Williams could end up surpassing Witten as Tony Romo's second-favorite target sooner rather than later.

Jason Witten caught just two passes for 13 yards in Sunday's Week 16 win at Washington.

Witten was oddly targeted just twice even though Dez Bryant saw consistent double teams. Perhaps we shouldn't be too surprised. Witten has seen three targets or less in three of the last four games and is averaging just 4.0 catches on the season. The Cowboys would be wise to get Witten more involved when they face the Eagles with a playoff spot on the line in Week 17.

Jason Witten caught four passes for 71 yards and a touchdown in Dallas' Week 15 loss to the Packers.

Witten took advantage of some abysmal tackling on his 25-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Witten is well off his 2012 pace in catches and yards, but now has four touchdowns over his past four games. He'll remain a mid-range TE1 for the final week of the fantasy playoffs.

Jason Witten caught a ten-yard touchdown in Week 14 against the Bears.

Witten was targeted three times on the night. It was an extremely disappointing effort against a defense that struggles mightily versus opposing tight ends. Witten may have been hurt, but the team didn't report anything. James Hanna and Gavin Escobar saw more work than usual it seemed. Witten will be back on the TE1 map next week in a tasty home date with the Packers.

Jason Witten caught three balls for 53 yards in the Cowboys' Week 13 win over the Raiders.

It was a surprisingly quiet night for the entire Dallas pass game, which has now scuffled two weeks in a row following its Week 11 bye. For its part, the Raiders' defense has been fairly stingy in tight end coverage this season. Look for Witten to bounce back in a cake Week 14 matchup with Chicago.
