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.

Witten caught 5-of-8 targets for 70 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 20-17 overtime loss to the Redskins.

After catching four balls for 45 yards in the first half, Witten made his lone second-half reception count, taking it 25 yards for a touchdown. It was rather surprising that he led the Cowboys in targets, as he previously hadn't topped seven targets, five receptions or 61 yards in any game this season. The touchdown was just his second in eight games, and while Witten's still capable of putting together decent performances, one big night doesn't change the reality that he's seeing far fewer looks than in recent seasons.

Witten saw just two targets on Sunday, catching both for 27 yards.

He remains Mr. Reliable when Tony Romo looks his way, but Witten's just not a big part of the Cowboys' passing attack this season. Don't be afraid to cut him loose and find a more useful tight end on the waiver wire.

Witten caught two passes on five targets for 24 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Seahawks.

The score, his first of the season, salvaged what would otherwise have been a quiet fantasy day. Incidentally, the TD catch was the 900th of Witten's Hall of Fame career.

Witten caught four passes on five targets for 59 yards on Sunday, becoming the third tight end in NFL history to reach the 10,000 receiving yard plateau.

He joins Tony Gonzalez and Shannon Sharpe in that elite club, and sometime in the next week or two he should pass Sharpe for second place on the all-time tight end receiving yard list. Witten's on pace for his lowest totals in targets (90), catches (61) and yards (688) since his 2003 rookie season, however, so while his achievements will almost certainly land him in the Hall of Fame someday, in the fantasy here and now Witten's become just another guy.
