Jason Witten caught four balls for 37 yards and two touchdowns in the Cowboys' Week 12 win over the Giants.

Both of Tony Romo's TD passes were good to Witten in the red zone. Witten has now scored four times across two 2013 meetings with the G-Men. Keep leaning on Witten as a mid-range TE1 when the Cowboys play Oakland in Week 13.

Jason Witten caught two passes for 27 yards in Sunday night's Week 10 loss to the Saints.

Witten was targeted a team-high six times, but wasn't able to get anything going with Tony Romo. He's now been held under 50 yards six times this season and continues to struggles with his consistency. Witten is averaging just 4.7 catches for 53.2 yards over his first 10 games and will be just a low-end TE1 when the Cowboys come out of their bye in Week 12.

Jason Witten caught two passes for 15 yards in Dallas' Week 8 loss to the Lions.

Bizarrely, Witten's two grabs were his only targets. Both the catches and looks were new season lows. Averaging just 4.6 catches for 50.4 yards, Witten is shaping up as a low-end TE1. That being said, he has an appetizing Week 9 matchup in the Vikings.

Jason Witten caught three passes for 27 yards in Sunday night's Week 6 win over Washington.

He was targeted five times in the passing game. Witten took a step back after going off for 121 yards and a touchdown last week, but his lack of involvement was more the result of the Cowboys playing conservative in the second half. Witten has 31 catches for 340 yards and three touchdowns through six games and will remain a TE1 in Week 7 against the Eagles.

Jason Witten caught five passes for 43 yards in Dallas' Week 4 loss to the Chargers.

Witten's latest quiet day came even though he drew a team-leading 10 targets, and the Cowboys were without Miles Austin. With 25 percent of the season in the books, Witten is on pace for just 84 catches, 768 yards and eight touchdowns. He's yet to surpass 70 yards in a game. Witten has hardly fallen off a cliff, but is looking like he'll be a lower-end TE1 instead of the high-end one he was in 2012.

Jason Witten led the Cowboys with his five catches for 67 yards in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Rams.

With the Cowboys running the ball successfully, the passing game didn't have to produce much. The Cowboys were up 24-0 early in the third quarter. They just sat on the ball and drained the clock thereafter. Most of the starters were resting on the sideline early in the fourth quarter. Witten and the Cowboys go to San Diego in Week 4.

Jason Witten caught three passes for 12 yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Chiefs.

The Chiefs left Dez Bryant in one-on-one coverage for much of the day, trusting Brandon Flowers. It resulted in far less open spaces for both Witten and Miles Austin (three catches for 31 yards). Witten's eight targets did rank second on the team behind Dez, but the 12 yards are his lowest since Week 3 of last year. Witten can still be trusted as a mediocre TE1 against the Rams in Week 3.

Jason Witten had eight catches for 70 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Witten had both of the Cowboys' touchdowns and took advantage of a mismatch with Mark Herzlich in the second half. After finishing with just three touchdowns last season, he's finally being emphasized more in the red-zone offense. He didn't have any drops and secured eight of his nine targets.
