Witten caught all seven pass attempts thrown his way for 59 yards in Sunday's 27-7 loss to the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

The seven targets were the most Witten has seen since he saw eight in Week 5. All of them came while Atlanta was in the prevent defense with two coming in the final 90 seconds of the first half and the final five late in the fourth quarter after the game was out of hand. It will be tough to count on the 35-year-old for continued production against the Eagles in Week 11.

Witten caught his only target for five yards in Sunday's win over the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Dak Prescott fired the vast majority of his passes to his wide receivers in this one, leaving little left over for Witten. It's the third time this season he's been held to single digits in receiving yards, and there's no guarantee he'll be able to rebound next week on the road against a Falcons defense that's been even tougher this season than the Chiefs against opposition tight ends.

Witten caught three of his five targets for 31 yards in Sunday's win over Washington.

EDGE Analysis

He didn't see a lot of action on a wet, rainy night, but the same could be said for the entire Cowboys passing game. Witten's currently on pace for a season very similar to what he's produced in recent years, but he could see an uptick in usage over the next six games with Ezekiel Elliott being forced to serve his six-game suspension.

Witten caught all four of his targets for 54 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 40-10 rout of the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

An inexperienced Niners linebacking corps wasn't able to keep the wily veteran from doing maximum damage with the opportunities he got in a blowout win. While Witten's yards per target continues to dwindle with age, he's on pace for 82 catches on 112 targets, which would be his highest totals since 2012, and that volume is keeping him relevant even in shallower fantasy formats.

Witten caught eight of 10 targets for 61 yards in Sunday's 35-31 loss to Green Bay.

EDGE Analysis

Witten started the season off hot with 17 catches and two scores in the team's first two games. He managed just two catches total in Weeks 3 and 4 before bouncing back on Sunday. It's hard to tell this early in the season which is the real Witten, but after 15 seasons, history appears to be on his side.

Witten caught one of two targets for nine yards in Sunday's loss to the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

After scoring in each of the first two games of the season, Witten has been held in check in the last two, tallying only two catches for 12 yards on six targets. Things may not get any better for the veteran next week against a Packers defense that's given up only 12 catches for 106 yards and no TDs to tight ends through four games.

Witten caught just one of four targets for three yards in Monday's win over the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

He threw some big blocks in the second half to open holes for Ezekiel Elliott, but the veteran tight end didn't do much to pad his own stat line. Witten could be kept close to the line to block again in Week 4 against a dangerous Rams front seven, potentially capping his targets and fantasy ceiling.

Witten caught 10 of 13 passes for 97 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

Dallas' all-time leader in catches and receiving yards added another franchise record to his tally when he passed Ed "Too Tall" Jones and played in his 225th game as a Cowboy. Witten also leapfrogged Cris Carter and Marvin Harrison to take fourth place on the NFL's career receptions leaderboard with 1,106. The future Hall of Famer has had a great start to the 2017 season, and with a number of top tight ends getting hurt already this year, he looks like a very safe fantasy harbor heading into next week's road game against the Cardinals.

Witten caught seven of nine targets for 59 yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys' 19-3 victory over the Giants on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

An 11-yard catch in the second quarter was enough to push Witten past Michael Irvin for the Cowboys' all-time record for receiving yardage. The veteran tight end ultimately finished his memorable night tied with Dez Bryant for the lead in targets and still appears to be a key cog in the passing attack entering his 15th season in the league. Next week will likely bring tougher sledding, though, as the Cowboys travel to Denver to face a Broncos defense that finished first against the pass last year.

Witten has been forced to take more days off during training camp this year by the Cowboys coaching staff than in previous seasons, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Heading into his 15th (!) NFL campaign, Witten remains in excellent shape for a 35-year-old. "He does not want to take those days off," offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said Wednesday. "He's just listening and trusting the people that are giving him advice from not only coaches but the trainers and everybody else. I think that's helped. ... He doesn't just show up and get himself in shape in camp. You should see the guy, how he works. I know you guys do but the way he prepares to get himself ready for camp, I mean it's a year-round thing for him. And I've never seen a professional that's as professional about his job as Jason." Witten's 673 receiving yards in 2016 were his lowest total since his rookie year, but the chemistry he's developed with Dak Prescott should allow him to remain a dependable option when the Cowboys need to move the chains, even if he won't stretch the field or be a big factor in the red zone. There's little fantasy ceiling left with the future Hall of Famer, but provided Father Time doesn't catch up to him all at once, his floor remains fairly secure.
