Cowboys | Jason Witten to play in 2018

Tue, 02 Jan 2018 22:25:48 -0800

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten will return for his 16th NFL season in 2018.

Fantasy Tip: There was some speculation that Witten, who will turn 36 this May, would call it a career, but he put that to rest following the team's Week 17 win over Philadelphia. Witten is a steady possession target and solid blocker, but he hasn't been an explosive option for years now and is, at best, a late-round reserve with no upside.

Cowboys | Jason Witten scores in road win

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 17:30:53 -0800

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten had just one reception in Week 14 against the New York Giants but it was good for a 20-yard touchdown reception.

Fantasy Tip: Witten has been limited to one catch in four of his past six outings. The good news is he has found the end zone in two straight games, but he is a very risky fantasy option heading into Week 15 due to his inconsistency lately.

Cowboys | Jason Witten makes only catch count

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 13:43:15 -0800

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten caught one pass for 20 yards and one touchdown against the New York Giants in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Witten has been limited to one catch in four of the last six games but does have a touchdown in each of the last two games. He should be owned in all leagues but may only be a starting option against favorable matchups.

Cowboys | Jason Witten poised for success?

Sat, 09 Dec 2017 19:34:29 -0800

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten faces the New York Giants in Week 14, and when he faced the Giants in Week 1, he finished with seven catches for 59 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants have been one of the worst teams in the league when it comes to defending tight ends, and Witten exploited the matchup the first time around. If you need to stream a tight end in Week 14, Witten could be worth a look.

Cowboys | Jason Witten scores in win

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 20:54:51 -0800

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten caught one pass, an eight-yard touchdown, in a 38-14 win over the Washington Redskins Thursday, Nov. 30.

Fantasy Tip: It was Witten's first touchdown in more than a month, but it marked the third time in the last five games that he has been held to just a single catch. He is a low-end TE2.

Cowboys | Jason Witten sets record

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 18:40:42 -0800

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten caught all seven of his targets for 44 yards in a 28-6 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers Thursday, Nov. 23, setting a record for most career receiving yards on Thanksgiving with 853.

Fantasy Tip: Witten has two one-catch games and two seven-catch performances over the last four weeks, and he remains a low-end backup in PPR formats.

Cowboys | Jason Witten moves up team list

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 19:16:47 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten posted four receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers. With the score, Witten broke a tie with Michael Irvin for sole possession of third-place on the club's all-time receiving touchdowns list.

Fantasy Tip: Witten has posted 54 or more yards in four of his six outings and he has scored three times. After a couple of poor performances it appears Witten can once again be trusted as a low-end TE1 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 8 against the Redskins.

Cowboys | Jason Witten top receiver in Week 5

Mon, 09 Oct 2017 04:41:18 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten caught eight of his 10 targeted passes for 61 yards in a 35-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Oct. 8.

Fantasy Tip: It was a better performance than last week, when Witten was held to one catch. Still, QB Dak Prescott has so many targets on the field you have to wonder how Witten will do. He remains a decent TE1 option moving forward, but keep an eye on his matchups.

Cowboys | Jason Witten held to one grab

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 17:23:27 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten posted just one grab for nine yards on two targets in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: It was a very disappointing game for Witten, as fantasy owners expected big things against a leaky Rams pass defense. What's worse, fantasy owners had to endure seeing James Hanna celebrating a 28-yard touchdown instead of Witten on the highlights. Witten will look to get on track in Week 5 against the Packers.
