Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten said QB Tony Romo (back) is on track to come back better than ever. "Seems like he's excited to get back and get healthy," Witten said.

Cowboys | Jason Witten will not lose playing time

Fri, 21 Feb 2014 13:44:40 -0800

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said TE Jason Witten will not lose playing time to TE Gavin Escobar in 2014. "Well, I don't know about that," Garrett said. "Witt's a great football player and has been for a long time, a Pro Bowler again last year. In my opinion, our opinion, the best tight end in football and has been for decades. Witt's certainly going to be a big part of what we do with our offensive football team. But that doesn't mean Gavin can't be more involved."

Cowboys | Jason Witten holding out hope for Tony Romo

Thu, 26 Dec 2013 15:38:11 -0800

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten isn't ready to rule QB Tony Romo (back) out for Week 17 against the Philadelphia Eagles. "I wouldn't count him out until he's out," Witten said. "There's no question. That wouldn't surprise me, but I do think obviously this is different situation (it) seems like with the back and however that plays out. But you've got to prepare with Kyle (Orton) and go as if that's the case and then see how it plays out." Romo has not practiced so far this week.

Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys have stated that Romo probably won't need to practice in order to play in Week 17, but we think that's doubtful. You should already have planned to be without Romo this weekend. If he miraculously plays, deal with that decision later.

Cowboys | Jason Witten returns to prominent role

Tue, 05 Nov 2013 11:52:57 -0800

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten was a big part of the offense in the team's Week 9 victory over the Minnesota Vikings, catching eight passes for 102 yards and a touchdown after totaling nine catches for 90 yards in the previous three games. The team made sure to work on ways to get Witten more involved the week heading into the matchup with the Vikes. Minnesota played Cover 2 and QB Tony Romo went 8-for-10 when looking Witten's way.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the disappointing weeks prior, Witten remains a strong TE1 option.

Cowboys | Miles Austin ruled out

Fri, 27 Sep 2013 12:41:13 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) did not participated in practice Friday, Sept. 27, and has been ruled out for the team's Week 4 game.

Fantasy Tip: With Austin ruled out, it likely means that Dwayne Harris could get more looks, if he gets on to the field as he is dealing with his own injury issues. If he canít go, Terrance Williams may get more looks, but Jason Witten may be the biggest beneficiary of this news.

Cowboys | Jason Witten hopes to be more involved in red zone

Fri, 23 Aug 2013 12:54:14 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten said he hopes to be more involved in the red zone offense this season after only getting one target in the red zone last season. "Offensively we just haven't done a good enough job putting points on the board and I'm apart of that. Hopefully I'll get more touches and opportunities and that's something we worked on this offseason. I felt like in training camp we saw some results of that and I'm excited to see it carry over into the regular season," Witten said.

Fantasy Tip: Witten has been one of the most productive tight ends over the last few seasons and should still be a solid No. 1 fantasy tight end, but his value would increase if receives more targets in the red zone.
