Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten led the team with six catches and 71 yards in the NFC Division round versus the Packers.
Insight: Witten looked upset after the loss being that he is closing in on the end of his great career, and he still has not played in the Super Bowl. There are a lot of question marks going into next season for Dallas, but Witten should still be there for them.
 
1/4/2015 7:57:00 PM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten played the role of Tony Romo's security blanket on Sunday.
Insight: What else is new? Witten came up big, and none bigger on a fourth-down play during the game-winning drive. He finished with five catches for 63 yards on seven targets.
 
12/28/2014 5:17:00 PM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten caught four passes for 49 yards on Sunday.
Insight: Tony Romo didn't need his security blanket too oftern versus Washington, but Witten still turned in a decent day. Witten finished 2014 with 64 catches and 703 yards.
 
12/22/2014 10:15:00 AM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten caught seven of a team-high seven targets for 90 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: It's no surprise that the passing game has picked up the past few weeks when Tony Romo has gone back to his reliable tight end.
 
12/15/2014 9:36:00 AM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten caught seven of a team-high nine targets for 69 yards.
Insight: While he didn't get into the end zone, Witten was busy catching key first down passes for most of the night.
 
Cold12/5/2014 9:36:00 AM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten was held to two catch for 26 yards against the Bears
Insight: Witten was facing the league's worst team against opposing tight ends, but didn't take advantage, seeing just three targets. After a solid middle portion of the schedule, Witten is back in his early season funk.
 
11/27/2014 7:53:00 PM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten was held to one catch on Thanksgiving.
Insight: It was for eight yards. Witten had scored during his previous two games, but is more of a TE2 at this point in his career.
 
11/24/2014 10:54:00 AM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten caught 4-of-6 targets for 30 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: After failing to score in the first five games, Witten has scored once in four of the last six contests. He's not getting the yards we are used to, but at least he's finding the end zone.
 
11/9/2014 6:08:00 PM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten scored a touchdown Sunday against the Jaguars.
Insight: He had five catches for 33 yards, and is more of a TE2 at this point in his career.
 
11/2/2014 5:30:00 PM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten led the team with six catches and 62 yards on Sunday.
Insight: Ironically, Witten had a pretty decent fantasy day when the Cowboys offense did basically nothing. Witten has struggled this season, so six receptions for 62 yards is the one of the tight ends' better games.
 
Cold10/20/2014 10:04:00 AM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten continues to be ignored in the Dallas offensive game plans.
Insight: Witten was targeted just twice against the Giants. The Cowboys did hit backup tight end Gavin Escobar for two touchdowns. Those used to go to Witten. It's time to move on from the two-time All-Pro.
 
10/13/2014 5:45:00 PM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten scored his first touchdown of 2014.
Insight: That was the highlight of the day for Witten, as he totaled only two receptions for 24 yards. While Witten is valuable to the Cowboys' team, he is no more than a TE2 in fantasy football.
 
Cold9/22/2014 10:05:00 AM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten slightly emerged from his slumber, catching four of five passes for 49 yards.
Insight: Still, Witten owners need much more. Witten averaged 6.5 receptions, 53.2 ypg and .5 TDs per game a year ago versus 6.0 receptions, 31.7 ypg and no touchdowns in the first three games this season.
 
9/16/2014 3:21:00 PM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten has gotten off to a lackluster start this season.
Insight: He's managed only six receptions for 46 yards thus far. A lot of that has to do with Romo's inconsistent play. If Dallas' QB is able to get it together, Witten should be able to get back to his career averages. For now however, consider Witten a TE2.
 
8/7/2014 11:33:00 AM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten, like fellow starters Tony Romo and DeMarco Murray, are expected to miss the preseason opener, according to Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News
Insight: At 32-years-old and in his 12th season we trust he'll be ready when the bell rings and doesn't need much preseason action. Witten is a second-tier fantasy tight end (Jimmy Graham and a healthy Rob Gronkowski are on top).
 
11/3/2013 5:42:00 PM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten tied a season-high with 10 targets Sunday against the Vikings.
Insight: Witten recorded his second 100-yard game and fourth TD of the year. The tight end is on pace for 33 fewer targets than last season.
 
12/23/2012 5:21:00 PM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten's six catches Sunday gave him 103 on the season, the first time he has reached 100 receptions in his career. It's the most catches in NFL season by a tight end, surpassing Tony Gonzalez' 102.
Insight: Witten's season started slow after he battled a ruptured spleen in the preseason. He caught just eight balls on 20 targets for 76 yards over his first three games but has reeled in 95 catches for 907 yards in his last 12.
 
10/1/2012 11:42:00 PM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten turned in his best performance of the season in Monday's loss to Chicago, catching 13 passes for 112 yards and a touchdown. He only had eight catches in the first three games combined.
Insight: Witten was plagued by drops and penalties in the first three weeks but he showed up big in Week 4. Fantasy owners will like the four catches, 48 yards and a touchdown he had on the Cowboys' final drive when the game was already out of hand.
 
9/12/2012 8:40:00 PM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten (lacerated spleen) was a full go in Wednesday's practice, according to ESPN Dallas.
Insight: Witten caught just two passes in Week 1 as a surprise active, but he said he's feeling better and doesn't expect the injury to linger like an ankle or a hamstring injury. You can start him comfortably in Week 2; he'll undoubtedly perform better now that he's a full part of the team's game plan.
 
9/5/2012 11:55:00 PM
Description: Cowboys tight end Jason Witten (lacerated spleen) started but he only caught two passes for 10 yards.
Insight: Witten was on the field for much of the game but he didn't play a factor in the passing game. It was worth the risk playing him since he is usually Tony Romo's favorite target.
