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.

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.

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.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten said he agreed the team needed to draft a tight end if they were going to commit to using more two-tight end sets in the passing game. He said he has no problems helping second-round pick TE Gavin Escobar adjust. "There's no ego there for me," Witten said. "It's all about winning. That's part of being a leader and a captain - is to help other guys play at a high level. There's no hard feelings from that standpoint."

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten said he believes QB Tony Romo's work ethic has been great even though owner/general manager Jerry Jones said Romo will be spending more time at the team's facility and being more involved in the offense. "I've always felt like Tony was very involved in the process of the plays and our scheme, how we attacked," Witten said. "I think in any organization where you have an elite quarterback like that, you want him to feel comfortable. I think that's something we've always tried to do, and it sounds like we're going to continue to do that."
