Cowboys | Jason Witten to retire

Thu, 03 May 2018 05:17:01 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten has informed the team he'll retire Thursday, May 3, and join ESPN as an analyst on Monday Night Football.

Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys are suddenly in the market for a tight end. Second-year project tight end Rico Gathers could receive a look in camp, but the team might have to bring in outside help.

Cowboys | Coach wants Jason Garrett back

Sun, 29 Apr 2018 16:55:39 -0700

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is trying to persuade TE Jason Witten to continue his playing career, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Witten is considering becoming a television analyst but has not made a final decision. Witten has been a solid fantasy option for several seasons and would be a No. 2 fantasy tight end if he decides to play in 2018.

Cowboys | No official decision yet for Jason Witten

Fri, 27 Apr 2018 12:48:44 -0700

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten "will take some time to make a decision on his future" in regards to reports about announcing his retirement in order to become ESPN's new Monday Night Football lead analyst, according to team owner Jerry Jones.

Fantasy Tip: This has the feel of damage control - or the attempt of it - for the Cowboys, who really didn't need their hand forced to take a tight end on the second day of the draft, especially considering they have a screaming need at receiver. Rico Gathers' stock figures to spike in the coming days if Dallas doesn't land a blue-chip prospect, although the team is said to be high on Blake Jarwin as well.

Cowboys | Jason Witten about to announce retirement?

Fri, 27 Apr 2018 09:15:53 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten is reportedly planning to announce his retirement from the NFL on Friday, April 27, in order to become ESPN's new Monday Night Football lead analyst, per sources. Witten will reportedly meet with team owner Jerry Jones before making his decision final, however, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

Fantasy Tip: Witten recently said he hoped he could play until he was 40, so ESPN must either have approached him with an offer he couldn't refuse or he had a serious change of heart. Despite losing his speed long ago, he has been one of the league's most complete tight ends for his entire 15-year career - one which should earn him a trip to Canton five years now if he makes this official. His absence would leave a huge void in Dallas' offense - one the team may want to address when the draft resumes Friday night.

Cowboys | Jason Witten reworks deal

Sat, 24 Mar 2018 11:07:07 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten has agreed to restructure his contract, which has created around $3.5 million in salary cap space for the Cowboys, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Witten has seen his stats drop a bit in each of the last two seasons but has posted at least 60 receptions in each of the last 14 seasons. He should be considered a solid No. 2 fantasy tight end in all leagues.

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.
