Cowboys | DeMarco Murray credits workout partner

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 21:29:10 -0700

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray worked out with TE Jason Witten before the team's official offseason program, and he credits the veteran tight end with his increased stamina and durability. "It helped a lot, obviously with the stamina aspect just building a good armor for your body so you can take some hits and take the pounding of a long season," Murray said Friday, Oct. 24. "He's done it for a long time and he's someone who has had a lot of success in this league and he knows what to do to take care of your body in season and out of season, so it helped extremely a lot and I have to thank him and we're still working together."

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten is averaging around six targets, three catches and 39 yards per game through four outings this year. He is TE29 in non-PPR leagues.

Fantasy Tip: It's tough to drop someone like Jason Witten with his history. There are a slew of better options at this point in the season, however. He's not worth the risk of $5,700 on FantasyScore.

Cowboys | Jason Witten nears milestone

Fri, 03 Oct 2014 18:59:30 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten needs 45 yards in Week 5 against the Houston Texans to hit 10,000 for his career, joining former Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez (15,127) and former Denver Broncos TE Shannon Sharpe (10,060) as the only tight ends in NFL history to hit the milestone.

Fantasy Tip: The Texans rank 15th in the NFL against the pass, allowing 237.5 passing yards per game with five touchdowns through four games. Witten should be in line for a decent day, and remains a Top 10 fantasy option at his position. At $5700 (or 15.4 percent of your salary cap) in FantasyScore, he is a strong option.

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."
