Cowboys | Jason Witten chasing franchise history

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 15:37:36 -0800

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten (11,768) needs 137 yards to pass retired WR Michael Irvin (11,904) for the most receiving yards in franchise history.

Fantasy Tip: Witten seemingly always does damage against the rival Giants, and with this record in sight, it's feasible to believe the 14-year veteran can perhaps come close to that mark this upcoming Sunday night. Despite seeing his streak of 130 consecutive games with at least one reception get snapped last Thursday, Witten is still worth plugging in as a TE1 for many leagues.

Cowboys | Streak ends for Jason Witten

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 21:49:57 -0800

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten did not catch a pass in a 17-15 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13, snapping a 130-game streak that dated back to 2008.

Fantasy Tip: Witten has been held under 40 yards in each of the last three games, and while he probably won't be held without a catch again, he is no more than a TE2.

Cowboys | Five grabs for Jason Witten

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 16:51:20 -0800

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten posted five receptions for 37 yards on seven targets in the Week 11 game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Witten has managed 19 grabs over the past three games, but he has been held out of the end zone in each of the past two. He still remains a decent low-end TE1, especially in PPR leagues, heading into the Thanksgiving game against the Washington Redskins in Week 12.

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 20:45:38 -0800

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten posted six receptions for 59 yards in the Week 10 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was targeted eight times.

Fantasy Tip: Witten had six or more receptions twice in his first seven games, but he has equaled that production with 14 grabs on 18 targets for 193 yards and a score over the past two outings. He has re-emerged as a TE1 in all fantasy formats after a mediocre start.

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 13:19:15 -0800

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten caught eight passes for 134 yards and one touchdown against the Cleveland Browns in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: Witten had a breakout game in Week 9 since his previous season high for receiving yards was 66 yards. He has been a solid receiving option for the Cowboys this season and can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end for owners in Week 10.

Cowboys | Jason Witten active for Week 6

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 12:34:56 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten (chest) is officially active for the team's Week 6 game.

Fantasy Tip: Witten has seen more targets lately but has not posted more than 47 yards in any of the last three games and has not found the end zone this season. He could be a flex option in some leagues, but owners probably will be able to find a better starting option.
