Player Outlook

Jason Witten continues to be a good player for the Cowboys, but his Fantasy value has become limited in recent years. It's not fair to judge his 2015 production because Tony Romo (collarbone) missed most of the season, but he did struggle with 77 catches for 713 yards and three touchdowns. Two of those touchdowns came in Week 1, so he was clearly a huge letdown from that point on, but he can still be a reliable option as a bye-week or injury replacement in deeper leagues. The problem is tight end has become a deep position with better options, and Witten's mediocrity might not be needed in most formats. He'll be 34 this season, and his best days are clearly behind him. He'll still have some good moments during the year, especially with Romo healthy, but he's not someone to target as a starter coming into the season.

Player News
  • Witten caught six of eight targets for 58 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Washington. The score was Witten's first since Week 1. The veteran tight end struggled without his long-time quarterback in the lineup for much of the season, but still managed to rank fourth in the leauge among tight ends with 77 receptions - his most since 2012. Witten will be 34 to open next season, but should still have enough in the tank to give Romo is favorite security blanket. A huge leap in production may be unrealistic, though. While Witten didn't have Romo to throw him the ball, he also didn't have a healthy Dez Bryant commanding targets.

  • Witten caught one of two targets for just twelve yards in Sunday's loss to the Bills. After snagging five catches last week versus the Jets, the dependable tight end saw just two looks Sunday in what was a dreadful performance by the Dallas passing attack. Kellen Moore severely limits the upside of all Cowboys pass catchers as long as he remains the starter, and this will remain the case next week in the season finale versus the Redskins.

  • Cowboys' Jason Witten: Active Sunday, as expected
    By RotoWire Staff

    Witten (chest) is active Sunday against the Bills. Witten was limited in practice all week, but this wasn't expected to cause any major problems for the veteran, as he was given a "probable" designation in advance of the Week 16 matchup. With Dez Bryant (foot/ankle) already ruled out, there will be a handful of extra targets to go around, some of which could be delegated to the tight ends.

  • Cowboys' Jason Witten: Probable for Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Witten (chest) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Bills. He was limited all week in practice, but that was likely just to preserve him heading into Sunday's game. It appears that Witten will be safe to deploy this week, but with Kellen Moore starting under center for Dallas, there is an added element of risk involved.

  • Cowboys' Jason Witten: Limited Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Witten was limited at practice Wednesday due to a chest issue, the Cowboys' official site reports. Witten has cobbled together one of the most impressive streaks in professional sports, playing in 201 straight games at a position where hard hits are the norm. His ability to handle individual drills Wednesday implies that he'll extend that run. Perhaps more pressing is lack of touchdowns, as he hasn't hit pay dirt since Week 1, but Sunday's opponent, the Bills, has allowed four touchdowns to tight ends over the last four contests.
