Fantasy Analysis | 1413782023
Gavin Escobar a threat to Jason Witten?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Cowboys rookie tight end Gavin Escobar, who entered the day with just four catches all season, wasn't highly targeted Week 7 against the Giants, but he made the three targets he did get count, scoring two touchdowns, including one on an impressive 26-yard grab between two defenders in the third quarter.

In all, he had three catches for 65 yards -- numbers that would be easier to overlook if not for the two touchdowns and the fact that fellow tight end Jason Witten, to this point a mainstay in Fantasy, had only two catches for 27 yards. And it's not like he and quarterback Tony Romo were just failing to connect. Witten was targeted only twice the whole game.

Witten's production hasn't been up to his usual standards this season -- in seven games, he's averaging 3.3 catches for 38.0 yards -- but just based on their history together, you figured Romo would have a need for him sooner or later. Now with the emergence of Escobar, it's no longer so clear.

Escobar himself isn't worth adding except in deep leagues of 16 teams or more that don't have enough tight ends to go around. In those formats, he's the new Timothy Wright. But in leagues of 12 teams or fewer, Witten may be on the outs. He deserves a couple more weeks given his history, but keep an eye out for the next big thing at the position.

Cowboys TE Jason Witten does little Week 7
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cowboys tight end Jason Witten didn't do much Week 7 against the Giants.

Witten was thrown just two passes during the contest. He caught both balls, gaining 27 yards. Dez Bryant really dominated in the passing game, and took away a lot of looks from the other pass catchers on the team.

Witten will look for more Week 8 against Washington.

Cowboys QB feels Jason Witten might be best player in team history
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Cowboys have a prestigious franchise history, which includes five Super Bowl titles, 12 Hall of Famers and 18 players in their Ring of Honor. However, quarterback Tony Romo feels tight end Jason Witten might be the best player in franchise history.

"Witten's just the best," Romo said, per The Dallas Morning News. "He might be the best Dallas Cowboy of all time. Literally his career has been exceptional. He's hit every mark he ever had. He's going to go on as the first or second greatest tight end of all time. I just think I've been lucky enough to be able to play with him."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Cowboys tight end Jason Witten became the third tight end in NFL history with 10,000 career receiving yards on Sunday at home against the Texans in Week 5.

Witten caught a 9-yard pass and a 4-yard pass from Tony Romo in the second quarter. He caught a pass down the middle on a seam route for a gain of 34 yards in the third quarter, his longest gain of the afternoon. He caught four of the five passes thrown his way for 59 yards, averaging 14.8 yards per grab in a 23-20 overtime victory.

Witten had just 46 receiving yards through his first two games of the season. Over his last three games, he has 169 yards.
