Jason Witten not getting replaced by Gavin Escobar yet
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett doesn't expect tight end Jason Witten to lose any playing time to second-year Gavin Escobar in 2014, reports ESPN.

"Witt's a great football player and has been for a long time, a Pro Bowler again last year," Garrett said. "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."

Witten had 73 catches for 851 yards and eight touchdowns in 2013. Escobar had just nine catches for 134 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie.

Jason Witten thrives with Kyle Orton
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Cowboys tight end Jason Witten set season highs with 12 catches for 135 yards in the loss to Philadelphia. Backup quarterback Kyle Orton targeted Witten a game-high 16 times.

It was a major turnaround after Witten saw three or fewer targets in three of his previous four games. Witten did have one drop Sunday night.

Witten finishes the year with 73 catches for 851 yards and eight touchdowns. He had three 100-yard games and a pair of two-touchdown performances.

Jason Witten aiming to buck trends Week 17
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Cowboys backup quarterback Kyle Orton has thrown 15 passes the past two seasons. He's targeted Jason Witten four times, completing each for 48 yards. That's a promising ratio as Dallas prepares to face Philly with Orton instead of Tony Romo.

But several recent indicators are troubling for Witten, who needs one touchdown to tie the career-high nine he scored in 2010. He's drawn an average of four targets over the last month. He's failed to clear 50 yards in seven of his last 10 games. He had two catches for 13 yards last week at Washington.

The Eagles give up the 5th-fewest Fantasy points (5.7 per game) to tight ends, allowing two touchdowns all season. In Week 7 at Philadelphia, Witten caught four passes for 48 scoreless yards.

Witten is still a solid starting option. He's scored four times in the past five weeks. If Orton targets him more often than Romo has recently, Witten should end 2013 on a high note.

Jason Witten catches two balls Week 16
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cowboys tight end Jason Witten caught two passes Week 16 against Washington.

Witten was targeted just twice. He caught both passes for a total of 13 yards. Witten was clearly not a huge part of the team's game plan during the game, and didn't end up playing much of a role. He'll look for a bounce-back Week 17 against the Eagles.

Jason Witten looking at strong matchup
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is looking at a strong matchup Week 16 against Washington.

Washington has struggled to limit tight ends this season, allowing them to average 9.14 Fantasy points per game. Through 14 games, the team has allowed 26 passing touchdowns. Of those 26 touchdowns, 10 have gone to opposing tight ends. The first time the teams met this season, Witten gained just 27 yards. 

Witten has been on a bit of a roll recently. Over the last six touchdowns, Witten has scored five times. Witten also performs well against Washington. Over his career, Witten has scored six touchdowns and accumulated 1087 yards against Washington. He should be a strong play Week 16.
