Jason Witten goes for a season-high 61 yards

Jason Witten transitioning to blocking tight end
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cowboys tight end Jason Witten has totaled just 10 catches for 95 yards and no touchdowns through three games. It's unusual to see such low production from one of the most successful pass-catching tight ends in NFL history.

Though, Witten's poor receiving numbers seems to be related to Dallas moving to a run-first offense in 2014.

"You’ve heard me say this many times, he’s the most complete tight end in football and has been for the last 10 years," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Monday, per The Dallas Morning News. "He’s willing to block from the line of scrimmage, in the backfield, run any kind of route you ask him to run, do anything you ask him to do. It’s all for the team, all as well as he can do it. He’s a great example for the rest of us."

Witten has been on the field for 210 plays and has stayed in to block on 115 of those plays.

"I think we’re committed to running the football," Witten said after Sunday’s 34-31 win in St. Louis. "I think everybody is waiting for that to break and it’s not. There is a complete commitment to running the football and continuing to run the football."

Jason Witten catches four balls in Week 3 win vs. Rams
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cowboys tight end Jason Witten caught four of his five targets for 49 yards in his team's 34-31 win over the Rams in Week 3.

Witten has endured an inauspicious start to the season, catching six passes for just 46 yards over the first two weeks of the season, but he was able to set a season-high in receiving yardage despite receiving few targets than he saw in either of the team's first two games. Witten was held under 50 yards in nine of his 16 games last season and has failed to reach that level once in 2014. He'll look for a breakout line in Week 4 against the Saints.

Week 3 bust alert: Jason Witten
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Jason Witten has been the lone member of the Dallas passing game to not do anything thus far this season. 

Terrance Williams scored a touchdown in Week 1 and last week Dez Bryant found the end zone. Witten, meanwhile, has six catches for 46 yards on 13 targets.

He has a tough matchup this week against the Rams, who held Witten in check last year with five catches for 67 yards on six targets. St. Louis has only allowed three tight ends to reach double digits in Fantasy points in the past 34 games, so we're not expecting a Witten breakout performance this week.

He is a good buy-low candidate though since he still has plenty of chances to play at a high level this season.

Jason Witten turns in another disappointing game
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cowboys tight end Jason Witten was once again one of the team's top-targeted players Week 2 at Tennessee. But like Week 1, the veteran tight end had a disappointing performance.

Witten was targeted seven times Sunday, which was the second-most behind Dez Bryant's 14 targets. While Bryant finished with 10 catches for 103 yards and one touchdown, Witten had four catches for 32 yards and no touchdowns. His longest catch went 15 yards.

Witten had just two catches for 14 yards Week 1, despite six targets. The Cowboys are back in action Week 2 at Tennessee.
