Cowboys' Jason Witten: Restructures contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witten restructured his contract to free up $3.5 million 2018 cap space for the Cowboys, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Witten presumably converted most of his base salary into a bonus, as opposed to taking an an actual pay cut. He'll turn 36 in May and yet didn't give any thought to retirement, coming off a 2017 campaign in which he caught 63 of 87 passes for 560 yards and five touchdowns, with a career-low mark of 8.9 yards per catch. Witten is locked in as the Cowboys' top tight end for at least one more year, hoping to play all 16 games for a 15th consecutive season. He's fourth on the all-time receptions list (1,152), but he likely would need to play three or four more seasons to move any higher.

Cowboys' Jason Witten: Vows to return in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witten said after Sunday's 6-0 win over the Eagles that he intends to come back in 2018, Kate Hairopoulos of The Dallas Morning News reports.

His 2017 season didn't exactly end on a high note, as he caught only two of three passes for 17 yards, but Witten still feels like he can contribute to the Cowboys. The 35-year-old posted career lows in catches, receiving yards and targets this season, however, and at this point he offers no downfield threat at all, simply providing Dak Prescott with a reliable checkdown option. With the team likely looking for ways to add more of a vertical element to its offense next season, it's hard to imagine Witten's production bouncing back in any way.

Cowboys' Jason Witten: Scores for second straight game Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witten caught one of two targets for a 20-yard touchdown in Sunday's win over the Giants.

He's been a Giant-killer throughout his illustrious career, grabbing 15 TDs in 30 games against them -- including scores in both 2017 meetings. Witten's volume numbers continue trending down at 35 years old, but he remains a solid security blanket for Dak Prescott, and the tight end's five touchdowns this season are his best total since 2014.

Cowboys' Jason Witten: Makes one catch count in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witten brought in one of five targets for an eight-yard touchdown in Thursday's 38-14 win over the Redskins.

The veteran tight end opened the scoring on the night with an eight-yard grab in the first quarter, his first touchdown since Week 7. Witten's production has been a bit volatile recently, as he's alternated a trio of one-catch efforts with a pair of seven-reception games over the last five contests. However, the 35-year-old is capable of a strong effort on any given week, considering his frequent role as a security blanket for Dak Prescott. He'll look to up his numbers against the Giants in a Week 14 road matchup.

Cowboys' Jason Witten: Team-high seven grabs Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witten caught all seven of his targets for 44 yards in Thursday's 28-6 loss to the Chargers.

He was once again Dak Prescott's favorite checkdown option, but the aging tight end wasn't able to do much with the ball after the catch. Witten's erratic target volume -- he's alternated games of seven targets and one target over the last month -- make him a risky fantasy play even in PPR formats, but with injuries mounting on the Cowboys' offensive line, his role could become steadier down the stretch as Prescott finds himself with less time in the pocket.
