Jason Witten scores in spectacular fashion in Week 7

Jason Witten caught all four of his targets in the Cowboys' Week 7 win over the 49ers for 54 yards and a score. The touchdown came on a spectacular one-handed grab in the back of the end zone.

Fantasy Impact

Witten continues to produce, and is a frequent target, especially in the red zone. Witten has seven red zone targets through only six games this season. He ranks seventh at the position in targets per game overall. In more competitive games, Witten should see more than four targets. Continue to view Witten as a lower-end TE1, but he is a fine start most weeks for fantasy.

Jason Witten bounces back against the Packers.

Jason Witten caught eight passes on 10 targets for 61 yards in the loss against the Packers.

Fantasy Impact

Witten bounced back in this game with the main targets going his way. Although he was unable to score, the work coming his way and the others at this position lacking, 61 yards goes a long way. The Cowboys have a great matchup against the 49ers next week, which could be good for the old man, but with the 49er defense the Cowboys can be up quickly.

Jason Witten catches only one pass in the Cowboys loss to the Rams

Dallas Cowboys Tight End Jason Witten had his second poor performance in a row catching only one pass off of two targets for nine yards in the Cowboys’ 35-30 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Impact

Witten has really cooled off after his hot start. After the first two weeks, Witten was the number one ranked Tight End in fantasy football with 17 catches, 156 yards, and two touchdowns. However, the last two games combined Witten has caught only two passes for 12 yards. While the last two weeks haven’t been good, I expect Witten to have a bit of a bounce-back performance in Week 5. With the state of the Tight End position in 2017, unless you have one of the top five or six guys, Witten is probably worth a start against the Packers.

Jason Witten slows down in Cowboys' win

Jason Witten has a very pedestrian night with one catch on four targets for three yards.

Fantasy Impact

Although it seemed Witten was set up for a solid night due to how the game plan could have gone with Arizonas tough corners, Witten didn't capitalize. Dak was able to punish the Cardinals with his secondary receiving targets and Ezekiel Elliott was able to take over on the ground. The Cowboys' face the Rams next week, so hopefully Witten can turn it around against a weaker pass defense.

Jason Witten shines in poor showing for the Cowboys

Jason Witten shinned in the Cowboys' loss to the Broncos, catching 10 passes on 13 targets for 97 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact

With that good of a stat line, Witten is hard to ignore. It seems he is still going strong and will continue to see lots of safety blanket type looks from Dak Prescott, as well as some red zone targets. Witten has a difficult matchup against the Cardinals in Week 3, but he's getting tough to sit.
