Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 6 vs GB (8 / 4 / 42 / 0 rec)

For the third straight game Witten led the Cowboys in targets. Like Cole Beasley, Witten provides a stable short-range target for Dak Prescott on critical passing downs. Witten's best gain came on a play-action crossing route as he was wide open down the field. Witten converted a vital third down in the closing minutes, a classic Witten out route, to all but ice the game as Dallas was up by multiple scores and bleeding the clock. Witten's top-shelf upside has left his weekly spectrum, but remains a sturdy bet for consistent work and a handful of targets.

2016 Week 5 vs CIN (5 / 3 / 43 / 0 rec)

Witten led the team in targets for the second straight game. While slowing down in his mid-30s, Witten still has a strong stiff arm, which is showed out this week on a 32-yard catch-and-run effort. On third down, Witten turned up the field after his typical short-range route and outmuscled a defender for the long gain. On the down side, Witten logged an ugly third down drop this week a rare drive-killer in Dallas' comfortable home win against Cincinnati.

2016 Week 4 vs SF (9 / 7 / 47 / 0 rec)

Witten had a team-high nine targets, however, his range of the field continues to shrink. He rarely ventures more than 10 yards downfield anymore, making his sturdy hands paramount to his viability. Witten was invisible until the late second quarter and collected four receptions on a single two-minute drive to close the first half. Witten broke a tackle on a noteworthy reception turning a short gain into five additional yards.

2016 Week 3 vs CHI (2 / 2 / 25 / 0 rec)

It was a muted week of work for Witten as Dallas took the air out of the ball in the comfortable home win against Chicago. Dallas threw the air just 24 times and Witten was fifth on the passing game pecking order with two targets. His notable reception came on a deep out route where Witten nearly scored. Witten went out of bounds just short of the end zone on the play. Cole Beasley has been a more consistent chain-moving option for the Dallas passing game and this week saw Terrance Williams have more involvement than previous games this season.

2016 Week 2 vs WAS (4 / 3 / 51 / 0 rec)

Witten's involvement lagged behind Dez Bryant and Cole Beasley against Washington, a mere four targets. Much of Witten's production came on a broken coverage, play-action rollout by Dak Prescott where Witten rumbled for nearly 30 yards. Later in the game Witten benefitted from play-action again for more than 10 yards. Witten remains a viable weekly option as Dallas' wide receivers beyond Dez Bryant and Cole Beasley have been invisible through two weeks.

2016 Week 1 vs NYG (14 / 9 / 66 / 0 rec)

Witten led the Cowboys with 14 targets (a hearty 31% market share) and 66 yards. Like with Tony Romo, Witten - along with Cole Beasley - was a short-range security blanket for rookie quarterback Dak Prescott. While Witten converted a key third down and moved the chains throughout the game, he made two critical errors against Giants. The first was a holding penalty on a field goal attempt. Fortunately Dallas converted the second long-range attempt post-penalty. Witten also logged a drop in the final minute of the game as Dallas drove for a potential game-winning field goal.
