From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 20): The emergence of Gavin Escobar as a quality downfield option might be the last nail in Jason Witten's fantasy coffin. He is a low ceiling option despite playing in one of the best offenses in the league. It is hard to justify Witten over streaming TEs at this point.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs HOU (5 / 4 / 59 / 0 rec)

Witten logged one of his better games of the season and made a long reception down the seam that has been a rare sight over the last two seasons. In addition to that gain of more than 30 yards, Witten was Tony Romo's safety net, in addition to Cole Beasley, on short pass routes. Romo spun away from pressure on one notable play to sidearm a pass to Witten, turning a loss into a four-yard gain.

2014 Week 6 vs SEA (5 / 2 / 24 / 1 rec)

Witten was used down the field more often than in previous weeks against Seattle. The Seahawks are a good matchup for opposing tight ends on a per-target basis and Witten burned them for a long gain down the middle, in addition to a goal line touchdown. On another target, a deep pass sailed right through Witten's hands. Also, Witten nearly hauled in a one-handed catch down the sidelines. There was a much bigger day available to Witten on his five targets, but the veteran tight end still found the end zone in the key road victory.

2014 Week 7 vs NYG (2 / 2 / 27 / 0 rec)

Witten made the most of his two targets against the Giants, converting both in long-yardage third down situations. One of the receptions came against zone coverage, which was easily read by Witten, sitting down between defenders.
