From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 29): Witten made enough catches far enough downfield to keep his roster spot in fantasy leagues, but he is still a very unexciting option who is far from a must-start at this late point in his career.

Week 5: vs Houston Texans

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 2 vs TEN (7 / 4 / 32 / 0 rec)

After an invisible Week 1, Witten showed well despite the tempered stat line this week against Tennessee. Witten eludes the first defender after the catch on an out route to convert a third down. On another, Witten secured a Tony Romo pass through contact to get into field goal range in the closing seconds of the first half. Through two games it is clear that the passing offense will run through Dez Bryant when healthy and Jason Witten will be in the mix with DeMarco Murray, Terrance Williams, and Cole Beasley for secondary targets.

2014 Week 3 vs STL (5 / 4 / 49 / 0 rec)

Witten gained more separation on his short and intermediate routes than the opening two weeks of the season. He was the secondary passing option to Dez Bryant against the Rams. In addition to his regular out routes and finding open areas of zone coverage, Witten also contributed an illegal blocking penalty in the second half. With the reduced volume of the Cowboys passing game becoming a strong trend through three weeks, pass catchers outside of Dez Bryant are inconsistent contributors from game-to-game, Jason Witten included.

2014 Week 4 vs NO (5 / 5 / 61 / 0 rec)

Witten has played every snap this season and was on top of his game this week against New Orleans. In addition to catching all five of his targets on short and intermediate routes, Witten was an asset as a run-blocker. DeMarco Murray had multiple sizeable gains due to Witten controlling the edge of the line of scrimmage. Witten's biggest play in the passing game came in the mid-fourth quarter on a third down conversion, Dallas' first in a few possessions, which halted the Saints' building momentum.
