2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Witten put together what can only be described as another Witten-like fantasy performance in 2011. The talented Cowboys tight end once again had a season heavy on yards but a little disappointing in the touchdown category. He finished the season as the 6th ranked fantasy tight end with 79 receptions for 942 yards and five touchdowns. Unfortunately for his fantasy owners, he stumbled down the stretch, gaining just 272 yards and failing to find the end zone over the final six weeks of the season. The question is whether Witten is slowing down at age 30 or he simply lost touches in the passing game to the hot hand of third wide receiver Laurent Robinson? With Robinson now in Jacksonville and the Cowboys failing to sign a proven receiver to replace him, Witten should get plenty of targets in 2012 and more red zone looks than he had last season. Another 1,000 receiving yard season with six to eight touchdowns seems to be in order for Witten in 2012 and that should make him a top five fantasy player at the tight end position.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Jason Witten practicing Wednesday     -- Wed Sep 23 12:40 pm --

Multiple injures for veteran tight end
Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten has a sprained knee and two sprained ankles. Ho-hum. It was just another day at the office Wednesday for Witten. The Cowboys Pro Bowler was fully padded and going through individual drills at practice Wednesday at Valley Ranch. (Dallas Morning News)

FF Today's Take: Witten has 16 targets in two games and needs to be on the field for the Cowboys given the losses of Dez Bryant and Tony Romo. If he's less than 100 percent on Sunday against the Falcons, new starting QB Brandon Weeden may look to Gavin Escobar to fill the void.
Injury Dez Bryant's foot to take six weeks to heal     -- Tue Sep 15 10:59 am --

Jerry Jones Cowboys star WR will be out through team's Week 6 bye
In a radio interview, Jerry Jones said Dez Bryant's (Jones fracture in foot) surgery went well, but that the foot will take a full six weeks to heal completely. (Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Don't I know it! I once had the exact same foot fracture (fifth metatarsal) and it's a low-blood-flow area that heals relatively slowly, though the inserted screw aids the process. The Cowboys will likely continue to spread the ball around to TE Jason Witten, WR Terrance Williams, slot receiver Cole Beasley, RB Lance Dunbar -- though we could see some of second-year WR Devon Street and rookie Lucky Whitehead if the team shows a need for a bigger edge target.
Injury Dez Bryant out 4-6 weeks, foot injury     -- Sun Sep 13 10:00 pm --

Broken bone
Dallas All-Pro receiver Dez Bryant could be out at least a month after breaking his right foot in the Cowboys' season-opening victory over the New York Giants. Owner Jerry Jones said Bryant would need a pin and be out four to six weeks. (Dallas Morning News)

FF Today's Take: The Cowboys will be without their biggest playmaker for at least a month. Next up on the depth chart is Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley. Tight End Jason Witten may also see increased targets over the next few weeks. If available, Williams will be a hot waiver wire pickup as a potential WR2/3.
