Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is officially listed as probable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten is officially listed as probable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. Witten is recovering from a lacerated spleen but practiced in full all week. He proved hs ability to play through pain in the season opener, so it should be uphill from here for the star tight end.

Fantasy Impact: The Seattle Seahawks present a tough matchup for the Dallas Cowboys' offense. Witten's health is good news, but don't expect him to win a fantasy week for you with this tough matchup. View his health as a long-term boost to his fantasy value and nothing more.
