Gavin Escobar wasn't targeted in the Cowboys' Week 8 loss to the Redskins.
We're not sure Escobar even played a snap. We saw James Hanna on the field a couple times. Escobar has seen very limited playing time this season, but blew up for 65 yards and two touchdowns on three targets in Week 7. He's not a fantasy option.
Lance Dunbar rushed one time for six yards and caught an 11-yard pass in the Cowboys' Week 8 loss to the Redskins.
Dunbar has no standalone value, and would only come into PPR consideration if DeMarco Murray gets hurt. Joseph Randle is Murray's early-down backup.
Niles Paul caught three passes for 27 yards in the Redskins' Week 8 win over the Cowboys.
Paul caught all three of his targets. Paul was also flagged for a holding penalty, negating a 10-yard Alfred Morris run. He remains a part of the offense, even with Jordan Reed back, but not a big enough one to warrant a fantasy roster spot.
Terrance Williams caught six passes for 69 yards in the Cowboys' Week 8 loss to the Redskins.
Williams was targeted seven times on the night, with the missed connection coming on an early-game deep shot. But Williams was draped in rookie CB Bashaud Breeland's coverage. After eight games, Williams is on pace for a 50-814-12 line. We don't envision Williams reaching that touchdown total on his limited targets. He remains a sell-high candidate. Williams will be a WR3 vs. Arizona in Week 9.
Jordan Reed caught seven passes for 40 yards in the Redskins' Week 8 win over the Cowboys.
A PPR victory, but not much else. Reed tied for the team lead with seven targets, but didn't do anything post-catch. His best grab of the night was a stratal-esque 16-yard connection between he and Colt McCoy in overtime where McCoy floated a fall-away pass to Reed, who toe-tapped on the sideline. Reed is a special talent with much better games to come. He's an every-week TE1. The Vikings are next.
Jason Witten caught five passes for 70 yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 8 overtime loss to the Redskins.
Witten drew a team-high eight targets and scored from 25 yards out in the fourth quarter. Brandon Weeden, in relief of an injured Tony Romo (back), hit wide-open Witten for the score after two defenders followed Dwyane Harris downfield. At the midway point of the season, Witten is on pace for a 56-672-4 line. The catches and yards would be Witten's fewest since his 2003 rookie season.
Pierre Garcon caught four passes for 47 yards in the Redskins' Week 8 win over the Cowboys.
Garcon reeled in all four of his targets. He was the No. 3 option in the passing game behind DeSean Jackson and Jordan Reed, and appears to be settled in that spot for the time being. Through eight games, Garcon is on pace for a meager 78-886-6 line. The touchdowns would tie a career-high, but the yards and catches would be a bit dropoff from 2013. He'll receive a boost when Robert Griffin III returns to the lineup, possibly as soon as Week 9 against the Vikings.
Dez Bryant caught three passes for 30 yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 8 overtime loss to the Redskins.
Bryant was targeted seven times on the night. It took him a bit to get on the board in this one, but he easily beat OLB Everette Brown for a 20-yard gain on a crossing route in the second quarter before finishing off the same drive with a grown-man five-yard touchdown. Bryant fought through two tackle attempts, stretching his arm over the goal line for the score. At the season's midway point, Bryant is on pace for a 96-1,240-10 line. The 96 grabs would be a career-high, while we can expect Bryant to flirt, or even pass, the yards and touchdowns. The elite WR1 gets the burnable Cardinals next.
