Harrison Butker Gets Favorable Week 17 Draw

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker joined in on the team's uncharacteristic woes in last Monday's 20-14 loss to the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders, sinking both of his extra-point attempts but missing his lone field-goal try. Butker had been flawless on kicks from last year's Super Bowl up until Week 14 of this season, but the 28-year-old has now missed two boots in his last two weeks. With K.C.'s scuffling offense netting just 19.4 points per game through their last eight contests, Butker has secured a single-digit fantasy outcome just twice over this period. The Chiefs next welcome in the Cincinnati Bengals, who have surrendered the ninth-most fantasy points to opposing kickers on the campaign. Butker should be treated as a top-10 choice in Sunday's plus draw for title-hopeful fantasy rosters.

Harrison Butker Still Without A Miss Ahead Of Sunday

2023 has been a season of perfection for Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker, who is absolutely locked in with 23 of 23 field goals and 31 of 31 extra points converted. Butker's flawlessness has unfortunately not translated over to the world of fantasy. Dallas Cowboys rookie Brandon Aubrey is the only other every-week starter to not miss a field goal this year, except Aubrey is appropriately leading the charge with 147 fantasy points. Butker, on the other hand, ranks 13th in total scoring (109 points). The 28-year-old began the campaign with five out of eight showings in double-figure fantasy points but has been reduced to five consecutive single-digit displays. A middling Chiefs offense that's struggled to sustain drives all season has kept Butker's opportunities in check, but a kicker who hasn't missed yet shouldn't be displaced from fantasy's top 10 in Week 15 against the New England Patriots.

Harrison Butker Remains Flawless Entering Week 14

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker hasn't missed a single boot since the Super Bowl LVII triumph over the Philadelphia Eagles, burying 22-of-22 field goals and 29-of-29 extra points this season. Dallas Cowboys rookie Brandon Aubrey is the only other every-week starting kicker to not miss a field goal this year. Butker's accuracy hasn't been an issue, but his lack of opportunity has been. The 28-year-old has logged single-digit fantasy points in five out his last six games, having been unable to reach at least three FG attempts in a single game since Week 8. Butker hit two tries inside 40 yards during last Sunday night's loss against the Green Bay Packers, and he remains a top-10 fantasy option against the Buffalo Bills in Week 14.

Harrison Butker Remains Perfect Entering Week 13

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker hasn't missed a single kick since Super Bowl LVII, burying 20-of-20 field goals and 28-of-28 extra points this season. Dallas Cowboys standout rookie Brandon Aubrey is the only other every-week kicker to not miss a field goal this year. With Justin Tucker and Tyler Bass on a Week 13 bye, Butker is a popular candidate to top weekly positional rankings alongside Jason Sanders on Sunday Night Football against the Green Bay Packers. Snow is in the forecast at Lambeau Field during the afternoon, but the kicking conditions should be fairly manageable by the time nightfall arrives on SNF, considering the type of weather the "frozen tundra" is prone to experience during the winter months as we begin December. Despite averaging the fourth-fewest fantasy points (5.3) over the last four weeks since Week 9, Butker remains worth starting in all season-long fantasy leagues in a humming Chiefs offense.

Harrison Butker The Lone Bright Spot In Loss

Kansas City Chiefs Harrison Butker (illness) overcame his illness and kept the team's lethargic offense afloat in Week 8's ugly 24-9 defeat to the division-rival Denver Broncos, drilling three field goals and accounting for all nine of the team's points. The Chiefs may have dropped their first game to Denver since 2015, but not by the hands of Butker's afternoon. The 28-year-old's effort was highlighted by booting a 56-yard try past the uprights before halftime, keeping him a perfect 18-of-18 on field goals this season. Butker's was K.C.'s leading fantasy scorer on Sunday, which should tell you all you need to know about how rough a day it was for them. The seventh-year man hopes his squad gets back on track in Week 9's International Series affair in Frankfurt against the 6-2 Miami Dolphins and their world-beating offense.

Harrison Butker Off Injury Report With Illness

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker (illness) was able to participate in Friday's practice after missing Thursday's session due to an illness, but he's officially off the Week 8 injury report. Butker is still without a missed kick in 2023, a big jump for him after going 18-for-24 on field goals last year. The 28-year-old has converted all fifteen of his FG attempts and is 19-of-19 on extra-point tries. In Week 8, the seventh-year man squares off with a Denver Broncos team that has permitted the seventh-most fantasy points per game (9.57) to opposing kickers. The weather forecast for Empower Field at Mile High calls for freezing temperatures on Sunday afternoon, which could play a part in Butker's ability to execute his kicks. The two-time Super Bowl champion is a weekly top-five play in K.C.'s potent offense, but expectations should be tempered a bit due to the predicted conditions.

Harrison Butker Still Flawless Entering Week 7

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker has turned it up a notch over the last month, generating four straight double-digit fantasy performances. Butker was responsible for 12 of the Chiefs' 19 points in Week 6's 19-8 win over the division-rival Denver Broncos, comfortably burying a kick from 60 yards out as time expired in the first half. That's not to mention a late 52-yarder to help ice the game at the second half's two-minute warning last Thursday. Sunday's home divisional battle with the Los Angeles Chargers should present plenty of scoring opportunities, with the Week 7 slate's second-highest implied point total (47.5). The 28-year-old remains a top-five kicking play most weeks, and he should inserted into all fantasy lineups while a perfect 29-for-29 on all kicking tries this season.

Harrison Butker Aims To Stay Perfect In Week 6

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker has rebounded thus far from a shaky 2022 that saw him convert just 75% of his field goal attempts. The 28-year-old is a perfect 10-for-10 on FGs and 14-for-14 on extra points, setting him up as a bankable Week 6 choice versus the Denver Broncos on Thursday night. For what it's worth, Butker is 30-for-30 on all kicking attempts in six career Thursday games. Considering the Chiefs are sizable favorites at home against the 1-4 Broncos, Butker is a confident fantasy start, having also cracked double figures in fantasy points in three straight weeks. It could be a windy night at Arrowhead Stadium on Thursday, so this potential factor is worth monitoring.

Harrison Butker A Top-Five Play In Probable Shootout

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker is still flawless on all tries this season, hitting 8-of-8 field goals and 11-of-11 extra points in four outings. Butker remains waiting on the Chiefs offense to really start clicking, which would enhance his weekly prospects a bit. The 28-year-old is tied for 13th place at the position with a pedestrian 36 fantasy points on the campaign. In the confines of U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, however, Butker is an easy top-five play with his squad boasting the second-highest implied team total of the Week 5 slate.

Harrison Butker A Confident Play Versus Jets

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker is 14-for-14 on all kicking attempts so far in three 2023 games. The 28-year-old made a considerable five extra points amid last Sunday's 41-10 drubbing of the Chicago Bears. Butker represents a great bet for a busy day on Sunday against a New York Jets defense that has a propensity to bend but not break. Gang Green has allowed an NFL-high 12 field-goal tries en route to the highest fantasy points per game to kickers (13). The seventh-year man could be called upon often if the Chiefs get ahead of the Jets, and fantasy managers can safely start him as a top-tier choice on Sunday.

Harrison Butker A Reliable Option Versus Bears

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker remains a perfect 7-for-7 on kicks so far on the young season after hitting his lone field-goal attempt and two extra-point tries in Week 2's 17-9 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The 28-year-old should be a dependable Week 3 start versus the 0-2 Chicago Bears, who have permitted the second-most points (65) in the NFL this year. This contest could see the Chiefs play from ahead, so Butker deserves treatment among the elites at the kicker position. K.C. is forecasted to score more points than other offense in Week 3 in this favorable matchup.

Harrison Butker Logs Five Points Against Jaguars

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker sunk his lone field-goal attempt and converted two extra-point tries in Sunday's 17-9 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The 28-year-old nailed a 38-yarder to extend the Chiefs' lead to eight points late in the game. On a day both offenses unexpectedly stagnated, fantasy managers of Butker may have been left disappointed at the lack of production. Week 3's home contest versus Chicago could offer more kicking opportunities, since K.C. may not need to score touchdowns in bunches to top a dysfunctional-looking Bears offense.

Harrison Butker - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker converted all four of his kicks during Week 1's loss to the Detroit Lions. The 28-year-old slots in as an excellent Week 2 play against the Jacksonville Jaguars in a clash that could offer plenty of scoring opportunities. Butker will need to hope Sunday's outing doesn't turn into a touchdown-scoring slugfest between these two exciting offenses, but fantasy managers are setting and forgetting the seven-year kicker in their lineups for the upside, regardless.

Harrison Butker Contributes Eight Points In Week 1

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker made both of his field-goal attempts and two extra-point attempts in Thursday's 21-20 loss to the Detroit Lions. The 28-year-old accounted for all six of KC's second-half points with a 35-yarder and 39-yarder to help keep the scuffling offense in the game. It was a solid 2023 debut for Butker, who hit only 18-of-24 FG tries a year ago. The seven-year veteran is an every-week top-five kicker, and that status shouldn't change next Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars in a contest that projects for plenty of points.

Harrison Butker Looks To Start Rebound From Down Year

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker logged a 75.0% field-goal rate last season, which signified the worst clip of his six-year career. After the 28-year-old missed four games with an ankle injury in the early goings, he drilled a 62-yard FG (the longest of 2022) in his Week 6 return. It's worth mentioning the Chiefs only went for it on fourth down 12 times a year ago, which was tied for the second-lowest mark in football. The Detroit Lions ranked 10th in fantasy points per game to kickers (5.76), but much of that had to do with their failure to resist touchdowns, leading to fewer FG tries. Weather should not a play factor whatsoever on Thursday and few kickers play in an offense as potent as KC's, justifying Butker as a top-tier option for Week 1 in a game that could feature scoring in bunches.
