Harrison Butker: Leads NFL in field goals

Butker finished 2019 with a league-high 34 field goals made and finished third for extra-point makes (45) behind Justin Tucker (57) and Wil Lutz (48).

Analysis: Butker missed just one field-goal attempt from inside of 50 yards all season, but he did misfire on three extra-point tries. He has five more years remaining on his contract with the Chiefs and there is nothing to suggest he's falling off in anyway. Given his spot on a high-powered Kansas City squad, Butker should be one of the first kickers off the board in 2020 drafts.

Harrison Butker: Decent kicking day

Butker made both of his field-goal attempts and two of his three extra-point attempts Sunday against the Bears.

Analysis: Butker has now missed three PATs on the season but continues to convert field goals at a high percentage, knocking home at least 89 percent in each of his first three seasons. Butker added another make from 50-plus Sunday, upping his season percentage to 50 from 50 or beyond. From inside the 50, Butker has been superb, nailing 30 of his 31 attempts.

Harrison Butker: Nails three more field goals

Butker converted all three of his field-goal attempts in Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Analysis: Butker didn't attempt an extra-point on the day, as the first touchdown resulted in a botched snap by punter Dustin Colquitt and the second was a two-point conversion to make up the lost points. Even with a tough Bears defense up next, the Chiefs offense should move the ball enough to get Butker tries again in Week 16.

Harrison Butker: Big Week 14 kicking day

Butker punched home all three of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point attempts Sunday against the Patriots.

Analysis: Butker continues to lead the way for points scored among kickers, notching 28 field-goals made and 39 extra-point conversions to total 123 points. The third-year kicker has missed just one try inside of 50 yards all season and should continue to provide plenty of fantasy value working as the kicker for the high-powered Chiefs offense.

Harrison Butker: Flawless in Week 13

Butker nailed his only field-goal attempt and all five of his extra-point attempts Sunday against the Raiders.

Analysis: Butker has missed just four field goals all season, but he was just 1-for-4 from 50-plus yards out prior to Sunday's attempt. After attempting only two field goals combined in the last two weeks, Butker could be in line for more work next week versus a stingy New England defense.

Harrison Butker: Perfect on slow offensive night

Butker knocked home his only field-goal attempt and all three of his extra points Monday against the Chargers.

Analysis: Scoring was scarce to come by Monday in Mexico City, but Butker took advantage of his minimal opportunities in the kicking game. The NFL's top kicker in terms of points has a bye week on tap before the Chiefs return to action in Week 13 to face an Oakland defense surrendering 25.0 points per game.

Harrison Butker: Misses first 50-plus attempt

Butker converted one of his two field-goal attempts and made each of his three extra-point attempts Sunday against the Texans.

Analysis: Believe it or not, Sunday's Week 6 contest marked the first time this season that Butker even attempted a field goal from more than 50 yards out. It sailed wide right to make him 1-for-2 on the day and 11-for-13 on the season. While he's off to a career-low field-goal percentage (85) to open 2019, it's not nearly poor enough to put him in danger of losing the gig.

Harrison Butker: Perfect kicking day

Butker nailed his two field-goal attempts and one extra-point attempt Sunday against the Colts.

Analysis: Butker and the Chiefs had a relatively slow offensive day thanks to injuries popping up across the board. It marked the first time this season the third-year kicker didn't attempt four extra-points. As the Chiefs get healthier in the coming weeks, there should be more opportunities for Butker in the kicking game again.

Harrison Butker: Makes six of seven kicks

Butker knocked home all four of his extra-point attempts and two of his three field-goal attempts Sunday against the Lions.

Analysis: After a perfect first two weeks, Butker has now misfired on a kick (PAT in Week 3) in each of the last two. Each of his misses has come from inside of 40 yards, which is a bit concerning, but the third-year kicker isn't in danger of losing his job and should remain a useable fantasy kicker in most formats.

Harrison Butker: First miss of 2019

Butker knocked home both of his field-goal attempts but went just 3-for-4 on extra-point attempts during Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Analysis: Butker has attempted no fewer than four extra points per game and has made all of his six field-goal attempts, so there's little reason to be concerned with his one misfire. The Chiefs could have a big offensive day ahead again next week versus the Lions.

September 23, 2019 11:25 PM EST

Harrison Butker: Limited to extra points

Butker went 4-for-4 on extra points in Week 2 against the Raiders.

Analysis: While Sunday's game wasn't exactly the shootout many were expecting, Butker's output took a hit more than many others. Still, he's perfect on kicks through two weeks and kicks on a team with one of the more explosive offenses in the NFL, which bodes well for his fantasy outlook moving forward.

September 17, 2019 8:08 AM EST

Harrison Butker: Busy in Week 1

Butker made all four of his field-goal attempts and all four of his extra-point attempts in Sunday's victory over the Jaguars.

Analysis: Coming off of a 2018 season that saw Butker pace the NFL in extra-point makes (65) by a wide margin, Butker picked up right where he left off in Week 1. His four field goals also matched the most he had in a game all of last season, so he's well on his way to outproducing his sophomore season.

Harrison Butker: Signs five-year extension

Butker signed a five-year contract extension worth roughly $20 million with the Chiefs on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: One of the most notable kickers in fantasy thanks to his team context, Butker has proved to be an effective pro since being claimed off waivers from the Panthers ahead of the 2017 campaign. Since then, Butker has converted 62 of 69 field-goal attempts (90 percent) and 93 of 97 PATs, taking advantage of a tie for the league lead in FGA in 2017 (42) before having to settle for the league lead in extra points in 2018 (69 attempts). This new contract lands the 23-year-old in the top 10 of all kickers league-wide and sets the stage for Butker to return as a top fantasy option in 2019 as the leg of the high-powered Chiefs offense.

Harrison Butker: Remaining with Chiefs

The Chiefs signed Butker, an exclusive rights free agent, on Monday, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports.

Analysis: Butker has benefited from the high-flying Kansas City offense in his first two pro seasons, ranking fourth with 142 points in 2017 and third with 137 last year. He's also exhibited accuracy, with an 89.9 percent success rate on field goals and 95.9 percent on point-after tries. Because Patrick Mahomes is under center and the skill positions are loaded with talent, Butker shouldn't have a problem upholding his standard in the fall.

Harrison Butker: Scores seven points Sunday

Butker made his only field-goal attempt (from 39 yards) en route to scoring seven points in Sunday's AFC Championship.

Analysis: Butker was one of the top kickers during the regular season and he continued his high play in the postseason. After making all 16 of his field goals from under 40 yards in the regular season, he went 2-for-2 in the playoffs from the same range while also hitting all eight of his extra point attempts.

January 22, 2019 12:36 PM EST

Harrison Butker: Another strong showing in 2018

Butker knocked home 24 of his 27 field-goal attempts and 65 fo his 69 extra-point attempts during the 2018 season.

Analysis: Butker was perfect on all of his field goals from within 40 yards, while two of his three misfires came from over 50 yards out. He did hit a bit of a snag in the middle of the season where he missed some extra points, but the second-year kicker connected on all 14 of them over the final four weeks. He should be one of the first kickers off the board in 2019 as part of a Chiefs squad that should feature a high-powered offense once again.

January 4, 2019 4:11 PM EST

Harrison Butker: Slow night in Week 15

Butker converted all four of his extra-point attempts Thursday against the Chargers.

Analysis: Butker didn't attempt a field goal Thursday for just the second time all season and the first since Week 2 against the Steelers. He did post a second straight week of perfection on PATs after having a hiccup in four of the last six contests, so that's at least encouraging. He should have a good opportunity to get back on the board, in terms of field goals, next Sunday against the Seahawks.

December 14, 2018 11:22 AM EST

Harrison Butker: Pair of misfires in Week 14

Butker converted all three of his extra-point attempts Sunday against the Ravens, but he missed a pair of his four field-goal attempts in the contest.

Analysis: Butker's misses didn't turn out to be too costly for the Chiefs, as they wound up taking home the victory in overtime regardless. The second-year kicker's return to perfection on extra-point attempts is encouraging, though he failed to come through in the clutch on a last-second field goal during the contest. He could have an opportunity to make up for it in what should be a close contest Thursday against the Chargers.

December 10, 2018 4:12 PM EST

Harrison Butker: Misses fourth PAT of season

Butker knocked home both of his field-goal attempts and four of his five extra-point tries during Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Analysis: While a kicker getting the volume of Butker on the weekly basis is bound to miss on occasion, the fact that he's now missed a PAT in consecutive weeks for the second time this season and four overall is slightly concerning. Still, he's seemingly in no danger of losing his duties and should be owned in nearly all formats kicking for the NFL's most prolific offense.

December 3, 2018 11:24 PM EST

Harrison Butker: Misses XP in loss

Butker made his only field-goal attempt from 21 yards and made six of his seven extra-point attempts Monday against the Rams.

Analysis: Butker was busy all night in a game that featured one of the highest scores in NFL history. The Georgia Tech product will likely be a top fantasy option playing for one of the best offenses in the league after the Chiefs return from bye in Week 13.
