Harrison Butker: Misses twice in win

Butker missed one of his four field-goal attempts and one of his two extra-point tries in Sunday's 22-17 AFC divisional-round win over the Browns.

Analysis: Butker converted from 50, 28 and 33 yards, but missed his first PAT and hit the left upright with a 33-yarder to begin the second half. Despite putting together another double-digit point outing, Butker has now missed 10 kicks this season, giving him some vulnerability heading into Sunday's AFC Championship Game versus the Bills.

Harrison Butker: Limited to PATs

Butker did not attempt a field goal but made all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 38-21 loss to the Chargers.

Analysis: Butker's opportunities were limited with Kansas City's offense resting its most explosive players. With three points Sunday, Butker finished the regular season with 123 total, placing him 11th league-wide among kickers but marking a new low over his four years to date.

Harrison Butker: Minimal usage in Week 16

Butker knocked home his lone field-goal attempt and both of his extra-point attempts in Week 16 versus the Falcons.

Analysis: Butker's run of perfection in the kicking game extended to six straight games Sunday, with Butker going 10-for-10 on field goals and 18-for-18 on extra points over that span. He should have a few opportunities to add to his perfect streak in the regular-season finale but it's worth noting that the Chiefs could rest some of the usual starters with the No. 1 seed in the AFC already locked up.

Harrison Butker: Continues perfect stretch

Butker connected on his lone field-goal attempt and all three of his extra points Sunday versus the Saints.

Analysis: Butker has not missed a kick in any of the last five games, hitting true on all nine of his field-goal attempts and 16 of his extra-point tries. He remains a viable fantasy option in the last two weeks of the regular season, but it's worth noting he has topped two field-goal attempts just once over the last five games.

Harrison Butker: Does what's asked of him

Butker knocked home his lone field-goal attempt and all of his four extra-point attempts Sunday versus the Dolphins.

Analysis: While Butker's minimal usage as a field-goal kicker won't help win any fantasy leagues, he at least made his lone attempt of the day and added some extra value by converting all of his four extra-point tries. He has gone four straight weeks without misfiring on a kick after missing at least one in six of the eight games between Weeks 2 and 9. The Chiefs round out the season with a trio of opponents allowing average to above-average production from opposing fantasy kickers, so Butker could be in for more usage down the stretch.

Harrison Butker: Connects on five field goals

Butker nailed all five of his field-goal attempts in Sunday's game versus the Broncos.

Analysis: Butker was called on for more than three attempts for the first time all season Sunday thanks to a stingy Broncos defense, and he made more than two kicks for just the third time. He only attempted one extra point on the day but served as the team's primary source of scoring on the day, accounting for 15 of the team's 22 points on the board. With some potentially high-scoring contests rounding out the 2020 season, Butker could be in line for a strong fantasy finish.

Harrison Butker: Perfect in kicking game

Butker knocked home both of his field-goal attempts and all three of his extra-point attempts Sunday versus the Buccaneers.

Analysis: After a pair of zero field-goal attempt games in two of the previous three weeks, Butker made his mark again Sunday and needed to in a three-point win. He remains one of the best fantasy kicker options operation behind the league's second-highest scoring offense (31.6 points per game).

Harrison Butker: Another barren field goal day

Butker didn't attempt a field goal but knocked home all of his five field-goal attempts during Sunday's game versus the Raiders.

Analysis: Butker has now attempted no field goals in two of the last three games after attempting at least one in each of the first seven contests and a total of 14 over that span. He was at least perfect on his extra-point tries and could be needed more frequently next week versus a Tampa Bay squad coming off of a tough loss Monday to the Rams.

Harrison Butker: Solid day despite pair of misses

Butker tallied two field goals and three extra points Sunday versus the Panthers.

Analysis: On the downside of Butker's stat line is that he misfired on a pair of kicks, so there were potential points left off the board yet again. The fourth-year kicker missed from inside of 50 yards just once all of last season but has already done so twice and has missed six extra-point attempts after knocking home 45 of 48 in 2019. While both present a mild concern, it's not enough of an issue at this point to worry about his job security.

Harrison Butker: Easy day in kicking game

Butker knocked home all five of his extra-point attempts Sunday versus the Jets.

Analysis: Butker didn't have to attempt a field goal Sunday in what turned into a lopsided affair, but he at least busted a string of missing an extra-point attempt in four of the last five games. Next up is a Carolina defense that has held opponents to 27 or fewer points in each of the last six games, though there aren't many teams who can match the Chiefs' offense.

November 3, 2020 8:52 AM EST

Harrison Butker: Big day in kicking game

Butker nailed all three of his field-goal attempts and knocked home four of his five extra-point attempts Sunday versus the Broncos.

Analysis: Butker continues to be accurate on field-goal attempts, missing just one of his first 14 through seven games, but he continues to work through some issues on extra-point tries, having missed one in each of the last five games he has attempted one. Despite the minor struggles in that department, Butker's ability to clean up drives with field goals should continue to pay the biggest dividends from a fantasy standpoint.

Harrison Butker: Misses another PAT

Butker finished Monday's game versus the Bills 2-for-2 on field-goal attempts while connecting on just two of his three extra-point tries.

Analysis: While Butker has misfired on just one field goal through the first six weeks, he's begun a troubling trend of missing on extra-point attempts, missing one in four of the last five contests. Fortunately, it hasn' cost the Chiefs a game to date but it's something to monitor as the season progresses. Kansas City is averaging north of 29 points per contest through the first six, so there is plenty of reason to believe Butker will continue to get his opportunities in the kicking game.

October 20, 2020 9:24 AM EST

Harrison Butker: Returns to form

Butker knocked home his lone field-goal attempt and each of his three extra-point attempts Sunday versus the Raiders.

Analysis: Butker had some recent struggles with extra points, missing one in each of the last three contests, so his return to form Sunday should calm any potential concerns in that department. Next up is a Bills defense that may be able to slow down the Chiefs enough to force additional field-goal attempts in Week 6.

October 13, 2020 9:21 AM EST

Harrison Butker: Nearly perfect Monday

Butker knocked home both of his field-goal attempts and two of his three field-goal attempts Monday versus the Patriots.

Analysis: Butker has surprisingly misfired on an extra-point attempt in each of the last three weeks after missing just three of his 48 attempts last season. On the plus side, he was perfect on field goals, which are much more valuable from a fantasy perspective. Butker has attempted at least two field goals in three of the four games and should continue to see ample attempts behind a high-powered Chiefs offense.

Harrison Butker: Uncharacteristic Week 3 outing

Butker missed his only field goal attempt as well as one of his four extra-point tries in Monday night's 34-20 win over the Ravens.

Analysis: Butker followed his Week 2 heroics with an unusually poor performance. He not only went wide left on his first PAT attempt, but also missed the same way on a 42-yard field goal prior to halftime. Through three games, Butker has now misfired on a pair of extra points, with Monday's inaccurate attempt contributing toward a season-low of four points total.

Harrison Butker: Nails game winner

Butker was a perfect 3-for-3 on field goals, including a game-winning kick from 58 yards out in overtime, Sunday versus the Chargers.

Analysis: The only blemish on his record was a blocked PAT, which marked the first miss of any kind so far this season in his kicking game. Even more impressive, Butker hit a pair of kicks from beyond 50 yards Sunday, which can pay major dividends in some fantasy formats. Kansas City's road doesn't get any easier with the Ravens on tap next week, an opponent who could limit field-goal attempts.

September 22, 2020 10:25 AM EST

Harrison Butker: Starts season perfect

Butker connected on his two field-goal attempts and all four of his extra-point attempts in Thursday's opener versus the Texans.

Analysis: Butker didn't face any particularly challenging kicks to open the 2020 season, but he seems well on his way to another solid showing fueled by an explosive Kansas City offense.

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.

January 6, 2020 2:58 PM EST

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.

December 24, 2019 10:42 AM EST

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.
