Harrison Butker News

Misses two kicks

Butker missed one of three field-goal attempts and one of two extra-point tries in Sunday's 19-9 win over the Cowboys.

Analysis: Butker started by missing his opening PAT, but he subsequently converted a 37-yard field goal on Kansas City's next drive. After a PAT and a 53-yard make next, Butker ended by going wide right on a 51-yard attempt. Overall, it was a shaky performance from the veteran, who has now missed at least one kick in back-to-back games going into the bye week.

Picking up steam despite misfire

Butker finished 2-for-3 on field goals and 5-for-5 on extra-point attempts Sunday versus the Raiders.

Analysis: Butker's miss Sunday evening marked just his second of the season and his first from inside of 50 yards. On the positive side of things, the Chiefs' offense seems to be headed in the right direction again, giving Butker a season-high eight combined kicking attempts between field goals and extra points Sunday. With Dallas up next, the Chiefs will likely need to light up the scoreboard again in a battle of two high-powered offenses.

Another clean kicking effort

Butiker nailed his two field-goal attempts and his lone extra-point try Sunday versus the Packers.

Analysis: Butker has just one misfire in the kicking game all season, and that came on an attempt from more than 50 yards away. He's one of the more reliable fantasy kicking options at this point, though the Chiefs' offense has been a bit of a letdown this season, shrinking his opportunities to post fantasy points.

Deposits game-winning kick

Butker knocked home both of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point attempts Monday versus the Giants.

Analysis: Butker's fantasy value hasn't been quite on the level that was expected with the Chiefs' offense struggling to rack up points consistently. His kicks Monday included a clutch make from 34 yards with just over a minute left, which proved to be the game-winning tally. The offense may need to kick it in gear next week, however, to keep pace with a streaking Packers squad, which could lead to more kicks for Butker.

First misfire of season

Butker connected on one of his two field-goal attempts Sunday versus the Titans.

Analysis: Butker missed his first kick of the season late in the third quarter Sunday, missing a 57-yard attempt that had little impact on a game sporting a 27-3 score at the time. It was an uncharacteristically poor showing from the Chiefs' offense this week, but the team should have a good chance to bounce back next week versus the Giants.

Still unscathed on kicks

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

Analysis: Butker connected on his second attempt of 50-plus yards in as many weeks and has yet to misfire on a kick this season, going 6-for-6 on field goals and 23-for-23 on extra points. He could have a good amount of chances on tap next week versus a Tennessee defense allowing 26.8 points per game, ninth-most in the league.

Oct 19, 2021 10:59 AM EST

Makes all four kicks

Butker made both his field-goal attempts and both his extra-point tries in Sunday night's 38-20 loss to the Bills.

Analysis: Butker converted from 38 yards to open the scoring before drilling a 54-yarder to end the first half. With eight points total Sunday, he brought his season tally to 34 through five games, surprisingly leaving him in the middle of the pack among kickers league-wide thus far.

Oct 12, 2021 11:08 AM EST

Perfect on PATs

Butker did not attempt a field goal but made all six of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 42-30 win over the Eagles.

Analysis: Butker now has two games without a field-goal attempt this season, restricting his output despite the supporting role he plays to Kansas City's high-powered offense. With only three field goals through four games, he sports just 26 points thus far, but Butker at least hasn't missed a single one of his 20 total attempts.

Oct 5, 2021 11:50 AM EST

Extends perfect kicking streak

Butker nailed his lone field-goal attempt and all three of his extra-point attempts Sunday against the Chargers.

Analysis: Butker has just three field-goal attempts through three games but has made all of them and has added 11 extra-point tries, making him a perfect 14-for-14 on kicks thus far. His perfection streak extends through the final two postseason contests last year as well, so Butker has gone five straight without missing a kick of any kind. The Chiefs offense goes up against an Eagles squad in Week 4 that just surrendered 41 points to the Cowboys on Monday night, so there could be more kicking opportunities ahead.

Sep 28, 2021 11:12 AM EST

Still perfect on kicks

Butker nailed all of his five extra-point attempts Sunday against the Ravens.

Analysis: Butker didn't have the most fantasy-friendly day considering he didn't attempt a field goal, but he at least salvaged it a bit by making all of his five extra-point tries on the drives the Chiefs finished with touchdowns. He's still a valuable fantasy commodity among kickers backing given his accuracy and the fact that he's backing one of the best offenses in the league.

Tallies all of Chiefs' points in Super Bowl LV

Butker connected on all three of his field-goal attempts during Sunday's Super Bowl LV loss to the Buccaneers.

Analysis: Butker did his best to reward the Chiefs' drives into Tampa Bay territory, connecting on two field goals from 49-plus yards out on football's biggest stage. Unfortunately, Butker's first-quarter field goal to open the scoring was the only time Kansas City held the lead all night. He closed out the postseason 7-for-8 on field goals and 6-for-7 on extra-point tries. Butker remains under contract through the 2024 season and figures to be one of the top fantasy kicking options again next season.

Perfect in conference clincher

Butker made his only field-goal attempt and all five of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 38-24 win over the Bills in the AFC Championship Game.

Analysis: Butker converted from 45 yards on his lone field goal, which along with a handful of PATs helped him rebound from missing twice in the divisional round. After that performance, the kicker should be confident ahead of his team's return to Tampa Bay to play in the Super Bowl. In his prior outing at the Bucs' stadium this season, Butker made all five of his kicks for nine points total.

Jan 29, 2021 11:03 AM EST

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.

Jan 18, 2021 5:27 PM EST

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.

Jan 5, 2021 5:37 PM EST

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.

Dec 29, 2020 9:03 AM EST

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.

Dec 22, 2020 9:44 AM EST

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.

Dec 15, 2020 8:53 AM EST

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.

Dec 8, 2020 9:07 AM EST

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).

Dec 1, 2020 10:10 AM EST

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.
