2019 Fantasy Outlook
Butker predictably lost some of his ridiculous FG volume from 2017, making up for it with the league lead in PATs. He now figures to bounce back the other way, as even Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes are unlikely to sustain last year's 73.1 percent red-zone TD rate (third highest in the NFL since 2015). Regardless of the FG/PAT split, Butker is a good kicker with strong job security in a great offense. Read Past Outlooks

Signs five-year extension

June 13, 2019
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 behind the high-powered Chiefs offense.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Selected by Carolina at the end of last year's draft, Butker lost a camp battle to Graham Gano, then tied for sixth place on the NFL's single-season FGs list after making his pro debut in Week 4 for the Chiefs. It was the perfect storm of accurate kicking combined with an offense that ranked fifth in yards but 29th in red-zone TD percentage. Regression is almost inevitable, but the Chiefs still figure to move the ball.
Drafted in the seventh round this year, Butker is being brought in to compete with kicker Graham Gano. The veteran has been with the Panthers since 2012, but he's coming off heel surgery this offseason, which followed the only campaign in which he converted under 80 percent of Carolina's field-goal attempts. Gano's misses included a few crucial kicks, so Butker could take advantage of his recent problems to make the team during training camp.
