Player Outlook
Butker is a top-eight kicker worthy of a pick in the final two rounds of any league that requires you to start a kicker. But injuries and inconsistency from 2022 mean he's not quite as safe a pick as he used to be. He set a career high last year in missed FGs (six) and his FG% (75%) was 13 points lower than any other year of his career. Every indication we have is that Butker will start the year as the only kicker on the Chiefs roster, but it's not inconceivable he could have competition if those struggles return. On the other hand, Butker's role on arguably the best offense in football gives him No. 1 upside at kicker.

  • Chiefs' Harrison Butker: Perfect in win

    Butker made both field-goal attempts and his lone extra-point try in Sunday's 13-12 win over the Chargers. Butker first connected from 22 yards out before making a 41-yard attempt with 54 seconds left in the game, which gave Kansas City the victory. The Georgia Tech product had a stellar campaign, missing just two times on 35 FGAs this season (94 percent).

  • Chiefs' Harrison Butker: Has busy day

    Butker made all six field-goal attempts and his lone extra-point try in Sunday's 25-17 win over the Bengals. Butker was on the field early and often, beginning with point-after attempt on an Isiah Pacheco touchdown and subsequently for six field goals to help push the Chiefs to victory. The Georgia Tech product was good from 54, 43, 27, 24, 48 and 46 yards out in the contest. He's now 31-for-33 this season on FGAs, which is good for a 94% conversion rate. Next up for Butker and the Chiefs is a Week 18 matchup with the Chargers.

  • Chiefs' Harrison Butker: Misses second kick of year

    Butker converted both of his two extra-point tries but missed his only field-goal attempt in Monday's 20-14 loss versus the Raiders. On a day when Kansas City's offense struggled to get much of anything going, Butker only got one chance at a field goal, and he hooked the 36-yarder wide to the left. He's now missed two kicks in two weeks after being perfect through the first 13 games of 2023. The Chiefs will host a soft Bengals defense in Week 17.

  • Chiefs' Harrison Butker: Misses first kick of season

    Butker converted two of his three field-goal attempts and all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 27-17 win at New England. After making all of his first 23 field-goal tries this year, Butker finally suffered a blemish to his stat sheet in Week 15 when he pushed a 39-yard attempt wide right in the first quarter. Kansas City's offense is still very good, and Butker is still nearly automatic, so weather should be the most legitimate concern for him for the remainder of the fantasy season.

  • Chiefs' Harrison Butker: Working at practice Friday

    Butker (illness) took part in Friday's practice, Pete Sweeney of 610 Sports KC reports. Butker appears to be trending in the right direction for Sunday's game at Denver after he sat out of practice Thursday due to an illness. Kansas City will issue its final Week 8 injury report later Friday, when it will be known whether Butker enters the weekend with a designation.

  • Chiefs' Harrison Butker: Perfect again in Week 7

    Butker converted his only field-goal attempt and all four of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 31-17 win versus the Chargers. As is often the case, Kansas City's offense was not to be denied for most of the day Sunday, leaving just one field-goal try for Butker. He still hasn't missed a kick this season, and he's tied to one of the league's top offenses. He's an elite fantasy option headed into a Week 8 matchup at Denver.

  • Chiefs' Harrison Butker: Remains perfect

    Butker made each of his field-goal attempts and all three extra-point tries in the Chiefs' 27-20 win over the Vikings on Sunday. Butker has yet to miss this season, and Sunday, he hit field goals from 38 and 40 yards out. He's now 10-for-10 on the season and is one of 12 kickers who have yet to miss any kicks this season. The Georgia Tech product will be back on the field Thursday night for a Week 6 divisional clash against the Broncos.

  • Chiefs' Harrison Butker: Perfect in Week 1 loss

    Butker converted both of his field-goal attempts and both extra-point tries during Thursday's 21-20 loss to the Lions. Butker is off to a strong start to kick of the 2023 season, though his accuracy wasn't enough to put the Chiefs on top in Thursday's narrow loss. Next week's road matchup against Jacksonville could be a more high-scoring affair for Kansas City, especially if Travis Kelce (knee) is back on the field to assist Patrick Mahomes and the passing game.

  • Chiefs' Harrison Butker: Finishes regular season strong

    Butker connected on his lone field-goal attempt and went 4-for-4 on point-after tries during Saturday's 31-13 win versus the Raiders. Butker nailed all five of his kicks to assist in the Chiefs earning the No. 1 seed -- aside from a playoff scenario that would result in the Bills and Chiefs playing at a neutral site. However, Butker finished the year with the lowest field-goal accuracy (75 percent), the fewest field-goal attempts (24) and the second-fewest extra-point tries of his career, resulting in his worst fantasy campaign. Butker wasn't particularly desirable as a fantasy kicker as a result, finishing outside the top 20 and off the radar in most formats. However, the Chiefs still led the league in scoring at 29.2 points per game, so Butker should be a highly valued target in drafts next season. Butker remains under contract in Kansas City through the 2023 campaign.

  • Chiefs' Harrison Butker: Ready to go

    Butker (back) is active for Saturday's contest against the Raiders, Matt Derrick of ChiefsDigest.com reports. There was some real concern Butker would ultimately miss the regular-season finale, but after an extensive warm-up, the veteran kicker is good to go. It's possible the Chiefs may have to go through this same sort of cadence next week if they're unable to claim the No. 1 seed and first-round bye.

  • Chiefs' Harrison Butker: Slow night in kicking game

    Butker missed his only field goal attempt and all three of his extra-point tries during Sunday's 27-24 win over the Broncos. The Broncos' defense is a challenging fantasy matchup, which played a hand in Butker's relatively slow night in the kicking game. He hasn't quite converted in the kicking game at the same rate he has in every year prior, missing at a higher rate from both inside 50 yards and beyond than he has in any year prior. Butker's fantasy output has been relatively mediocre as a result, but he should remain a popular option as long as he is part of a Chiefs team led by Patrick Mahomes under center.

  • Chiefs' Harrison Butker: Makes one field goal

    Butker connected on his lone field-goal attempt and made all three of his extra-point attempts in Saturday's win over the Seahawks. Butker's only field-goal attempt was good from 47 yards out late in the second quarter. The veteran kicker has now converted 77 percent of his field-goal attempts on the season, which is the lowest success rate of his career. Butker will look to be more efficient in Week 17 when the Chiefs host the Broncos.

  • Chiefs' Harrison Butker: Misfires twice Sunday

    Butker connected on 1-for-2 field-goal attempts and 1-for-2 point-after tries during Sunday's 30-24 overtime win over the Texans. Butker had missed just one kick over the previous four games, so Sunday's showing was a bit disappointing, especially for fantasy teams hoping for a significant playoff effort from him. For those still forging on, Butker and the Chiefs have a good matchup for an offensive explosion next week against a Seattle defense yielding the fourth-most points per game (25.4) this season.

  • Chiefs' Harrison Butker: Perfect again in kicking game

    Butker converted all four of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries during Sunday's 26-10 victory over the Rams. After an empty Week 10 showing, Butker has come back with his two biggest fantasy efforts of the year over the last pair of weeks, knocking home a combined seven field goals and five extra points. He hasn't missed a kick over that span, which is a good sign after he missed at least one in the four games prior. He remains one of the top fantasy options at the position, kicking behind a Chiefs offense that leads the league with 29.6 points per game.

  • Chiefs' Harrison Butker: No field-goal tries in Week 10

    Butker went 3-for-4 on point-after tries during Sunday's 27-17 win versus Jacksonville. Butker left both a point and a fantasy point on the board with his missed PAT, but it would have been a disappointing fantasy showing either way, mainly because the Chiefs never attempted a field goal when in scoring range. It's not exactly a case of going for it on fourth either; the Chiefs have gone for it on fourth just eight times in nine games, tying for the sixth-fewest fourth-down attempts in the NFL. Butker has attempted at least one field goal in every other game, and the early odds peg the Chiefs-Chargers as one of the highest-score contests next week, so Butker should have an excellent chance to bounce back.

  • Chiefs' Harrison Butker: Hits game-winner despite struggles

    Butker connected on two of three field-goal attempts and missed his only extra-point try during Sunday's 20-17 overtime win over Tennessee. After missing just once all year in 2021 from inside 50 yards, Butker has now missed twice from inside 50 in the last two games. He added a missed PAT on his only try in this one, likely leaving a sour taste in his mouth with his first miss on those this season. He's still just a few weeks back from an ankle issue that cost him some time, and Butker has a strong track record in Kansas City, so it's unlikely he's on the hot seat, and he's still kicking for one of the league best offenses in terms of points per game (30.4), so Butker should be rostered in the vast majority of fantasy leagues.

  • Chiefs' Harrison Butker: Misfires once in seven kicks

    Butker went 0-for-1 on field-goal attempts and 6-for-6 on point-after tries during Sunday's 44-23 win against the 49ers. Unfortunately, Butker's lone miss Sunday came on an attempt that counts for the most for fantasy purposes, but he at least knocked home all six of his extra-point tries to maintain some fantasy value. The Chiefs demonstrated their offensive prowess against one of the better defenses in the NFL, which bodes well for his outlook.

  • Chiefs' Harrison Butker: Long make in return

    Butker made two of his three field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Bills. Butker returned from an ankle injury suffered in the season opener to drain a 62-yarder before halftime. While he went wide left with a 51-yard try to begin the third quarter, Butker rallied to make from 44 yards later on. Now that he's healthy again, look for Butker to resurface as one of the league's most productive kickers.

  • Chiefs' Harrison Butker: Will be available Sunday

    Butker (ankle) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's matchup against the Bills. As expected, Butker will be available Week 6 for the first time since spraining his ankle in the season opener. The Chiefs scored 42 points in an overtime win the last time these teams met in the 2021 postseason, so Butker should get plenty of opportunities during his first game back following a four-game absence.

  • Chiefs' Harrison Butker: Practices fully, should play Sunday

    Butker (ankle) practiced fully Thursday. Butker has been sidelined since spraining his ankle Week 1, but he practiced without limitations Thursday and should be good to go for Sunday's game versus the Bills. Chiefs special teams coordinator Dave Toub also said that he expects Butker to play this weekend barring any setbacks, per Adam Teicher of ESPN.com.
