Scouting report

ARI WR Brice Butler - 2018 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

As the team's official website notes, the Cardinals passed on big-name wideouts to sign Butler to a two-year, $2.6 million deal in April. He becomes another option for the No. 2 wide receiver role behind star Larry Fitzgerald. Butler has one of the longest resumes among the candidates, with 73 catches for 1,177 yards, and eight touchdowns in five NFL seasons.

Butler hopes previous success against the Cardinals will carry over as he joins them. In 2014, he hauled in a 55-yard pass against the Cardinals while with the Raiders. Last season he played a pivotal role in the Cowboys’ 28-17 win at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Week 3, catching two passes for 90 yards, including a 37-yard touchdown to break a fourth-quarter tie.

Fantasy Downside

He had 15 catches for 317 yards and three scores a year ago for the Cowboys, averaging a robust 21.1 yards per catch. AZCardinals.com's Kyle Odegard explained, however, an average that high generally means a player isn’t getting the lion’s share of targets. That was the case in Dallas as Butler sat behind Dez Bryant, Terrence Williams, and Cole Beasley on the depth chart. The fact he never rose higher—even with Bryant struggling in recent seasons, isn't promising. As Bleacher Report put it, "Butler still hasn't equaled the sum of his parts. He's a highly athletic receiver who doesn't do enough of the little things to ever warrant starter snaps."

2018 Bottom Line

The pecking order in Arizona remains undetermined, with Butler competing against J.J. Nelson, Chad Williams, and rookie Christian Kirk for playing time. So Butler has a chance to establish a role. But fantasy managers shouldn't bank on him doing so until/unless they see evidence of it prior to Week 1.

DAL WR Brice Butler - Week 6, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 at Green Bay
After a nine target performance for Brice Butler in Week 4, the receiver was only targeted three times last week. With Dez Bryant out, QB Dak Prescott has been spreading the ball around. So each, week it will be hard to determine which one will be his favorite. For that reason, keep Butler on the bench, even with a good matchup against the Packers.

DAL WR Brice Butler - Week 5, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs Bengals
Brice Butler is a new face to fantasy because of his Week 4 performance, which saw him targeted nine times. With Dez Bryant still out, Butler has passed Terrance Williams as far as expectations are concerned.

With that said, we have not seen enough of Butler to start him, but he should be at least on your fantasy radar.

OAK WR Brice Butler - Week 17, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 – Brice Butler at Denver Broncos

Brice Butler did not catch a pass in Week 16 and heads into the season finale with just 20 receptions. Butler has shown enough to not be completely ruled out of Oakland’s future plans, but he lacks any kind of fantasy value.

OAK WR Brice Butler - Week 16, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 – Brice Butler vs. Buffalo Bills
Brice Butler hauled in three passes for 23 yards in Week 15. Butler is a player who does not command regular targets, leaving him devoid of fantasy value.

OAK WR Brice Butler - Week 15, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 – Brice Butler at Oakland Raiders
Brice Butler did not catch a pass in Week 14 and has just 17 receptions in 12 games. Butler is not a scrub, but his usage level would have to rise dramatically before any owners should pay serious attention to him.

OAK WR Brice Butler - Week 14, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 – Brice Butler vs. San Francisco 49ers
Brice Butler caught two passes for 27 yards in Week 13. Butler has showed promise this year, which is nice for Oakland as they need all the help they can get, but there is not a single wide receiver on the Oakland roster worth starting in what could be a brutal matchup with San Francisco.
