Scores three in win
FSt Kilda Saints
May 1, 2021
Butler scored three goals and two behinds to go with 18 disposals (15 kicks, three handballs) in addition to making nine marks during Saturday's 128-59 win over Hawthorn.
ANALYSIS
Butler hadn't put up anything close to this kind of performance until facing an easier opponent in the Hawks. Whether or not he can maintain this level of production is up to him, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Butler stay sharp as long as the midfield is more consistent behind him.
Scores two in loss
FSt Kilda Saints
August 23, 2020
Butler scored two goals and made five tackles during Sunday's 50-48 loss to Brisbane.
ANALYSIS
Butler has suffered from the forward's curse of not getting enough touches to make up for when he doesn't score, but he's returning to a better standard over his past two matches. If he can keep up this pace, Butler has the talent to provide good value for a forward focused on goals.
Struggles in loss
FSt Kilda Saints
August 10, 2020
Butler logged four disposals and three tackles during Monday's 93-34 loss to Geelong.
ANALYSIS
Butler was held scoreless for the first time all season after racking up 11 goals in the previous four matches. A player of his caliber shouldn't be held down for long, but it's worth being careful when Butler faces other top teams.
Boots career-high four goals in win
FSt Kilda Saints
August 7, 2020
Butler finished with 13 disposals (12 kicks, one handball), four tackles, four goals, one mark and one behind in Thursday's 78-74 victory over the Suns.
ANALYSIS
Butler now sits second in the race to the Coleman medal after kicking a career-best four goals Thursday. After being traded to the Saints during last year's trade period, Butler has emerged as a key forward and certainty has to be in the discussion for an All-Australian selection. The Saints now sit second on the AFL ladder and have been arguably the biggest surprise packet of the season thus far.
Scores twice in win
FSt Kilda Saints
July 25, 2020
Butler scored two goals and made six tackles during Saturday's 73-44 win over Port Adelaide.
ANALYSIS
Butler is in an impressive run of form with at least two goals scored in all but one of the last seven matches. With how few disposals he collects, Butler needs to maintain his goalscoring to be worth selection.
