Struggles in collegiate finale

Butler rushed 10 times for 32 yards during Wednesday's Pinstripe Bowl against Boston College.
ANALYSIS
Butler transferred to Iowa for his senior season with hopes of replicating his two previous seasons at Nevada when he amassed over 1,300 yards on the ground. Instead, he played second fiddle to Akrum Wadley and missed four games due to injury, finishing 2017 with fewer than 400 yards and only one touchdown. With both he and Wadley set to graduate, Toren Young, Ivory Kelly-Martin and Toks Akinbirade (undisclosed) will likely battle for the lead role in 2018.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Butler shockingly transferred to Iowa from Nevada this summer, which was a major hit to his fantasy value. Butler would have been a workhorse in Nevada's max-tempo offense, but at Iowa he'll split carries with Akrum Wadley against a much higher level of competition. Still, Butler has a three-down skill set and should still see plenty of work in an offense that made both Wadley and since-graduated Leshun Daniels useful for fantasy owners in 2016.
