Hakeem Butler
Wide ReceiverWR
Iowa State Cyclones
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Butler had a solid season in 2017, snagging 41 catches on 73 targets for 697 yards and seven scores as the team's No.2 option on the outside. With the departure of Allen Lazard, who saw 27 percent of the targets last year, Butler has what it takes to be his heir apparent. Quarterback Kyle Kempt will be back under center, which is also great news for the massive wideout. Neither Matthew Eaton or Deshaunte Jones pose too much of a threat to Butler's production, as there isn't a ton of experience between the two. Butler figures to be in line for a highly productive season given his above-average size and a promising, if unfulfilled, track record to this point in his career. He's a legitimate candidate to mirror what Lazard was able to do in his final season in Ames. Read Past Outlooks
NFL bound
WRIowa State
January 8, 2019
Butler is declaring for the 2019 NFL Draft, Tommy Birch of The Des Moines Register reports.
The Iowa State receiver brings one of the more unique frames of any wideout in recent years. Butler checks in at 6-foot-6 and 225 pounds with long arms who can eat up space on his routes with his long strides. He's unlikely to blow his testing out of the water, but Butler is a savvy player who knows how to use his frame well to win his individual matchups. He was productive alongside teammate and future NFLer Allen Lazard early in his career before truly breaking out in 2018. Butler caught 60 of 113 targets for 1,318 yards (11.6 YPT) and nine touchdowns in his final collegiate season to become one of the premier wide receivers in a conference full of top-end talent at that position. Butler will be on the wishlists of any team looking to add a big-bodied receiver on the outside.
