More opportunities sans Lotulelei?
DTBuffalo Bills
July 29, 2020
Butler, who was acquired by the Bills this offseason, could see more opportunity in 2020 due to Star Lotulelei opting out for the season, Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News reports.
ANALYSIS
The Bills run a rotation throughout their defensive line and it's a deep one at that, but Butler -- a 2016 first-rounder who logged a career-high six sacks last season with the Panthers -- is now expected to be needed that much more. For now, Butler is the most likely choice to assume Lotulelei's starting position, with potential budding star Ed Oliver manning the other tackle spot.

2016 Fantasy Outlook
The Panthers' first-round pick this year, Butler joins a deep and talented defensive front where he should immediately learn while backing up Pro-Bowler Kawann Short and Star Lotulelei. That being said, given Butler's great combination of size and athleticism, the Louisiana Tech product figures to earn more playing time as the season unfolds, particularly if Lotulelei's foot soreness resurfaces.
