2019 Fantasy Outlook
Since entering the league as a seventh-round pick in 2013, Butler has spent the entirety of his six-year career as a depth wideout with the speed and size to warrant occasional deep targets. The 6-3, 220-pounder has never translated his physical gifts to the field in the form of anything more than inconsistent production, having maxed out at 21 catches, 317 yards and three touchdowns in any given season. There's room on Miami's depth chart for Butler to carve out a big-play role on designed targets, given that the Dolphins did not select a single wide receiver during the 2019 NFL Draft, but his usage will be restricted due to the presence of Kenny Stills (a more appealing deep threat) and Albert Wilson (a more dangerous threat out of the slot), both of whom possess every-down skill-sets.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
For a seventh-round pick, Butler has done well to avoid the practice squad at any point in his five-year career. A member of the Cowboys the past three seasons, he flashed big-play ability at times, cranking out 17 catches of 20-plus yards in 36 games. That said, he's topped out at 16 receptions (2016), 32 targets (2016), 317 yards (2017), three touchdowns (2016, 2017) and 40.5 percent of the offensive snaps (2016) in a particular campaign in Dallas. Upon putting pen to paper on a contract with the Cardinals, Butler finds himself in a great situation in which to contribute. Beyond Larry Fitzgerald and David Johnson, Butler will compete with J.J. Nelson, 2018 second-rounder Christian Kirk and Ricky Seals-Jones, among others, for targets.
A free agent this offseason, Butler returned to Dallas after suiting up in all 16 games last season for the first time in his career. The former Raider has the size and speed to be dangerous down the field but has never been able to translate his physical gifts into consistent production. Terrance Williams also re-signed with the Cowboys, and the team added Ryan Switzer in the draft, so despite his experience, Butler may need to impress in training camp to hang onto his roster spot.
Butler was traded from the Raiders to the Cowboys last season after Dez Bryant got hurt and made an immediate impression on his new squad by catching his first pass for a 67-yard gain, but he also injured his hamstring on the same play and barely saw the field the rest of the year. He was productive late once he got healthy again, catching eight passes for 134 yards over the final two games, and the team remains intrigued by his size-speed combination. Heading into his fourth NFL season, Butler will be given a chance in camp to push Terrance Williams for the No. 2 WR spot across from Bryant, and if he does manage to emerge with that role he could be a surprisingly useful deep threat.
The Raiders have exceptional depth at the wide receiver position after a busy offseason, and Butler will certainly look to be in the mix in 2015. Oakland drafted Amari Cooper out of Alabama in the first round of the 2015 draft who should slip right into the starting lineup alongside Michael Crabtree, whom the Raiders signed earlier this spring. Spots three through six will be up for grabs entering training camp, and it’s anyone’s game at this point. Although the order is yet to be determined, Butler is expected to fill one of those spots along with Kenbrell Thompkins, Rod Streater and Andre Holmes. The Raiders love Butler’s size (6-3, 215 lbs.) and athleticism which both allow him to go up and make a play on the ball over shorter defenders when it’s in the air. After catching nine balls in his rookie season and 21 a year ago, the third year receiver should continue to trend upward and could emerge as the number three option with a good preseason.
Butler turned 17 targets into nine catches for 103 yards last season (10 games). With the additions of James Jones and Greg Little in the offseason, Butler's opportunities may be even more limited in 2014, assuming he even makes the team.
Butler, a seventh-round pick by the Raiders, will compete for a roster spot during training camp.
