Butker closed out the regular season Saturday versus the Broncos hitting both of his field-goal tries and both of his extra-point attempts.
EDGE Analysis
Butker posted another fabulous campaign from a kicking standpoint in 2021, connecting on 89.3 percent of his field-goal attempts and all but two of his 49 extra-point attempts. His kicking volume hasn't been on quite the level it was earlier in his career, when he attempted 42 field goals in 2017 and 38 field goals in 2019, finishing out the year tied for 18th in makes (25) while finishing 21st in attempts (28). He did salvage some value by finishing fifth among kickers in extra-point conversions (47), which figures to be a big part of his equation behind a high-powered Chiefs offense.

Butker connected on his lone field-goal attempt and all four of his extra-point tries in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.
EDGE Analysis
Butker had multiple made field goals in seven straight games prior to his absence last week after landing on the reserve/COVID-19 list. It was a disappointing return to action for Butker, whose game-tying kick late in the fourth quarter wasn't enough to keep the Bengals from picking up the win. He will aim to finish out the regular season strong this week against the Broncos.

Butker (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, per the NFL's transaction log.
EDGE Analysis
Butker sat out Week 16 after testing positive for the virus, but he's now back on the active roster after clearing the health and safety protocols. Elliott Fry went 3-for-4 on field-goal attempts and 3-for-4 on PATs in his absence before being released Tuesday. Butker is 22-for-25 on field goals and 41-for-43 on extra points through 14 games and has now reclaimed kicking duties for Kansas City heading into the final two games of the regular season.

Butker (illness) won't be activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of the Chiefs' Week 16 game against the Steelers after he tested positive for the virus Monday, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Though vaccinated players that test positive for the virus are eligible to be removed from the NFL's COVID-19 protocol in as little as one day if asymptomatic, unvaccinated players that test positive are subject to automatic 10-day quarantines. While head coach Andy Reid hasn't officially ruled Butker out, Sweeney's report confirms that the kicker is following the protocol for unvaccinated players, making him ineligible to play Sunday. The Chiefs already telegraphed that Butker won't be available Week 16 when they signed kicker Elliott Fry off their practice squad Monday, a transaction that would normally be made at the end of the week. Assuming Butker is feeling healthy by the time his 10-day quarantine ends, he should reclaim kicking duties Week 17 in Cincinnati on Jan. 2.

Butker (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.
EDGE Analysis
Butker was one of a handful of Chiefs players to land in the NFL's health and safety protocols Monday. If he remains in protocols for Week 16, then Kansas City will likely have to make a move for a replacement kicker. Elliott Fry, who was signed to the Chiefs' practice squad last week, would be the most likely candidate to join the active roster during Butker's potential absence.

Butker converted both of his field-goal attempts and all six of his extra-point tries in Sunday's blowout win over the Raiders.
EDGE Analysis
Butker's fantasy value greatly benefits from the Chiefs' recent offensive surge, as he's attempted a combined 13 kicks over the past two games and 26 over the past four. The Chiefs seem to be peaking at the right time for fantasy managers and the team alike, with fantasy playoffs kicking off this week in many leagues and the NFL's playoffs only five weeks away.

Butker connected on all three of his field-goal attempts and one of his two extra-point tries Sunday against the Broncos.
EDGE Analysis
After missing just one kick through the first nine weeks, Butker has misfired at least once in each of the last three contests. He still hasn't missed on a field goal from inside of 40 yards at this point and has just two missed PATs on his 2021 resume, so there isn't much to worry about at this point. On a positive note, Butker has attempted three or more field goals in each of the last three games after trying no more than two through the first nine games, so there's a reason for optimism regarding his fantasy outlook moving forward.

Butker missed one of three field-goal attempts and one of two extra-point tries in Sunday's 19-9 win over the Cowboys.
EDGE Analysis
Butker started by missing his opening PAT, but he subsequently converted a 37-yard field goal on Kansas City's next drive. After a PAT and a 53-yard make next, Butker ended by going wide right on a 51-yard attempt. Overall, it was a shaky performance from the veteran, who has now missed at least one kick in back-to-back games going into the bye week.

Butker finished 2-for-3 on field goals and 5-for-5 on extra-point attempts Sunday versus the Raiders.
EDGE Analysis
Butker's miss Sunday evening marked just his second of the season and his first from inside of 50 yards. On the positive side of things, the Chiefs' offense seems to be headed in the right direction again, giving Butker a season-high eight combined kicking attempts between field goals and extra points Sunday. With Dallas up next, the Chiefs will likely need to light up the scoreboard again in a battle of two high-powered offenses.

Butker nailed his two field-goal attempts and his lone extra-point try Sunday versus the Packers.
EDGE Analysis
Butker has just one misfire in the kicking game all season, and that came on an attempt from more than 50 yards away. He's one of the more reliable kickers at this point, though the Chiefs' offense has been a bit of a letdown this season, shrinking his opportunities to post fantasy points.
