Butker signed a five-year contract extension worth roughly $20 million with the Chiefs on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
One of the most notable kickers in fantasy thanks to his team context, Butker has proved to be an effective pro since being claimed off waivers from the Panthers ahead of the 2017 campaign. Since then, Butker has converted 62 of 69 field-goal attempts (90 percent) and 93 of 97 PATs, taking advantage of a tie for the league lead in FGA in 2017 (42) before having to settle for the league lead in extra points in 2018 (69 attempts). This new contract lands the 23-year-old in the top 10 of all kickers league-wide and sets the stage for Butker to return as a top fantasy option in 2019 as the leg behind the high-powered Chiefs offense.

The Chiefs signed Butker, an exclusive rights free agent, on Monday, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Butker has benefited from the high-flying Kansas City offense in his first two pro seasons, ranking fourth with 142 points in 2017 and third with 137 last year. He's also exhibited accuracy, with an 89.9 percent success rate on field goals and 95.9 percent on point-after tries. Because Patrick Mahomes is under center and the skill positions are loaded with talent, Butker shouldn't have a problem upholding his standard in the fall.

Butker made his only field-goal attempt (from 39 yards) en route to scoring seven points in Sunday's AFC Championship.
EDGE Analysis
Butker was one of the top kickers during the regular season and he continued his high play in the postseason. After making all 16 of his field goals from under 40 yards in the regular season, he went 2-for-2 in the playoffs from the same range while also hitting all eight of his extra point attempts.

Butker knocked home 24 of his 27 field-goal attempts and 65 fo his 69 extra-point attempts during the 2018 season.
EDGE Analysis
Butker was perfect on all of his field goals from within 40 yards, while two of his three misfires came from over 50 yards out. He did hit a bit of a snag in the middle of the season where he missed some extra points, but the second-year kicker connected on all 14 of them over the final four weeks. He should be one of the first kickers off the board in 2019 as part of a Chiefs squad that should feature a high-powered offense once again.

Butker converted all four of his extra-point attempts Thursday against the Chargers.
EDGE Analysis
Butker didn't attempt a field goal Thursday for just the second time all season and the first since Week 2 against the Steelers. He did post a second straight week of perfection on PATs after having a hiccup in four of the last six contests, so that's at least encouraging. He should have a good opportunity to get back on the board, in terms of field goals, next Sunday against the Seahawks.

Butker converted all three of his extra-point attempts Sunday against the Ravens, but he missed a pair of his four field-goal attempts in the contest.
EDGE Analysis
Butker's misses didn't turn out to be too costly for the Chiefs, as they wound up taking home the victory in overtime regardless. The second-year kicker's return to perfection on extra-point attempts is encouraging, though he failed to come through in the clutch on a last-second field goal during the contest. He could have an opportunity to make up for it in what should be a close contest Thursday against the Chargers.

Butker made his only field-goal attempt from 21 yards and made six of his seven extra-point attempts Monday against the Rams.
EDGE Analysis
Butker was busy all night in a game that featured one of the highest scores in NFL history. The Georgia Tech product will likely be a top fantasy option playing for one of the best offenses in the league after the Chiefs return from bye in Week 13.

Butker connected on both of his field-goal attempts and his extra-point attempts Sunday against the Cardinals.
EDGE Analysis
Butker settled back in Sunday after missing a pair of extra points in the last two weeks. He remains one of the top kicking options in fantasy playing for one of the best offenses in the league, though a tough matchup awaits against the Rams.

Butker sent him his only field-goal attempt from 39 yards and made four of his five extra-point attempts Sunday against the Browns.
EDGE Analysis
Butker has now missed wide on a pair of extra-point attempts after not missing a single one in his career prior to the two contests. Still, there's nothing to suggest the Chiefs brass is losing faith in him and Butker kicks for one of the more explosive offenses in the league.

Butker knocked home his only field-goal attempt Sunday, but he hit only three of his four extra-point tries.
EDGE Analysis
Butker was a perfect 50-for-50 on extra-point attempts entering Sunday's contest, but he failed to knock home his second try against the Broncos. He's still been one of the most consistent kickers in the league and kicks for one of the NFL's most explosive offenses, making Butker a must-own in most formats.
