Brice Butler will compete for a role as the No. 4 receiver for the Cowboys this season behind Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley. Even if he wins that job he would have minimal Fantasy value in the majority of leagues. In 2015, Butler had 12 catches for 258 yards and no touchdowns, and we don't expect a big leap in production. Ignore him in all leagues on Draft Day.
Butler caught four passes on 10 targets for 60 yards in Week 17's loss to Washington. Acquired from the Raiders after Dez Bryant broke his foot, Butler played in only seven games for the Cowboys due to injuries of his own, finishing the season with just 12 catches on 26 targets for 258 yards. He'll be in the mix for a depth spot in 2016 along with Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley, plus anyone the club picks up in the draft or through free agency, but don't expect Butler to fill a large role in the Dallas offense.
Butler caught four passes on nine targets for a team-high 74 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bills. Dez Bryant (foot) got the day off, which opened the door for Butler to make a couple of impressive catches. The former Raider hasn't been healthy enough in Dallas to really show what he can do, but another solid performance in Week 17 against Washington should put him in the club's 2016 plans.
Butler (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Miami, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Set for a fourth consecutive absence, Butler is unlikely to have a key role at any point before the end of the season, as Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley are all relatively healthy.
Butler (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay, David Helman of the Cowboys' official website reports. Butler's absence won't have much impact now that Dez Bryant is healthy. Butler will likely just be fourth or fifth on the depth chart when he's ready to return.
Butler (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles, David Helman of DallasCowboys.com reports. Butler logged full practices Wednesday and Thursday, but he was then downgraded to a non-participant for Friday. He may have suffered a setback, but even if he were healthy, he'd only be the No. 4 or 5 wide receiver.
