A 2014 UDFA, Butler opened his 2015 season buried on the Baltimore depth chart, but injuries eventually allowed him to work as the No. 2 receiver. He caught three or more passes in each of the final seven games, posting a 30-342-0 receiving line (on 42 targets) during that stretch. Although he probably did enough to lock down a roster spot for 2016, Butler will presumably drift back toward the bottom of the depth chart unless the
Butler, a 2014 UDFA, emerged as Baltimore's No. 2 wide receiver by the end of the season, catching three or more passes in each of the team's last seven games. He needed a few injuries ahead of him to get the opportunity, but even without any touchdown catches, he posted impressive efficiency numbers for a guy playing with replacement-level quarterbacks. The
Jeremy Butler caught three passes for 38 yards on six targets in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Steelers.
As evidenced by his 66 snaps (out of a possible 75) in Sunday's game, Butler has emerged from the Baltimore Ravens ' committee alongside Kamar Aiken at wide receiver. Chris Givens and Chris Matthews also played key roles in Sunday's victory, but it's Butler who has averaged 5.8 targets over the last six games, with at least four targets and three catches in each contest. He figures to see a similar workload in Week 17 against the Bengals, and he's even made a strong case to stay heavily involved next year.
Jeremy Butler caught seven passes for 72 yards on a team-high 10 targets in Sunday's 35-6 loss to the Seahawks.
Butler is the closest thing the Baltimore Ravens have to a No. 2 wide receiver, but he's still a distant second to Kamar Aiken in an offense that has little hope for improvement. Butler's efficiency (19 catches on 24 targets) won't go unnoticed, and he should have the opportunity to compete for a key role in the offense next season. Depending on what happens with Steve Smith (Achilles) and Breshad Perriman (knee), there may be a ton of targets up for grabs heading into training camp. As for the more immediate future, Butler will likely return to single-digit targets in Week 15 against a tough Kansas City defense. He had either four or five targets in each of the three games prior to Sunday's outburst.
Jeremy Butler caught four passes for 43 yards on five targets in Sunday's 15-13 loss to the Dolphins.
Butler has been very efficient with limited volume through the first four games of his career, catching 11 passes for 136 yards on 12 targets. He's played the majority of offensive snaps the past two weeks, but with the Baltimore Ravens ' Matt Schaub-led offense largely relying on Javorius Allen and Kamar Aiken, there isn't much upside to be had with Butler.
