Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 8 vs PHI (3 / 1 / 19 / 0 rec)

Butler is back to marginal playing time with Dez Bryant back in the lineup. Butler was fifth on the team in targets and his snaps were understandably low. Butler will need an injury to Bryant or Terrance Williams to reemerge later in the season.

2016 Week 6 vs GB (3 / 1 / 20 / 1 rec)

Butler had more snaps than incumbent Terrance Williams with Dez Bryant still out of the lineup against Green Bay. Butler's lone highlight was the one of the best plays by a Cowboys player all game. On a sideline target, Butler beats the defensive back and taps his toe just in-bounds with full extension for a touchdown before the first half ended. Butler has prototypical physical traits and continues to make positive plays with his expanded opportunities. At a minimum, Butler will sap playing time and targets from Williams as a secondary receiver with Dez Bryant back. At a maximum, Butler can take Williams' job by later in the season.

2016 Week 5 vs CIN (3 / 2 / 20 / 0 rec)

Butler once again saw strong snaps numbers with Dez Bryant out of the lineup at 81%. The Dallas pass game did not require much in the comfortable home win, however, limiting Butler's targets. Butler showed quality hands on an out route reception. His most notable play, a red zone slant for a touchdown, was called back by penalty. Butler came wide open early in the route.

2016 Week 4 vs SF (9 / 5 / 41 / 1 rec)

Butler saw a hearty 28% of the team targets as a starter against San Francisco as Dez Bryant missed the game. Butler flashed with two strong games to close 2015 for Dallas and found his opportunity for significant playing time this week with Bryant out of the lineup. Butler is a size-speed specimen who has progressed during his NFL career. While Butler logged just 41 yards in the box score, his performance was far more impressive. Butler showed the entire spectrum of receiver skills this week, including a route tree spectrum of work, acumen after the catch, and rangy ball skills. Butler high-pointed a slant route reception and made plays through contested situations. Butler nearly made two highlight plays in addition to his goal line touchdown reception, making a quality extension on an out route but being just out-of-bounds, and nearly hauling in a back shoulder end zone target to ice the game in the closing minutes. Butler is on the map at a minimum during Dez Bryant's absence and could push incumbent secondary receiver Terrance Williams for playing time long-term.
