Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 17 vs PHI (2 / 2 / 50 / 1 rec)
Butler continued to flash with his tempered opportunities to close out the season. Butler made the two most impactful plays against Philadelphia as Dallas' offense struggled to move the ball most of the game. Butler corralled a high-point deep target and shook free on a red zone slant route for Dallas' lone touchdown. On a mere two targets, Butler led the team in receiving yards. Butler finishes the season averaging more than 20 yards-per-catch and a 20% touchdown rate as arguably the team's best receiver despite being down the depth chart in weekly snaps. Butler signed a minimal one-year contract to remain with Dallas in 2017 and is one of the more intriguing free agents of the position as he as quietly developed in an ancillary role with the Cowboys after flaming out with the Raiders. Butler has prototypical size, movement, and ball skills to excel with more downfield opportunities in the future.
2017 Week 10 vs ATL (1 / 1 / 30 / 0 rec)
Butler made the lone downfield play of Dallas' woeful offensive showing in Atlanta. Butler is averaging more than 24 yards-per-catch on the season as a situational deep threat. Butler's wow play came when the game was still in doubt. Hand-fighting with the defensive back added to the catch difficulty as Butler high-pointed the long sideline target for the third-and-long conversion. Butler also corralled a fake punt reception to convert, aligned as the gunner, but was called for offensive pass interference on the play. Butler continues to make plays with his sparse opportunities.
2017 Week 9 vs KC (3 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Butler has been a situational deep threat for Dallas this season and against Kansas City was no different. An end zone target fell incomplete, but Butler dropped a deep third down target, his most advantageous opportunity of the game. Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams sustained ankle injuries late in this week's game, worth monitoring for an expanded opportunity for Butler in the coming week.
2017 Week 8 vs WAS (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Terrance Williams logged a long gain against Washington in the No.2 role and Butler continues to see situational targets at best. Against Washington, Butler saw a long target, but it was uncatchable down the field. With Cole Beasley sustaining a concussion, Butler could see the field more as the No.3 option if Beasley misses time.
2017 Week 7 vs SF (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
While not logging a reception against the 49ers this week, Butler did draw a long defensive pass interference penalty among his limited snaps. Butler continues to show positive results from his ancillary role and Terrance Williams, the incumbent No.2 receiver, rarely makes an impact. Monitor Butler for increased opportunity as the season progresses.
2017 Week 5 vs GB (2 / 2 / 57 / 0 rec)
Brice Butler continued his big play role for Dallas with two critical receptions. The most notable came on the opening third down of the game as Dak Prescott operated from a congested pocket to deliver a deep throw on a line to Butler. With prototypical size and movement for the position, Butler is an upside element for Dallas if Terrance Williams misses time or is supplanted as the No.2 receiver in base formations.
2017 Week 4 vs LAR (2 / 2 / 12 / 1 rec)
Brice Butler continues to make the most of his ancillary snaps for Dallas' offense. While seeing only two targets, Butler moved well on a broken play in the red zone as Dak Prescott rolled to his left and found Butler for the touchdown.
2017 Week 3 vs ARI (2 / 2 / 90 / 1 rec)
Brice Butler was on the field for only seven snaps against Arizona but was arguably the most impactful for Dallas' offense. Butler corralled both of his deep targets, both high-pointing grabs in contested situations in highlight fashion. Butler has flashed more physical upside than incumbent Terrance Williams, but has remained an ancillary receiver down the depth chart to-date. Butler is a receiver to monitor if his snaps increase as the season progresses with his size, speed, and ball skills combination.
