Brice Butler (hamstring) hopes to return after the Cowboys' bye week.

That would put him on track to return October 25 against the Giants. Butler has been targeted once on 81 snaps this season. He's not a fantasy option.
Oct 6 - 9:06 PM

Brice Butler exited Sunday night's Week 4 game against the Saints with a hamstring injury.

Butler went down at the end of a 67-yard catch in the third quarter. It was his only target of the night. The Cowboys ruled Butler out for the rest of the game.
Oct 4 - 10:32 PM

Cowboys acquired WR Brice Butler from the Raiders for a conditional draft pick.

According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Cowboys will trade their 2016 fifth-rounder for Oakland's sixth-rounder if Butler lasts six games on the roster. A 2013 seventh rounder, Butler has always been an intriguing size/speed prospect. He stands in at 6-foot-3, 215 pounds with 4.4 wheels. He caught 21 passes in 15 games last season, and has put up nice numbers in the preseason, including this year. It's concerning that a team as talent-deficient as Oakland is giving up on him, of course, but GM Reggie McKenzie isn't exactly the best at evaluation. Butler could eventually come into a game-day role for the receiver-needy Cowboys.

Brice Butler's playing time last year was reportedly limited by mental errors.

Butler played on just 29.4 percent of the snaps last season, posting a 21-280-2 line. At 6'3/214 with 4.37 speed, he's capable of much more. We saw that during the preseason, when Butler caught 13 passes for 206 yards with four touchdowns in four games. Whatever the mental issues are, Butler will be a candidate to flash if he can get them cleaned up and get an opportunity. He's a name to monitor.

Brice Butler caught one pass for six yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss at Denver.

Butler appeared in 15 games for the Raiders, but never got a real chance to play significant snaps. He finished with 21-280-2 in his second NFL season. We wouldn't give up on this kid in deep Dynasty formats though, as he's flashed difference-making ability in preseason games. Butler goes 6'3/210 with sub-4.4 speed and will be back for the third year of his rookie contract.

Raiders WR Brice Butler secured 2-of-4 targets for 12 yards and a touchdown in Oakland's Week 10 loss to Denver.

Butler was the recipient of Derek Carr's first touchdown pass, securing a five-yard TD in the second quarter. Butler shares sub-package receiver snaps with Kenbrell Thompkins, Denarius Moore, and Vincent Brown behind starters James Jones and Andre Holmes. Lacking re-draft value, Butler is just a deep Dynasty stash.

Raiders WR Brice Butler caught 2-of-2 targets for 20 yards in Sunday's Week 9 loss to Seattle.

A streak-route specialist in Oakland's offense, Butler never got loose for one of his trademark deep balls. The 24-year-old is the Raiders' No. 4 receiver behind Andre Holmes, James Jones, and Kenbrell Thompkins.

Browns coach Mike Pettine noted that Raiders WR Brice Butler "jumps off the tape."

We've noticed the same thing. Butler was spectacular in the preseason, catching 13 passes for 206 yards with four touchdowns. He's also starting to earn a bigger role in the regular season, as evidenced by his nine targets over the last three weeks. Butler, a 2013 seventh-round pick, should be owned in Dynasty formats.

Raiders WR Brice Butler secured his lone target for 55 yards in Sunday's Week 7 loss to Arizona.

Rotating with Denarius Moore behind Andre Holmes and James Jones, Butler hauled in a 55-yard bomb to set up Darren McFadden's one-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. Although Butler is big and fast and sometimes flashes big-play ability, he doesn't get nearly enough usage to be even a WR6 in fantasy leagues.

Raiders WR Brice Butler secured 3-of-5 targets for 64 yards and a touchdown in Oakland's Week 6 loss to San Diego.

Working as the Raiders' No. 3 receiver this week -- ahead of Denarius Moore and injured Vincent Brown -- Butler converted a 47-yard catch-and-run touchdown midway through the third quarter, giving Oakland a 21-14 lead. It was the first regular season touchdown of second-year man Butler's career. Butler is big and fast, but isn't worth a re-draft addition. He has slight Dynasty value.
Sun, Oct 12, 2014 07:53:00 PM

Brice Butler caught 2-of-3 targets for 30 yards in Oakland's Week 4 loss to the Dolphins.

Butler saw increased run in the absence of Rod Streater, but split time with Vincent Brown behind James Jones and Andre Holmes. The 2013 seventh-rounder has three catches for 28 yards on the season.
Sun, Sep 28, 2014 06:36:00 PM

Raiders declared WR Brice Butler, QB Matt McGloin, CB Chimdi Chekwa, MLB Nick Roach, G Tony Bergstrom, T Matt McCants, and DE Shelby Harris inactive for Week 1 against the Jets.

Butler had a strong preseason, but is still bringing up the rear of the depth chart. Chekwa has a knee injury, while Roach is still sidelined with a concussion. Miles Burris and Kaluka Maiava will pick up the slack for Roach.

Brice Butler caught three passes for 60 yards with two touchdowns in Friday's preseason game against the Packers.

Butler continues to light it up against third-stringers. The 2013 seventh-rounder out of San Diego State now has 11 catches for 178 yards with three touchdowns in three preseason games, surely solidifying his spot on the 53-man roster.

Raiders WR Brice Butler has been diagnosed with a concussion.

It dampens Butler's roster chances, as he's now unlikely to suit up for this weekend's regular-season dress rehearsal. The No. 209 overall pick of last year's draft, Butler caught nine passes across 10 games.
