Per Pro Football Focus, Dak Prescott's 154.4 QB rating when targeting Brice Butler is the highest for any receiver with at least 10 targets.
On just 11 looks, Butler has an absurd eight catches for 207 yards and two touchdowns. That's more yards and scores than Terrance Williams, who has drawn eight more targets and played 133 more snaps. It would seem the Cowboys have an easy decision to make, but it's seemed like that since last season. Oct 24 - 7:36 PM

Brice Butler caught both of his targets for 57 yards in the Cowboys' Week 5 loss to the Packers.

Butler got loose for a 49-yard gain in the scramble drill in the first quarter, but he was not targeted again until late in the game. Butler has made some big plays and scored two touchdowns the last three games, but he is not getting enough volume to be a real fantasy option.
Oct 8 - 9:01 PM

Brice Butler caught 2-of-2 targets for 12 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 4 loss to the Rams.

Butler has scored in consecutive games, but the Cowboys don't use him enough for Butler to be a usable fantasy play. That could change if Terrance Williams got hurt, but for now Butler is value-less beyond deep Dynasty stashes.
Oct 1 - 5:43 PM

Brice Butler caught both of his targets for 90 yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 3 win over the Cardinals.

Talk about making the most of your targets. Butler scored a 37-yard touchdown on his first reception, catching a beautiful ball from Dak Prescott who was on the run, and Butler then hauled in a 53-yard bomb over the top of Tyrann Mathieu in the fourth quarter to set up Ezekiel Elliott's game-sealing eight-yard touchdown two plays later. Butler is only a deep-league bench stash.

Brice Butler (ankle) is active for Week 3 against the Cardinals.

He's good to go as the No. 4 receiver as a deep threat but isn't a fantasy factor.
Sep 25 - 7:21 PM

Brice Butler (ankle) was limited at Friday's practice.

It's only notable with Terrance Williams looking doubtful for Monday. The Cowboys could be down to Noah Brown opposite Dez Bryant.
Sep 22 - 5:12 PM

Cowboys WR Brice Butler has a sprained foot.

The team is seeking a second opinion. The speed demon was the team's No. 4 receiver last season, and is slated for a similar role in 2017.
Aug 10 - 4:08 PM

Cowboys re-signed WR Brice Butler to a one-year, $1.1 million contract.

Butler caught 16-of-33 targets for 219 yards and three touchdowns across 447 snaps last season as the Cowboys' No. 4 receiver. He's hoping for a bigger role, but we doubt it comes with the Cowboys likely to replace free agent Terrance Williams as the No. 2 behind Dez Bryant. Butler is just a deep threat.
Mar 8 - 12:14 PM

Brice Butler caught his lone target for a 21-yard touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 16 win over the Lions.

Butler has now posted back-to-back one-catch, 21-yard games. His touchdown capped the opening series and was an absolute dime from Dak Prescott down the seam. Butler has three touchdowns as the No. 3/4 receiver.
Tue, Dec 27, 2016 12:37:00 AM

Brice Butler caught 1-of-3 targets for a 20-yard touchdown Week 6 against the Packers.

Butler's touchdown was a toe-tap grab on a beautiful throw by Dak Prescott late in the first half. Butler had two more opportunities for big plays, but he could not come down with a tough catch on the sideline and dropped another great throw by Dak in the second half. With Dez Bryant expected back after the bye, Butler is headed back to the bench.

Brice Butler caught 2-of-3 targets for 20 yards in the Cowboys' Week 5 win over the Bengals.

Butler couldn't repeat his touchdown magic from last week, getting an early-game TD wiped off the board by penalty. Butler is the direct backup for Dez Bryant (knee), whose Week 6 status against the Packers is unclear.
Sun, Oct 9, 2016 07:18:00 PM

Brice Butler caught 5-of-9 targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 4 win over the 49ers.

Butler led all Cowboys wide receivers in snaps played (62) and was targeted twice by Dak Prescott in the end zone, securing the first. Butler's playing time is entirely contingent on Dez Bryant's (knee) health. An in-game report from Jay Glazer indicated Dez has a shot to return in Week 5 versus Cincinnati.

Cowboys WR Brice Butler said he is "more confident" in the offense this season.

The Cowboys traded for Butler after Dez Bryant broke his foot in the season opener last year. Butler did not do much while Bryant was out the first time, but he did manage eight catches for 134 yards over the final two weeks of the season. With Bryant likely to miss time again with a hairline fracture in his knee, Butler should get his chance in the starting lineup. He is an interesting sleeper against the 49ers.

Brice Butler caught three passes for 74 yards and a touchdown in Saturday’s preseason game.

Butler got most of his yards on a 58-yard catch. He was Dak Prescott’s top target, scoring on a one-yard fade. Butler has four catches for 96 yards through the first two preseason games.
Sat, Aug 20, 2016 08:25:00 AM's Bryan Broaddus does not foresee Brice Butler pushing for Terrance Williams' starting job.

Butler has practiced strictly at X receiver -- Dez Bryant's (foot, ankle) position -- during OTAs, while Williams is locked in at Z. Broaddus believes Butler is Bryant's direct backup, not a threat to Williams at flanker. A 6-foot-3, 214-pound fourth-year speedster, Butler averaged 21.5 yards on 12 catches last season. He'll try to carve out a role as a situational deep threat.
