2019 Fantasy Outlook
Butler is a towering figure at 6-5, 227 pounds with 35 and 1/4-inch arms that afford him an absurd catch radius, yet he boasts above average athleticism even at his oversized build. His 4.48 speed and 128-inch broad jump illustrate the profound downfield threat he poses, and his Iowa State tape features numerous instances of him jumping over and/or running away from defenders. He fell to the fourth round probably due to drop issues, and perhaps concerns about his ability to get a clean release in his NFL routes. His speed is more long than sudden, and at his size he's an easy jam target, so his applicability on short drops is a fair concern. Butler looked like a long-term project even before a preseason hand fracture landed him on IR. Read Past Outlooks

Moved to injured reserve
WRArizona Cardinals
August 25, 2019
The Cardinals placed Butler (hand) on injured reserve Sunday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.
Butler was in a precarious spot before being diagnosed with an avulsion fracture early last week. Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk are locked into the top two spots at wide receiver for the Cardinals; fellow rookies Andy Isabella and KeeSean Johnson looked far more comfortable in the offense; and holdover Trent Sherfield picked up where he left off from the second half of last season. The final nail in Butler's coffin was the injury, which was followed by the signing of veteran wideout Michael Crabtree. Because Butler landed on IR before Week 1, he'll remain there for the entirety of his rookie campaign.
