Butker was a perfect 3-for-3 on field goals, including a game-winning kick from 58 yards out in overtime, Sunday versus the Chargers.
The only blemish on his record was a blocked PAT, which marked the first miss of any kind so far this season in his kicking game. Even more impressive, Butker hit a pair of kicks from beyond 50 yards Sunday, which can pay major dividends in some fantasy formats. Kansas City's road doesn't get any easier with the Ravens on tap in Week 3 -- this is an opponent that could limit field-goal attempts.
Butker connected on both of his field-goal attempts and all four of his extra-point attempts in Thursday's opener versus the Texans.
Butker didn't face any particularly challenging kicks to open the 2020 season, but he seems well on his way to another solid showing fueled by an explosive Kansas City offense.
Butker finished 2019 with a league-high 34 field goals made and finished third for extra-point makes (45) behind Justin Tucker (57) and Wil Lutz (48).
Butker missed just one field-goal attempt from inside of 50 yards all season, but he did misfire on three extra-point tries. He has five more years remaining on his contract with the Chiefs, and there is nothing to suggest he's falling off in any way. Given his spot on a high-powered Kansas City squad, Butker should be one of the first kickers off the board in 2020 drafts.
Butker made both of his field-goal attempts and two of his three extra-point attempts Sunday against the Bears.
Butker has now missed three PATs on the season but continues to convert field goals at a high percentage, knocking home at least 89 percent in each of his first three seasons.

Butker converted all three of his field-goal attempts in Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Butker didn't attempt an extra-point on the day, as the first touchdown resulted in a botched snap by punter Dustin Colquitt, and the second was a two-point conversion to make up the lost points. Even with a tough Bears defense up next, the Chiefs offense should move the ball enough to get Butker tries again in Week 16.
Butker punched home all three of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point attempts Sunday against the Patriots.
Butker continues to lead the way for points scored among kickers, notching 28 field goals made and 39 extra-point conversions to total 123 points.

Butker nailed his only field-goal attempt and all five of his extra-point attempts Sunday against the Raiders.
Butker has missed just four field goals all season, but he was just 1-for-4 from 50-plus yards out prior to Sunday's attempt. After attempting only two field goals combined in the last two weeks, Butker could be in line for more work next week versus a stingy New England defense.
Butker knocked home his only field-goal attempt and all three of his extra points Monday against the Chargers.
Scoring was scarce to come by Monday in Mexico City, but Butker took advantage of his minimal opportunities in the kicking game. The NFL's top kicker in terms of points has a bye week on tap before the Chiefs return to action in Week 13 to face an Oakland defense surrendering 25.0 points per game.
Butker nailed four of his five field-goal attempts and two of his three extra-point attempts Sunday against the Titans.
Butker was perfect on field goals when he took the field for a game-tying attempt with just three seconds remaining. Unfortunately, that didn't go well, with the Titans blocking his 52-yard attempt as time expired. The final missed kick doesn't detract from his solid overall fantasy day, and there's a good chance he will continue seeing opportunities to kick with Patrick Mahomes piloting a high-powered Chiefs offense.
Butker hit on all four of his field-goal attempts and both of his extra-point attempts Sunday against the Vikings.
Butker's last two field goals were the biggest of the day, as he nailed a 54-yard attempt with less than three minutes left to tie it and a 44-yard attempt to win it as the clock ticked to all zeros.

Kickers aren't generally expected to be perfect from deep, but Butker had nailed six of his nine kicks from at least 50 yards out coming into the season, so he has proven he can make them at a reasonable clip.
Butker knocked home each of his three field-goal attempts and three extra-point attempts in Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Butker's effort Sunday marked the third time in seven games that he's attempted at least three field goals. He's tallied the most extra-point attempts in the league through the first seven weeks, though it's come at the expense of fewer field goals compared to some of his fellow kickers. The loss of Patrick Mahomes for some time could slow the Chiefs offensively a bit, which may lessen Butker's impact inthe short term.
Butker converted one of his two field-goal attempts and made each of his three extra-point attempts Sunday against the Texans.
Believe it or not, Sunday's Week 6 contest marked the first time this season that Butker even attempted a field goal from more than 50 yards out. It sailed wide right to make him 1-for-2 on the day and 11-for-13 on the season. While he's off to a career-low field-goal percentage (85) to open 2019, it's not nearly poor enough to put him in danger of losing the gig.
Butker nailed his two field-goal attempts and one extra-point attempt Sunday against the Colts.
Butker and the Chiefs had a relatively slow offensive day thanks to injuries popping up across the board. It marked the first time this season the third-year kicker didn't attempt four extra points. As the Chiefs get healthier in the coming weeks, there should be more opportunities for Butker in the kicking game again.
Butker knocked home all four of his extra-point attempts and two of his three field-goal attempts Sunday against the Lions.
After a perfect first two weeks, Butker has now misfired on a kick (PAT in Week 3) in each of the last two. Each of his misses has come from inside of 40 yards, which is a bit concerning, but the third-year kicker isn't in danger of losing his job and should remain a useable fantasy kicker in most formats.
Butker knocked home both of his field-goal attempts but went just 3-for-4 on extra-point attempts during Sunday's game against the Ravens.
Butker has attempted no fewer than four extra points per game and has made all of his six field-goal attempts, so there's little reason to be concerned with his one misfire. The Chiefs could have a big offensive day ahead again next week versus the Lions.
Butker went 4-for-4 on extra points in Week 2 against the Raiders.
While Sunday's game wasn't exactly the shootout many were expecting, Butker's output took a hit more than many others. Still, he's perfect on kicks through two weeks and kicks on a team with one of the more explosive offenses in the NFL, which bodes well for his fantasy outlook moving forward.
Butker made all four of his field-goal attempts and all four of his extra-point attempts in Sunday's victory over the Jaguars.
Coming off of a 2018 season that saw Butker pace the NFL in extra-point makes (65) by a wide margin, Butker picked up right where he left off in Week 1. His four field goals also matched the most he had in a game all of last season, so he's well on his way to outproducing his sophomore season.
Butker signed a five-year contract extension worth roughly $20 million with the Chiefs on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
One of the most notable kickers in fantasy thanks to his team context, Butker has proved to be an effective pro since being claimed off waivers from the Panthers ahead of the 2017 campaign. Since then, Butker has converted 62 of 69 field-goal attempts (90 percent) and 93 of 97 PATs, taking advantage of a tie for the league lead in FGA in 2017 (42) before having to settle for the league lead in extra points in 2018 (69 attempts). This new contract lands the 23-year-old in the top 10 of all kickers league-wide and sets the stage for Butker to return as a top fantasy option in 2019 as the leg behind the high-powered Chiefs offense.
The Chiefs signed Butker, an exclusive rights free agent, on Monday, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports.
Butker has benefited from the high-flying Kansas City offense in his first two pro seasons, ranking fourth with 142 points in 2017 and third with 137 last year. He's also exhibited accuracy, with an 89.9 percent success rate on field goals and 95.9 percent on point-after tries. Because Patrick Mahomes is under center and the skill positions are loaded with talent, Butker shouldn't have a problem upholding his standard in the fall.
