The Facts: Butker was named AFC special teams player of the month for December, after hitting 15-of-18 field goals in the final five games.
Diehards Line: Signed as an injury replacement for Cairo Santos, Butker has had an impressive rookie year. In just 13 games, he’s hit 38-of-42 field goals and tied for fourth in the league in scoring. He was initially a seventh-round pick of the Panthers, who kept him to start the year despite using veteran Graham Gano. When they cut Butker a week into the season, the Chiefs were happy to bring him in.
