2020 RTSports Outlook

Butt missed all of last year as he recovered from his third ACL tear. He was eligible to return late in the year but was not reinstated by the Broncos. He should be healthy for the start of this year and will try to earn a roster spot with the team. Butt has eight receptions in three NFL seasons. Butt is a two-way tight end that is a strong player with plus hands. He isn't the best athlete and lacks a little top-end speed but can be a good move-the-chains tight end.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Butt is not worth the risk because of his injury history. If he starts playing and getting consistent work, he might be worth a waiver-wire grab. But until that happens, don't bother. He could get around 15 catches for 150 yards with a score.

RotoBaller's Outlook

Coming into the NFL there was a lot of hype surrounding Jake Butt. However, a leg injury suffered in the Orange Bowl meant his hype would have to take a seat on the back burner for a season. Coming back in 2018 he only played in three games and had just eight receptions for 85 yards.With tight end friendly Joe Flacco now the starting quarterback in town the future should be bright for Butt. But they arent because the Broncos drafted fellow tight endNoah Fant in the first round of the NFL draft.At 66 and 250 pounds Jake Butt is a big man. However, at 64 and 250 pounds Fant not only has the size but he is also an athletic monster with a first-round price tag. That is a price you dont spend on a tight end unless you plan on using them right away, and it means Butt is no better than the TE2 on the offense. This means unless there is an injury to Fant in the preseason, Butt is not even in consideration to be drafted for fantasy purposes. Holding him for another season or two in dynasty will be tough as doing so may not pay out either. Overall, there is really not a league format in which Jake Butt is a worthwhile player to roster. It is a shame to see what has happened since his fall from a probable first or second round pick to the fifth round due to injury. He could have been very good and talked about with the young tight ends such asHunter Henry or O.J. Howard. Unfortunately, with the selection of Noah Fant his time is past, at least until he leaves the Broncos.

Denver Broncos TEs Albert Okwuegbunam, Austin Fort and Jake Butt are expected to be competing for two roster spots during training camp. Okwuegbunam is considered a favorite for one of the spots.

Denver Broncos tight end Jake Butt (knee) said he is back to 100 percent health heading into the 2020 season. Butt was drafted in the fifth round in 2017 out of Michigan, but he's played in just three games (all in 2018) and has had four pretty serious knee surgeries since 2014. As he heads into his age-25 campaign, Butt is desperately trying to prove that he can stay on the field, but it is probably too late. Denver drafted pass-catching tight end Noah Fant in the first round last year and spent more draft capital on rookie Albert Okwuegbunam a month ago. The Broncos also have Jeff Heuerman and Nick Vannett on the roster, so even if Butt manages to stay healthy in 2020, he's highly unlikely to see much playing time.

Denver Broncos TE Jake Butt (knee) said Friday, May 29, he is doing well after missing the entire 2019 campaign following knee surgery and has been working out on his own. He also said he's ready to prove the team right for waiting on him after playing just three games since being drafted in 2017. 'It's not a guarantee - they're not telling me I'm making the team by any stretch or rolling out the red carpet,' Butt said. I still have to go out there and work and earn it. ... But the fact they're standing by me and giving me an opportunity, it obviously means the world to me and I'm going to try and go out there and prove them right and prove myself right.'
