Scouting report

NO K Wil Lutz - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Will Lutz was one of the most reliable kickers in the league in 2018. He made over 93% of his kicks, missing only two field goals and just one extra point last season. He also continues to enjoy being a part of one of the top offenses in the league that is always a threat to either score six or put Lutz in position to give them three points.

Fantasy Downside
Lutz has a history of missing long field goals. Six of his 13 career misses have been from at least 50 yards, though he was 2 for 3 from that distance in 2018. If you have penalties for misses, it wouldn't hurt to see the Saints be deeper in opponents' territory when bringing out the field goal unit. Other than that, not much to not like about Lutz.

Bottom Line
Lutz was tied for third in fantasy scoring among kickers in 2018 and has Drew Brees as his quarterback. Lutz is one of the few kickers that you don't have to worry about streaming. He's a top option at the position. You just need to worry about finding a kicker in Week 9, when the Saints have their bye week.
