New Orleans Saints
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Lutz is No. 4 in career FG percentage (87.5) and also attached to a prolific offense. Even a Drew Brees injury in 2019 wasn't enough to prevent Lutz from finishing top 8 among kickers for a fourth time in as many seasons. The 26-year-old benefits from a plethora of dome games, but he's also been impressive outdoors, converting 85.7 percent of field goals and 95.9 percent of PATs. Read Past Outlooks

Rare miss in wild-card loss
KNew Orleans Saints
January 5, 2020
Lutz made two of three field-goal attempts and converted both of his extra-point attempts in the Saints' 26-20 overtime loss to the Vikings on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Lutz finished the game with a rare miss, pushing the ball wide right on a 43-yard attempt at the end of the first half that would have tied the game at 13. Entering this game, he had made 16 field goals in a row, and Lutz will head into next season as one of the league's most accurate kickers.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
2017
Lutz finished seventh or higher in kicker fantasy scoring each of his three NFL seasons, with impressive accuracy and a wealth of PAT opportunities making up for Drew Brees' consistent success turning red-zone possessions into touchdowns. The young kicker is unlikely to challenge for the league lead in field goals as long as Brees is still playing, but there's a lot to be said for the security of this setup.
Lutz was tied for fifth among kickers in fantasy scoring in 2016 and found his way into the top 10 (seventh) again in 2017. His conversion rates suggest he's only a league-average kicker or perhaps a bit better, but that's more than enough to get the job done when playing for a dome team that has Drew Brees, Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas lining up behind a solid offensive line. There's minimal risk involved.
Lutz had a successful rookie season last year, finishing with the fifth most points thanks in part to his 98.0 percent accuracy on 50 PAT attempts -- he was one of only two kickers with that many. Those tries helped make up for his 34 field-goal attempts, which tied for 11th, while his accuracy was only 23rd. Part of his accuracy issues were from deep, as four of his six misses came from at least 50 yards. Given the Saints' offensive upside, Lutz likely will get enough attempts to make him a strong fantasy option, particularly when he's playing at home.
