Week 17 Outlook
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Saints kicker Wil Lutz restructured his contract to help save the Saints $1.74 million in cap space.
The Saints continued their spree of cap maneuvers on Wednesday by restructuring veteran kicker Wil Lutz. The move saved the Saints $1.74 million in cap space this season. Last season, the veteran kicker nailed 23 of his 28 kicks.
Wil Lutz made both field goals and both extra point attempts as the Saints' season ended in a playoff loss to the Bucs.
Lutz finished the year striking 82.1% of his field goals, slightly below the league average. He missed an easy chip shot against the Bears early in the season, but all of his other misses came from at least 40 yards out. The longtime Saint still has two years under contract, but his expectations for 2021 should be tempered slightly as Drew Brees is not expected to return.
Wil Lutz missed his only field goal attempt from over 50 yards out but went a perfect 3-for-3 on extra points.
Lutz will have the benefit of playing in the Superdome again next week against the Bucs and makes for an elite kicker option on an explosive Saints offense.
Saints K Wil Lutz was successful on both of his field-goal attempts and on 3-of-4 extra-point tries in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Panthers.
Lutz got back on track following a down week in fantasy. He gets the Bears in the Wild Card round.
Saints K Wil Lutz was successful on his lone field goal attempt and on all seven extra-point tries in Friday's Week 16 win over the Vikings.
One of the better fantasy kickers of the season, Lutz had a solid outing with his double-digit point outcome. It is the day you need from a fantasy kicker to lock up a championship, especially in a close call.
