Fantasy Impact

The Saints don’t plan to try out any free agent kickers, which certainly suggests Lutz won’t be out for long. This offseason he restructured his deal saving the Saints $1.74 million in cap space. Last season, the veteran kicker was good on 23 of his 28 kicks. In leagues where kickers are present he remains one of the best to roster.
