Lutz had core muscle surgery in August and is likely to miss several weeks of the season. Although he may regain his job upon his return, he had his worst season as a professional last year, setting career-lows in field goal percentage (82.1%), attempts (28), and conversions (23). The New Orleans offense was simply far less explosive with a declining (and injured) Drew Brees, and Lutz couldn't make up for his lack of efficiency with increased volume. Given Lutz's injury and the now less-desirable New Orleans offense, there's no reason to consider him in fantasy leagues.
