Wil Lutz A Volatile Streaming Option At Kicker

Denver Broncos kicker Wil Lutz bounced back in the Week 2 loss to the Washington Commanders after missing a field goal and an extra point in a one-point loss in the season opener. In the loss to Washington, Lutz made both of his field goals and all three of his extra-point tries. Through two games, he's tied for 20th among NFL kickers with 13 fantasy points. The 29-year-old benefitted by quarterback Russell Wilson turning back the clock with a 300-yard passing game and three touchdowns last week, but it remains to be seen if that was more of a fluke or a regular occurrence under new head coach Sean Payton this year. Heading on the road to Miami this Sunday to take on the Dolphins, Lutz will be in streaming consideration in deeper fantasy leagues.

Wil Lutz Bounces Back In Week 2 Loss

Denver Broncos kicker Wil Lutz had a rough first game in his new digs in the season opener last week, missing a field goal and an extra point in a one-point loss to the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders. The Broncos lost again in Week 2 to the Washington Commanders by a score of 35-33, but Lutz was more involved and made both of his field-goal tries and all three of his extra-point opportunities for nine points in traditional fantasy scoring. His longest field goal of the day was from 32 yards out. It was a much better showing, and if Denver's offense can stay aggressive and successful down the field like they did against Washington, Lutz could remain in the streaming picture in fantasy.

Wil Lutz - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

Denver Broncos kicker Wil Lutz did not have the debut for the Broncos that he was looking for in the Week 1 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders last Sunday. In a one-point loss to their division rivals, Lutz made one of his two field-goal attempts and missed one of his two extra points. The New Orleans Saints traded Lutz to the Broncos just before the start of the regular season after he made a career-low 74.2 percent of his 31 field-goal attempts in 2022, and the 29-year-old kicker isn't off to a great start with his new team. Lutz's missed field goal last Sunday was from 55 yards out, but he converted a 24-yard attempt in the fourth quarter. Against a tough Washington Commanders defense in Week 2 this Sunday, Lutz will be a low-end streaming option for fantasy managers, at best.

Wil Lutz Misses Field Goal And Extra Point

Denver Broncos kicker Wil Lutz didn't endear himself to the Broncos faithful in his team debut in the Week 1 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday. And in a game in which the Broncos lost by just one point by a score of 17-16, Lutz's missed field goal and missed extra point loomed large in dropping the team to 0-1 to begin the 2023 regular season. Lutz's missed field-goal attempt came from 55 yards out in the third quarter, while his successful attempt was from 24 yards away to put the team up 16-10 in the fourth quarter. The performance will throw the 29-year-old off the fantasy radar as a streamer in Week 2 against the Washington Commanders at home. Denver's offense is going to have to show more for that to change, especially after Lutz made a career-low 74.2% of his kicks in 2022 in his final season with the Saints.

Wil Lutz A Streaming Option In First Game For Denver

Denver Broncos kicker Wil Lutz reunited with head coach Sean Payton last week when the team acquired him from the New Orleans Saints. Lutz missed all of 2021 due to a core-muscle injury and had the worst season of his career in 2022, making a career-low 74.2 percent of his 31 field-goal attempts in the Big Easy. If the Broncos get pre-injury Lutz, he should be at least a weekly streaming option in fantasy, like he'll be in a good matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 1. In his first five seasons in the NFL, the 29-year-old never failed to make at least 87 percent of his field-goal attempts from closer than 50 yards out. In three of his first five years, he made at least 92.6 percent of his tries inside 50 yards. Lutz was kicking in a dome before, but now he'll have the thin air of the Mile High city to work with.

Broncos Acquire Wil Lutz From Saints

The Denver Broncos acquired kicker Wil Lutz from the New Orleans Saints on Tuesday, according to a source. Its unclear what the Broncos are sending in return to the Saints, but the move likely means that they will use Lutz as their starter to open the 2023 regular season over Brett Maher. Back in New Orleans, the trade of Lutz means that undrafted rookie Blake Grupe will open the years as the Saints' starting kicker. The 29-year-old Lutz missed all of the 2021 season due to injury and made just 74.2 percent of his 31 field-goal tries in New Orleans last year. He will reunite with head coach Sean Payton in Denver, but fantasy managers can probably find better options than Lutz for a starting kicker spot in 12-team leagues.
