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.

Wil Lutz: Staying in New Orleans

Lutz has reached a multi-year agreement to stay with the Saints, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Analysis: Attached to a dome team with an elite offense, Lutz owns career conversion rates of 87 percent on field goals and 97 percent on PATs. He's been a reliable starter for fantasy owners, with the only drawback being the Saints' consistent excellence converting red zone opportunities into touchdowns. While he hasn't shown the same ceiling as a Justin Tucker or Greg Zuerlein, the 24-year-old has a strong argument to be drafted as a top-five kicker in 2019.

Wil Lutz: Nearly perfect in 2018

Lutz made 28-of-30 field-goal attempts and 52 of his 53 extra-point kicks in 16 games in 2018.

Analysis: After a somewhat shaky first two seasons in New Orleans, Lutz was exceptionally accurate in 2018, converting 93 percent of his field goals. While his production lagged near the end of the season as the Saints offense stalled, Lutz still accounted for 136 total points, fourth-most in the league. The third-year pro should remain a reliable playoff option for the Super Bowl-contending Saints and is expected to have plenty of job security entering 2019 backed by one of the league's best offenses.

Factoring in his efficiency and an opportunistic offense, Lutz remains a top option each week.
