Chris Boswell Unlikely To Make An Impact In Winter Weather

Saturday, January 13, 1:31 AM

Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Chris Boswell drilled his lone field goal and converted on both of his extra-point tries in a Week 18 victory over the Baltimore Ravens. The veteran will hope to find continued success against the Buffalo Bills in the wild-card round of the NFL playoffs. This is a difficult matchup for Boswell and the Steelers as the Bills have surrendered just 14.8 points per game when playing at Highmark Stadium this season. Furthermore, Sunday's contest is expected to be a slow-paced battle with gusting winds and snow limiting offensive production. Weather conditions in Buffalo could keep Boswell off the field for much of the game, so fantasy managers should consider other options this weekend.

Wil Lutz Hard To Trust In Season Finale

Saturday, January 6, 2:12 PM

Denver Broncos kicker Wil Lutz has had his moments in his first year with the Broncos as a stream-worthy kicker in fantasy lineups, but the Week 18 regular season finale on the road against the Las Vegas Raiders won't be one of them. Lutz has made 88.2 percent of his field goals (30-for-34) this year and has missed two of his 29 extra-point attempts. He also made three of four field-goal opportunities in last week's win over the Los Angeles Chargers in quarterback Jarrett Stidham's first start. The Broncos will face a stiffer defensive matchup in the Raiders this weekend, and Vegas has allowed the second-fewest fantasy points per game (4.8) to opposing kickers in the last five weeks. Fantasy managers shouldn't want to trust a kicker in lineups in a meaningless game in an offense run by Stidham.
