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.

Eddy Pineiro Inactive Versus Buccaneers

Sunday, January 7, 11:42 AM

Carolina Panthers kicker Eddy Pineiro (hamstring) is officially inactive for Week 18 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This news was widely expected after the Panthers listed him as doubtful heading into the weekend. The 28-year-old had appeared in Carolina's previous 16 games this season, converting 86 percent of his field goals. This week, he'll be replaced by Matthew Wright, who remains off the fantasy radar given the Panthers' ongoing offensive struggles.
