2018 Fantasy Outlook
Lutz was tied for fifth among kickers in fantasy scoring in 2016 and found his way into the top 10 (seventh) again in 2017. His conversion rates suggest he's only a league-average kicker or perhaps a bit better, but that's more than enough to get the job done when playing for a dome team that has Drew Brees, Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas lining up behind a solid offensive line. There's minimal risk involved. Read Past Outlooks

Lutz reached a multi-year agreement Wednesday on a new deal 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 in 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.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Lutz had a successful rookie season last year, finishing with the fifth most points thanks in part to his 98.0 percent accuracy on 50 PAT attempts -- he was one of only two kickers with that many. Those tries helped make up for his 34 field-goal attempts, which tied for 11th, while his accuracy was only 23rd. Part of his accuracy issues were from deep, as four of his six misses came from at least 50 yards. Given the Saints' offensive upside, Lutz likely will get enough attempts to make him a strong fantasy option, particularly when he's playing at home.
