New Orleans Saints kicker Wil Lutz won't have to fight for a job this preseason. The second-year kicker has been nailing kicks with frequency throughout practice, going 8-for-8 on Sunday with a couple of 50+ yard field goals. Lutz was brought over to compete with incumbent kicker Kai Forbath before the 2016 season and wound up winning the job outright. Lutz won't have any real competition this year and may be a desirable fantasy asset, as far as kickers go. After a slow start, he made 28 field goals last season, only missing two in the last 10 games.

Just days after making the final cut and seemingly winning the kicker battle over Connor Barth, the New Orleans Saints dropped Kai Forbath. Instead, dem Saints will be rolling with Wil Lutz. Lutz, an undrafted rookie from venerable Georgia State, spent camp with the Baltimore Ravens before predictably being released. He did enough to impress the New Orleans brass, however, in a brief audition Monday. Forbath shouldn't have been drafted in fantasy leagues anyway, but neither should Lutz. He could very well hold his own, but the Saints haven't had a significant fantasy kicker in years.
