Player Outlook
Lutz swapped one premium kicking environment indoors in New Orleans for another when he was traded to the Broncos prior to the final cut deadline, reuniting with former coach Sean Payton in Denver. However, Lutz was one of the least effective kickers in 2022, averaging the 32nd-most Fantasy points per game in 2022. He could be a solid option early in the year with the Broncos playing at home the first two weeks, but he's unlikely to have long-term Fantasy value.

Lutz had a bounce-back year in 2023, making 88 percent of his field goals after connecting on 74 percent of his attempts in 2022 with the Saints.
