Fantasy Football: 2 New Orleans Saints sleepers for week 11
Wil Lutz, kicker
Kickers can win games.
Kickers can be game-changers when it comes to fantasy football. Have you ever won or lost a game because Justin Tucker kicked three 50-yard field goals, two 30 yard field goals, and made 3 point-after attempts totaling 24 fantasy points? — Well, I have.
Last week against Atlanta, the New Orleans Saints relied on Lutz for all of their points (nine). This week they play Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers give up the most fantasy points out of any NFL team to kickers this season.
Not only will Lutz have a favorable matchup. The weather is forecasting to be zero wind and zero precipitation. Those are the two natural enemies to a kicker. With a favorable matchup and favorable weather, Lutz will have a big day.
Expect Lutz to see three or more field goals with two or three PATs to add on. Estimation of fantasy points: 11.84. Also, can we note the complete incompetence of the offense last week which could carry over and help add value to Lutz.
