Brandon McManus A Fine Option vs. Houston

Friday, September 22, 4:38 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars kicker Brandon McManus looks to hit double digits for the second game in a row when the Texans come to town in Week 3. The veteran boot is perfect on the year (4-4 FG, 4-4 PAT) and should have plenty of scoring opportunities in this one, as the Jaguars project to move the ball fairly easily against the Houston D. McManus isn't quite in the top-tier category with the Justin Tuckers', Tyler Bass', and Jake Moodys' of the league, but he slots in behind a number of those elite options. Consider McManus fringe top-10 at the position this week.

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.
