Lions | Matt Prater has four field goals

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 14:55:11 -0800

Detroit Lions PK Matt Prater kicked four field goals Sunday, Dec. 4, in a 28-13 win over the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Prater remains a safe bet for fantasy owners, who have come to see Prater rarely miss a field goal or extra point. In this day and age of kickers missing PATs, this is a good sign. If you need a strong kicker to close out your season or go to the playoffs, pick up Prater if he is available.

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 16:14:11 -0800

Detroit Lions PK Matt Prater (illness) is active Thursday, Dec. 3, against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Prater was fighting a cold all week, but he's good to go. He's not the most reliable kicker, but he's worth starting in seasonal leagues tonight.

Lions | Matt Prater likely to play

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 14:22:41 -0800

Detroit Lions PK Matt Prater (illness) is likely to play in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers Thursday, Dec. 3, considering the Packers haven't signed another kicker this week. Prater was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 2, and is questionable for the game Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Prater has made all 14 of his field goal attempts this year but is just 22-for-25 on extra points. As Detroit's offense has struggled this year, Prater hasn't been a very good fantasy booter as a result. Now battling an illness, he's not a recommended play.

Lions | Matt Prater has mixed results

Sun, 15 Nov 2015 14:52:20 -0800

Detroit Lions PK Matt Prater missed two extra points yet hit for two field goals from 49 and 51 yards in an 18-16 win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Nov. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Kickers have no value in FantasyScore, but you likely have them in other leagues, and Prater has been a mixed bag as the Lions move forward in the post-Jason Hanson era. Unless Prater falls apart he won't be cut by the team, and the fact he has drained all 10 of his field goals is a great sign.

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 09:06:24 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Prater got stronger as the season went on in 2014 after missing three field goals early in the season. Over the course of a full season, Prater could be a nice addition to your roster in 2015.

Lions | DET met with Matt Prater's agent

Fri, 20 Feb 2015 23:49:10 -0800

Free-agent PK Matt Prater (Lions) had his agent meet with general manager Martin Mayhew at the NFL Scouting Combine Friday, Feb. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Prater has already said he wants to re-sign with the Lions, and the team believes he could have Pro Bowl versatility. After a rough start Prater racked up 84 points in 11 games and missed only five field goals. Three of those came in the early weeks, meaning Prater got better as he went along. Prater could be a solid pickup given a full 16-game schedule.
