Lions' Matt Prater: Finishes year with 102 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matt Prater went 22 for 24 on field goals and 36 for 39 on extra points during the 2015 season.

Prater also kicked the second longest field goal in the league this season, a 59-yarder in Week 17. Prater's field goal percentage tied New England's Stephen Gostkowski for fifth in the league, but that may speak more to his value in actual football as opposed to fantasy football. No other kicker in the top 10 in accuracy attempted fewer kicks than Prater, who made the 23rd most field goals in the league overall. Prater is known for having a mighty pendulum for a right leg, but he's probably not worth a pickup to start the 2016 season. Nine kickers kicked at least 30 field goals this season, a figure Prater has only reached once in his career, back in 2009 with Denver.

Lions' Matt Prater: Expected to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matt Prater (illness) is expected to play Thursday against the Packers, Albert Breer of NFL Network reports.

Prater signaled that a return was possible with a limited practice session Wednesday, and considering the Detroit Lions haven't inked another kicker to the 53-man roster, he seems poised to fulfill his typical game-day duties. After being presented with just three field goals over the first five contests, he's knocked through all 11 chances in the past six outings.

Lions' Matt Prater: Questionable for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matt Prater (illness) is listed as questionable for Thursday's contest versus the Packers, Tim Twentyman of the Detroit Lions ' official site reports.

Barring the addition of a kicker before the contest, Prater should be past the illness that held him out of practice this week. On the season, he's nailed all 14 field goals, including three from 40-to-49 yards and two from 50-plus in the past three games.

Lions' Matt Prater: Sits out practice again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Prater (illness) did not practice Tuesday for the second straight day, Kyle Meinke of MLive Media Group reports.

Prater remains sidelined by his illness, but the Lions have not provided any clues that he is in danger of missing Thursday's game against the Packers. Expect Prater to be good to go Thursday unless the Lions add a kicker to the roster at some point over the next couple days.
