Lions' Matt Prater: Nails game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater converted his only field goal attempt and went 4-of-5 on extra point attempts in Sunday's 39-35 victory over the Colts.

Prater attempted just one field goal Sunday, and it came with four seconds remaining. However, his lack of attempts largely stemmed from his team's efficiency in the red zone. The Lions won't play an injury-depleted defense every week, though, so more formidable opponents may cause a decrease in said efficiency, in which case less touchdowns could lead to more field goal attempts for Prater moving forward.

Lions' Matt Prater: Snipes 60-yarder in preseason loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater converted 2-of-3 field goal attempts Saturday during the Lions' preseason loss to the Ravens.

Prater's lone blemish was a 53-yard attempt that pegged the right upright, but he otherwise converted a 28-yarder as well as a 60-yarder as time expired in the first half. Though facing heat from undrafted rookie Devon Bell, who converted one of his two attempts on Saturday, Prater has displayed significantly superior leg strength and appears poised to handle Detroit's kicking duties yet again during the 2016 campaign.

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.
