Lions' Matt Prater: Flawless against Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater converted his only field-goal attempt and all five PATs during Sunday's 38-24 victory over the Browns.

The Lions were effective both running and passing the ball Sunday, which led to increased success in the red zone. Prater thus wasn't called on much, but still salvaged his fantasy output with a flawless performance on his PATs -- an area in which Prater hasn't missed this season. The Central Florida product is now averaging 2.4 field-goal attempts and 2.6 PATs per game entering a Week 11 matchup against the Bears.

Lions' Matt Prater: Remains productive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater converted three of four field-goal attempts and all three PATs during Monday's 30-17 victory over the Packers.

Prater missed his third field goal of the season Monday on a 55-yard attempt that hit the crossbar. Other than that miscue, Prater rang true on his other attempts and remains perfect from within 49 yards. Especially given the Lions' tremendous startling offensive struggles in the red zone, Prater should remain busy in Week 10 when the Lions host a Browns team that's surrendered 25.3 points per game in 2017, which ranks fifth-last in the league.

Lions' Matt Prater: Earning pay raise
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater converted all five of his field-goal attempts during Sunday's 20-15 loss to the Steelers.

Fresh off signing a three-year, $11.4 million extension earlier in the week, Prater was the Lions' only source of scoring on a night his team had significant struggles in the red zone. His day could have been even more productive, too, if not for coach Jim Caldwell's questionable decision to go for it on fourth-and-goal at a crucial juncture in the second half. As one of only two kickers on the season to have attempted seven field goals from 50 yards or longer, Prater will proceed into a Week 9 matchup with the Packers as one of the higher-upside legs in the land.

Lions' Matt Prater: Agrees to three-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions signed Prater to a three-year, $11.4 million contract extension Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Prater's new deal will keep him in the Detroit through the 2020 season and is worth up to $12.15 million in incentives. The Lions will now have both of their specialists in the fold for the next few seasons after the team previously signed punter Sam Martin to a four-year contract extension last September. Since joining the Lions in 2014, Prater has been one of the top kickers in the league, converting 84 of 98 (85.7 percent) field-goal attempts, including an impressive 19-for-24 (79.1 percent) mark from 50-plus yards. The 33-year-old is enjoying another banner campaign so far in 2017, knocking down all 15 of his extra-point tries while drilling 10 of 12 field goals, with his only misses coming from 56 and 59 yards.

Lions' Matt Prater: Connects from 41 yards in Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater converted one of two field-goal attempts and all five PATs during Sunday's 52-38 loss to the Saints.

Prater remained flawless in the PAT column Sunday and could have had a bigger day had he connected on a 56-yard field-goal attempt in the third quarter. While the Central Florida product has now misfired twice in the past three weeks, both misses came from at least 55 yards out, making it hard to dock Prater too much -- if at all. In fact, it's better that he attempted those kicks and missed than having not attempted them at all, as those plays showcased the Lions' high level of trust in their veteran leg. Detroit now has a bye in Week 7 with a tough matchup against the Steelers on deck.
