Lions' Matt Prater: Unchallenged for kicker job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater is set for another season as the Lions' placekicker, MLive.com's Nate Atkins reports.

Prater is entering the first season of the three-year extension he signed in October, and the Lions haven't even bothered bringing in a camp leg. He's coming off three straight seasons converting better than 85 percent of his field-goal attempts, including 19 of 24 from 50 yards or longer during that stretch. In addition to his solid track record of accuracy, Prater benefits from playing for a dome team with an above-average offense. While not quite among the elite at his position, he's a solid choice in the closing stages of a draft.

Lions' Matt Prater: Flawless in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater converted both of his field-goal attempts and all three PATs during Sunday's 35-11 victory over Green Bay.

Prater was flawless Sunday while capping off another strong season in Motown. He now finishes the campaign having connected on 30 of 35 field-goal attempts and 40 of his 41 PATs. Four of his five field-goal miscues came on attempts from beyond 50 yards, while his seven makes from that range were second-most in the league. Under contract with the Lions for another three years thanks to the extension he signed mid-season, Prater will return in 2018 as a fantasy-worthy option at the kicker position once again.

Lions' Matt Prater: Scores five points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater made a 23-yard field goal and missed from 50 yards in Sunday's 26-17 loss to the Bengals, when he also made both his extra points.

Prater has now missed just five of his 33 field-goal attempts this season. With one game remaining, his 121 points are tied for tenth league-wide.

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

Prater converted both of his field-goal attempts and both PATs during Sunday's 20-10 victory over the Bears.

Prater's two field goals put his team on top early and it was a lead the Lions wouldn't relinquish before the final whistle. The Central Florida product hasn't missed a single attempt from any range since his uncharacteristically poor performance against the Ravens in Week 13 and remains an upper-tier fantasy kicker for Detroit's Week 16 matchup with Cincinnati.

Lions' Matt Prater: Hits 46-yarder in Tampa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater converted his only field-goal attempt and all three of his PATs during Sunday's 24-21 victory over the Buccaneers.

There's a chance Prater could've seen an extra field-goal attempt or two, but quarterback Matthew Stafford tossed two interceptions in Tampa Bay territory during the second quarter. Regardless, Prater did all he could to bounce back from an uncharacteristically inaccurate outing last week in Baltimore. He'll now square off against the Bears in Week 15, a team Prater has converted exactly two field goals against in three meetings dating back to the start of the 2016 season.
