Lions' Matt Prater: Finds more success from long range
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater converted both of his field-goal attempts and both of his PATs during Sunday's 20-19 victory over Carolina.

Prater's day could've been even bigger had a delay of game penalty not forced the Lions to punt after the team initially lined up for a 58-yard field goal attempt. Prater was otherwise perfect from 32- and 54-yards out. Look for the veteran to again be one of the most trusted kickers in the league in Week 12 against the Bears.

Lions' Matt Prater: Converts 50-yarder in Windy City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater converted his only field-goal attempt as well as his only PAT during Sunday's 34-22 loss to the Bears.

The slumping Lions offense fell prey to a vicious Bears defense, and Prater's production once again suffered as a result. However, fantasy owners can at least be thankful that the kicker's one chance at a field goal came from 50 yards out, a distance Prater has now made two of four from this season. Detroit should have an easier time offensively in Week 11 when the Lions host an overrated Panthers defense allowing 25.8 points per game, the 10th-most leaguewide.

Lions' Matt Prater: Drills three field goals in divisional loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater converted all three of his field-goal attempts during Sunday's 24-9 loss to the Vikings.

The Lions offense was even less effective than it was last week against Seattle, especially in the red zone. However, Minnesota's ability to keep Detroit from reaching the painted area ultimately gave Prater a trio of field-goal opportunities, and the veteran rang true on all of his attempts for the sixth time in eight games. While Prater remains one of the most reliable veteran kickers in the game, it might be wise to find another fantasy option in Week 10 when his team travels to the Windy City for an outdoors matchup against a stout Bears defense.

Lions' Matt Prater: Zero field-goal chances against Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater didn't attempt a field goal but nailed both of his PATs during Sunday's 28-14 loss to Seattle.

The Lions shot themselves in the foot multiple times Sunday, blowing multiple chances to score on some occasions and committing crucial turnovers on others. Not only did both Ameer Abdullah and Matthew Stafford lose fumbles that killed two separate drives, but Stafford also threw an interception on the one-yard line near the end of the fourth quarter. It was ultimately a day to forget for Lions fans, and the team will now look to get back on track on the road against an underperforming Vikings unit in Week 9.

Lions' Matt Prater: Nails game-sealing FG from 50 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater converted all four of his field-goal attempts and each of his PATs during Sunday's 32-21 victory over the Dolphins.

Already having converted three field goals of 35 yards or less, Prater -- with the Lions up eight points with barely over two minutes remaining in regulation -- put the game away for good on a gutsy 50-yard boot that showed the level of trust the Detroit coaching staff has in the veteran kicker. Through the first six games of the season, Prater and the Lions now rank third in the league with an elite 2.7 field-goal attempts per outing. Look for him to stay productive in Week 8, when Detroit hosts a Seattle defense that has allowed opposing offenses to score a touchdown on less than 60 percent of possessions in 2018.
