Lions' Matt Prater: Flaunts passing ability
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater converted his only field-goal attempt and lone PAT during Sunday's victory over Green Bay. He also completed his only pass attempt for an eight-yard touchdown.

The record holder for the NFL's longest field goal showed his athleticism isn't contained to his kicking abilities, as Prater dropped a perfect touchdown in the back of the end zone to tight end Levine Toilolo on a faked field goal in the second quarter. Also perfect on his kicking opportunities, Prater had quite the day in the Lions' 2018 season finale. He'll now close the season having made 28 of 32 field-goal attempts -- including a perfect 20-for-20 from inside 40 yards -- as well as all 27 of his PATs. Prater remains under contract with Detroit for another two seasons.

Lions' Matt Prater: Perfect against Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater went three-for-three on his field-goal attempts during Sunday's 27-9 loss to Minnesota.

Prater somehow had a serviceable fantasy outing despite the Lions' significant struggles moving the ball against Minnesota's fourth-ranked defense. Having converted multiple field goals in just four of his last nine outings, the strong-legged Prater appears to be a low-floor, high-ceiling fantasy option at this juncture in the season as Detroit approaches it's Week 17 season finale in Green Bay.

Lions' Matt Prater: Misses fourth-quarter field goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater missed his only field goal attempt but made his only PAT during Sunday's 14-13 loss to Buffalo.

Prater made a critical miscue on a missed 48-yard field goal attempt that would've given the Lions the lead in the final frame -- which marked the veteran's first missed field goal in the fourth quarter over the past three seasons. Given the Lions' massive offensive struggles in the absence of Marvin Jones (knee), Kerryon Johnson (knee) and Golden Tate (traded), it isn't wise to bet on Prater getting many opportunities to rebound during Detroit's tough Week 16 matchup against the Vikings.

Lions' Matt Prater: Makes 47-yarder in Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater made his only field-goal attempt and both of his PATs during Sunday's 17-3 victory over Arizona.

The Lions easily won the defensive battle Sunday, but only marginally won the offensive battle while playing in an offense devoid of difference makers outside of receiver Kenny Golladay. In fact, Detroit's pick-six late in the third quarter was the only reason the Lions won by two scores. These struggles only allowed Prater one chance at a field goal, and it could be hard for the offense to afford the kicker more tries in a tougher matchup in Week 15 against the second-ranked Bills defense.

Lions' Matt Prater: Drills trio of field goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater converted all three of his field-goal attempts and his lone PAT during Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Rams.

The Lions' inability to convert in the red zone gave Prater a number of opportunities to rack up points, and the veteran responded with his fourth performance with at least three successful field goals. Now 23-for-26 on FGAs in 2018, Prater will proceed into Week 14 as a quality fantasy option in most formats.
