Lions' Matt Prater: Perfect in losing effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater converted all four of his field-goal attempts and both of his PATs during Sunday's 30-26 loss to the Falcons.

Prater couldn't do any wrong Sunday and further bolstered his case for being one of the best kickers in the game. He's now perfect on attempts from any range through three weeks -- and only one of his six field-goal attempts have come from within 40 yards, while three have come from beyond 50. However, playing against the Vikings on the road in Week 4 could give the Lions offense some trouble moving the ball, which slightly curbs Prater's fantasy appeal this time around.

Lions' Matt Prater: Connects from 56 yards on MNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater converted his only field goal attempt and lone PAT during Monday's 24-10 victory over the Giants.

Prater had an angel on his side Monday, as his lone field goal bounced off the horizontal pipe and luckily found its way through the uprights. While that only made for Prater's second field-goal try in as many games, both of his attempts have been successful and, notably, from 56 yards out or longer. Next week's matchup with the Falcons should be a higher-scoring affair and, assuming that proves true, could lead to more chances for Prater to show off his reputably strong leg.

Lions' Matt Prater: Quiet in third preseason tilt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater didn't attempt a field goal but converted all four of his PATs during Friday's preseason game against the Patriots.

The last time Prater went an entire game without attempting a field goal was Week 14 of the 2015 season, so the kicker's minimal usage Friday isn't a great example of what to expect from him this year (he attempted at least two field goals in 12 of 16 games in 2016). Last week's exhibition against the Jets is probably a better indicator, as the Lions offense got off to a much better start and Prater ultimately ended the day with three fields -- including one from 50 yards.

Lions' Matt Prater: Shines in mock game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater drilled field goals of 55 and 56 yards during the first half of Friday's mock scrimmage, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Prater also made a 43-yarder, but missed a rushed 55-yard attempt the coaches threw in at the very end of the first half. Despite the miscue, Prater was very impressive all things considered and already appears to be in midseason form. The veteran kicker was a perfect seven-for-seven from beyond 50 yards last season -- only Baltimore's Justin Tucker converted more from that range -- and is firmly entering the 2017 campaign as a fantasy-worthy option at kicker.

Lions' Matt Prater: Kicks two field goals in playoff defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Prater converted two of two field goal attempts during Saturday's playoff game in Seattle.

After tying for seventh in the league with 31 field goals during the regular season, Prater went without an extra point for just the third time the entire season. However, he did nail a game-high 53-yard attempt, one of his longest hits of the season. Look for Prater to return in 2017 as one of the top fantasy options at the kicker position.
