Matt Prater Active Against Packers

Detroit Lions kicker Matt Prater (illness) is active for Week 17 against the Packers. With Detroit's offense playing out the string in a lost season and struggling to put up points with third-string quarterback David Blough at the helm, Prater must be avoided in all fantasy formats for the Week 17 regular season finale. He's made 24 of his 29 field-goal attempts this season, including six of seven from 50-plus yards, but Detroit's ugly offense has afforded him just three field-goal tries in the last three games. You can do much better to close out the year.

Matt Prater Hits Three Field Goals In Week 12

Detroit Lions kicker Matt Prater provided over half of the team's points in their 19-16 loss to the Redskins in Week 12. He converted three of his four field goal attempts, including a 49-yarder, and also converted his only extra-point attempt. Prater has been a solid fantasy kicker all year, hitting 85% of his attempts. The Lions have continued to give him opportunities even with Jeff Driskel filling in for the injured Matthew Stafford (back). Prater remains a viable starting kicker option until further notice.

Matt Prater Elite In Week 1

Detroit Lions kicker Matt Prater went 2-for-2 on field goals, including a 55-yarder, and hit all three of his extra points during Sunday's tie against the Arizona Cardinals. There is no doubt that Prater is one of the best real-life and fantasy producing kickers in the league. Prater can be played in all formats and will be a solid option throughout the 2019 season as long as he stays healthy.
