News: 3 days agoPrater made two of three field-goal attempts and four of four PATs during Sunday's 34-16 victory over the Jaguars.
Spin: Prater missed wide left from 57 yards out but connected from 31 and 41 yards. While the veteran has been somewhat frustrating to own this season due to near goose eggs in Weeks 2 and 4, Prater has the green light to attempt kicks from 50 yards out on a weekly basis and is usually productive when he gets the opportunities. In a Lions offense that is close to fully healthy, Prater could have a big Week 7 against a Falcons defense that has given up the fifth-most points per game (30.7) in 2020.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Prater just continues to get the job done. Five of his past eight seasons have resulted in a top-10 fantasy campaign, including three of the past four. Once adjusted for distance, Prater trails only Justin Tucker in field goal accuracy over the past five seasons. He has been cash money from deep, converting on 47 of 61 attempts from 50-plus yards over the past decade; that 77.0% rate is tops in the league during that span. Prater is entering his age-36 season but remains a solid fantasy starter in a Lions offense that figures to improve with a healthy Matthew Stafford.
