Fantasy Impact:

A fifth-round pick out of UCLA, Slater is the son of Hall of Fame OL Jackie Slater, a seven-time Pro Bowler. However, Matthew is a 10-time Pro Bowler, with eight All-Pro nods and three Super Bowl titles. Despite finishing his career with more tackles (191) than scrimmage yards (57) while being listed as a WR, he has a chance to join his father in the Hall as a special teamer.
