Prater had a poor fantasy season for several reasons. He attempted only 28 field goals and hardly made the most of them, converting only 21. That 75% field goal percentage was his worst since 2008, and his accuracy from long-range, usually his calling card, waned significantly, as he went just 10-for-17 from 40 yards or more (though he did set the NFL record for most career field goals of 50-yards or more). He signed a two-year deal with the Cardinals in the offseason and Arizona's fast-paced offense should allow for extra opportunities for Prater. He's not the kicker he once was, but he should see enough volume and have enough juice left in his leg to be a startable option.
