Prater has attempted only two field goals this season, but has converted them both - from 58 and 56 yards out, respectively. He's also made all five of his extra point attempts. Playing for a solid but not explosive offense, and with one of the strongest legs in the NFL, Prater is a sure-fire start this week at home against the Falcons.

Matt Prater remains automatic from long range

Matt Prater nailed not one but two field goals from 55-plus yards on Sunday. He also booted through a 35-yard attempt to go a perfect 3-for-3 on the day. He converted both of his extra points to top off a big fantasy day during the Lions' 30-26 Week 3 loss to the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Prater has already made four field goals from 55-plus yards this season and is a perfect 6-of-6 on field goal attempts and 7-of-7 on extra points. He is one of the top kickers in fantasy especially in leagues that award distance bonuses. Prater will kick in another dome in Week 4 when the Lions travel to Minnesota to face the Vikings. Start him if you have him.
