2015 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs


After leading the NFL in scoring in 2013, Matt was suspended four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy. This led to him being cut by the Broncos. In his 11 games with Detroit, he made 21 of his 26 field goals while drilling three of five from 50 yards or longer. In his career, Prater has made 81.5 percent of his kicks and 24 of 32 attempts from 50 and beyond. Last year, the Lions scored 35 TDs and 25 FGs on their 181 possessions. Matt has a big leg, and Stafford is going to move the ball. Thus, I expect Prater to be a top-10 kicking option in 2015.

16.10 Scott Atkins - I like taking kickers on good offenses, but ones that choke in the redzone. That's the Lions. (Comments Added Wed Aug 12 2:09:24 p.m. ET 2015)
