Matt Prater | Denver Broncos | K
2013 Experience: 7th season
Fantasy Football Outlook: Unlike Mason Crosby and Garrett Hartley, veteran Matt Prater proved he could still pickup a reasonable amount of field goal opportunities, on a team with a high octane offense. One area of Prater’s game fantasy owners have to love is his accuracy from over 50 yards as he’s converted over the years.
A reliable veteran kicker with the thin air out in Denver, we should expect Coach John Fox to call Prater’s number on long field goals, once again this season. Look to Prater as a respectable low-end starter for your fantasy team.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections
Matt Prater has turned into one of the better kickers in the game over the past two seasons, but a groin injury ended his season early in 2010. With all the projected turnover in Denver this off-season, and Prater’s health concerns, it’s hard to make of what his numbers will look like this season. Prater is worthy in talent of a starting kicker in ten team leagues but because of the team and health concerns you should look to other options to start the season.

Matt Prater has a solid kicking leg and is sure helps that he plays in the mile high thin air. As long as the Broncos continue to play good defense, Prater is worth having on fantasy rosters.
2010 Fantasy Football Outlook
2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Matt Prater put together his second solid fantasy season in 2009. This was a good sign as it just about solidifies that Prater can be a viable option for his team when called upon in future years.
2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: Unfortunately, for Prater the Broncos parted ways with offensive weapons Brandon Marshall and Tony Scheffler this offseason. Even worse the team is in a state of flux with their quarterback situation.
With so many questions on offense, Prater’s fantasy value will suffer as we head into draft this summer. Look for Prater to be a solid option when the team faces teams, they can move the football against. Other than that you will want to have another option when they face good all around teams.
– Good Area For Kicking
– Good Schedule
– Decent Overall Skill
