Prater converted all five field-goal attempts and his only PAT during Sunday's game against the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Prater tied his career-high for field goals made in a game Sunday, easily logging his most productive day of the season along the way. What's more, Prater again showcased his leg power by notching his second 50-yarder in four weeks. He'll look to stay on fire next week against an average Bears defense allowing the 17th-most points per game in 2016.

Prater converted three of three field-goal attempts and his only PAT on Thursday against the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Prater posted an identical stat line to his Week 9 performance against this same Minnesota team, sending three field goals through the uprights as the Lions again had a tough time reaching the end zone. Since Detroit has been among the league-leaders in field-goal attempts per game through the past four weeks, look for Prater to have another productive day next Sunday against the Saints.

Prater converted two of two field-goal attempts and two of three PATs during Sunday's 26-19 victory over the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

Prater had his first PAT tipped at the line, but was perfect from then on. The 10th-year veteran has now converted at least two kicks in seven of 10 games this season and will look to keep it going next week against a Vikings team he totaled three field goals against in Week 9.

Prater connected on all three of his field-goal attempts as well as his lone PAT during Sunday's 22-16 overtime victory against the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Prater was perfect Sunday, but no kick was more important than the 58-yarder with two seconds remaining that sent the game into overtime. While this was only the first time all season Prater has made three field goals, it's also the fourth time he attempted three field goals -- he simply hasn't been able to connect on every one before. Point being, the opportunities have been there, so if Prater can maintain his accurate ways out of the Lions' Week 10 bye, even more productive fantasy outings should be in store.

Prater converted two of three field-goal attempts as well as his only PAT during Sunday's game against the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Though Detroit was largely stifled by the Texans' tough pass defense, Prater still received three field-goal attempts on the day. However, the veteran leg, for the third time this season, was unable to connect on all three. Rather, he again tied his season-high of two conversions. Up next for Prater and the Lions is a visit to Minnesota for a contest in which points may be hard to come by.

Prater converted two of three field-goal attempts and both of his PATs during the Lions' 20-17 victory over the Redskins on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Prater finally wasn't needed to secure the win this week, as QB Matthew Stafford found receiver Anquan Boldin for an 18-yard go-ahead touchdown with 16 seconds remaining. However, that possession may not have occurred had Prater not missed one of his field-goal attempts. After a three-week stretch of playing at home, Prater will now travel to Houston in Week 8.

Prater converted his only field-goal attempt and each of his four PATs Sunday against the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Prater may not have attempted a single field goal had QB Matthew Stafford been successful in tempting the Rams' defensive front to jump offsides on fourth-and-one with 1:33 remaining in the game. However, the veteran kicker was eventually sent in to give the Lions the lead from 37-yards out and proved trustworthy. Prater hasn't converted more than two field goals this season, though, suggesting he may not have as much upside as a fantasy option compared to other kickers in the league.

Prater converted one 29-yard field goal and all three of his PATs in the Lions' 24-23 win over the Eagles on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

The Lions were efficient in the red zone and Prater's leg simply wasn't needed to account for many points. However, the silver lining here is that Matthew Stafford and the rest of the Detroit passing offense appeared much more effective than they had during the team's recent three-game skid, and it came against a tough Eagles defense. If Stafford can remain on the same page as his receivers moving forward, Prater should have bigger fantasy outings in store this season.

Prater converted two of two field-goal attempts in the Lions' 17-14 loss to the Bears on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Prater could have had a much bigger day had the Lions' offense been able to move the ball effectively throughout the contest, including one particular opportunity that seemed like it would have set Prater up for an additional field-goal attempt until a Golden Tate miscue subsequently resulted in a Matthew Stafford interception. Overall, Prater's success appeared handcuffed to that of Stafford on Sunday, and the rocket-legged kicker may have a hard time tallying points of his own moving forward if his quarterback continues to struggle.

Prater converted his only field goal attempt and went 4-of-5 on extra point attempts in Sunday's 39-35 victory over the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Prater attempted just one field goal Sunday, and it came with four seconds remaining. However, his lack of attempts largely stemmed from his team's efficiency in the red zone. The Lions won't play an injury-depleted defense every week, though, so more formidable opponents may cause a decrease in said efficiency, in which case less touchdowns could lead to more field goal attempts for Prater moving forward.
