Prater converted two of two field-goal attempts during Saturday's playoff game in Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

After tying for seventh in the league with 31 field goals during the regular season, Prater went without an extra point for just the third time the entire year Saturday. However, he did nail a game-high 53-yard attempt, one of his longest hits of the season. Look for Prater to return in 2017 as one of the top fantasy options at the kicker position.

Prater missed his only field-goal attempt but converted all three PATs during Monday night's 42-21 loss to the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

For the first time all season, Prater went an entire game without making a field goal. Not as if it's any consolation, but his three extra points were his most since Week 6. Expect Prater to get back on track in the Lions' season finale next week against the Packers.

Prater converted two of two field-goal attempts and both extra points Sunday against the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

While Prater was unable to approach last week's five field goal effort, he did rifle in a 54-yard attempt, a boost for leagues that award additional points based on distance. Prater currently sits fourth in the league in field goals and will again be a good option at the kicker position next week against a Giants team that has allowed the most field goals in the league this season.

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.
