Summary

Kicker Rank: #13All Players: #356
Prater had a monster season last year for the Broncos, making several long-distance kicks while racking up the points because of all the points his team was able to score. He also missed just one field goal all last season. He finished with 150 points and made seven kicks of 50 or more yards. Prater had a season that was as good as any in recent memory. He has at least 133 points two straight seasons. Prater has certainly enjoyed kicking in the thin air of Denver. Prater has a booming leg and continue to improve his accuracy. He is one of the more well-rounded kickers in the NFL.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
As long as Peyton Manning is around, Prater is a top fantasy kicker. He'll get plenty of chances in this offense and has good long-distance potential. He should be able to finish with comparable numbers to last season (around 150 points), making him our top rated fantasy kicker this season.

Denver Broncos PK Matt Prater is being released before he comes off his four-game suspension, according to a source. PK Brandon McManus has won the team's kicking job.
Fantasy Impact: Prater is an All Pro kicker so his off the field issues seem to be enough for the Broncos to turn the page. Prater shouldn't have trouble finding work, though.

Denver Broncos PK Matt Prater likely will not appeal his four-game suspension, because his attorney and the NFL agreed to the length. Prater was initially facing a one-year suspension.
Fantasy Impact: It will be tough to draft Prater with him missing so much time but he'll be a great waiver-wire add once Week 5 rolls around.
