A Very Good Fantasy Season for Matt Prater

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Matt Prater had a good fantasy season and was a 'second tier' fantasy star. He was the number #11 ranked K and the #107 ranked player overall. Even though he missed a few games, he played enough to make his overall fantasy rank better than what it is based on average fantasy points where he is the #15 K. His production dropped throughout the season. In his first 5 games he averaged 8.2 FPs and that declined to 7.1 in his final 6 games. A fast start and slow end is somewhat expected given his age. His standard deviation divided by his average is 0.52 which is close to the league ratio. He averaged 7.9 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 16 fantasy points.
