Matt Prater's Fantasy Scouting Report

2018 FANTASY RECAP AND 2019 FANTASY PROJECTION

Matt Prater had a good, but not elite, year in fantasy. 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. He peaked early in the season. He averaged 8.2 FPs in his first 5 games and 7.1 FP 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. Our projected ceiling for Prater when he 'goes off' is 16 fantasy points (his average is 7.9FPs). Matt Prater (2019 Season Projection: 26-31 FGs, 3.6 FG50, 0 XPs) is projected to deliver comparable fantasy value in 2019 where his projection based rank has him as the #10 player at his position.
