Matt Prater 2016 Week 2 Kicker Rankings Article

2016 NFL Player Ranking


Who to Start at Kicker in your Week 2 Fantasy Line-up


There is no player on a team who can become a goat to a hero quicker than our favorite Kicker.   Lets take Detroit Lions Kicker Matt Prater as this weeks example of hero.   After missing a critical extra point to extend the Lions lead to 7 points and looking like the teams Goat when the Colts offense drove down the field and scored a touchdown with the go ahead extra point leaving 30+ seconds on the Clock.  Matt Stafford and team responded by driving the ball down the field quickly setting up a 43 yard FG with seconds remaining.  Colts had one time out remaining but passed on playing the mind game of using it as Prater lined up to kick what would be the game winning field goal.   He instantly transitioned from Goat to Hero as soon as that ball passed directly between the goal posts.

Amazingly these guys have a short term memory allowing them to quickly put the failure behind them and stay confident in their finely honed skill.  Here we provide our week 2 rankings and this week there were a couple of changes of significance.  Two gents Dan Bailey and Matt Bryant jumped into the top 5 positions balance of stars slid slightly down with the rise of them.   Typically we don’t see much movement within these ranking especially once we get it established no time to panic but certainly if Bryant or Bailey are available grab them up.
