Lions' Matt Prater projected for second-most field goal attempts in 2018

Detroit Lions kicker Matt Prater is projected to finish the 2018 season with the second-most field goal attempts, per numberFire.com.

What It Means:

Prater finished 12th in both field attempts and makes in 2017, but stands to gain from the Lions' improvements and additions (particularly in the running game) on the offensive side of the ball.

Our models project Prater to connect on 29.7 of his 35.4 field goal attempts in 2018 while adding 40.4 extra points to finish as numberFire's sixth-ranked kicker.
