Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

Cardinals K Matt Prater (hip, illness) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. That puts him in line to return for Monday night's game vs. the 49ers, although Prater is a weak fantasy play with Arizona sporting a 17.75-point implied total.

2:42pm EST 11/13/22

Cardinals K Matt Prater (illness, hip) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Rams. Tristan Vizcaino will kick for Arizona but isn’t a great fantasy option.

The Cardinals on Saturday signed K Tristan Vizcaino, and he’s now expected to kick Sunday against the Rams in place of Matt Prater. The incumbent is officially questionable, listed with a hip injury and illness

Cardinals K Matt Prater missed Friday’s practice with an illness and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Rams. He’s also still on the injury report with the hip injury that cost him 3 games earlier this season. We’d look elsewhere for a Week 10 fantasy kicker.

11:37am EDT 10/30/22

Cardinals K Matt Prater (hip) is active for today’s game vs. the Vikings. He’s been out since Week 4 but steps back in as Arizona’s kicker for this one.

Cardinals K Matt Prater (hip) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Vikings. We’ll see if he can make it back for that one after missing the past 3 weeks, but we’d look elsewhere for Week 8 fantasy lineups.

7:22pm EDT 10/20/22

Cardinals K Matt Prater (hip) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Saints. Rodrigo Blankenship will kick for Arizona.

Cardinals K Matt Prater (hip) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Saints. He didn't practice all week, so we're not expecting him to play. Assuming that's the case, K Rodrigo Blankenship will be called up from the practice squad and kick against New Orleans.

The Cardinals released K Matt Ammendola and signed K Rodrigo Blankenship to the practice squad. Blankenship will kick vs. the Saints on Thursday night if K Matt Prater (hip) isn't ready.

Cardinals K Matt Prater is out for Sunday's game vs. the Seahawks, HC Kliff Kingsbury said Thursday. Matt Ammendola will kick again for Arizona this weekend.

Cardinals K Matt Prater (hip) remained sidelined on Wednesday. It looks like Matt Ammendola will kick again for Arizona vs. Seattle this weekend.

Cardinals K Matt Prater (hip) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Eagles, HC Kliff Kingsbury said. K Matt Ammendola, who kicked for the Chiefs in Weeks 2 and 3, will step in for Prater. We'd look elsewhere for your fantasy lineups.

Cardinals K Matt Prater (hip) did not practice on Wednesday. He kicked through this issue last week, making 2 FGs and 2 XPs. But we'd look elsewhere for a Week 5 fantasy kicker.

2:38pm EDT 10/2/22

Cardinals K Matt Prater (hip) is active for today’s game vs. the Panthers. He carries elevated risk in fantasy lineups at less than 100%.

Cardinals K Matt Prater (hip) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Panthers. We'll see if Arizona makes a move to replace Prater, but you should look for healthier options for fantasy lineups.

Former Lions K Matt Prater is joining the Cardinals on a 2-year deal. It’s an upside landing spot for the reliable fantasy kicker. Arizona ranked 6th in yards and 13th in scoring last year, the 2nd season for HC Kliff Kingsbury

Lions K Matt Prater (back) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Bucs. He only got in 1 limited practice this week. We'd look for a healthier option for Week 16 fantasy lineups.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports that former Broncos K Matt Prater is expected to sign with the Lions after trying out for the team Tuesday.  Denver cut Prater after he returned from a season-opening suspension.  But there was certainly nothing wrong with his kicking last year, when Prater hit 25 of 26 FG attempts.  Detroit opened this season with Nate Freese and then Alex Henery, who combined to go 0 for 6 in the 40-49 yard range over the 1st 5 games.  It's a good situation for Prater's fantasy value: a solid offense and an indoor home field.

The Broncos are releasing K Matt Prater, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.  Prater was set to come off his 4-game suspension next week.  K Brandon McManus has been solid in his place, though, connecting on all 3 of his FGs and 8 XPs.  And Denver saves some money by going with the youngster.  McManus will be a solid fantasy option the rest of the way.  Prater could get signed by another team (Kansas City?) this year.

The Broncos have traded a 7th-round pick to the Giants in exchange for K Brandon McManus.  Denver needs a kicker for the first 4 games with Matt Prater suspended.  It looks like McManus is their guy.  The rookie nailed his only 2 preseason FG attempts, 46-and 47-yarders, and has a booming leg.  He drilled a 75-yarder in practice, according to the New York Times' Bill Pennington.  McManus will be an intriguing fantasy spot starter kicker for Denver's high-powered offense.  The Giants, meanwhile are sticking with K Josh Brown.
