FF Today's Take:The Lions released Alex Henery yesterday after he missed three field goals in a loss to the Bills. Prater was released by the Broncos last week after he served a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. He's certainly a viable K1 option for your fantasy team.
Broncos to release K Matt Prater-- Fri Oct 3 12:45 pm --
FF Today's Take:For those holding Prater during his four-game suspension you can safely release him. The Broncos will move forward with McManus who currently ranks 29th among kickers with 5.7 fantasy points per game. It's likely Prater could land with a new team in the coming weeks.

FF Today's Take:The suspension is said to be alcohol related. Prater was put into the league's substance abuse program after being arrested on a DUI charge back in 2011. Look for the Broncos to sign vetern kicker prior to Week 1.
