In Week 4, fantasy managers should keep a close eye on Arizona Cardinals kicker Matt Prater as he lines up against the San Francisco 49ers. Prater has been remarkable over the first three weeks of the season, boasting a total of 32 fantasy points. In Weeks one and three, Prater nailed 12 fantasy points against a pair of solid defenses in Washington and Dallas. His powerful kicks combined with a Cardinals' offense that will most likely have trouble moving the ball against a formidable San Francisco defense could result in a solid week for the veteran. As an above-average option at the kicking position, don't be afraid to start him.

Fantasy managers should keep a close eye on Arizona Cardinals kicker Matt Prater as he lines up against the New York Giants in this week's matchup. In Week 1 against the Washington Commanders, Prater nailed a 54-yarder to give his team the lead they later relinquished. In Week 2, the Cardinals face off against the New York Giants, who just gave up two field goal attempts and five extra points against Dallas. His powerful kicks, combined with a Cardinals' offense that may have trouble moving the ball, makes him an above-average fantasy option for Week 2.
