Sebastian Janikowski K OAK 14 Days
Sebastian Janikowski is now just 15-of-22 on field goals this season.
Janikowski missed two more big ones against the Titans in Week 12 and his 68.2 conversion rate is by far the worst of his career. He's also missed twice from inside 40 yards this season, a spot in which he's made 85-of-86 across the previous five campaigns. "We're not making them, not consistently enough," said coach Dennis Allen. "We have to continue to work to get better there." Janikowski has a big name, but he's not a fantasy option while struggling in an inconsistent Raiders offense.

Sebastian Janikowski missed practice Wednesday due to a rib injury.

Sebastian Janikowski (calf) missed Raiders practice Wednesday.
Janikowski is dealing with a right -- plant leg -- calf issue. Coach Dennis Allen said he'll be ready to kick against the Colts. The Raiders' offense may not even get in position to where they'll need Janikowski on Sunday.

Raiders signed K Sebastian Janikowski to a four-year, $15.2 million extension through 2017.
Because Janikowski was signed through 2013 at $3.8 million, the new deal is essentially worth $19 million over five years, with $8 million in guarantees. Janikowski turned 35 in March, but nailed 31-of-34 field goal attempts last season as the Raiders' premier offensive weapon. He went 31-of-35 the year before. "Sebass" is annually a fantasy factor because the Raiders let him try especially long, 50-plus-yard field goals. The new contract will almost certainly ensure Janikowski finishes his career in Oakland.

Sebastian Janikowski said he wants to finish his career with the Raiders.
Janikowski is entering the final year of four-year, $16 million contract. He's 35 now, but believes he can kick for another 7-8 years. Janikowski set a career-high accuracy mark on field goals last season at 91.2 percent. He was 6-of-9 from 50-plus yards out.

Coach Dennis Allen said Sebastian Janikowski's sore groin was not the reason he passed on a 58-yard field-goal attempt in Week 6.
Allen apparently believes the first half of a 0-0 game is too early to unleash Janikowski's mammoth leg even though the game was in a dome. It's not a great sign for SeaBass' fantasy value. Through five games, he is just 2-of-2 from 50-plus yards after going 7-of-10 from that distance last season.
