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 it's a "comforting feeling" for him to know he can count on three points anytime the offense gets across the 50-yard line.

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.

Raiders K Sebastian Janikowski (groin) was limited in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

The Raiders are trying to be deceptive on the injury report ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Steelers, listing eight guys as "limited/questionable." Janikowski suffered the injury in Oakland's third preseason game and has been fine the first two weeks of the season. Trot him out as your fantasy kicker.

Sebastian Janikowski (groin) will kick in Monday's game against the Chargers.

Janikowski tweaked his groin while trying to make a tackle during the third preseason game. He's fully recovered from that and will be ready to go in the opener. Janikowski's powerful leg and the Raiders' propensity to get in shootouts make him a strong fantasy kicking option.

Sebastian Janikowski agreed to court-ordered anger management and substance abuse classes in connection with multiple misdemeanor charges from a 2010 nightclub incident.

Janikowski was originally charged with misdemeanor battery and false imprisonment after grabbing and shoving a woman. The court ordered him to stay away from the woman, but he won't face jail time. Janikowski should escape NFL discipline for the incident.

Coming off his six-field goal day, Sebastian Janikowski (hamstring) was held out of practice Wednesday.

Remarkably, Janikowski banged four field goals from 40 yards out or more even though his hamstring still isn't 100 percent. He's now 8-of-9 from 40-plus on the season and 5-of-6 from 50-plus. Sea Bass should be in fantasy lineups for Sunday's game at Miami.
