questionable, expected to play | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Raiders K Sebastian Janikowski (hamstring) was unable to practice on Wednesday and is listed as questionable for tonight's game against the Chargers.  The team hasn't signed another K, so it looks like SeaBass will give it a go.  But he's clearly not at 100% though.  You're better off using a safer option in your fantasy lineup this week.

The Seahawks released K Jason Myers. It means they'll go into the regular season with former Raider Sebastian Janikowski as their guy. It's no surprise, as the team guaranteed him $600K. The 40-year-old is more of a wait-and-see fantasy option.

The Seahawks on Friday reached a 1-year deal with K Sebastian Janikowski. The former Raiders kicker missed last season but finished 12th among fantasy kickers in 2016. Seattle got a disappointing 72.4% conversion rate on FGs last year from K Blair Walsh. Steven Hauschka finished top 12 among fantasy kickers each of the previous 5 seasons as a Seahawk.

The Raiders have placed K Sebastian Janikowski (back) on IR. They could bring him back as their "designated-to-return" player, but there's no reason to roster him in fantasy right now. K Giorgio Tavecchio was promoted from the practice squad and will kick for Oakland against the Titans tomorrow.

Raiders K Sebastian Janikowski (back) was limited in practice all week and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. We'll see if Oakland adds a K to the roster on Saturday, but there's no reason to mess with this situation in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Raiders K Sebastian Janikowski is dealing with a back injury. He missed the final 2 preseason games and looked "awful" in practice on Monday, a source told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Oakland is reportedly considering cutting Janikowski and worked out 3 Ks on Monday (Mike Nugent, Josh Lambo and Marshall Koehn). We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation, but Janikowski should be avoided in drafts and Week 1 fantasy lineups.
