The Raiders have signed K Sebastian Janikowski to a 4-year extension.  This obviously isn't huge news for fantasy owners, because Janikowski already held the undisputed starting role.  (And, of course, there's the fact that he's a kicker.)  But it shows the franchise's continuing commitment to 1 of the biggest legs in NFL history.  Here's hoping the Raiders can develop an offense to match before he retires.

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.
