The Oakland Raiders will be without their placekicker Sebastian Janikowski this week when they take on their AFC West rival, the Kansas City Chiefs. Janikowski is one of the better fantasy football and real football kickers in the NFL because of his powerful leg. He made three 50+ yard field goals against the Houston Texans two weeks ago.
In Janikowski's place, the Raiders will have kicker Dave Rayner do the kicking. Rayner was signed over the weekend by the Raiders in case Janikowski couldn't go. This will be Rayner's 7th team in five seasons in the NFL. He's played with the Indianapolis Colts, Green Bay Packers, Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego Chargers, Cincinnati Bengals, and now the Oakland Raiders.
