Sebastian Janikowski is questionable. We break down the fantasy implications.

Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski (groin) was limited all week and is questionable to play against the Steelers.

Analysis: Here's your weekly kicker analysis: Seabass is fully expected to play, but the late start for the Raiders does make fantasy owners uneasy in some aspects. There's really only one way to handle it: Owners should expect him to play and trot him out there as long as there are other kickers on the wire for the later starts. If he does sit, owners should just cut him and pick up one of those kickers. An inactive kicker just doesn't have enough value to warrant owning two.
