Pros: Power: a conversion of at least 54 yards in each of the last four seasons, including a 61-yarder last year. He improved his field goal accuracy in '09, drilling 26 of 29 attempts, including 6-for-8 from 50-plus yards. Oakland's offense made some positive changes this offseason and should give Sea Bass more to play with.

Cons: He hit 80.0 percent FG success in '08. Before that? 71.9 percent ('07), 72.0 ('06) and 66.7 percent in '05. His track record remains shaky. The Raiders still might have trouble scoring touchdowns; their O is a work in progress. 

Fantasy tip: Janikowski ranks among the top 10 kickers in ADP. Though he remains more valuable in leagues that reward distance boots, it's hard to bank on him after one competent season.
