Oakland Raiders PK Giorgio Tavecchio is competing with PK Sebastian Janikowski for the kicker job during training camp, according to special teams coach Brad Seely. Seely said Janikowski is the frontrunner because of his experience.
Fantasy Tip: Janikowski likely will win the job during the preseason and will be kicking for a team that has a high-powered offense. Janikowski may be worth a late-round pick in deeper leagues.

Free-agent PKs Nick Novak (Chargers), Kai Forbath (Redskins), Chris Boswell (Giants), Connor Barth (Buccaneers) and Giorgio Tavecchio (Raiders) are auditioning for the Houston Texans Tuesday, Sept. 29, according to sources. Texans PK Randy Bullock missed a 43-yard field goal and an extra point during the Week 3 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Fantasy Tip: Bullock is clearly on the hot seat, but the tryout may also just be a means of motivating the incumbent, too. Seasonal players will want to take a wait-and-see approach and stay the course until there is an official announcement. The Texans are averaging two field goal attempts per game through the first three weeks of the season, and the Houston defense projects favorably most weeks, so the job has value, especially in the right matchups.
