Janikowski didn't attempt a field goal and converted two of two PATs during the Raiders' 27-14 postseason loss to the Texans on Saturday. Perfectly coinciding with Derek Carr's (broken leg) absence, Janikowski didn't attempt a field goal in any of the Raiders' last three games as the offense simply couldn't move the ball on a consistent basis. Despite this sudden dropoff in usage, Janikowski still finished the 2016 campaign with the 10th-most field goals in the league and could make for an attractive fantasy option on an up-and-coming Oakland squad in 2017.
Janikowski did not attempt a single field goal or extra point in Sunday's loss to the Broncos. Janikowski solidified his status as one of the league's all-time greatest kickers during the 2016 season as he set the record for field goals made of 50-or-more. He was also perfect on extra-point attempts until missing twice in Week 16 against the Colts. His final regular season statistics include 29 of 35 field goals made to go along with 37 of 39 on extra-point attempts in 16 games. The Raiders offense will look to get back on track in the AFC Wild Card round against Houston.
Janikowski didn't attempt a field goal Saturday and converted just three of five PATs. Janikowski had attempted a field goal in all but one game this season and saw at least three attempts in two his previous three contests. On the other hand, one of his extra points was blocked and the other was uncharacteristically pushed wide left. Look for The Polish Cannon to get back on track in the Raider' season finale next week against the Broncos.
Janikowski made four field goals on four attempts to go along with one extra-point conversion during Sunday's win over the Chargers. Janikowski has been on fire throughout the Raiders' past five games, connecting on 13 field goals in as many attempts while remaining perfect on extra-point tries for the season. He'll be another solid fantasy option in Week 16 at home against the Colts, kicking in Oakland's mild winter weather.
Janikowski connected on two field goal attempts in as many tries to go along with one extra point conversion during Thursday's loss to the Chiefs. The chilly weather didn't seem to have much of an effect on Janikowski, but the Raiders' offense struggled to score for what seemed like the first time in forever. They'll look to get back on track next week against the Chargers with a longer period of time to prepare, while Janikowski has missed just one field goal on 13 attempts throughout the team's past five contests.
