Tavecchio made his lone field-goal attempt from 29 yards to go along with six extra-points in as many tries during Sunday's 45-20 win over the Jets.
Tavecchio remained perfect through the first two weeks of his NFL career as he converted on all seven of his overall attempts in Week 2. His total fantasy production took a slight hit with the Raiders finding the end zone six times against a struggling Jets defense, essentially reducing what could have been additional field-goal opportunites for Tavecchio. Oakland is slated to face a tougher test on the road against the Redskins in Week 3, while Tavecchio looks to maintain his recent success.
Tavecchio was 4-for-4 on field goals and made both of his extra-point attempts during Sunday's win over the Titans.
Tavecchio made his NFL debut on Sunday after the Raiders elected to place veteran Sebastian Janikowski (back) on injured reserve earlier in the week. Tavecchio stepped right up as he connected from 52 yards twice, while also cashing from 43 and 20 yards out to go along with a pair of extra points. At this point he appears worthy of consideration in most fantasy formats, especially when taking the Raiders' high-powered offense into account. Tavecchio will look to stay on track in Week 2 against the Jets.
Tavecchio signed with the Raiders on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Sebastian Janikowski (back) was placed on injured reserve in a surprising move, so now Tavecchio will get to make his NFL debut against the Titans on Sunday. The 27-year-old was 3-for-4 on field goals and 5-for-6 on extra points for the Raiders this preseason.
The Raiders signed Tavecchio on Friday, Ron Kroichick of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Long-time kicker Sebastian Janikowski is slow to recover from a back injury and remains questionable in advance of Sunday's game at Tennessee, spurring the Raiders to bring Tavecchio back in to the fold. He hasn't attempted a kick of any kind in an NFL setting during stints with four organizations, but if Janikowski is held out in Week 1, Tavecchio could be the beneficiary of plenty of opportunity from a Raiders offense that ranked seventh in scoring a season ago.
Tavecchio was released by the Raiders on Saturday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Tavecchio was unable to displace veteran Sebastian Janikowski as the starting leg. Given Janikowski's age, however, Tavecchio could be a candidate for the practice squad.
