It was being reported Friday that Sebastian Janikowski, fantasy football’s second-best kicker, may have to sit Sunday and several weeks thereafter due to a left hamstring injury.

It is not that often that fantasy kickers get any glory as we always tell you to wait until the last or second-to-last pick of your drafts to select the position. But Sebastian Janikowski brings what no other kicker in the league does on a consistent basis - the long ball. If your league awards bonus points for distance kicks, then Janikowski is the man to have. Through six weeks, he already has five 50-plus field goals and 12 field goals altogether.
