Sebastian Janikowski in a heartbeat.

First you are getting a kicker (the best in the leauge) so why not drop the one you have if you like everyone else on your team. It would be like a free upgrade. Side note, I am not putting much stock in Jani this year anyways.

Thanks, yeah that makes sense. Still baffled why he let Aikers go to keep Justin Medlock... we are panthers fans but still... anywho thanks for the advice, any other thoughts about my current team are welcome. Not lovin it as much as last year but hoping to make some mid season adjustments go get myself to and through the playoffs.

Janikowski is already injured. Swap him out.

Good luck!

If you're picking up a kicker you drop your other kicker. There's no need to ever roster two, ever.
