1. Sebastian Janikowski, Raiders (at Dolphins)
All the Oakland Raiders have to do is get the rock around the Miami Dolphins' territory. This at least gives the Raiders a three-point lock, because Oakland's offense remains horrendous inside the red zone.
2. Connor Barth, Buccaneers (at Giants)
Last week, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers moved the ball impressively well and at a consistent rate. The New York Giants are also vulnerable to Tampa Bay's balanced attack, but Big Blue has the ability to lock down when backed up. So Connor Barth kicks the Bucs to the scoreboard once again.
3. David Akers, 49ers (vs. Lions)
The man proved he could knock from 63 yards out. Well, that only enhances the 49ers' scoring effectiveness, because the Detroit Lions still lack on defense. In turn, San Francisco will be in position to add points throughout, and David Akers remains a busy kicker this week.
4. Greg Zuerlein, Rams (vs. Redskins)
At least the St. Louis Rams were able to move the ball in Week 1. Granted, the Lions aren't great defensively, so scoring will be tougher against the Washington Redskins. Fortunately, kicker Greg Zuerlein is quite reliable and can hit from around 50 yards (long of 48 against Detroit).
5. Phil Dawson, Browns (at Bengals)
If there's anyone who can score for the Cleveland Browns, it's Phil Dawson. A few times, Cleveland saw some success offensively against Philadelphia, but drives kept stalling as expected. Fortunately, Dawson was able to connect, and the Browns will need this dependability against Cincinnati for any shot at scoring.
