Geno Atkins: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Atkins' (knee) status for Sunday's third preseason game is yet to be determined, although he is fully expected to play in the Bengals' regular season opener Sept. 7 versus the Ravens.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Atkins is yet to play since tearing his ACL last October, but the defensive tackle has been practicing, albeit in an unknown capacity beyond individual drills, since coming off Cincinnati's PUP list July 30. As one of the league's elite defensive linemen, Atkins' return has been handled carefully to ensure he's ready to go once the results matter. However, it could be worthwhile for Atkins to gain game experience during the preseason, so he might be involved in the Bengals' third preseason contest Sunday. Expect his status to be updated as the week unfolds.
Atkins has been activated from the PUP list in advance of Wednesday's practice, the Bengals' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

With Leon Hall out for the year due to an Achilles' injury and Rey Maualuga currently sidelined with an MCL injury, this is a staggering loss for the Bengals' defense, given Atkins' status as an elite interior lineman. Brandon Thompson, who took Atkins' place Thursday, figures to see expanded duties going forward, as a result of Atkins' season-ending injury.
Atkins is slated to undergo an MRI on his right ACL on Friday, the Baltimore Sun reports. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Bengals are expecting the MRI to confirm a tear.

2014

2013

Atkins is perhaps the top 4-3 tackle in the league, and his pass-rushing skills warrant a rankings boost in leagues that give big points to sacks or don’t emphasize the tackle category. But teams tend to avoid Atkins in the running game, so his 54 tackles from 2012 might be a best-case scenario, particularly given that he had just 47 the year before. Atkins should in any case continue to be a double-digit sack threat after posting 12.5 in 2012. Atkins is so explosive and plays with such good leverage that even double-teams aren't necessarily effective on him.

2012

Atkins does not post high tackle totals (just 47 total, 26 solo, in 2011), and that figures to get no better in 2012 – Atkins broke out big time as a disruptor last year and will be the top concern of opposing offensive lines. He totaled 7.5 sacks in 2011, his first as a starter, and 13 of his tackles went for a loss. Atkins is explosive, strong and plays with great leverage, making him one of the league's biggest threats to collapse or break into the pocket. Give him a boost in leagues that reward extra for tackles for “stuffs”, i.e., tackles for a loss.
