RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Atkins continues to be one of the most dominant defensive lineman in the league year in and year out. Last season, the seven-year veteran racked up 42 tackles, including 11 sacks, and a forced fumble. At 28 years old, Atkins is poised for another big year heading a defense that was seventh-best at stopping the run last season, making him a valuable option in IDP leagues.

2014

An Oct. 31 knee injury is the only concern for Atkins' IDP stock. As of press time, Atkins was expected to participate in some portion of training camp, with Week 1 feeling like a relative certainty for him in the meantime. As long as he's healthy, Atkins is the most disruptive defensive tackle in the league, perhaps even the best defensive tackle by any metric. He possesses unmatched lower-body explosiveness and establishes leverage over the majority of those who attempt to block him, allowing him to split double-teams and close the deal by wrapping up ballcarriers. His tackle totals are modest, but Atkins has 26 sacks in his last 41 games, even with the bullseye on him.

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.
