2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Atkinson is yet to record a rushing attempt in the NFL, and that might not change in 2016. He spent the preseason in Oakland where Latavius Murray is solidified as the Raiders' starting running back, and Taiwan Jones and rookie DeAndre Washington are both competent backups in themselves. Subsequently, Atkinson didn't make the Raiders 53-man cut resulting in the Browns' decision to pick him up. He'll likely be the No. 4 option out of the backfield, while Isaiah Crowell, Duke Johnson, and Terrell Watson lead the way.

2015

As an undrafted rookie out of Notre Dame, Atkinson played in five games with the Raiders at the end of last season, albeit exclusively on special teams. He returned seven kickoffs for 134 yards, with a long of 28 yards, and added a tackle.
