Summary

Atkins is an exceptionally athletic big man with a low center of gravity. This makes him hard for offensive linemen to handle one on one, while the talent around him often leaves offenses unable to double him. With 28.5 sacks over the past three seasons there is no doubt Atkins can get to the passer. A stat line of 30 tackles, 17 assists and 8.5 sacks made him a top thirty defensive lineman in most leagues last year. Atkins real value lies in leagues that break out the defensive line positions. Last season's numbers put Atkins on the cusp of the top five among defensive tackles. The only risk here lies in year to year tackle consistency. In 2015 and 2017 respectively Atkins produced a solid 31 and 30 solo stops. In 2014 and 2016 respectively he tallied 20 and 21. Bottom line, Atkins is a top twelve defensive tackle at worst with top five potential. (May 26)
