Geno Atkins was activated off the PUP list on Wednesday, July 30th. We'll be watching for setbacks, but this is the clearest sign yet that he'll be ready for Week 1 after suffering a torn ACL on Halloween last year.


Over the 2011-2012 seasons Geno Atkins emerged as the top interior lineman in the fantasy game. His 21 sacks were easily the most by a defensive tackle over that span. In 2012 Atkins was not only the most box score productive interior lineman in the league, he was a top ten lineman overall for fantasy owners. His tackle numbers were down in 2013 but Atkins was on pace for a second season with double digit sacks when he was lost to a significant knee injury in week nine. All signs point to his being on schedule for a return in 2014 but he may not be the same player on the field early in the season. The long term prospects for Atkins are through the roof but redraft owners will want to proceed with some caution, at least until we get to see him on the field. (May 19)
