Atkins had two solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's game against the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

Atkins now has six sacks through nine games, and he has a chance of passing his career high of 12.5 sacks. Still, the eight-year defensive tackle has left fantasy owners out to dry four times this season when he has failed to record a sack, making Atkins most worthy in daily formats against questionable offensive lines.

Atkins had five tackles (two for a loss) and two sacks Thursday against the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

At 29 years old, Atkins is proving he can still be the pass rusher he has been his whole career. The Bengals only have four sacks in their first two games, and Atkins has three of them, making him invaluable to them and a solid choice for fantasy lineups.

Atkins notched a pair of sacks and five tackles in Sunday's victory over the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

After failing to record a sack in three games, Atkins got to Robert Griffin twice to give him 6.5 sacks on the season. As an interior lineman, his unsteady production makes him an upside-only lineup option in IDP leagues.

Atkins posted 1.5 sacks along with two tackles in Week 4 against the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

The defensive tackle has just 11 tackles over four games to start the season, but Atkins now has 2.5 sacks, which puts him just behind the pace that saw him drop the quarterback 11 times last year. In leagues that reward heavily for sacks, he's one of the very few interior linemen who can compete with edge rushers, and he's looking to post the third season of his career with double-digit sacks.

Atkins had a sack in the Bengals' first-round playoff loss to the Steelers, capping off a big rebound season.

EDGE Analysis

In addition to the playoff sack, Atkins had 11 sacks in the regular season, second only to his big breakout season in 2012 where he had 12.5 sacks. The Bengals are still well-equipped to have a great pass rush in 2016, with Atkins and Carlos Dunlap leading the way.

Atkins had a sack that also forced a fumble in Sunday's win over the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

Atkins wasn't all the way back to his dominating form in 2014 after suffering an ACL tear in 2013, but if Sunday is any indication, he might be in line for a bigger year.

Atkins was a rare bright spot in Monday's preseason debacle against the Bucs, recording a sack and four pressures in 24 snaps.

EDGE Analysis

Atkins returned from a torn ACL last season but wasn't his dominant self. Now with a full season separating him from his recovery, there's more reason to hope that he can create more of a pass rush, something the Bengals desperately need.

Atkins has been diagnosed with a slight hyperextension of his right knee, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

The source says the injury is a minor one, which is welcome news considering the bleaker alternatives involving Atkins' surgically repaired knee. With a few extra days to heal before Cincinnati's next game Nov. 16 against New Orleans, Atkins may not have to miss any time.
