Geno Atkins had a good, but not elite, year in fantasy. He was the #516 ranked fantasy player this season. Even though he missed a few games, he played enough to make his overall fantasy rank better than what it is based on average fantasy points where he is the #59 defensive lineman. His production dropped throughout the season.
In his first 4 games he averaged 5 FPs and that declined to 3.3 in his final 5 games. His fantasy production is more volatile that most players based on having a relatively high standard deviation. When he is good, he is really good but when he is off, he is really off. He averaged 3.2 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 12 fantasy points. Geno Atkins (2019 Season Projection: 23 Solo, 15 Ast, 7.9 Sacks, 1.7 PDs) is projected to take a significant step downward in the upcoming fantasy season. His rank based on total projected fantasy points has him as the #63 player at his position.
Getting older predictably resulted in a drop in production. His fantasy average dropped by 26 percent.
Geno Atkins played in 15 games in 2018. He was the #34 ranked fantasy DL based on total fantasy points. He averaged 3.2 FP per game (#58 ranked based on average). He is trending down based on lower per game fantasy ranking from 2017 to 2018. He is relatively stronger (stats bolded below) than weaker in more categories.
CINCINNATI — Bengals defensive tackle Geno Atkins has been voted onto the American Football Conference’s 2019 Pro Bowl starting team, according to a Tuesday night news release from the Bengals.
The Jan. 27 game will be Atkins’ seventh Pro Bowl, making him the most-selected defensive Bengals player in team history.
“It’s very rewarding for him to be elected to the Pro Bowl again,” head coach Marvin Lewis said in the news release. “He deserves it.”
Fellow Bengals A.J. Green, Joe Mixon, S. Clayton Fejedelem and Alex Erickson were also named to the team as alternates.
