It seems pretty self-explanatory to me.  The structural data in your
atoms.inp file geenrates atoms that are unphysically close together.
Reasonably enough. Feff complains about that.

You have said nothing about the provenance of your structure data.
Could there be a transcription error?  I notice that the positions
tagged as W11 is one of the two atoms in each case that feff complains

Without further evidence, I don't think either Atoms or Feff are doing
anything wrong.
