Hicks recorded one tackle in Sunday's loss to the Vikings, and he ended the season with seven sacks, two forced fumbles and 53 tackles. Hicks certainly rewarded the Bears with a very solid season after they signed him to a two-year deal last off-season, as he had registered 9.5 sacks over his previous five seasons before having the best season of his career in 2016. Since his seven sacks were recorded over five different games, he was a very inconsistent IDP option, though he had excellent upside. It's reasonable to expect that the 27-year-old can at least match his production in his second year with the Bears in 2017.
Hicks notched a sack and six tackles Sunday against the Lions. Hicks has three sacks over his last two games, giving him a total of six on the season. As a defensive end, he's not an elite fantasy option, but in deeper IDP leagues, his ability to get to the quarterback gives him weekly upside.
Hicks notched a pair of sacks and 10 tackles Sunday against the 49ers. Hicks recorded two sacks in a game for the second time in his last five contests, and he has six sacks on the year. Although he's a very solid player in defensive coordinator Vic Fangio's defense, his sporadic production makes him a very low-floor option in IDP leagues.
Hicks notched a pair of sacks along with four tackles Monday against the Vikings. The Bears tore up the Vikings' offensive line for five sacks with Hicks leading the charge. He now has recorded four sacks over his last five contests, and he's just half a sack short of the career-high he set in 2013. Although his numbers aren't elite, he's becoming a viable option in deeper IDP leagues.
Hicks recorded a sack, a forced fumble and a tackle Saturday against the Chiefs. Hicks also registered a pair of hits on Alex Smith and was one of the bright spots on a defense that struggled to keep the Chiefs off the field. After having a bit of a breakout with the Patriots last year, it wouldn't be a surprise if he were able to post a respectable number of sacks in Vic Fangio's defensive scheme this season. He's someone to keep an eye on in IDP leagues to see if he continues to improve.
