Acho saw the most defensive snaps of his three years in Chicago during the 2017 campaign (640) and his output for the club -- 45 tackles (29 solo) and three sacks -- resulted in the Bears rewarding him with a shiny new two-year contract. He should assume his role as the team's starting right outside linebacker again in 2018, but sports little upside as an IDP option.
Acho registered 45 tackles to go with three sacks and a forced fumble in 16 games to conclude his seventh NFL campaign.
Acho's three sacks were the most he's had in a season since his first two years in the league, when he was with the Cardinals in 2011 and 2012. He'll be headed for unrestricted free agency, but after averaging fewer than three tackles in each of his seven seasons, he'll be a low-upside IDP, regardless of destination.
Acho recorded a sack, a forced fumble and four tackles in Saturday's 20-10 loss to the Lions.
Acho had his most productive game of the year, as he recorded his first forced fumble of the season while adding his first full sack to get him to 1.5 on the year. However, with just one game of more than four tackles, he's been a low-volume IDP option.
