Amukamara posted his second season with more than one pick, tying his career high with three, while collecting the second-most tackles in any of his eight years in the league. He's signed with the Bears through 2020 and based on his ability to post solid tackle totals, he should continue to be an IDP with a solid floor but limited upside.
Amukamara tied his career high with his third interception of the season, and this was just the second time he's picked off more than one pass in any campaign. In addition, he's notched at least five tackles in six straight games, giving him a solid floor and making him a strong weekly IDP option.
Amukamara easily posted his highest tackle total of the season with eight, but this was the first strong fantasy performance he's had since Week 2 due to in the interception. Based on the consistent downside he's shown, he's difficult to trust in weekly lineups.
Amukamara (hamstring) was a full participant in Friday's practice.
Amukamara aggravated a hamstring injury during Sunday's loss to the Dolphins, but he appears to have put the issue behind him. The starting cornerback seems to be trending towards suiting up for Chicago's game against the Patriots in Week 7.
Amukamara aggravated his hamstring injury and is doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.
Amukamara was cleared from the injury report Friday but appeared to aggravate the hamstring injury that cost him Week 4. The game is in the closing stages of the fourth quarter, making a return extremely unlikely.
