Bears' Akiem Hicks: Notches a sack in Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks recorded a sack and three tackles in the Bears Week 1 loss to the Packers.

Hicks has proven to be an excellent pass rusher over the past few seasons, but with the addition of Khalil Mack, he'll be in position to have a career year. It was clear in this contest that with defenses focusing on slowing Mack, Hicks will have plenty of one-on-one matchups to exploit when rushing the passer throughout the course of the season.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Healthy for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (knee) was not on the Bears' injury report Tuesday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Hicks missed some time during the preseason due to a sore knee, but it appears to no longer be an issue with the regular season approaching. He should start at defensive end for the Bears in the opener, looking to build off of a career-high 8.5 sacks in 2017.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Inactive for Saturday's preseason contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (knee) is being held out of Saturday's preseason game against the Chiefs, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Hicks has been nursing a sore knee for the past couple of days, and the Bears are likely averse to risking their starting defensive end's health in a game that is ultimately non-consequential to him. With Hicks out, look for Bilal Nichols and Roy Robertson-Harris to see additional snaps with the first-team defense.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Posts three stops in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks collected three stops in the Week 17 loss to the Vikings, and he ended the season with 54 tackles and 8.5 sacks in 16 games.

Hicks set a career high with 8.5 sacks and now has 15 sacks in his first two seasons with the Bears after having collected just 9.5 sacks in his five years in the league before heading to Chicago. The veteran had a great first half with seven sacks before going into a five-game drought, but he'll continue to be a solid, though not elite, IDP option as he heads into the third year of a six-year contract with the Bears.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Finally back in sack column
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks notched a sack and four tackles in Sunday's 20-10 loss to the Lions.

After having collected seven sacks over the first eight games of the season, this was the first time that Hicks got to the quarterback in any of his last six contests. Although he's been an outstanding defender for the Bears, his second-half slide has made him a difficult player to trust in fantasy lineups.
