Hicks collected four tackles along with a fumble recovery in Sunday's victory over the Steelers.
Hicks seems to make a big play just about every week, and his fumble recovery was pivotal as the Bears were able to get out to an early lead in a huge victory against a tough Pittsburgh squad. He's really blossomed over the last couple years in the Chicago defense, and he's become a very strong IDP option.
Hicks recorded a pair of sacks along with three tackles in Chicago's Week 1 loss to the Falcons.
Hicks was the only Chicago defender to sack Matt Ryan, which was impressive since Atlanta was playing with a lead for most of the contest. His strong start comes after a strong preseason, and he could be a sneaky IDP option.
Hicks reportedly will receive $30 million guaranteed as the Bears lock up their stud defensive lineman. The 27-year-old had 54 tackles with seven sacks and two forced fumbles during his first season with Chicago in 2016, and will likely be depended on as the anchor of the defensive front again this season.
Hicks posted a sack and three tackles in Sunday's 19-7 win over the Titans.
Hicks beat arguably the Titans best offensive lineman, Jack Conklin, for the sack on an obvious passing down by using excellent technique to work past him. He should be a solid IDP option in leagues that start multiple defensive linemen.
Hicks (Achilles) is expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Cardinals.
Hicks was tending to a sore Achilles this week, but it was never believed to be a big deal. He should slot in with the first-string defense Saturday.
