Hicks has been incredibly consistent in his three years with the Bears, as he's posted between 53-55 tackles and seven-8.5 sacks in each campaign. With three years remaining on his contract, he should continue to be a centerpiece of the Bears' defense and a strong IDP at the defensive line position.
Hicks registered a sack and three tackles in Chicago's Week 14 win over the Rams.
After not collecting a sack in five straight games, Hicks now has one in three of the last four contests, and fantasy owners should ride him during this hot streak.
Hicks rushed for a touchdown while adding a sack and six tackles in Chicago's loss to the Giants.
With the Bears trying to get a much-needed score at the goal line, they handed the ball to Hicks, who dove into the end zone to help the team get the game into overtime. Otherwise, he notched his fifth sack of the season, and his ability to get to the quarterback is where most of his fantasy value will be derived.
Hicks (Achilles) is active for Sunday's game versus the Giants, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Hicks has been an excellent asset to the Bears' top-ranked defense, making 39 tackles, four sacks and forcing three fumbles. Hicks will have a good chance to get to Giants quarterback Eli Manning, who ranks second in the league with 38 sacks.
Hicks (Achilles) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants.
Hicks was a full participant in Friday's practice after having been listed as DNP on Wednesday and Thursday, but his status for Sunday's tilt against the Giants remains in question. The veteran defensive end does not appear to be nursing an injury of long-term severity, but the Bears could opt to take a cautious approach to Hicks' health due to the nature of Achilles issues and rest him Week 13. If Hicks does not suit up, expect Bilal Nichols to benefit from a starting workload.
