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.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks (knee) is active for Sunday's tilt against Philadelphia, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Hicks sat out practice Wednesday and Thursday with the ankle issue before taking part in a limited Friday session. Though he's been given the green light to play Sunday, Hicks could be see his reps capped during the contest. The Bears activated John Jenkins for just the third time all season to provide added depth along the defensive line in the event Hicks can't take on his usual workload, according to Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune.

Bears' Akiem Hicks: Continues hot streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hicks notched a sack along with five tackles in Chicago's Week 8 victory over the Panthers.

Hicks continued his assault on opposing quarterbacks by posting at least one sack in each of the last three games. Although he failed to record a sack in Weeks 2 through 4, he's posted sacks in more than half of the games he's played this season. With an impressive six sacks on the season, he's been an outstanding IDP option despite periods of inconsistency.
