Akiem Hicks drawing interest from the Vikings

Akiem Hicks is expected to receive interest from the Minnesota Vikings once Free Agency begins according to Evan Massey.

Fantasy Impact

Hicks spent the last 6 years in Chicago and made a Pro Bowl during his time there. The addition of Hicks to the center of the Minnesota defense will help the team stop the run, in a division that features running backs such as Aaron Jones, David Montgomery, and D'Andre Swift.

Akiem Hicks is day-to-day with a quad injury

Akiem Hicks was unable to practice on Friday or Saturday with a reported quad issue. He's listed as day-to-day.

Fantasy Impact

Hicks' 2019 season was plagued with injuries, but he helped the Bears defense get off to a historically great start while healthy the first four weeks. The Bears "points against" after Hicks' Week 4 injury nearly doubled for the rest of the season. In addition, opposing offenses were able to focus on fellow superstar Khalil Mack, keeping him to just four sacks over the final 12 weeks. Hicks' presence is invaluable for the Bears and they'll hope for a healthier 2020 season.

Fantasy Impact

Hicks ends the regular season with 55 total tackles, 7.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, and a touchdown. He is a DL1 in most formats and should be a top priority in IDP leagues with a DT roster spot.
