Akiem Hicks (foot) expected to play in Week 14

Akiem Hicks, who has been dealing with a foot injury, is expected to play in Tampa Bay's Week 14 matchup against San Francisco.

Fantasy Impact

This matchup is tied for the slate's lowest predicted total of 37 points. Hicks's presence will certainly help attack a 49ers offense with Brock Purdy at the helm, so Tampa D/ST should be rostered everywhere.

Akiem Hicks (foot) ruled out for Week 8

Akiem Hicks (foot) has been ruled out and will not play Thursday night in a Week 8 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Impact

Hicks has struggled to stay healthy for a depleted Buccaneers defense so far this season and would have provided a big boost Thursday night against a Ravens offense that will run the ball early and often. The Buccaneers D/ST will be a risky play for fantasy owners brave enough to roll the dice this week.

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.

Akiem Hicks (elbow) officially active Week 15

Akiem Hicks (elbow) is listed as active for Sunday's Week 15 matchup against the Packers.

Fantasy Impact

Hicks has been out since Week 5. He vastly improve a Bears run defense that has been gashed on the ground in recent weeks. It's unclear if Hicks will be on a snap count, but he is all systems go for Week 15. Fantasy owners in IDP leagues can safely insert him into their lineups.
