2019 Fantasy Outlook
During his four-year tenure with the Eagles, Hicks had issues with durability, missing 21 regular-season contests due to a variety of injuries. When he was on the field, though, he averaged 5.9 tackles per game while tallying seven interceptions, five sacks and one defensive TD. In the move from Philadelphia to Arizona, Hicks will have to adjust to the 3-4 alignment preferred by coordinator Vance Joseph. On a positive note, Hicks doesn't have much competition for the all-important tackle - for IDP purposes - so his first campaign with triple digits may be in the offing. Read Past Outlooks

Accrues just six tackles in Week 5

October 7, 2019
Hicks had a season-low six tackles during Sunday's 26-23 win in Cincinnati.
ANALYSIS
After accumulating double-digit stops and pacing the Cardinals each of the first four games of the season, Hicks ranked in a tie for fourth among his teammates in the category Week 5. Despite the lacking output, he sits behind only IDP regulars Luke Kuechly and Blake Martinez with 54 tackles on the season. Look for Hicks to bounce back Sunday against the Falcons.

Hicks has the upside for more than 100 tackles if he could ever stay healthy. Unfortunately, though, he ruptured his Achilles in Week 7 last year and missed half a season for the second time in his three years as a pro. Now, he'll not only have to stay healthy in order to shed the "injury-prone" label, he'll also have to prove he's regained his explosiveness that this injury notoriously saps from others. If he's able to make a full recovery and play at his prior level, the former Longhorn could surprise as an impact player in IDP leagues.
Hicks somehow finished last year with just 85 tackles on 971 snaps, and his IDP utility would have been significantly lower if not for his five interceptions. There's some buylow potential here, however, because Hicks posted 50 tackles on 450 snaps the year before. At the same time, he's shown unique interception production in both of his pro seasons, giving him seven total on 1,421 snaps. He's a former top recruit and 2014 third-round selection with standout athleticism, so improvement in his third season is quite plausible.
A generally unheralded third-round pick in the 2015 draft, Hicks would begin the season as Philadelphia's fourth inside linebacker but finish the year as the team's best one. Heading into 2016, he's poised to break out. Playing 450 snaps, Hicks finished his rookie year with 50 tackles (43 solo), one sack and two interceptions in eight games, at which point a torn pectoral muscle ended his year. In addition to the easy triple-digit tackle pace Hicks displayed, one has to be encouraged by his extremely high solo tackle percentage. He was medically cleared in April.
The Eagles’ coaching staff seems to like Hicks for his size, athleticism and football acumen. The third-round pick out of Texas will likely make the roster and be worked into the linebacker rotation; but, as we saw with the team’s first-round pick Marcus Smith last season, Hicks will need to earn his playing time.
