Vaccaro made five tackles (all solo), including a sack, in Sunday's win against the Colts. The sack was Vaccaro's first of the season, and he is second on the team in tackles, with 44 stops (30 solo) through seven games. Seemingly healthy after dealing with a malaise of injuries last season, Vaccaro should continue to be an excellent defensive back option in IDP leagues due to his aggressive, downhill playing style.
Vaccaro had five tackles (two solo) in Thursday's win against the Falcons. Vaccaro has notched at least nine tackles in half of the Saints' six games, including 11 stops in Week 5 against Philadelphia. In fact, Vaccaro leads the entire Saints' defense in tackles, with 39 take downs on the season. He has yet to force a turnover or even record a sack, but with the return to health of secondary mates Jairius Byrd and Keenan Lewis, Vaccaro's aggressive play near the line of scrimmage should continue, making him an excellent option at defensive back in most IDP leagues.
Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro made nine tackles (four solo) in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. After a quiet Week 1, in which Vaccaro had only a pair of tackles, the Saints promised to put him in a position where he was playing closer to the line of scrimmage. Since then, Vaccaro notched nine tackles in each of the last two games. The Saints may not be winning, but as long as the third-year safety continues to play in the box, he should continue to be an above average option in IDP leagues.
It has been revealed that Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro was inactive Sunday against Tampa Bay due to a quad injury that flared up in practice Friday. Vaccaro started 14 of the first 15 games this season.
The inclusion of safety Kenny Vaccaro on the inactive list for the Saints on Sunday is a surprise, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. He practiced fully all week despite what has reportedly been a nagging quad injury. NFL Network had claimed before the game two weeks ago against Chicago that Vaccaro was destined to be benched, but he played in that game as a nickel back. He started in Week 16.
