    Saints' Kenny Vaccaro: Career highs in tackles and sacks

    Vaccaro made 104 tackles (71 solo) and three sacks in 16 games this season. Although there were very few positives in the Saints' historically bad defensive campaign, Vaccaro's resurgence certain counts as one of them. Vaccaro battled a variety of injuries in 2014, but finally healthy, he was able to set career highs in both tackles and sacks in 2015. While failed to record an interception, Vaccaro excelled as a run stopper. A natural strong safety, Vaccaro played closer to the line of scrimmage this year, and he credited his improved play to defensive coordinator Dennis Allen, who took over for the deposed Rob Ryan midway through the season. With Allen calling the shots again in 2016, Vaccaro could once again be one of the better options at defensive back in IDP leagues.

    Saints' Kenny Vaccaro: Nine more tackles

    Vaccaro made nine tackles (six solo) in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. While he committed a bone-headed taunting penalty that helped keep a Panthers' touchdown drive alive, it was another solid performance by Vaccaro. Finally healthy this season, Vaccaro continues to be one of the league's better IDP options.

    Saints' Kenny Vaccaro: 13 tackles in loss

    Vaccaro made 13 tackles (8 solo) and forced a fumble in Sunday's loss to the Texans. Vaccaro's stats have been up and down as of late, but Sunday marked the third time this season that he recorded double-digit tackles, an impressive feat for a defensive back. Though he has a goose-egg in the turnover department and has only one sack this season, Vaccaro is second on the Saints in tackles, and he should remain a solid option in most IDP leagues.

    Saints' Kenny Vaccaro: First sack of the season

    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.

    Saints' Kenny Vaccaro: Saints' season leader in tackles

    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 has back-to-back nine-tackle games

    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.

    Inactive status for Saints CB Vaccaro a head-scratcher

    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.

    Healthy scratches dominate Saints inactive list

    Tackle Terron Armstead is the lone injured player on the inactive list released by the Saints for their Week 17 game against Tampa Bay. He is dealing with a neck issue that prevented him from practicing all week. The healthy scratches are wide receiversSeantavius Jones and Brandon Coleman, cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste, linebackers Jerry Franklin and Moise Fokou and safety Kenny Vaccaro. The inclusion of the embattled Vaccaro is not a good sign for the 2013 first-round pick.
