Vaccaro has been suspended for violating the NFL's PED policy and will miss the remainder of the regular season.
Vaccaro has been suspended for four games and decided to serve the suspension immedietly rather than fight it to avoid it possibly carrying over to next season. If the Saints manage to make the playoffs he'll be eligible to play then. Vaccaro will wrap up the regular season with 51 tackles, five passes defensed, two interceptions, two forced fumbles, and one sack in 11 games played.
Vaccaro had nine tackles (seven solo), a sack, and an interception in Sunday's loss to the Broncos.
Facing a possible four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's drug policy, Vaccaro was a monster in what could be one of this last games of the year for fantasy owners. If for some reason Vaccaro is able to avoid suspension, Sunday's impressive performance is a reminder that the versatile safety, who is second on the team in tackles, should be owned in most IDP leagues.
Vaccaro is facing a potential four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's drug policy, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The Saints are facing the prospect of losing one of their top defensive players for a quarter of the season, but Vaccaro's availability isn't in question for Sunday's contest against the Broncos. Whenever a final call is made, he'll likely cede his spot at strong safety to rookie Vonn Bell
Vaccaro made nine tackles (all solo) and forced a fumble in Sunday's win against the 49ers.
Despite dealing with a minor knee injury this week, Vaccaro's nine tackles tied a season high and the forced fumble was his second of the year. Although the Saints' starting strong safety does not have a sack or interception this season, his 44 tackles rank second on the team. Vaccaro remains a solid option in most IDP leagues.
Vaccaro (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's contest against the 49ers.
Vaccaro figures to get the start at strong safety Sunday despite dealing with the minor knee issue. After recording just three tackles (two solo) during Week 8's win over the Seahawks, Vaccaro will look to get back on track in terms of IDP production.
