Kenny Vaccaro made 104 tackles (71 solo) and three sacks in 16 games this season.
Although there were very few positives in the New Orleans 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.
Kenny 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.
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 only has one sack this season, Vaccaro is second on the
Kenny 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.
Kenny Vaccaro had five tackles (two solo) in Thursday's win against the Falcons.
Vaccaro has notched at least nine tackles in half of the New Orleans 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.
