Vaccaro had four tackles (three solo), three passes defensed, a fumble recovery for a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 52-38 win against the Lions. Vaccaro was benched for poor play in Week 2 but has been a different player since then. In the last three games since his demotion, the Saints' starting strong safety has recorded two picks, defended five passes, and notched 14 total tackles. In addition, his first-quarter fumble recovery in the end zone was the first touchdown of his NFL career. Vaccaro has played every defensive snap for New Orleans in each of the last three games and should continue to be a quality IDP option in most leagues.
Vaccaro had five tackles (three solo) and an interception in Sunday's 34-13 win against the Panthers. Vaccaro was benched in the second half of last week's game against the Patriots but he responded nicely in Carolina. The interception was only the sixth of his career and he has not yet recorded a sack this season, but the fifth-year safety's 16 total tackles rank third on the Saints. Vaccaro should continue to be a serviceable starter for IDP owners.
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
