Tue, 16 Dec 2014 15:14:43 -0800

New Orleans Saints SS Kenny Vaccaro was returned to the slot in nickel packages in Week 15 against the Chicago Bears, and he thrived during the team's impressive win. He played 70% of the defensive snaps in the game and also played on all four special teams for the first time in his career. "My favorite thing to do is, 'You guard him, lock him down.' Or, 'You shoot that gap,'" Vaccaro said. "That's what I'm really good at. You tell me to lock somebody down, they ain't catching the ball." CB Terrence Frederick made his starting debut in the game, and CB Patrick Robinson moved to dime packages with CB Corey White inactive.

Saints | Kenny Vaccaro selected 15th overall

Thu, 25 Apr 2013 18:53:00 -0700

The New Orleans Saints selected Texas S Kenny Vaccaro with the 15th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: He's a playmaker who could produce takeaways, making him an IDP stab. But Rob Ryan's system doesn't always provide many opportunities for fantasy points in the secondary, and the Saints' D as a whole still needs to rebuild before being a team worth considering for your lineup.
