Kenny Vaccaro Fantasy Football News 2019

The Titans have agreed to a 4-year extension with S Kenny Vaccaro and made official the release of S Johnathan Cyprien. Vaccaro didn't put up special fantasy numbers with Tennessee last season, but he's capable of spot-starter production for fantasy football.

Titans S Kenny Vaccaro is questionable for Sunday morning's game against the Chargers. Vaccaro missed the past 2 games with an elbow injury and put in just limited practices this week. He's not a strong enough asset to gamble on before proving he's all the way back.

Titans S Kenny Vaccaro is expected to miss 2-4 weeks after dislocating his right elbow in Sunday's win over the Eagles, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Tennessee signed Vaccaro as a free agent to step in after starter Johnathan Cyprien landed on IR. We'll see if the team looks outside the roster for help over the next few weeks.

After visiting with several free-agent safeties, the Titans have reached a deal with former Saints S Kenny Vaccaro, ESPN reports. That comes, of course, after Tennessee lost S Johnathan Cyprien for the season. We'll see if Vaccaro can work his way into the starting lineup alongside S Kevin Byard. Vaccaro's a better fantasy player than real player.

Saints S Kenny Vaccaro is questionable for Sunday's game against Washington with the groin injury that kept him out last week. Vaccaro didn't practice at all this week and looks like a shaky bet for your IDP lineup.

The Saints have ruled S Kenny Vaccaro out for Sunday's game against the Bills because of a groin injury. Nick Underhill of The Advocate reports that Vaccaro said he doesn't expect the injury to linger. S Vonn Bell saw increased playing time last week, when Vaccaro left in the 1st half.

The Saints benched S Kenny Vaccaro during Sunday's loss to the Patriots. Vaccaro had admitted to poor coverage play against the Vikings in Week 1 but seemed surprised by Sunday's move. "I know Gronk had two catches on me, really great catches, and that was about it," he said afterward, per ESPN's Mike Triplett. "That's all that really happened. The next thing I know, I'm sitting next to Coach Payton." We'll see where this goes. Rumors also floated over the past week that the Saints were looking into trading Vaccaro, whose contract ends after this season. HC Sean Payton downplayed the rumors, but a move would probably be good for Vaccaro's playing time at this point. He's droppable in most IDP leagues this week. There are too many viable DB options to merit riding a safety with a short leash.

The Saints announced Friday that S Kenny Vaccaro has dropped his appeal of a 4-game suspension for a PED violation. That means he'll miss the final 4 weeks to serve the ban. Vonn Bell has already been a full-time player with Vaccaro around, and Jairus Byrd has been near that level. We'll see exactly what New Orleans will do to fill in for Vaccaro.

The Saints list S Kenny Vaccaro (ankle), MLB James Laurinaitis (quad) and OLB Dannell Ellerbe (quad) as questionable for Sunday's game in San Diego. According to ESPN's Mike Triplett, Vaccaro has expressed confidence that he'll play after missing Week 3. Laurinaitis was added to the injury report this week and hasn't spoken to reporters since. Ellerbe just returned to practice this week after missing the 1st 3 games. If he remains out of the lineup, Craig Robertson would start in his place again. Should Ellerbe return, IDP owners might want to wait and see him get through a game before using him. Robertson has delivered strong numbers to date, though, indicating the upside in the position.

Saints S Kenny Vaccaro sat out practice Thursday with an ankle issue that knocked him temporarily out of Sunday's loss to the Giants. Vaccaro suffered the injury in the middle of the 3rd quarter, though, yet missed only 6 total defensive snaps. We'd bet on him being OK to play Monday night against the Falcons, but we'll have to watch his status through the weekend. Given the Monday-night kickoff, we'll hope to get a meaningful update before the Sunday games.

The Saints jumped up into Round 2 via trade with the Patriots to pick S Vonn Bell. The former Buckeye might have trouble starting right away, with safeties Jairus Byrd and Kenny Vaccaro still around, but New Orleans has continued to need help in the secondary. Bell's a late-round option in IDP dynasty rookie drafts.

The Saints placed S Kenny Vaccaro on IR Wednesday after he fractured his left ankle in Sunday's loss at Carolina.  S Roman Harper stepped in against the Panthers and figures to start Sunday against the Bucs.  Check our DB rankings on Friday to see if Harper carries any sleeper appeal.

Saints rookie S Kenny Vaccaro left the field on a cart after suffering a nasty-looking left leg injury against the Panthers.  We'll certainly be watching for the official diagnosis.  Vaccaro has developed well and proved a versatile presence in his 1st Saints season.  A healthy Vaccaro would look like a potential top 10 fantasy DB as soon as 2014.  Roman Harper stepped after Vaccaro went down.

Saints S Kenny Vaccaro is active tonight against the Falcons after sitting out a game with a concussion.  The rookie has proved important in coverage vs. TEs this season, which adds some sneaky IDP upside against Tony Gonzalez.  But Vaccaro hasn't done anything special in fantasy this season, and Atlanta ranks among the weakest DB matchups for the year.  Look elsewhere for your starters this week.
Saints TE Ben Watson will miss Sunday's matchup with the Niners because of the concussion he suffered lasat week against the Cowboys.  Rookie S Kenny Vaccaro will also spend the game sidelined for the same injury.  Neither would have been much of a fantasy option anyway.  Vaccaro's absence just might allow for S Roman Harper to jump back into the starting lineup after missing the past 7 games.  Vaccaro's absence also might hurt New Orleans' chances at defending against 49ers TE Vernon Davis.  Vaccaro has often locked up with TEs in coverage.

Saints S Kenny Vaccaro said Monday that he'll miss at least 1 game because of the concussion he suffered in Sunday night's win over the Cowboys.  His absence would allow Malcolm Jenkins and Roman Harper to start if both are healthy enough to do so.  Both veterans missed Week 10.  Rafael Bush started alongside Vaccaro, and Isa Abdul-Quddus worked in.  We don't expect to recommend any Saints safety in an already unfavorable matchup with the Niners.
