Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)This is not the way the season should have ended for the talented young Defensive Rookie of the Year candidate. It's also a tough blow for the Saints, who now have a big hole to fill in the middle of their pass defense.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Some might consider it risky to rank a rookie among the elite, but it's difficult to see how Vaccaro could be anything but a high-floor/high-ceiling IDP investment in 2013. The Saints are desperate to improve their abominable 2012 defense, yet they had only two draft picks in the first three rounds of the draft. That they considered Vaccaro the top choice for making an immediate improvement suggests he'll start right away in 2013. He might not strictly play safety – a slot corner role could await him in nickel formats – but Vaccaro should be around the ball often either way. Moreover, the player Vaccaro is most likely to displace in the starting lineup – Malcolm Jenkins – was a profitable IDP in 2012, totaling 94 tackles in just 13 games.
