Vertonghen won two aerial duels and made six clearances, three interceptions, and two tackles to preserve the clean sheet in Tuesday's 0-0 Champions League group stage draw against Bayer Leverkusen.

Vertonghen was strong in the central defense once again and was able to keep a high-powered Bayer Leverkusen attack from scoring and claiming three vital points in a tight Group E table. He has played every minute for Tottenham in Premier League and Champions League play and is a strong choice at defender for fantasy managers. Tottenham face AFC Bournemouth this Saturday.

Jan Vertonghen: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

October 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vertonghen had 10 clearances, two blocked shots and two tackles in Sunday's 2-0 win over Manchester City.

Make it four shutouts in five for Vertonghen and the Spurs. In the second year of a CB partnership with Toby Alderweireld, Vertonghen looks completely comfortable. He has a great chance to earn another clean sheet at West Brom in two weeks.

September 28, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vertonghen and the Spurs back line held CSKA Moscow scoreless in Tuesday's 1-0 win. He finished with three aerials won and three successful tackles.

Spurs now have three clean sheets in their last four matches overall, but face Man City this weekend and Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld will have their hands full with Sergio Aguero.

September 18, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vertonghen and Spurs held Sunderland scoreless in Sunday's 1-0 win. He finished with seven aerials won and two successful tackles.

Tottenham have been great defensively in the early season with three clean sheets in five matches. Vertonghen and company will again be solid options at Middlesbrough next weekend.

September 10, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vertonghen won two tackles and helped keep a clean sheet Saturday versus Stoke City.

Vertonghen was rarely challenged as Spurs enjoyed most of the possession, but he played his part in keeping the clean sheet in tact. Vertonghen has been a large factor in Spurs allowing just two goals through the first four matches, and he should be a steady contributor once again next Sunday versus Sunderland.

August 20, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vertonghen had 10 clearances, three interceptions and a tackle in Saturday's 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Another strong defensive performance for the veteran Belgian CB. Vertonghen remains a regular in one of the league's best defences, making him a solid week-to-week option. He's worth consideration, though not an automatic start next week against Liverpool.

August 13, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vertonghen (ankle) is starting on Saturday against Everton.

Vertonghen injured his ankle during the European Championship, but extra preseason training sessions got him fit for the opener. The fantasy matchup is actually better than initially expected, as the Toffees will be without Romelu Lukaku and Seamus Coleman.

August 12, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vertonghen (ankle) is fit for Saturday's match against Everton, manager Mauricio Pochettino said Thursday.

Vertonghen suffered his injury during the European Championship, but he's been putting in extra training sessions to get him ready for the season. Given his fitness, he's likely to start alongside Toby Alderweireld in the hope of slowing down a strong Everton attack.
