Vertonghen (knee) has been ruled out of the Saturday's clash with Watford.

As expected the defender has been confirmed to be sidelined for another week. Kevin Wimmer did great in his spot and he'll probably keep the starting center back role alongside Toby Alderweireld.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vertonghen was diagnosed with damage to his MCL, the club announced Tuesday.

Vertonghen suffered the injury during last weekend's match against Crystal Palace, and he'll be a huge void to fill in defense. Kevin Wimmer replaced him after he suffered the injury, though it's unclear if he'll get a shot to start alongside Toby Alderweireld.

Vertonghen was taken off from Saturday's match against Crystal Palace after suffering a knee injury, according to Ben Pearce of Ham & High Sports.

Vertonghen has been a defensive rock for Spurs this season, though centerback partner Toby Alderweireld has been the stronger fantasy option. Kevin Wimmer replaced Vertonghen on Saturday, though it's unclear if he's a legitimate starting option if the latter has to miss any additional time.

Vertonghen won three tackles and made four interceptions in Saturday's 2-0 win over Southampton.

The Belgian was a force on the defensive end in Saturday's victory, helping Spurs to their second clean sheet in the last four matches. Vertonghen has some value in formats that reward defensive action stats, but his lack of involvement in the attack generally makes him clean-sheet dependent. He is a rock in the middle of the Tottenham defense, however, and will have a favorable matchup versus Norwich next week.

Vertonghen kept a clean sheet and was issued a yellow card in Sunday's 1-0 victory over Sunderland.

Vertonghen has been a rock for Spurs on their back line, keeping his second consecutive clean sheet. He was also issued his second yellow card of the season. While discipline isn't really much of a problem for the Belgian national, he did pick up six last season and it could be a problem if he accumulates them at this rate.

Vertonghen was busy Saturday, scoring off a deflection and picking up a yellow card in the 2-1 win over Sunderland.

Vertonghen also led Spurs' with six clearances as well as four aerials won and had an empty net goal called off for being offsides in the final minute. If it weren't for Eriksen being such a stud in this game, Vertonghen would have been named man of the match. It's tough to deploy Vertonghen in fantasy as Spurs' simply cant get clean sheets, but this game is a promising sign for the Belgian defender. Vertonghen and Spurs' have a small break approaching and will be in action again in two weeks when they take on West Brom.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vertonghen and Tottenham have ended talks about a new contract for the defender without signing a new deal, reports the Daily Mail.

The defender insisted he is happy at Tottenham, but simply was not prepared to agree to a new contract with the club. His current contract has four years left to run with the club.

Vertonghen will not play in Sunday's season-finale against Aston Villa due to his ankle injury, the club's official web site reports.

Vertonghen has not played since suffering the injury back on March 30 against Liverpool. He'll end the season with no goals and no assists, and only three clean sheets in 2014.
