Vertonghen put in four crosses and helped keep a clean sheet during Wednesday's 1-0 win over Sweden.

Belgium enjoyed most of the attacking play in Wedenesday's match, freeing up Vertonghen to get forward down the flank while spending minimal time defending. He has transitioned seamlessly to fullback at the international level because of his comfortability with the ball and has become a worthy fantasy play as a result. He should be a strong selection again in Sunday's second-round match versus Hungary.

Despite losing at Old Trafford on Sunday, Mesut Ozil scored and grabbed his 18th assist in league play, making him a great play Wednesday against Swansea City.

June 18, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vertonghen made two interceptions and put in five crosses during Saturday's 3-0 win over Ireland.

Despite shifting to fullback after playing in the center of defense at the club level this season, Vertonghen looks a natural fit on the outside and made an impact on both sides of the ball Saturday. He holds strong fantasy value as a capable attacker from the back on a strong team, and should continue as such in Wednesday's match versus Sweden.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vertonghen had one shot off target, one dribble and three clearances in Sunday's 5-1 season finale loss to Newcastle.

While the Spurs' defense was fairly active offensively trying to help the team mount a come back, they were all horrific on the defensive side of the ball. With the title out of their reach everybody put their guard down and conceded nine goals in the last three games with back-to-back losses at the end. Vertonghen will finish the season without any goals or assists, five yellow cards and nine clean sheets in 29 Premier League games.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vertonghen picked up a clean sheet and added one shot off target and three tackles in Monday's 4-0 dominant win over Stoke.

A very solid work for the center-half in only his second game after almost three-month injury lay-off. While he brings a lot of stability in the heart of the Spurs' defense, though, he doesn't have any goals or assists in 25 Premier League starts and along with four yellow cards he becomes one of the least appealing fantasy options in the Spurs' defense. Next up for him, though, is another good opportunity for a clean sheet when the Spurs are hosting the Baggies on Monday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vertonghen won a pair of tackles during Sunday's clean-sheet win over Manchester United.

The center-half made his largest contribution in the form of sound positional play, but he did not make much of an impact in the box score. Vertonghen has been fairly reliant on clean sheets for fantasy production this season because of his hesitance to get forward, limiting him to a matchup play in most formats. That being said, he could be a useful option once again next week as Spurs face low-scoring Stoke.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vertonghen (knee) is a late fitness test ahead of Sunday's match against Manchester United.

Vertonghen hasn't played in the Premier League since Jan. 23 and Spurs have hummed along quite nicely in his absence; however, the return of the team's first choice center back would certainly be a boon to the team's fleeting title hopes. The Belgian international has seven clean sheets in 23 Premier League matches this season while the team has logged four in the nine matches he's missed.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vertonghen returned to training this week for Tottenham and may be available for selection this weekend.

Vertonghen hasn't played in a league match since Jan. 23 and would be a boost for the Spurs back line. However, even if he does return, a match at Anfield wouldn't be too favorable in terms of fantasy.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.
