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.

April 10, 2016

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.

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

December 19, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.
