2019 Fantasy Outlook
Verrett joined the 49ers after an Achilles injury forced the Chargers to part ways with their talented corner. The 28-year-old is considered a plus defender in coverage, so he could form quite the tandem with Richard Sherman (who dealt with an Achilles injury of his own two years ago) if both vets can stay on the field.

Coach's Decision
September 15, 2019
Verrett (coach's decision) is listed as inactive for Sunday's contest against Cincinnati.
Verrett was battling an ankle injury earlier in the week, but his absence from Week 2 is reportedly not related to injury. The 2014 first-round pick was unable to play in Week 1, and in his stead, it will be Ahkello Witherspoon who gets the start at one of the cornerback positions.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Verrett has lost a bit of luster after ACL issues limited him to five games overtthe last two seasons, but prior to 2016, the TCU product was considered one of the best young cornerbacks in the league. Unfortunately, the 27-year-old is on track for another lost season after tearing his Achilles during a conditioning test before training camp.
Verrett missed most of the 2016 season after partially tearing his ACL four games into the new campaign. Now healthy, Verrett figures to continue his reign as one of the most unappreciated young cornerbacks in the league. While he'll have to jockey for the No. 1 role with 2016 breakout star Casey Hayward, together the two figure to make up one of the more devastating secondaries in the NFL.
A 2014 first-round pick and one of the league's best young cornerbacks, Verrett led the Chargers in interceptions (three) and passes defended (12) in 2015, when he also racked up 47 tackles. Now that Eric Weddle has moved on, Verrett is expected to take over more of a leadership role in the secondary and is the clear-cut No. 1 starting cornerback on the Chargers.
Verrett is entering his second season with huge expectations. He had 19 tackles and one game-saving interception in the six games he played as a rookie, and he already has a starting spot opposite Brandon Flowers locked up heading into 2015.
Verrett was drafted to be an impact corner and is expected to get a lot of playing time as a rookie, but the signing of Brandon Flowers means that the Chargers have the luxury of developing Verrett slowly if they desire.
