Bucs CB Alterraun Verner missed his 3rd straight day of practice Friday because of a hamstring injury. The team has designated him doubtful for Sunday's matchup with the Falcons. That's unfortunate for IDP owners, as Verner would have carried plenty of fantasy upside in the game. HC Lovie Smith mentioned Crezdon Butler and Brandon Dixon as potential replacements Friday, which means you can't count on either for fantasy purposes. Verner's absence can only help Falcons QB Matt Ryan's fantasy outlook in an already positive matchup.

The Buccaneers have signed former Titans CB Alterraun Verner for 4 years at $26.5 million, including $14 million guaranteed.  Verner went from contested starter last summer to Pro Bowl corner in Tennessee, snatching 5 INTs and leading the league with 27 total passes defensed.  A low tackle tally made for inconsistent fantasy production last year, but Verner could land in starter range come time for our 2014 IDP rankings.

Titans CB Alterraun Verner (groin) is questionable for Sunday's meeting with Arizona.  He finished the week as a full practice participant, though, and seems to be on track to play.
The Titans have named CB Alterraun Verner the starter on the right side for the 2nd straight season.  Tennessee tried to get youngster Tommie Campbell into that role this summer, but he tanked.  And no other corner on the roster managed to outperform Verner.  So he'll again play opposite Jason McCourty and carry IDP sleeper potential into the season -- especially considering his tenuous status probably kept him undrafted in nearly all fantasy football leagues.
