In a league where several teams support a catcher-by-committee, Vogt is the most widely available catcher with the best chance to play on a regular basis. He's averaged 135+ games played the past two season with the A's. If you look elsewhere, catcher platoons will make setting your lineups a challenge.
Vogt is hitting .258 this season, but his BABIP is 20 points below career norms. For those waiting out Gary Sanchez's injury, Vogt is a good bet.

First Base - Ryan Zimmerman
It turns out when not on the disabled list (he hasn't played in more than 115 MLB games in a season since 2013), Zimmerman can still produce fantasy relevant results. Through nine games, Zimm has banged out three homers with six RBI, six runs and, if you can believe it, a stolen base. As is often the case in early-April, the .476 BABIP will pull down Zimmerman's current .382 batting average. He's available in more than 60 percent of leagues on FOXSports.com.
Second Base - Starlin Castro
The cream of the second base crop is owned in most FOX Sports fantasy leagues, but if you're looking for a middle infielder upgrade, take a look at Castro. Still only 27 years old, Castro's early-season production has impressed despite only two extra base hit in 37 plate appearances. He's available in 64 percent of leagues.
Shortstop - Andrelton Simmons
You can see my most recent thoughts on top shortstops on the waiver wire as owners of Trea Turner and Jean Segura were sent scrambling earlier this week. The Angels' Simmons remains the safe play.

Third Base - Eugenio Suarez
Do you remember Suarez's hot start last April? You probably don't becasue he hit .173 in May and the honeymoon was over. Suarez banged five homers with 14 runs and 15 RBI with a .270 batting average last April.
Through two weeks this year, he's hitting .375 with two homers, seven runs and eight RBI with a stolen base. His 13 percent walk rate shows patience at the plate, too.

Outfield - Manuel Margot
You ever wonder if the Red Sox regret trading prospects for Craig Kimbrel? Margot was a big piece in that deal and after marinating in the minors, the 22-year-old outfielder is proving a wise investment. He's hitting .325 with three homers, eight runs, five RBI and 20-25 stolen base potential by season's end. He should be owned immediately.

Outfield - Eric Thames
The Eric Thames 2.0 project is off to a hot start as the former KBO slugger is hitting .360 with two homers, six runs and five RBI through his first eight games. The 31 percent strikeout rate comes with the territory.
Outfield - Aaron Judge
All spring training it was Gary Sanchez this and Greg Bird that. Now, it's "Have you seen Judge hit taters?" The Yankees prospect has hit three long balls with a 12 percent walk and 21 percent strikeout rates. You can find him on waivers in 67 percent of FOX fantasy leagues.
Starting Pitcher - Amir Garrett
Fantasy owners who missed out on the top tier starting pitchers on draft day will spin the waiver wire wheel throughout the season. I suggest they stop at Amir Garrett. The paint-by-number analysis of a 2-0 record and 1.42 ERA is good to know, but the K/9 rate south of 7.00 and 3.73 xFIP do show that things could be better. However, two other prospects are the only other two SP's on waivers I would consider: the A's Jharel Cotton and Yankees Luis Severino.
Prospect Watch - Reds call up Winker
It may be just a cup o' coffee debut and back down to Louisville, but Winker was raking at Triple-A. So, this may be a thank you present for the prospect. The 23 year old has great pop in his bat and will be the Reds long-term solution in left field.
Winker may be worth taking a look at in DFS weekend contests if the price is right.
