2017 Top Fantasy Catchers

Is the potential combined with the relative small sample size of Gary Sanchez enough to rank him ahead of the consistent Lucroy? I’m gonna say yes, by just a little bit … Remember that Willson Contreras has C/OF eligibility … I was all over Yasmani Grandal last season, but it’s likely that his BA will stay low and his power will drop off a bit … J.T. Realmuto stole 12 bases last season. Derek Norris (nine) was the only other catcher to swipe more than six … Based on early ADP and analyst rankings, most people think Sandy Leon’s breakout 2016 was a fluke, and I agree … It’s easy to tab a Rockies’ hitter as a late-round sleeper, but if Tom Murphy gets regular playing time, he’ll probably hit 20 homers.
