Notes 
 Buster has been the model of consistency over the years, and should be in the hunt for the NL batting title once again, but that lousy Giants' offense won't warrant many RBIs or runs, plus Posey's power has dipped substantially in the last few seasons.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 
 From a fantasy standpoint, Posey had perhaps the worst full season of his career last year, hitting just 12 home runs and knocking in just 67 RBI, though he still finished as the third-best catcher in fantasy baseball. But his dip in performance was largely based on his lack of supporting cast, as he had the second-highest batting average and on-base percentage of his career. That supporting cast should look much better this year with Andrew McCutchen and Evan Longoria on board. Posey will be just 31 years old on Opening Day, and should still have another year or two before the inevitable "catcher decline." Though he may have been surpassed by Gary Sanchez, he's still an easy second choice at the position.
