Notes 
 With just 60 games being played this year, you want a lot of volume. Besides J.T. Realmuto, there's no catcher who will give you the volume that Grandal will this year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Death. Taxes. Edwin EncarnaciĆ³n hitting bombs. Great landing spot in Chi-town for him.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 In terms of overall game, Grandal may be the best catcher in all of baseball, as his OBP will hover just south of .400 and he plays excellent defense but the BA will be closer to that .240 mark and his HRs, RBIs and runs should dip in the ballpark and lineup moves from MIL to CWS.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Encarnacion is most certainly getting up there in age but his power persists as he knocked 30+ homers again for the eighth straight season. As we all know, the batting average won't be great but we can put up with that for 100+ RBIs and 80+ runs to go with the power.
