Notes 
  There isn't a lot of positive things to say about Sanchez other than that this is easily the cheapest he has ever been as a fantasy baseball player. He hit 34 homers back in 2019, which is an achievement perhaps no other catcher can be expected to match this year. He's going late enough in drafts that there isn't much downside to taking him. I'd rather risk it with Sanchez (and play the waiver wire if he doesn't work out) than draft one of the first few backstops where the opportunity cost for other positions is much higher.
