Notes 
 It was a nice bounceback season from Sanchez, but you have to wonder how many games he'll miss behind the plate with his below-average defense.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Smith could be a Top 5 catcher in 2021 if he can tap into the production that he had in the minors. The March reports of him being in a timeshare are slightly concerning.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Yes, Sanchez did manage to swat 34 homers and has historical power potential for the position, but you are definitely going to take a hit at batting average if you draft him. With that said, hitting in the middle of the Yankees lineup should afford fantasy owners loads of RBIs and runs too.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Smith was among the biggest surprises last season, knocking 15 homers and 42 RBIs in just 170 at-bats. That's a full-season pace of 40 homers and a 120 RBIs. Granted, that won't happen, but the upside is clearly there for a special season. You'll have to decide if the hefty ADP is worth the risk.
