Notes 
 How why are you willing to take a guy who batted .186 last season? Turns out the answer is pretty high for Sanchez, who's challenging J.T. Realmuto as the top catcher off the board. He did, after all, hit .284/.354/.568 in 754 prior MLB plate appearances. A groin injury also hampered his production, and he additionally underwent offseason shoulder surgery. He struggled mightily against breaking balls, but actually deposited more walks without significant contact declines. The average could easily rise back to .250 with around 30 long balls, but is that enough to justify an investment around pick 60? Catcher is worse than usual, but that's still too steep in one-catcher formats.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Ramos missed most of 2017 and struggled while he was healthy, but that seems to be the outlier, as he was tremendous in both 2016 and 2018, batting over .300 both seasons with plenty of power. Ramos is one of the safest fantasy catchers and may have as much upside as anyone besides Sanchez and Realmuto.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Sanchez flashed his sky-high fantasy upside in 2017, when he hit .278 with 33 HRs and 90 RBIs -- truly difference-making numbers at fantasy baseball's weakest position. But he displayed his risky floor in 2018, as he hit just .186 and played in only 89 games due to nagging groin and shoulder injuries. Sanchez is due for a good bit of positive batting average regression following last year's anemic .197 BABIP, and there is little doubt he can again top 30 home runs if he remains healthy. He is certainly a risk/reward option, but he's easily a top-two fantasy catcher heading into 2019 and could be a decent value in drafts coming off a down year.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
Ramos played just 111 games last year due to a hamstring injury, but when he was on the field he was just about as good as he was in his breakout 2016 season in Washington. He isn't likely to hit .306 again, but he's proven he has more batting average upside than most catchers, and he should be able to reach 20 home runs if he can avoid any lengthy DL stints. His new home of Citi Field is not a great place to hit, but that shouldn't prevent Ramos from being a rock-solid starting catcher in fantasy leagues.
Andrew Seifter - FantasyPros
 There is no getting past the fact that Sanchez was a train wreck last season., batting .186 with only 18 homers. With that said, he is still just 26 years old and we are talking about the fastest player to ever reach 50 homers in the MLB. Chance are high that he will bounce back in the batting average department, and if he can stay healthy, bank on 25 to 40 homers making him well worth a 7th or 8th round pick.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Since undergoing Lasik surgery before the 2016 season, Ramos has registered a .298/.343/.483 slash line with 20 homers per 500 plate appearances. Yet 2016 ended with a torn ACL, and a hamstring injury interrupted last year's All-Star campaign. After moving to the Mets, the 31-year-old can no longer DH, and a 54.9% ground-ball rate tempers his power upside. Despite all of these warts, he's a catcher with a good bat. He's a top-five option, just not one to lunge for before Salvador Perez or Yasmani Grandal.
