Notes 
 If IKF is still catcher eligible in your league, I would certainly make him a target of mine. He should be hitting at the top of the Texas lineup and can mix in some power and base stealing. Even a 10/10 season would make him a super solid C1 option.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
Don't forget about Tom Murphy. He had a very good 2019 and while the advanced stats did not entirely back it up, it is the catcher position we are talking about. In 2C leagues he is going far too late for the upside he provides now that he is healthy.
