Notes 
 Look, we get it. No one really wants to draft a catcher. And for those of you in two-catcher leagues (first off, stop), no one wants to draft two catchers. But if you decide that you want to have an advantage at the position, it makes sense to take J.T. Realmuto here because of the overall production he'll bring and the added volume of games he'll play in his second season in Philadelphia. If there are no other players you like on the board and you feel like you can get adequate value at the other positions later, go ahead and click the draft button.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
PĂ©rez is a great value on draft day for a catcher who plays nearly every day. Expect Mike Matheny to curb his playing time a tad since he missed all of last year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Realmuto didn't quite live up to the lofty expectations last year but still managed to finish as the top catcher in fantasy baseball. He is a near-lock to again lead the position in steals and runs while providing 20+ homers, 75+ RBI and a solid batting average. His ceiling might not be as high as Gary Sanchez, but you know you are drafting a sure-fire top 100 player with Realmuto.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Perez missed the entire season but is still just 30 years old and let's not forget that he was an all-star for six consecutive seasons. There is no more consistent source of power at the position but his BA has dipped into danger territory two times in three seasons. Perez ends the top teir of reliable catchers.
