Notes 
 Maybe someone can try to hit the ball in the air too much. That's what happened with Hoskins last year. This is really his last chance to become a breakout star that we all had hoped. Added value in OBP leagues.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
With just 60 games being played this year, you want a lot of volume. Besides J.T. Realmuto, there's no catcher who will give you the volume that Grandal will this year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Hoskins' BA luck caught up to him and that BA dipped to .226. His power remained about the same rather than jumping to a new level like many seemed to be anticipating. He does still have upside for more but the floor, as we've seen, is a non-top 25 first basemen.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
In terms of overall game, Grandal may be the best catcher in all of baseball, as his OBP will hover just south of .400 and he plays excellent defense but the BA will be closer to that .240 mark and his HRs, RBIs and runs should dip in the ballpark and lineup moves from MIL to CWS.
