Notes 
 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
You can't really buy what he did last year, but he volumed himself into being a startable catcher.
Michael Waterloo - 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.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Vasquez is being drafted as the ninth catcher off the board this season but finished 2019 as the #4 catcher in fantasy with 23 homers and a solid .276 average. Playing in Boston's treacherous lineup certainly dosn't hurt either. His upside isn't as sexy but this is a good bat well worth using as a top 12 catcher.
