 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
After batting .323 across three minor league levels in 2017, Jansen hit .275 with 12 homers and five steals through 88 games in AAA in 2018 before earning an August call-up to the Blue Jays. He hit .247 with three homers over 31 games in Toronto, and it's reasonable to expect him to maintain a similar pace over his first full Big League season with the potential for more. Given the sorry state of the catcher position, it could make sense to take a chance on Jansen's unknown upside once the seven or eight surefire starters at the position are off the board.
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
While far from a sure thing, Jansen is easily the best option for drafters who miss out on the top-eight catchers. He held his own (.247/.347/.432) during 31 late games with the Blue Jays after posting a 146 wRC+ with only five more strikeouts (49) than walks in Triple-A. He even stole five bases before his big league promotion, and simply repeating that tally would represent a major boost at the bleak position. He has the plate approach to hit for a higher average with decent power, and the Blue Jays should give him the neophyte regular reps after shipping Russell Martin back to the Dodgers. The only concern is a lack of catching depth forcing drafters to reach for Jansen once the likes of Willson Contreras, Buster Posey, and Yadier Molina fall off the board.
Andrew Gould - 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.
Andrew Gould - FantasyPros
Now that Martin was dealt to the Dodgers, Jansen is the favorite to start at catcher for the Blue Jays. He doesn't have much power, but his average will be quality and he should play enough that the RBIs and runs will make him a fringe top 12 fantasy catcher.
