Notes 
 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
Zunino killed his fantasy teams in batting average last year, but he was up at .251 the year before so you'd have to think he will settle somewhere in between this year. When it comes with 20 homers and 50 RBIs at the catcher position, the batting average is much easier to swallow.
Bobby Sylvester - 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
Zunino is one of the better sources of power at the catcher position, but with a .207 lifetime average and enormous 34.2 percent career strikeout rate, he is a major liability in the batting average department. As a result, he's finished as a top-14 fantasy catcher just once -- in 2017, when he rode a completely unsustainable .355 BABIP to a .251 batting average. He's simply too big of a batting average drain to be an appealing starting option in 12-team leagues.
Andrew Seifter - 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.
