Notes 
 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
With power being downplayed this year in a sprint of a season, Cron becomes more and more attractive as a late-round play if you wait at first base.
Michael Waterloo - 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.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Cron had 30 homers in 2018 and followed it up with 25 last year despite just 125 games played. Should he see a full season of health, 35 or even 40 is a possibility but the cost is a medicore at best batting average.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
  Tremendous advanced statistics in 2019 shine a bright light on his 2020 outlook. Should play everyday in the heart of the Tigers lineup. Solid late round option.
