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
Don't count on the home run production to repeat. Gurriel is a nice mid-round average source, but he may just be empty average and that's it.
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
Gurriel was unbelievable last season going from 13 homers and 85 RBIs to 31 and 104. Even with the power spike, he maintained his .290 BA for the third straight season. Although he is older, it is clear that fantasy owners can still rely on him for plenty of production.
