Willson Contreras Season Preview

by Jamie Mellor | Cubs Correspondent | Sun, Mar 8th 3:57am EDT

Willson Contreras heard his name mentioned in trade rumors in the offseason but nothing materialized so he is back as the starting catcher for the Cubs. He is a weapon against the running game with his strong, accurate arm along with his ability to catch runners who are not paying attention by snapping a throw off behind them.

Fantasy Impact:

Contreras is a top-5 fantasy catcher and should be owned in all leagues. He also has a solid chance to bat in a favorable place in a strong batting order either as the 5th or 6th spot.
