Willson Contreras agrees to one-year, $6.65 million deal with the Cubs

Willson Contreras agreed to a one-year, $6.65 million deal with the Cubs to avoid arbitration.

Fantasy Impact

Contreras' name has come up in trade discussions as the Cubs have been shedding payroll this offseason. He's a name worth keeping an eye on in the coming weeks, especially for teams that miss out on the J.T. Realmuto sweepstakes.

Willson Contreras being 'extensively shopped' by Cubs

Catcher Wilson Contreras is being "extensively" shopped by the Cubs, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today. The 28-year-old is set to earn at least $5 million in arbitration.

Fantasy Impact

After dealing star pitcher Yu Darvish, the Cubs don't appear to be done with their offseason moves. Contreras is still under team control for two more seasons and is a solid option for any team that misses out on the J.T. Realmuto sweepstakes.

Willson Contreras went 1-for-3 with a double in Wednesday's 5-1 Game 1 loss to the Marlins.

Fantasy Impact

Willson Contreras scores a run Saturday versus the White Sox

Willson Contreras reached base in the third inning Saturday and came around to score on Kris Bryant's grand slam. Contreras continues a strong September.

Fantasy Impact

Contreras's numbers are down due to an awful August that was sandwiched between a good July and September. He should be among the first catchers drafted in 2021 fantasy drafts.

Willson Contreras with two HR Friday versus the White Sox

Willson Contreras had a huge day Friday versus the White Sox. He bashed two HR, scored three runs, and drove in four. Contreras was also hit for the league-high 14th time. He now has seven HR this season.

Fantasy Impact

Contreras is a top-5 catcher and still young enough for longer-term leagues. He should be one of the first catchers off the board in 2021 drafts.
