2017 FANTASY BASEBALL UPDATED RANKINGS: CATCHER

With the season a month old, let's dig on on the current catcher rankings as we update things.

1.  Buster Posey:  Posey is hitting well average-wise but with zero pop.
2.  Salvador Perez:  6 home runs already for Perez who continues to up the power as he gets older.
3.  Gary Sanchez:  Have to give Sanchez a mulligan so far due to the injury.
4.  J.T. Realmuto:  Proving to be the best pure hitter at catcher other then Posey and has a couple of homers.  2016 was legit.
5.  Jonathan Lucroy:  Lucroy and every other Texas hitter has struggled badly but a buy low is warranted.
6.  Brian McCann:  Old reliable.
7.  Matt Wieters:  Always a tremendous value play at catcher.  Hitting for power with the average so far.
8.  Evan Gattis
9.  Jett Bandy:  Could be a fluky good month of April but also maybe the start of a nice breakout.
10. Austin Hedges:  The strikeouts are crazy but Hedges is showing the power he put forth all of 2016 in the minors.
11. Yasmani Grandal
12. Kyle Schwarber:  Not too good here just yet.
13. Wilson Contreras
14. Yadier Molina
15. Travis D'Arnaud:  Once again has dealt with injuries but D'Arnaud already has more RBI in April then he did all of 2016.
16. Russell Martin
17. James McCann
18. Robinson Chirinos
19. Austin Romine
20. Francisco Cervelli

  1. At what point do I drop Contreras for someone like Bandy? Will Contreras come around? He sits a lot of games.

  2. You could. I own Bandy myself. Contreras should be fine as he has bug power at a shallow position.
