2017 FANTASY BASEBALL STATUS REPORT: GET FAMILIAR AGAIN WITH WILSON RAMOS

It has been another absolute collective abomination from the catching community once again in 2017 fantasy baseball; with the year being so bad from this bunch that retread Alex Avila us unbelievably the most productive backstop on a per game basis despite barely hanging on with the Detroit Tigers at the beginning of the season.  That is what makes the imminent return of Tampa Bay Rays catcher Wilson Ramos so intriguing as he finished up his second rehab assignment game on Tuesday by going 1-for-4.  Ramos is making his way back from an ACL and meniscus tear in his knee that required surgery this past October but from the beginning of the season I spoke about the sleeper value he carried given the extremely depressed draft cost and continued lack of options at catcher in fantasy baseball.  Remember that Ramos had a career-year in 2016 prior to the knee going bad; hitting 307 with 22 home runs and 80 RBI for the Washington Nationals which turned out to be one of the very best offensive season from a catcher that year.  With decent pop and the ability to hit for average, Ramos is an excellent pickup in all formats.  In addition, Ramos will likely man the DH spot on a near-daily basis which adds to his counting stats and thus his total value.  So do yourself a favor and take Ramos out for another spin.  At the age of 29. he still has some good years left.  Also you can't do any worse than what you have given what the position has "produced" this season.
