2018 FANTASY BASEBALL CATCHER RANKINGS

As always when it comes to the catcher position, the best course of action is to wait to grab your starter if possible outside of only Yankees backstop Gary Sanchez due to his extreme power.  Be sure to key in on prospects on the verge of promotion like Francisco Mejia,  while also checking in on veterans who are annually underrated such as a Welington Castillo and Wilson Ramos.

1.  Gary Sanchez
2.  Buster Posey
3.  Salvador Perez
4.  Wilson Contreras
5.  J.T. Realmuto
6.  Yadier Molina
7.  Wilson Ramos
8.  Welington Castillo
9.  Jonathan Lucroy
10. Francisco Mejia
11. Travis D'Arnaud
12. Mike Zunino
13. Yasmani Grandal
14. Brian McCann
15. Manny Pina
16. Evan Gattis
17. Austin Hedges
18. Tyler Flowers
19. Matt Wieters
20. Christian Yasquez
21. Russell Martin
22. Austin Barnes
23. Devin Mesoraco
24. Francisco Cervelli
25. Robinson Chirinos
26. Alex Avila
27. Yan Gomes
28. Chris Iannetta
29. James McCann
30. Jason Castro
31. Tom Murphy
32. Cameron Rupp
33. Stephen Vogt
34. Nick Hundley

****As I said earlier, I would make an early round exception on Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez in terms of using a high pick on a catcher.  The guy's power is immense and he brings almost a Mike Piazza element to the position.
-Barring Sanchez, I will be fully in on veterans who are annually underrated like Welington Castillo, Wilson Ramos, and even now Yadier Molina.  All three would do just fine for you as you stock up elsewhere. 
-Francisco Mejia is the real deal and his stick is incredibly smooth with developing power as well. 
-Keep a late round pick handy for Austin Hedges and Austin Barnes.  Hedges already has shown the power and the average should tick up this year with more development.  Meanwhile, Barnes has infield eligibility and also a decent bat.
