Early 2011 rankings- Catchers

Posted: January 6, 2011 in Fantasy Baseball

This is, by far, the thinnest fantasy position. The top few options are often overpriced, and the next bunch is all pretty much the same. Treat catchers much as you do tight ends in football. If you don’t have one of the studs, get what you can and always keep an eye on the waiver wire for possible upgrades.

1. Joe Mauer
2. Brian McCann
3. Buster Posey
4. Victor Martinez
5. Carlos Santana
6. Kurt Suzuki
7. Giovanni Soto
8. Matt Weiters
9. Miguel Montero
10. Mike Napoli
11. Chris Iannetta
12. Jorge Posada
13. Carlos Ruiz
14. Yadier Molina
15. JP Arencibia
16. Jesus Montero
17. Miguel Olivo
18. Ryan Doumit
19. John Jaso
20. AJ Pierzynski

There are a lot of starting jobs still open, so its hard to tell who will emerge as fantasy relevant but after the top five, I wouldn’t be too loyal to any of them.
