There has likely never been a time in fantasy baseball when there were more than a handful of catchers worthy of grabbing before the middle rounds of your draft.
This year is no exception.
The biggest problem catchers face in fantasy baseball is that, well, fantasy baseball pays absolutely no attention to defense. It is simply almost impossible to put up eye-opening fantasy numbers when you are going to miss 20-40 games every season.
It is just a fact of life that catchers are more valuable in reality baseball than they are in fantasy baseball. But this season is a bit different in that there seems to be about two handfuls of catchers who can actually make a difference in your fantasy season if you get one of them.
And you better get one of them.
Just three of our Top 12 catchers are already at least 30-years-old. One sounds like an aging rock star. Two are named Montero, two sound like they should be characters on Pee-wee's Playhouse (A.J. and Buster) just one, oddly enough, is a Molina and none is a Yankee or Red Sox.
