Ranking The Top 5 DFS Catchers Of 2020

J.T. Realmuto – Philadelphia Phillies

One of the best real life catchers tops this list. J.T. Realmuto was terrific in his first season with the Philadelphia Phillies, racking up the most hits (148), runs (92), RBI (83), and stolen bases (nine). He added 25 long-balls and appeared in 145 games. That’s incredible production and consistency in playing time. On top of being a reliable DFS star at this position, managers won’t have to double or triple-check whether or not he’s in the lineup. A jack of all trades, Realmuto is the real deal.

Mitch Garver – Minnesota Twins

This backstop is being slept on because he played in just 93 games in 2019. Mitch Garver is about as good as it gets. He clobbered 31 homers over just 311 at-bats. He led all catchers with an insane .995 OPS and also tallied the best ISO (.357). Oh, and he hits in one of the most productive offenses in baseball that added Josh Donaldson in the offseason.

Gary Sanchez – New York Yankees

The batting average has been atrocious, but the power is for real. Gary Sanchez managed to mash 34 homers and 77 RBI over just 106 games in 2019. Despite missing some time, Sanchez still led catchers in round-trippers. His .293 ISO ranked third-best last season, but his BABIP was incredibly low (.244). New York’s tiny ballpark suits his power style, but don’t expect a ton of hits, as Yankee Stadium doesn’t allow for many dinks and dunks.

Yasmani Grandal – Milwaukee Brewers

Averaging 25 homers over the past four seasons, Yasmani Grandal has to make this list. The Milwaukee Brewers backstop posted career-highs in long-balls (28), RBI (77), and runs (79) in his first season with the club. He’s so great behind the dish that Milwaukee ran him out for 153 games. Now with the Chicago White Socks those fans are hoping Grandal is able to move a few MLB spreads for more than a handful of games this year, and just like Realmuto, you won’t have to double-check your lineups when spending on Grandal.

Will Smith – Los Angeles Dodgers

The 25-year-old former first-round MLB pick showed his potential over 54 games in 2019. In just 170 at-bats, Will Smith ripped 15 homers and drove in 42. He finished second in OPS (.907) and ISO (.318) behind Garver and hits in a loaded lineup that just added Mookie Betts. Willson Contreras and Salvador Perez fans are groaning, but Smith will be a household name soon enough. Jump on his cheaper price tags early on.
