Fantasy Baseball 2013: Top 20 Catchers Before Spring Training

Reigning National League MVP Buster Posey (24 HR, 103 RBI, 78 Runs, .336 BA) has catcher and first-base eligibility this season.

The following countdown details my top 20 catchers heading into the 2013 fantasy season, with an emphasis on 5x5 roto leagues.

In nine years of playing fantasy baseball, spanning 70-plus leagues, I have never sprung for a catcher in the early rounds. After all, what's the point of surrendering a high pick on a temperamental talent, at a demanding position, when most mixed leagues call for only one starting catcher?

Of course, that rationale may require a tweak or two, since four of the top eight assets have dual-position eligibility (catcher/first base).

Notable omissions include Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Tyler Flowers, Kurt Suzuki, Yasmani Grandal, John Jaso, A.J. Ellis and Rob Brantly.

Enjoy the show!
