2011 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: The Top 15 Catchers

To paraphrase, only two catchers in the past decade (Javy Lopez in 2003, Joe Mauer in 2009) have finished inside the top-50 overall according to Baseball Monster rankings. In five seasons since 2001, one or zero backstops have finished in the top-100 overall. So why do we continue to draft catchers so high?

2011 Fantasy Projections, No. 43: Is Atlanta Braves’ Brian McCann Finally Free of Eye Injury?

Question: Who’s the only catcher to have hit 20-plus HRs in each of the last three seasons? Answer: Brian McCann. The scariest part? McCann is entering his age-27 season and will bat in a lineup featuring Martin Prado, Jason Heyward, Chipper Jones and newly-acquired Dan Uggla. The downside?
