Drafting: Catchers

Postby VinWins » Fri Oct 07, 2011 11:30 am

Grey went over the top 20 catchers recently,

http://razzball.com/top-20-catchers-2011-fantasy-baseball/

so I figured I'd take a look at where they were drafted in the RCL. Listed is any catcher who was ranked preseason or was drafted in at least 1 league.

The columns show Grey's preseason ranking, # of leagues they were drafted in, the average draft position of those selected in all 38 leagues, and the earliest and latest the catcher was selected (ND = Not Drafted).

Very interesting... Can you easily pull which teams had the most catchers that they went through? If it's not easy, don't kill yourself...

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Not too tough. 8, 9 hours maybe.

Well...not surprisingly...this confirms that drafting catchers early is almost always a waste (as I learned this year by drafting %!*?&¿ Mauer for my RCL team). Only 7 guys from the top 20 were drafted in every league (plus Suzuki, who was drafted in all but 1). Meanwhile, 3 guys who were drafted in every league didn't even make the top 20 (including %!*?&¿ Mauer). 5 guys in the top 20 were not drafted in ANY leagues, including the #3 overall Avilla. 5 other top 20 guys were drafted in 6 leagues or less.

This was the year I actually went and drafted decent catchers in every league I played in. %!*?&¿ Mauer, Wieters, McCan and Santana was a 25th round keeper (which obviously did actually work out).

I will never draft a catcher before the last 2 rounds again.
