Catchers to Stream for Week 25 (9/18-9/24)

Welcome back to the penultimate 2017 Catchers to Stream article! It’s either semifinal or championship week for most everyone and at this point, I’m not excited by low-floor options. For the most part, if a guy is not listed below, he’s either above my 50%-owned barrier, or his floor is just way too low to […]

Catchers to Stream for Week 24 (9/11-9/17)

Hopefully most of you still have something to play for this week. Everything becomes far more important at this point in the year, so if you have a guy who is struggling, don’t feel bad about cutting him loose for one of the high upside plays below. Sometimes, those aggressive moves are what win you […]

Catchers to Stream for Week 23 (9/4 – 9/10)

Well hello everyone. For most all of you, this week marks the beginning of the fantasy baseball playoffs. It’s been a long, arduous road to get here, and if you’re still playing for something, give yourself a pat on the back. Ok, now enough with that, it’s time to get serious. This past week marked […]

Catchers to Stream for Week 22 (8/28- 9/3)

Catcher has been a desperate wasteland all season, which has many of you wondering if there’s a savior waiting in the minors for a September call-up. Some are hoping it’s Minnesota’s Mitch Garver. I caught a lot of heat for not including him last week, but I have trouble endorsing a 26-year old rookie, who […]

If you haven’t already, add Wilson Ramos. I’m totally gonna take credit for recommending him as a desperation play last week, even though I didn’t expect this. He is finally emerging as the prince who was promised. He made a change in his swing that is producing serious results so far. You might’ve given up […]

Catchers To Stream For Week 20 (8/14- 8/20)

The talk of the town this week among catchers is Alex Avila. With Wilson Contreras out for the foreseeable future, Avila is drawing most of the starts for the North Siders. He’s hitting .269 with 13 HRs and 36 RBIs and now, with all of the starts he’s drawing, this sounds like an automatic add […]

We have a new addition to the list this week in the form of Drew Butera, who will replace Salvador Perez for the next four weeks while the latter heals from an intercostal strain. This has some wondering if Butera is worth a pickup. The closest the 33 year-old has ever come to a full […]
