Fantasy Baseball 2012 Early Position Rankings: Catcher

Starting today, Ray, Jason, and I will be releasing our early fantasy baseball ranks for 2012.  We will release an initial list for each position, then return the following day with brief profiles of each player ranked.  You can see a rough schedule here.

It's important to note that these are preliminary lists.  If our lists are the same on March 1 as they are today, we aren't doing our job.  Our opinions will change based on analysis we do, arguments you make, and real-world developments that obviously can't be foreseen at this point in time.

That said, let's jump into the catcher ranks.  The position was very deep last year, and it will continue to be so, though in my mind there's a pretty sharp decline right around the #10 spot.  I'll be back tomorrow with some deeper thoughts on the catcher landscape.  Until then, I await your criticism and comments on the initial list (praise is welcome, too!).
