Top 30 Catcher Rankings for 2016

Ray updates his top 30 catchers for 2016, and after the first 10, the position gets pretty thin.

Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

The fantasy baseball writers here at Fake Teams will begin our annual Consensus Position Rankings later this month, and I will let you know the schedule once it is finalized, but until then, here are my updated catcher rankings for 2016.

I will be updating my position rankings all week beginning with catcher today, first base tomorrow, and so on. In addition to my rankings, I will be offering mixed league auction values in the "$ Value" column. You may see that some players have auction values higher than the values of players ranked ahead of them. This is the case, as some players will have more "helium" heading into drafts than others, and that helium may push their draft day auction value higher than one would expect.

Keep in mind, that every league is different, so the auction values below may not make sense for your particular league. I am using a 12 team, mixed league as my basis for the values. Those of you in keeper leagues may see the auction values of certain players be higher or lower than what is presented below. These should only be used as a baseline for your auctions.

Feel free to ask questions about the rankings or the auction values in the comments below.
