Who are the top 25 catchers for the upcoming 2021 Fantasy Baseball season? Look no further, Our Esquina has you covered.

With a little more than two weeks before Opening Day, fans are ramping up their research for the upcoming 2021 Fantasy Baseball season. Before then, Our Esquina will drop rankings by position and/or updates every day until the first pitch of the regular season is thrown.

Today, we’re going to rank the league’s top 25 catchers, one of the toughest positions to assess for any Fantasy Baseball league. Some teams may even opt to go without a catcher in exchange for an extra pitcher.

For those who choose to roster a player at this position, look no further. We have you all covered.

Before we begin, understand that these rankings are for head-to-head (H2H) leagues. Determinations were made by aggregating all projection stats, which can be found on FanGraphs.

On the Cusp

A few more catchers you should probably consider are Willians Astudillo. The Tortuga has become something of a fan-favorite since making his MLB debut in 2018. Unfortunately, he happens to play for a team that is loaded with young players at the same position. Because of this, we left him off of Our Esquina‘s rankings.

New York Yankees lifer Kyle Higashioka is another solid option behind the plate. Late last season and into the Postseason, Higgy replaced Gary Sanchez and shined. In fact, against the Tampa Bay Rays in the 2020 ALDS, he hit .308 with an impressive .896 OPS. Unfortunately for Higashioka, Sanchez looks primed for a monster season in 2021 and it is increasingly looking like Robinson Chirinos will be his backup, leaving Higgy in the lurch.
