Profile: Lucroy seems to have fixed whatever was wrong with his swing last year. His fly ball rate peaked after bottoming out in 2015, propelling him to his first 20-homer season (and then some). He continued hitting with authority; his hard hit rate ranks third among catchers since 2012, better than Evan Gattis, Yasmani Grandal, Brian McCann, Carlos Santana, and basically every active catcher (or former catcher) known for power. It's just that Lucroy is more of a gap hitter whose all-fields approach befits a lofted batting average on balls in play (BABIP) at the expense of power. Last year was different, obviously. It coincided with career-high strikeout and pop-up rates — he hit almost as many bloopers last year as he did in all of 2012-15 combined — so it seems like he deliberately sold out for power. Heading into 2017, the worst-case scenario for Lucroy would see his power regressing but the strikeouts sticking around - a repeat of his 2015 season, essentially, minus the DL stint. That version of Lucroy was still above average, though, albeit barely, so an investment in Lucroy is an investment in a solid floor with excellent upside. There's a new sheriff of backstops in town — he's young, he's a Yankee, and he's related to the prodigious Pablo Sanchez, no doubt — but there's virtually no justifying a decision to draft Lucroy outside the top-3 at the position. (Alex Chamberlain)

The Quick Opinion: The 2016 season showed us a different but equally productive side of Lucroy, who loaded up on both home runs and strikeouts en route to becoming fantasy baseball's best catcher. Whether he hits .300 with a dozen homers or .270 with two dozen homers, Lucroy figures again to be one of baseball's elite backstops.
