RotoWire News: Realmuto is expected to see some action at first base in 2017, The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. (2/13/2017)

Profile: Unless you believe that Gary Sanchez will continue to hit home runs at the torrid pace he did over the second half of 2016, it’s difficult to make much of a fantasy impact at catcher.  But J.T. Realmuto provides one thing that pretty much no one else at his position can boast: stolen bases.  With 12 steals in 2016, Realmuto doubled the closest catchers to him.  His .303 batting average was likely inflated by upward of 40 points by an unsustainable .357 batting average on balls in play, but even .260 with double digit home runs and steals makes Realmuto one of the best fantasy options at a thin position.  Moreover, Realmuto is still young at 25 years old and has proven himself one of the most durable players at his position with 263 games played over the last two seasons.  Sanchez and Willson Contreras have disrupted the status quo at the position, but Realmuto’s consistency and rare speed should keep him in the top five at the position.  He may not make the statistical impact Buster Posey does that earns him a spot in the overall top 100, but Realmuto is one of the very few options at the position that you can draft and not worry about your production at the position.  (Scott Spratt)

The Quick Opinion: J.T. Realmuto does not produce gaudy statistics, but his combination of a solid batting average, moderate power, and surprising speed make him one of the best fantasy options at catcher.
