Fantasy Baseball Catcher Sleepers: Breakout, undervalued backstops to target in 2020 drafts

  Fantasy Baseball Catcher Sleepers: Breakout, undervalued backstops to target in 2020 drafts If you don't get one of the top five or six catchers in your 2020 fantasy baseball draft, chances are you'll be looking for a sleeper backstop in the late rounds. We highlight five breakout candidates to circle on your cheat sheets.The five backstops highlighted below are far from sure things, but there are reasons to consider all of them at various points in your draft. It's unlikely you'll get much in the way of average from most of them -- and you certainly aren't going to get any steals -- but most of these guys can either hit homers or get on base (or both), and that's all it takes to have value at fantasy's thinnest position.

Fantasy Baseball Points League Strategy Tips, Advice

  Fantasy Baseball Points League Strategy Tips, Advice Fantasy Alarm's Dan Malin gets you ready for 2020 fantasy baseball points league draft with some tips and strategy advice.I prefer points leagues because, in my experience, owners are less likely to check out. That’s not to say owners never check out in points leagues, but if someone has a big lead in Roto points at the All-Star break, it can be discouraging. In a points league, it’s a head-to-head format, and similar to fantasy football, you're trying to run up the score on your opponent. Even more important, things can swing in a hurry.

Is it over before it began? With the Miami Marlins facing an outbreak of COVID-19 within their clubhouse and sitting on the sidelines until next Monday, Scott and Joe discuss where baseball went wrong and where MLB's risk tolerance to play a season lies. (01:23)

Craig Kimbrel's recent shakiness in the closer role and the widespread use of closers-by-committee makes us wonder, have we passed peak save? With starters pitching fewer innings, and shutdown relievers like Josh Hader going multiple innings, shapeless pitching staffs might be here to stay. (11:26)

Scott and Joe take a look at some teams that have jumped out to start the season, like the Braves, Twins and Dodgers. (25:20)

Fantasy Baseball draft season continues and Scott Pianowski is joined this week by Rotoworld's D.J. Short to talk about a conundrum many fantasy owners are facing in the first round of their drafts: should Jacob DeGrom or Gerrit Cole be the first starting pitcher off the board?

But I know that many fantasy managers will opt to be patient with someone they drafted in the first or second round. Although the Blue Jays would likely go to a closer committee in his absence, my best guess on a potential His surgical team may have cleared him to return to full football activity, but
