Chicago Cubs catcher Willson Contreras will rest on Wednesday versus the San Diego Padres. Contreras continues to be one of the best catchers in the game and is hitting .245 with ten home runs, 25 RBI and three stolen bases. With the Cubs going from a night game to a day game, backup catcher P.J. Higgins will be behind the plate. Higgins will bat eighth versus Yu Darvish and should be avoided in DFS on Wednesday.
Chicago Cubs catcher Willson Contreras continued his strong season by going 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's victory versus the San Diego Padres. The home run would be his tenth of the season. Contreras entered the year as a top catcher and he hasn't disappointed. The two-time All-Star is now hitting .245 with 10 home runs and 25 RBI. He will look to keep it going against former teammate Yu Darvish on Wednesday.
Chicago Cubs catcher Willson Contreras will receive a day off on Wednesday versus the San Diego Padres. Contreras is hitting .248 with nine home runs, 24 RBI and three stolen bases on the year and remains one of the best offensive catchers in the game. It's just a routine day off for Contreras and he will be replaced by backup catcher P.J. Higgins. Higgins will bat eighth and is a risky DFS play versus Dinelson Lamet. Contreras should be back in the lineup on Thursday versus the San Francisco Giants.
A .243 batting average with .164 isolated power is not a good season. That was the line Contreras produced in 2020. It was a disappointing dip in his career path. And yet, those 57 games did nothing to drop him out of the top five at his position in fantasy. There was pretty much nothing he could have done to drop that far. So here Contreras remains thanks to the two sweetest words in the English language: de-fault. Contreras' 2020 did have many positives that make him actually deserving of that ranking though. He set career-highs with a 47.8 hard-hit percentage, 35.8 sweet-spot percentage, 9.1 launch angle, 89.8 exit velocity, and 29.1 line-drive rate. It was a display of quality contact for sure. That strong contact is great, but thanks to a career-worst K% and a 15.9% HR/FB rate, he didn't produce enough. From here, the next step is setting another career-high in launch angle to give his balls a better chance of becoming home runs. It won't take much more than that to be the best non-Realmuto catcher in fantasy, and he could be had 100 spots after J.T. in drafts.
