Catcher and the three infield positions are often the most difficult to find good players on your fantasy teams, because the talent pool is so shallow. If you don’t grab a stud at those positions early in your draft, you may get stuck with a revolving door of middling players all season long.
It’s hard to preach patience with an unproven Fantasy asset. That was the case with Brad Miller after his early struggles. Miller had a nice rookie year, which led to many buying into the hype for his second season. When things didn’t pan out, most owners cut bait, deciding to ride the hot hand.
