Gomes has quickly become one of the league's best offensive catchers -- he's not shabby with the glove, either. The big game lifts his season slash to .285/.324/.476 with 17 home runs and 54 RBI in 111 games. His allergy to walks is the only downside to his overall game, which really only matters to those of us in OBP formats. He's a Top 5-7 catcher in 5 x 5 formats headed into 2015.Analyst: Spencer Silva
