yes it has, except you know that an active manager is a competive manager. I only punt catcher for reasons stated above. I would rather have two decent closers and a few guys with speed because those are usually scoring catagories in every league.
and usually you have to be bad somewhere on your roster, and i like 2b and SS too much to miss out on those positions and catcher is usually always a dilured position for fantasy, so i go into my draft knowing even if a 4th tier catcher is still available in the 15th round, i'll be passing him up for a 4th or 5th OF, or 4th SP, or utility IF
You see guys reach for players like LoDuca because they need to fill that spot but they pass on 3 or 4 catagory players to do so and that messes up their draft (i Think)
Basically if i can't land the #1catcher (say VMART) then i don't want to think about that position until 20th round or so
Another reason for this thinking is > some SP's have specialized catchers who may only play once every 5 games, but that could take away a start for my catcher if i have an SP who uses a specialized catcher
