I know almost nothing about this guy. Hernandez is my starting C but with him injured I have B. Molina filling in :t Can anyone tell me what to expect from Napoli for the rest of the season? its a points league, right now Hernandez is at 2.5 ppg in our format, Napoli at 2.4. Thanks!

Napoli has been considered a good hitting catcher prospect. However, I see him better in the real game then in fantasy. If hernandez can get healthy I'd rather have him
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Yeah, Napoli is more of a HR hitter than anything else. He will most likely won't hit for a high average and his RBI totals won't be anything special either. Don't count Hernandez out just yet. I see him coming back in a big way very soon.

He's been red hot over the past month, and I've been using him while Piazza is on the mend.

his homers should make up for his low average. in a points league i'd use him and feel fine doing it. i think he's actually (fantasy wise) much like bengie. 15+ hrs, around .240-.260 average (bengie is usually a low avg hitter, though he's on a most-likely-temporary tear this year so far).

Also filling in for Piazza, for me in a couple leagues.

I mostly play OBP instead of BA leagues, and Napoli is a much better play there since he gets more walks per game than any catcher (or close to it).

Definitely gives you power. Also, appears to be good for a few steals this year.

Are you saying he's the Adam Dunn of squatters?
