I went with two different strategies in two different leagues this year. Mixed League: pay for one stud and one decent C(got mauer who I overpaid for a bit at the time and IROD who I thought went too cheap to pass up) That league I am in 2nd place or 1st back and forth all year.
NL league strategy I went bargain basement.....and that is what I got very bargain and VERY basement! result: Dead last place and have been there since draft day. The results are not totally because of the catchers but they certainly have had an impact , both good and bad.
Just my Opinion,

Most players will overdraft someone like Victor or Mauer (good players and definitely fantasy roster worthy) but the difference between your #3 C and #12 C in terms of production, really isn't that much. So yes, Cs are worthless IMO.

I'd much rather have David Wright and Jorge Posada than Victor Martinez and Jaque Jones (drafted at about where Posada goes).

Mauer to Molina might be the same difference in draft as Beltran to Hector Luna. The difference in stats dictates I take the player with the biggest upgrade.
In my NL-only auction league, I will try to draft the rest of my team. Then I will see how much money I have left to get two catchers. If I have $15 out of $280 (25 players), I know I drafted well and can overpay to get two catchers who I can start (McCann and Lieberthal this year). But I won't overpay until the rest of my team's in place.
Some other managers will take two ML catchers who never even sniff major league action for $2. That way, their BA doesn't get hurt.
