Due to players dropping out and/or leaving the area, our current season only has 4 players, so our teams will play 6 leagues games, maybe a final and might be able to play in friendlies (not BB2016).

In my 3rd league game one of my catchers rolled a double.
I'm leaning towards ignoring it and taking Dodge.
To face (probably in this order) - Vamps, Skaven and Orcs.

I think you're right. Dodge is better than any double in a short league.

I agree with no double, Dodge or Wrestle. A Wrestle/Strip Ball Catcher does wonders even if 2 of 3 opponents have some Sure Hands. With maybe 4 games left, probably Dodge. If it was 6 or more to go, I would say Wrestle then Strip Ball.
Since some people might not follow the link and be seeking advice for their own teams:
If you have a Wrestle and/or Strip Ball Catcher, 2+ to get a Guard in for 1 die hit might be worth it, even in short league.

I'd consider guard and even pass.
Guard would however work better if you had gone with wrestle on your other players (instead of block)

Since you have wrestle on a blitzer, I would consider guard on that catcher. He is the perfect mobile guard, maybe he won't live that long but I would advocate that he might win you some games in the process of dying.
Also this would make your opponents to take into account that leap blitz as you are almost certain to get the guard in.
The option of pass is valuable as you have the catchers but no one to throw the ball. On the other hand I doubt that offence is really the problem for Slann.

So I would try guard because it will have a bigger impact on games.

As your Skaven opponent I recommend you take the double and gain Strong Arm skill. It can't go wrong.
