Best Average: Bryce Harper, WAS
The biggest change for Bryce Harper in what turned out to be an MVP season in 2015 was a significantly more patient approach, as his walk rate climbed from 9.6 percent to 19.0 percent. He picks his pitch and crushes it, and that should mean plenty more batting averages north of .300.
Best Power: Giancarlo Stanton, MIA
Bryce Harper and Mike Trout have yet to reach their peak despite the fact they both topped the 40-homer mark last season. Jose Bautista, Nelson Cruz and Chris Davis, who also has outfield eligibility, are all safe bets to eclipse that mark once again, as well. However, a healthy Giancarlo Stanton is still the most dangerous hitter in the game, and if anyone is going to make a run at 50 long balls, it's him.
Best Speed: Billy Hamilton, CIN
Even with a .226 average and .274 on-base percentage, Billy Hamilton managed to steal 57 bases last season. If he can find a way to hit .250, he'd be a legitimate threat for 75 stolen bases.
Breakout Candidate: Jarrod Dyson, KC
He may not be a breakout star in real baseball terms, but as a fantasy option, Jarrod Dyson is someone to target. He swiped 26 bases last season despite tallying just 200 at-bats, and now that he's set to move into an everyday role, he could see that total double.
Bust Candidate: Gerardo Parra, FA
Depending on where he signs, Gerardo Parra could find himself in a good position to score runs at or near the top of someone's lineup. He had the best season of his career last year, but his .237/.268/.357 line after being traded to Baltimore is a good sign he was playing over his head.
