I think Crisp is overrated going into this year. He's getting drafted earlier now than he was when he was looking like the full-time leadoff guy for the Red Sox. He is what he is, and it's not anything special offensively.
In terms of breakouts, Gordon and Butler have been mentioned. I also think Jacobs could have a real good season. He's moving for a massive pitcher's park so his power could jump a bit (though he was a bit lucky in the HR department last year). His BB and K rates regressed last year. At 28, let's hope it was merely an anomaly and he can get back at least to his ''05-'07 levels. His BABIP was also only .265 last year compared to over .290 for his career.
So with a little improvement and some luck, I can see Jacobs getting to .270/.325/.525 with 30+ homers. At a minimum, he's an ideal 1B fantasy platoon (a underutilized fantasy strategy) since he's a career .269/.329/.521 hitter vs righties and averages about 33 homers per full season against them.
