Heyward was a top 5 OF last year and arguably a top 10 batter in all MLB. His offense was above average (120 wRC+ and .351 wOBA) and his defense was phenominal. I'd say his 2011 was more of a sophomore slump and him just getting figured out for a bit. Most players will regress at least slightly after a great year like he had.
As for the other two, I'd trust Justin more than BJ if I were to take one for next year. Guy has shown the potential to MASH, even if it was in Arizona which is hitter friendly. BJ isn't really more than an average hitter, but he's like Bourn that his speed will make up for some of it.
It'll be interesting to see how Upton x2 fares in hitting in a new park, but it will be tough for balls to drop in that OF with all of DAT SPEED.
