2024 Fantasy Outlook
Powers averaged 13.9 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 24.6 minutes per game over the four seasons leading up to the 2023 campaign, and she started a career-high 31 games in 2022. However, she saw her role drastically decline last year, as she averaged just 5.2 points in 9.8 minutes per game while playing exclusively off the bench in her 20 appearances. The 30-year-old fell out of Minnesota's rotation at times but publicly said on Twitter in August that she planned to sign elsewhere as a free agent during the offseason. Powers has proven to be capable of handling substantial playing time, and she'll attempt to bounce back on a short-term deal with Atlanta. She can provide fairly well-rounded fantasy production when given ample playing time, making her an intriguing upside option in drafts. Read Past Outlooks
Held scoreless in first start
FAtlanta Dream
June 23, 2024
Powers was held scoreless (0-2 FG) with three assists and one block over 17 minutes in Sunday's 96-75 loss to New York.
ANALYSIS
Powers got her first start of the season Sunday in place of Cheyenne Parker-Tyus as Atlanta shook up the starting lineup since Rhyne Howard (ankle) remained out. Powers was held scoreless in the outing, missing both of her shot attempts while adding a trio of assists in under 20 minutes. Powers failed to crack the scoring column for the first time this season despite entering Sunday's game having reached double figures in scoring in five of her previous six appearances.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2023
2022
Powers endured injury-plagued seasons in 2020 and 2021 but appeared in all but one of Minnesota's games last year and started in 31 of her 35 appearances. She responded by averaging 14.4 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 26.9 minutes per game, all career-best marks over a full season. The Lynx didn't make significant additions on the wing during the offseason, and she should be one of the focal points for the team if she can stay healthy in 2023. Fantasy managers should exercise some caution given her injury history, but her upside was on display in 2022
Powers endured another injury-plagued season in 2021, as she missed five games with a hamstring injury early in the year before thumb surgery in mid-June sidelined her for just over two months. Powers' production has never been a major issue, given her consistent scoring ability while pitching in contributions in both rebounds and assists. Across her 14 appearances (seven starts) last year, she averaged 13.1 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 13.4 minutes per game. The knock against Powers has been her availability. She has played 30 or more games just twice through her first seven WNBA seasons. Entering her age-28 season, she's healthy and should continue to have a prominent role in the frontcourt alongside Sylvia Fowles. Unfortunately, Powers' fantasy value hinges on her ability to stay healthy.
