2024 Fantasy Outlook
Samuelson was unavailable for the entire 2023 campaign due to her pregnancy, but she earned a two-year contract with the Fever ahead of the 2024 season. She had one of the best years of her career with the Sparks in 2022, averaging 9.7 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 29.5 minutes per game over 32 appearances (29 starts). The Fever have several young contributors and will have another young star to add to the fold if they are able to draft Caitlin Clark with the first overall pick in the 2024 WNBA Draft. However, Samuelson should have a chance to compete with Lexie Hull for a starting role this year. Samuelson has been a more productive player earlier in her career, so it wouldn't be surprising to see her win the competition for a starting job. However, fantasy managers should temper expectations since Indiana will likely prioritize the development of its budding stars. Read Past Outlooks

May 22, 2024
Samuelson will come off the bench Wednesday against the Storm.
ANALYSIS
Samuelson saw her workload dwindle to 15 minutes Monday against Connecticut and will yield her starting role to Kristy Wallace for Wednesday's contest. Samuelson hasn't scored more than 10 points in a game this season, but she's shooting 4-for-7 from beyond the arc across four games.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2023
2022
In 2022, her first season with Los Angeles, Samuelson averaged career highs in scoring (9.7), assists (1.9), steals (1.0), made three-pointers (1.8) and minutes (29.5). Samuelson announced her pregnancy and a due date of August on social media, suggesting she will likely miss the 2023 campaign.
Samuelson made 27 appearances (24 starts) for Seattle last season and averaged 7.0 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 21.0 minutes while shooting 45.6 percent overall and 35.1 percent from deep, easily her most productive season in the WNBA. The Sparks acquired the 6-foot-3 wing – and a first-round pick – this offseason in exchange for Gabby Williams, which will mark Samuelson's fourth team in as many seasons since being drafted fourth overall in 2019. It's unclear how big of a role she will have for Los Angeles, but she figures to be a core part of the rotation in 2022.
