2024 Fantasy Outlook
The No. 2 overall pick in 2022 enjoyed a strong rookie season and built upon that success a year ago. In 31 appearances (28 starts), Smith posted 15.5 points, 9.2 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game while shooting 47.7 percent from the field. That was a notable increase from her rookie campaign when she shot 41.9 percent from the floor. Smith did take a step back as an outside threat, however, taking only 2.2 threes per game and hitting at a 28.4 percent clip - down from 3.0 and 38.1 percent, respectively, in 2022. Entering the 2024 season, Smith is a key piece of the Fever's young foundation alongside Aliyah Boston. Indiana will also add another big name -- perhaps Caitlin Clark -- with the No. 1 pick in the 2024 WNBA Draft. The arrival of a player like Clark, or even Stanford's Cameron Brink, could cloud Smith's role going forward, but she has the upside to finish as a top-30 player in fantasy leagues. Smith provides a strong boost in points, boards and field-goal percentage, but she's not a great free-throw shooter (career 64.8% FT) and offers little in terms of defensive stats. Read Past Outlooks

2023 Fantasy Outlook
The No. 2 overall pick in the 2022 WNBA Draft appeared in (and started) 32 games as a rookie, notching averages of 13.5 points, 7.9 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 0.8 combined steals/blocks per game. Her scoring and rebounding averages led all first-year players. Smith also shot 41.9 percent from the field and an impressive 38.1 percent from three (1.2 3PM/G). Heading into Year 2, Smith will continue to be the focus of the Fever's rebuild. She projects to start at one forward spot and team with Kelsey Mitchell to handle much of the offensive workload.
