14. Emma Meesseman
Emma Meesseman has never sought out the spotlight, and so far, the 26-year-old has managed to avoid it, too, first as the exciting young big next to Stefanie Dolson, now on a team with players who show up with big games and personalities to match like Elena Delle Donne, Kristi Toliver and Natasha Cloud. But Meesseman presents insoluble problems for opponents, with a 6’4 frame and long arms, an ability to step into passing lanes and grab steals in bunches, and range that doesn’t end. Meesseman’s usage rate has never topped 24 in a single WNBA season, yet she’s managed to put up elite player efficiency ratings all the same, north of 20 in her last four campaigns, and every indication early on she’s about to do the same in 2019. She’s fit comfortably in the lane of “second-best player on a championship team” as her ceiling since entering the league at 19, and 2019 might be the year she’s precisely that.
