WR - NE
This Week Outlook
Kendrick Bourne came back down to earth on Sunday, catching one pass for 16 yards against the Miami Dolphins. He also added a two-yard rush.
Last week, Bourne broke free for 100 yards and one touchdown, and there was optimism that he could stay hot in Week 17 with DeVante Parker (concussion) sidelined. Instead, the 27-year-old had a confusingly quiet outing. He should be avoided in all fantasy leagues until the Patriots' coaching staff figures out how to deploy him more often.
Kendrick Bourne turned nine targets into six catches, 100 yards, and one touchdown during Saturday's loss to the Bengals. He also rushed for 29 yards.
With DeVante Parker (concussion) sidelined, Bourne saw an opportunity for more volume and ran with it. Not only did he catch his first touchdown of 2022, but this was the first time Bourne amassed 100 yards in a single game throughout his six-year career. The 27-year-old's potential has been smothered due to a lack of playing time, but perhaps Saturday's outing will earn him more snaps going forward. He's worth a speculative add in some dynasty formats.
Kendrick Bourne was unable to haul in his lone target during Sunday's loss to the Raiders.
Even with DeVante Parker (concussion) sidelined, Bourne was unable to carve out a role on offense. He belongs on waivers in all leagues.
Kendrick Bourne hauled in one of his two targets for 15 yards against the Bills on Thursday night.
Bourne has continued to come up in big spots for the Patriots despite being low on the depth chart. He has presumably earned Mac Jones' trust but is not a key fantasy contributor.
Kendrick Bourne hauled in three of his four targets for 36 yards during Thursday's loss to the Vikings.
Bourne saw his role increase in Week 12, partly due to a shoulder injury that temporarily forced No. 1 receiver Jakobi Meyers out of the game. Even though Bourne has looked good when the ball is thrown his way, he sits too far down the depth chart to have any fantasy relevance.
