WR - NE
According to sources, former 49ers WR Kendrick Bourne is expected to sign a 3-yr, $22.5M deal to play for the New England Patriots.
The Patriots' spending spree continues with the Kendrick Bourne becoming the latest WR coming to New England. Bourne's fantasy value will continue as a WR3/4 with Cam Newton at the helm. However, Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel will now have even less to compete with for targets with Bourne out of town.
Jeremy Fowler of ESPN is reporting that the Patriots are reportedly working on a potential deal for WR Kendrick Bourne.
The Patriots reportedly were looking to add a wide receiver during the offseason and could potentially add Bourne. He posted career-highs in targets (74), receptions (49) and receiving yards (667) across 15 games for the 49ers in 2020. “He’s got multiple offers and still talking with other teams, but New England could get that done,” Fowler added. Bourne would give QB Cam Newton another target and is expected compete for the Patriots WR2 gig. Stay tuned.
Kendrick Bourne hauled in his lone target for 16 yards during the 49ers 20-12 victory over the Cardinals in Week 16.
A week after posting his season-high in receiving yards, Bourne was held to one catch on one target for 16 yards with C.J. Beathard under center. It also didn't help that George Kittle returned to the lineup and vultered away five targets. Still, Bourne is a hit or miss fantasy option and Saturday was a good representation of his extremely low floor. He'll be on the WR4/5 radar in Week 17 against the Seahawks, a team he posted eight receptions and 81 yards against back in Week 8.
Kendrick Bourne caught all four of his targets for 86 yards and a touchdown during the 49ers' 33-41 loss to the Cowboys in Week 15.
Bourne saw an increased role with Deebo Samuel (hamstring) sitting this one out. Still, his four targets ranked fourth on the team behind Brandon Aiyuk, Richie James Jr. and Jordan Reed and he likely won't see enough volume on a consistent basis to provide weekly fantasy value. He will be on the streaming radar for Week 16 against the Cardinals.
Kendrick Bourne hauled in 3-of-7 targets for 42 yards during the 49ers' Week 14 loss to the WFT.
Bourne's seven targets trailed only Brandon Aiyuk (16) as he saw a larger role with Deebo Samuel forced out of the game with a hamstring injury. With Samuel likely to miss a few games, Bourne should be a plug and play WR3/4 for Week 15 against the Cowboys as his role should increase due to there being less mouths to feed in this passing game.
