Scouting report

SF WR Kendrick Bourne - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs. Green Bay Packers

Kendrick Bourne was targeted 10 times against the Seahawks last week, catching eight balls for 81 yards. With Deebo Samuel likely to miss at least another game, Bourne has a chance to see significant targets again this week against the Green Bay Packers, who rank fifth in aFPA to opposing wide receivers.

Bourne has some extra upside, because Green Bay coverage demon Jaire Alexander will likely be following rookie Brandon Aiyuk around. That might leave Bourne as a nice secondary option and 10 targets isn’t outside the realm of possibilities again. The Packers are tough against wide receivers, ranking fifth in aFPA to the position this season, but Bourne should benefit from negative game script and attrition on the roster. He has sneaky PPR value in deep leagues as a WR3 option.

Update: Looks like Bourne is a COVID list candidate, so be sure to get him out of your lineup unless things change before game time.

SF WR Kendrick Bourne - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 at Seattle Seahawks

Kendrick Bourne had only one target last week against the Patriots, but he stands to see an increase in snaps and targets with Deebo Samuel out of the lineup again. Bourne has some upside this week in a great matchup with the Seattle Seahawks, who rank dead last in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. He averaged 5.33 targets in the three games without Samuel earlier this season, and if he gets that work again, he could be a sneaky desperation play in deep leagues in this matchup. He’s risky, and not worth carrying in most leagues, but there’s some upside if you absolutely have no other option.

SF WR Kendrick Bourne - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 vs. Arizona Cardinals

Kendrick Bourne should benefit from the absence of Deebo Samuel, but its risky to bank on him, even in a good matchup. Fantasy owners should stick with Kittle in this 49ers passing game.

SF WR Kendrick Bourne - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Seattle Seahawks

Kendrick Bourne had just two catches and 29 yards against the Rams last week. He continues to be a touchdown-dependent fantasy option with very little production outside of his five trips to the end zone this season. That’s difficult to bank on in any given week, even in a pretty good matchup against the Seahawks – Bourne scored a touchdown the last time these two teams faced each other. With Bourne being too risky to count on, fantasy owners should leave him on waivers for the final game of the season.

SF WR Kendrick Bourne - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs. Los Angeles Rams

Kendrick Bourne was held to just one catch and 11 yards last week against the Falcons. He has been touchdown-or-bust this season, with just three games over 31 yards, and while his five touchdowns have come in the past seven games, he’s simply too risky to bank on in the vast majority of fantasy leagues. Owners should leave him on waivers this week with a tough matchup against the Rams.

SF WR Kendrick Bourne - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. Atlanta Falcons

Kendrick Bourne scored two touchdowns last week but he only gained 18 yards on three receptions. He’s clearly won the third WR job, which is good, but he’s very touchdown-dependent as a fantasy option. He’s scored five times in his last six games, but he’s yet to eclipse 43 yards in any of them. His season-high is just 69 yards back in mid-October against Washington. Bourne is too risky to trust during the playoffs, and fantasy owners should leave him on waivers and let someone else worry about whether he’ll find the end zone or not week-to-week.

SF WR Kendrick Bourne - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 at New Orleans Saints

Kendrick Bourne had three catches for 42 yards last week against the Ravens, and while he definitely seems to have earned the WR3 role on the team, the 49ers simply don’t put up enough passing numbers to sustain more than one fantasy receiver. While Bourne has been productive at times, he’s very touchdown-dependent and his production isn’t consistent enough to warrant rostering in the vast majority of leagues. Leave him on waivers.
