25-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
New England Patriots
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Bourne, who signed a three-year, $15 million deal with the Patriots this offseason, has an opportunity to emerge as the team's top slot option with Julian Edelman's retirement. Like fellow free-agent acquisition Nelson Agholor and returnee Jakobi Meyers, Bourne has the versatility to line up outside or in the slot. Edelman's departure following a productive stint that began in 2009 sets the stage for a revamped wide receiver depth chart in New England. As things stand, Bourne - who logged a 49-667-2 stat line in 15 games for the 49ers in 2020 - is in line to be a key target for whoever starts at quarterback. If Agholor is deployed as a deep threat by New England, it's plausible that Bourne's share of the team's slot targets could translate into PPR relevance. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
Like fellow free-agent acquisition Nelson Agholor and returnee Jakobi Meyers, Bourne has the versatility to line up outside or in the slot. Edelman's departure following a productive stint with the Patriots that began in 2009 sets the stage for a revamped wide receiver depth chart in New England this coming season. As things stand, Bourne -- who logged a 49-667-2 stat line in 15 games for the 49ers in 2020 -- is in line to be a key target for Cam Newton. If Agholor is deployed as a deep threat by New England, it's plausible that Bourne's share of the team's slot targets could translate into PPR relevance.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2018
Bourne began the 2019 campaign as receiver depth and a special teams contributor, but he forced his way into the starting lineup for the second straight season and finished with 30 receptions for 358 yards and five touchdowns. The 6-1 wideout doesn't possess blazing speed and drops the occasional catchable ball, but he provides much-needed size for San Francisco's receiving unit and has earned Jimmy Garoppolo's trust in key moments, as evidenced by a crucial 3rd-and-15 pitch and catch in the Super Bowl. The 49ers only made one impact addition at the wide receiver position - first-round pick Brandon Aiyuk - while losing veterans Emmanuel Sanders and Marquise Goodwin this offseason, but Deebo Samuel's summer foot injury could open the door for Bourne to see some extra targets early in the year.
Bourne had the best season of any San Francisco wideout when you factor in preseason expectations and actual production. The 23-year-old produced 487 receiving yards and four touchdowns on 42 receptions over 16 games (eight starts). If things remained status quo, it would be safe to say that Bourne was a fantasy player on the rise with a larger role ahead, but the 49ers brought in two talented wideouts via the draft, which could bump the former back into a fringe position to begin the 2019 campaign.
Bourne was able to make the squad as an undrafted rookie after impressing coaches in camp. The 6-1 receiver didn't make an impact until the second half of the season, when injuries took their toll on the receiving corps. Bourne generated enough good will to get another shot to prove himself in camp, but he'll be taking on a larger pool of young receivers after the team added two wideouts in the draft.
