  • Kendrick Bourne Has Surgery, Could Be Ready For Training Camp Next Year

    Headshot for Kendrick Bourne

    New England Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne (knee) had successful surgery to fix his torn right ACL on Wednesday, and it was performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles. Bourne is rehabbing in the same facility as New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers. It's believed that he could recover in time for the start of training camp next summer. The 28-year-old was the Patriots' leading receiver at the time of his season-ending injury in the Week 8 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Bourne finishes his 2023 campaign with 37 receptions for 406 yards and four touchdowns on 55 targets. In his absence the rest of the way, rookie Demario Douglas and JuJu Smith-Schuster should continue to operate as the team's top two wideouts. Bourne will be an unrestricted free agent in March of 2024.

    The Patriots’ receiving corps has been dealt a blow for the rest of the season. Kendrick Bourne has suffered an ACL tear, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. There was initial hope that Bourne had only suffered an MCL injury, as noted by Garafolo’s colleague Ian Rapoport. Instead, the worst-case scenario has now been confirmed by an […]

  • Kendrick Bourne Suffers Torn ACL

    Headshot for Kendrick Bourne

    New England Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne (knee) suffered a torn right ACL in the Week 8 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, according to a source. Bourne will miss the remainder of the season and can be safely dropped in single-year fantasy leagues at this time. The 28-year-old was the most consistent wideout for a struggling Patriots offense all year, and he'll finish with 37 receptions on 55 targets for 406 yards and four touchdowns in eight games. The Patriots also lost DeVante Parker to a head injury on Sunday, so they could be down to JuJu Smith-Schuster, Demario Douglas and Jalen Reagor heading into a Week 9 date with the Washington Commanders. Tight ends Hunter Henry and Mike Gesicki should also have bigger roles moving forward with Bourne done for the year.

  • Kendrick Bourne Set For An MRI On Monday

    Headshot for Kendrick Bourne

    According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, New England Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne (knee) will get an MRI on Monday. The wideout injured his right knee during the Week 8 meeting with the Dolphins and didn't return. He's had a good 2023-24 campaign, so fantasy managers hope the ailment won't keep him out for the remainder of the year. Fortunately, the team is optimistic Bourne avoided anything serious. But if the 28-year-old misses time, it could mean more targets for Hunter Henry, Demario Douglas, and JuJu Smith-Schuster. DeVante Parker (head), who also left Sunday's contest with a head injury, would also benefit, assuming he doesn't join Bourne on the shelf.

    Headshot for Kendrick Bourne

    New England Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of Week 8 versus the Miami Dolphins. He had caught three of four targets for 36 yards and one touchdown, salvaging his fantasy performance prior to his departure. New England could struggle to replace Bourne on offense and will now turn to some combination of Demario Douglas, DeVante Parker, and JuJu Smith-Schuster at the wide receiver position.

  • Kendrick Bourne Approaching WR2 Territory In Week 8

    Headshot for Kendrick Bourne

    New England Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne is quickly ascending as a valuable option in fantasy football, and he could reach the WR2 tier in a juicy Week 8 matchup against the Miami Dolphins. The 28-year-old has 16 catches, 152 yards, and one touchdown over the last two weeks, ranking as the WR8 overall during that span. He played a season-high 93 percent of snaps in both of those games, highlighting his prominent role in the Patriots' offensive attack. Now, with the Patriots projected to throw the ball a lot versus Miami, Bourne could ascend to the next level. Having exhibited reliable hands and the ability to handle heavy volume, Bourne is suddenly a fringe top-24 fantasy receiver.

  • Kendrick Bourne Emerging As Reliable Fantasy Option

    Headshot for Kendrick Bourne

    New England Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne turned seven targets into six catches for 63 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's win over the Buffalo Bills. Bourne operated as Mac Jones' favorite target once again and helped the Patriots' offense find some much-needed life in the upset victory. He should be viewed as a high-end fantasy WR3 ahead of an appealing matchup against the Miami Dolphins in Week 8.

  • Kendrick Bourne An Appealing FLEX Option In Week 7

    Headshot for Kendrick Bourne

    New England Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne has recently been the team's top option in the passing game, giving him WR3/FLEX appeal for Week 7 versus the Buffalo Bills. While Bourne's production hinges on the play of quarterback Mac Jones, who has struggled mightily over the last three weeks, the veteran receiver capitalized on heavy volume last Sunday against the Raiders. Bourne finished that game with 11 targets, 10 catches, and 89 yards and might see a similar load in Week 7 if the Patriots fall behind early, as expected. As bye weeks and injuries take a toll on fantasy teams, Bourne could give managers much-needed relief as a WR3 with upside.

    Headshot for Kendrick Bourne

    New England Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne was targeted 11 times during Sunday's loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. He finished the game with 10 catches for 89 receiving yards while also adding a four-yard rush. Bourne played a huge role with JuJu Smith-Schuster (head) and Demario Douglas (head) sidelined. This was his second-best fantasy performance of the season and makes him a reasonable WR3/FLEX option against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7.

  • Kendrick Bourne Only Has Appeal In Deep Leagues

    Headshot for Kendrick Bourne

    New England Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne has low-end fantasy appeal heading into Week 6 versus the Las Vegas Raiders. The Patriots' offense has been terrible lately, but perhaps clashes with the Jets, Cowboys, and Saints made New England look worse than it actually is. A matchup with the mediocre-at-best Raiders could give the Patriots new life, and Bourne has a chance to benefit significantly with JuJu Smith-Schuster (head), Demario Douglas (head), and Tyquan Thornton (shoulder) all banged up. If the Patriots pass the ball a lot and can expose Vegas' suspect secondary, Bourne could have fantasy relevance. Such an outcome is far from a guarantee, but this might be a risk worth taking in deep leagues.

  • Kendrick Bourne Hauls In Two Passes Sunday

    Headshot for Kendrick Bourne

    New England Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne caught two of five targets for 43 yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 5. The 29-year-old led the Patriots in targets and yards, but that was a low bar to surpass given New England mustered zero points and just 156 net yards on offense. As the Patriots try to overcome offensive struggles, Bourne is nothing more than a bench option in deeper fantasy leagues.

    Headshot for Kendrick Bourne

    New England Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne hauled in two of three targets for 36 yards in Week 4 versus the Cowboys. The Patriots lost by a score of 38-3, falling to 1-3 on the season. This was the Bourne's worst game of the season in terms of both statistics and fantasy production. The 28-year-old had a big Week 1, playing 91 percent of snaps and scoring two touchdowns, but has come back down to earth since then. Notably, he has yet to log more than 56 percent of snaps in a single game since the opener. He has lost playing time to DeVante Parker and Demario Douglas and isn't an appealing fantasy option for the time being.

  • Kendrick Bourne A Shaky Option For Week 4

    Headshot for Kendrick Bourne

    New England Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne is an unreliable fantasy option heading into Week 4 versus the Dallas Cowboys. It's no secret that Dallas has a tough defense and should make it difficult for Mac Jones and co. to get much done on Sunday. It should also be noted that while Bourne leads the team in targets, catches, and yards, his season stats are skewed by an explosive Week 1 performance in which he scored two touchdowns. Bourne has 75 yards over his last two games and played just 56 percent of snaps last week. You can leave him on your bench for the time being.

    New England Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne hauled in four of five targets for 46 receiving yards during Sunday's win over the New York Jets. He and DeVante Parker continue to co-exist as the team's top wide receivers, clearly earning more volume than offseason addition JuJu Smith-Schuster. Bourne will rank as a WR4 in fantasy leagues going forward and can be left on your benches versus the Cowboys in Week 4.

  • Kendrick Bourne Tough To Trust In Week 3

    Headshot for Kendrick Bourne

    New England Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne isn't a reliable fantasy option heading into Sunday's game against the Jets. Last week's return of DeVante Parker (knee) dropped Bourne's snap share to just 51 percent, so while he did still total nine targets and four receptions, it's unclear just how much playing time he'll get going forward. It's also worth noting that Sauce Gardner will likely cover Parker, leaving Bourne or JuJu Smith-Schuster open, but the biggest benefactor might actually be Hunter Henry. Between reduced playing time, a tough matchup, and several mouths to feed, the odds are stacked against Bourne in Week 3. You can find better options at WR or FLEX.

  • Kendrick Bourne Commands Nine Targets Sunday

    Headshot for Kendrick Bourne

    New England Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne was targeted nine times during Week 2 versus the Miami Dolphins. He ultimately finished the game with just four catches for 29 yards. There's a lot of information to discuss with Bourne, who is the Patriots' most-targeted receiver (20) through two games but played just 51 percent of snaps on Sunday. This was a major step backward from his 91 percent snap share, 64 receiving yards, and two touchdowns in Week 2. The biggest factor in Bourne's decreased workload is DeVante Parker, who played 100 percent of snaps Sunday while leading the Patriots in catches and receiving yards upon his return from injury. He should be viewed as New England's No. 1 receiver going forward while Bourne and JuJu Smith-Schuster grapple for the No. 2 job. For the time being, Bourne is a low-end bench option in traditional 12-team formats.

  • Kendrick Bourne - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Headshot for Kendrick Bourne

    New England Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne is on the fantasy radar ahead of Sunday Night Football versus the Miami Dolphins. Bourne operated as the Patriots' top receiver last week, hauling in six of 11 targets for 64 yards and two touchdowns. He's squarely in the mix to be the team's top option again in Week 2, especially if DeVante Parker (knee) is out or limited. With injuries already popping up at the wide receiver position, you should feel comfortable pivoting to insert someone like Bourne into your fantasy lineups as a low-end WR3/FLEX play.

  • Kendrick Bourne Finds The End Zone Twice In Week 1

    Headshot for Kendrick Bourne

    New England Patriots wide receiver Kendrick Bourne caught six of 11 targets for 64 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 25-20 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. With Tyquan Thornton (shoulder) and DeVante Parker (knee) sidelined, Bourne moved up the wide receiver depth chart as New England's WR2 behind only JuJu Smith-Schuster. The 28-year-old led the team in targets, and quarterback Mac Jones found Bourne for a pair of touchdowns (19, 11) in the Week 1 loss. He averaged 5.8 yards per target and 10.7 yards per reception. Bourne and Jones showed great chemistry on Sunday, and the duo will look to build on Week 1's performance in the Week 2 matchup against the Dolphins.
