Bourne caught four passes (seven targets) for 33 yards in Monday's 27-23 loss to the Giants.
Bourne entered the starting lineup in place of Pierre Garcon (knee), finishing second in targets for the 49ers. The high usage didn't result in a useful fantasy line, highlighting the 23-year-old's low upside in standard leagues. With San Francisco's bye week on tap, Bourne could find himself in a backup role if Garcon can heal up with the extra rest.
Bourne caught both of his targets for six yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 34-3 win over the Raiders.
Bourne's strong Week 8 performance (seven catches for 71 yards) helped him vault ahead of Trent Taylor (healthy scratch) on the depth chart. The second-year wideout took advantage of the opportunity, cashing in for his third touchdown of the season. Bourne's role has varied on a week-to-week basis, but he was targeted in the red zone for the fifth time through nine games, the highest total among all San Francisco wideouts. The 23-year-old's upside remains capped so long as Marquise Goodwin and Pierre Garcon are healthy, but his touchdown potential could attract deep-league owners in a pinch against the Giants in Week 10.
Bourne caught seven of 10 targets for 71 yards in Sunday's 18-15 loss to the Cardinals.
Pierre Garcon (knee) did not suit up for this one, opening the door for Bourne to enter the starting receiver rotation. The 23-year-old led the 49ers in receptions, targets and yards. This was likely a result of Marquise Goodwin drawing the tough matchup with Patrick Peterson, so fantasy owners shouldn't expect this kind of usage on a regular basis. Bourne, however, did appear to move ahead of rookie Dante Pettis on the depth chart, who did not record and catch and was limited to special teams duties in his return from a knee injury. Garcon may be required to miss an additional game due to the short turnaround of Thursday's matchup with the Raiders, so Bourne could find himself starting on the outside alongside Goodwin again.
Bourne caught one pass (three targets) for 22 yards in Monday's 33-30 loss to the Packers.
Bourne was elevated to third on the receiving depth chart with both Trent Taylor (back) and Dante Pettis (knee) sitting out Monday's contest. Despite the increased role, the 23-year-old saw fewer targets than either of his previous two games (four and seven, respectively) when he served as the 49ers' fourth receiver. Bourne does have two touchdowns on the year, but his sporadic target share keeps him off the fantasy radar for the time being.
Bourne recorded four catches (on seven targets) for 33 yards in Sunday's loss to Arizona.
Bourne was elevated into the starting lineup with both Marquise Goodwin (hamstring) and Dante Pettis (knee) sitting this one out. The 23-year-old saw a career-high seven targets, but none of those came in the red zone -- he had two red-zone targets and two touchdowns over the previous three games -- resulting in a lackluster fantasy line. It is unclear if Goodwin and Pettis will be able to return next week against the Packers, so Bourne could be in line for another start.
