Kendrick Bourne has been 'most consistent' 49ers' receiver
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Kendrick Bourne has "probably been the 49ers' most consistent receiver" in training camp, according to Nick Wagoner of ESPN.
Wagoner said Bournce caught a pair of touchdowns in practice as he "continues to show a knack for getting open in the red zone." The former undrafted free agent played the third-most snaps (43.7 percent) among 49ers' wideouts last season and he could see a larger role this year with Deebo Samuel (foot) currently sidelined and Jalen Hurd (ACL) out until 2021. Bourne never had 70 yards or more than 4 catches in any game last season, but he did tie George Kittle for the team lead with 5 touchdowns. Bourne is competing with Trent Taylor, Tavon Austin, Dante Pettis, and even Jerick McKinnon for early-season snaps behind Brandon Aiyuk.
Bourne is the WR84 in numberFire's preseason fantasy rankings. Our models project him for 58.7 targets, 36.3 receptions, 434.4 yards, and 3.3 touchdowns.
