Kendrick Bourne, WR, San Francisco 49ers
In terms of volume (three catches for 18 yards), Bourne took his typical backseat against the New Orleans Saints in Week 14. But he joined the 49ers’ scoring party with two touchdowns last Sunday, and he has scored in four of his last six games now.
In Week 15 San Francisco will face the Atlanta Falcons, who entered Week 14 allowing the eighth-most fantasy points to wide receivers (Yahoo! 0.5-point PPR) with 14 touchdowns (ninth-most in the league) allowed to the position.
Barring injuries to other 49ers wide receivers, Bourne will need to score to register a notable fantasy day. But at least for Week 15, in a favorable matchup, it’s worth taking a chance he’ll do just that as a WR3 or flex in very deep leagues.
