Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 19 vs MIN (5 / 3 / 40 / 1 rec - 11.5 points, $5000)
Bourne had a big game, but not without some flaws. He came through with a short score off of a play action pass to cap the 49ers first drive and also made a sprawling catch on a 3rd and long desperation quacker from Jimmy Garoppolo to extend the second drive. He also had two bad drops, but redeemed himself in the second half with a leaping catch on a third and long.
2019 Week 16 vs LAR (3 / 2 / 29 / 0 rec - 3.9 points, $5100)
Once again, Bourne came through in his role as San Francisco's situational football weapon. This time, he converted a 3rd-and-16 on the 49ers' game-winning drive. It was a simple option route out of the left slot where he was able to settle down in a hole in the Rams' Cover-3 zone.
2019 Week 15 vs ATL (2 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec - 1.6 points, $5400)
Though Bourne only had two targets, both were on third down; yet even more evidence that he's a coveted weapon for Kyle Shanahan in crucial situations. Having said that, he won't be for long if he keeps dropping half of said targets like he did in this game.
2019 Week 14 vs NO (4 / 3 / 18 / 2 rec - 15.3 points, $4900)
Though both were vital to San Francisco's chances of winning, Bourne's two red zone touchdowns were completely different stylistically. The first, which answered New Orleans' "hot knife through butter" opening touchdown drive, was designed to target Bourne's pivot route against the Saints' quarters coverage. He faked a 7-yard out route, pivoted off of Marcus Lattimore toward the inside, and made an easy catch for the score. In contrast, his second touchdown, which put the 49ers up 42-33 in the fourth quarter, resulted from everyone else being covered, and Bourne losing slot cornerback P.J. Williams in the back of the end zone during a sandlot scramble drill.
2019 Week 13 vs BAL (3 / 3 / 42 / 0 rec - 5.7 points, $4600)
Bourne extended San Francisco's scoring drive to open the game with a third-down, 30-yard catch and run. It was actually the result of a blown coverage by Marcus Peters, however. It's hard to know what Peters was supposed to do on the play, but whatever it was, it wasn't crashing so far inside that you completely vacate the short left zone for which you're solely responsible.
2019 Week 11 vs ARI (6 / 4 / 31 / 1 rec - 11.1 points, $4800)
Bourne's second target nearly produced a carbon copy of the "while wide open, drop a slightly high throw and tip it to the defender for an interception" play that he pulled off against Seattle last week. He redeemed himself two targets later by badly beating cornerback Byron Murphy, Jr., on a quick slant at the goal line for a touchdown that gave the 49ers a fourth quarter lead.
2019 Week 10 vs SEA (8 / 4 / 42 / 1 rec - 14.2 points, $4800)
Bourne started off the game well, scoring a first-quarter touchdown on a quick slant in the red zone against slot cornerback Jamar Taylor. After Emmanuel Sanders got hurt, Bourne stepped into an expanded role, playing nearly ever snap. Unfortunately, the only two things of note that Bourne did from there were absolute killers. First, he somehow volleyball-set a wide-open deep gain for San Francisco into an easy interception for Seattle. Then, late in the fourth quarter, Bourne dropped what would have been a carbon copy of his previoius touchdown. Making that wide-open catch would have (at the very least) set the 49ers up with 1st-and-goal inside the 10-yard line.
2019 Week 7 vs WAS (4 / 3 / 69 / 0 rec - 8.4 points, $4500)
Bourne took over Marquise Goodwin's role in the offense after Goodwin got hurt on San Francisco's first drive. This role was abundantly clear on Bourne's three receptions, as all three involved routes typically run by Goodwin. The first was a deep out route from the left slot that gained 28 yards against safety Landon Collins. Both of Bourne's other catches came on backside crossing routes, but the last one was the same play Goodwin scored a touchdwn on against Cincinnati in Week 2. Namely, Bourne motioned tight to the line as if he was going to block, then navigated through the sea of humanity while the backfield executed a play-action fake, and then found himself wide open deep downfield. It would have been a touchdown if not for the tempestuous conditions producing an underthrow by Jimmy Garoppolo.
