All Kendrick Bourne does is catch touchdowns

The San Francisco 49ers are leading the New Orleans Saints in a shootout, and Kendrick Bourne has quietly put together another big-time outing. Bourne only has three receptions for 18 yards, but he has hauled in two touchdowns. It gives Bourne five touchdowns, which leads the 49ers.

Emmanuel Sanders leads the 49ers with seven receptions for 157 yards and a touchdown. Sanders also happens to have a 35-yard touchdown pass. Deebo Samuel is second the team with four receptions for 69 yards.

Bourne is not a fantasy option at this point, but he’s turned into a big-time playmaker for Jimmy Garoppolo and the passing offense. Garoppolo trusts him in the red zone and it is showing today as he has found him in traffic with a couple big throws. Maybe Bourne turns into a Jerome Bettis-esque touchdown only player!
