Patriots Offensive Player of the Year: Kendrick Bourne
If Rhamondre Stevenson had more performances like he did in Week 9, he'd easily be New England's Offensive Player of the Year through nine weeks. However, Stevenson has been hit-or-miss more often than not, which is why I'm going with Kendrick Bourne for this award.
In a year where offseason signing JuJu Smith-Schuster was supposed to be the Pats' No. 1 wideout, Bourne has run away with the job instead. The 28-year-old playmaker already has more receptions (37) and TD catches (4) than he did last year (35 and 1) despite playing eight fewer games.
On top of that, Bourne is averaging a career-high 50.8 receiving yards per outing. He likely would've smashed his previous career high of 800 yards set in 2021 if it wasn't for an ACL tear ending his campaign at the end of October.
Hopefully, Bourne will make a full recovery from his devastating injury. He's a free agent at the end of the year, but his 2023 performance warrants a chance to bounce back in New England next season.
