As a highly-regarded recruit, Troy Franklin stepped on the Oregon campus and made an immediate impact at one of the best programs in the country.

He didn’t necessarily ‘break out’ as a true freshman, but he still managed to appear in all 14 games, totaling 209 receiving yards and two touchdowns on 18 receptions. Although he was a raw talent, he was able to make an impact. He showed his future potential when he put up 4-65-1 against Oklahoma in the team’s bowl game.

Franklin made a quick jump from his freshman to sophomore year, becoming the WR1 of the offense. He posted an impressive 56 receptions for 867 yards (15.5 avg) and eight touchdowns. He played his best against ranked opponents, scoring six touchdowns in seven opportunities. He was still more of a vertical threat as a sophomore, but his route tree began to expand, which set up for an elite junior season that catapulted him up draft boards and receiver rankings.


As a true junior, Franklin exploded, racking up 81 receptions for 1,383 yards (17.1 avg) and 14 touchdowns. He expanded his route tree to become a more complete receiver while also dominating vertically, as shown above. He also proved he could play both inside and outside, as evidenced by his 68.3% snap percentage outside and his 30.9% snap percentage in the slot.

All in all, Franklin arrived at Oregon as a burner and departed as an intriguing route runner with elite quickness and acceleration that proves he could become a special NFL wide receiver.



Troy Franklin is a lanky wideout with serious wheels and big-play ability, helping unlock Bo Nix’s offense in 2023. The 6-3 wideout is a burner (will run in 4.3s) and one of the top deep threats in the country. He gets loose vertically but also possesses serious quickness after the catch, snatching ankles in the process.

According to PFF, Franklin had 37 explosive plays of 15 yards or more and forced 14 missed tackles with the ball in his hands. The best part of Franklin’s game is that he’s not just a straight-line burner; he dices up corners in intermediate routes and can get open on any level. He even added a high-point wrinkle to his game, winning jump balls his junior season. Still, he’ll make the most noise as a vertical weapon and exceptional ball tracker.

Franklin is a typical fantasy WR2 with massive ‘boom’ upside– think of a suped-up Gabe Davis with more natural receiver talent and consistency. The former Duck is a day-one impact player who fantasy managers can get at the end of the first round. If he lands in Buffalo or Kansas City — watch out.

The Oregon product may end up at WR4 before rookie dynasty drafts kick off.
