Week 9: Franklin continues his uber-productive 2023 campaign with eight catches for 99 yards against Utah in the Ducks' 35-6 triumph. Franklin caught his Pac-12-leading ninth TD but dropped another two passes, bringing his season total to seven. Some heading into the February Combine and the 2024 NFL Draft might focus on this as an issue. Remains to be seen.
Week 8: Franklin caught four passes for 79 yards. For the first time since Week 3, Franklin did not have a TD catch. He also dropped a pass.
Week 7: Franklin grabbed eight more catches in Oregon's first loss of the season, to Washington, 36-33. He totaled 154 yards on those grabs (19.3 average) and a TD, with a long of 49 yards. Even though he had one drop, his splendid performance in such a high-profile matchup ensures Frankin moves up in the estimation of NFL scouts and GMs.
Week 6: DNP — Oregon had its bye week.
Week 5: Another big day for Franklin in Oregon's 42-6 beatdown of Stanford. The WR caught all seven targets for 117 yards and another two TDs. He has seven touchdown catches already in 2023.
Week 4: The wideout had a huge day in Oregon's 42-6 win over No. 19 Colorado. Franklin was targeted 10 times, catching eight passes for 126 yards (15.8 avg) and two touchdowns.
Week 3: Franklin caught four catches from QB Bo Nixon for 83 yards (20.8 average) in Oregon's win over Hawaii. He did drop a couple of passes and was kept out of the end zone for the first time in 2023.
Week 2: Franklin was targeted nine times. He caught six of them for 103 yards and a touchdown. It is Franklin´s second 1000yard game of the young season. Oregon won 38-30 over Texas Tech.
Week 1: Franklin had a huge season opener against Portland State with nine targets, seven receptions for 106 yards and two touchdowns, as Oregon put up an astounding 81 points, winning 81-7.
