Two terrific options at WR land late in round 1

Where these players are taken in the actual draft becomes highly dependent on where they go in your draft. According to Kiper's mock, he has the Buffalo Bills taking Texas wide receiver Adonai Mitchell and the Kansas City Chiefs taking Oregon wide receiver Troy Franklin.

Both of these would be great picks if they actually happened and because of where these players landed, would be excellent fits on your dynasty roster.

Mitchell is still a bit raw, but after starting his college career at Georgia, he caught 55 passes for 845 yards and 11 touchdowns for the Longhorns this season. For the Bills, Gabriel Davis is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason and the team needs more weapons for Josh Allen if they are ever going to reach their ultimate goal.

Mitchell in Buffalo is a player I would jump all over in a rookie draft. But Troy Franklin going to Kansas City would be even better.

After the horrendous play the Chiefs got from the wide receiver position at times this season, there should be very few people who don't feel the Chiefs will add another wide receiver in the draft.

Rookie Rashee Rice has become a great option for Patrick Mahomes and his team, but Franklin would be an incredible addition to their roster.

In the last two seasons with the Ducks, the 6-foot-2 Franklin has caught 142 passes for 2,274 yards and 23 touchdowns. He would have the ability and level of talent to come in and become Mahomes' No. 1 wide receiver, reviving that offense and giving Mahomes the juice to be the No. 1 fantasy football QB once again, a spot some feel he lost this season.
