Imagine the following situation:

Person A says to person B, that B will be the target of taunt/sneers/ridicule etc.
Is it possible to formulate the following sentence (regarding the word order)?

"You will often be made fun of."

or

"You often will be made fun of."


I know that it sounds like a dumb question, but as a German student I have still much to learn about the English language.

"You will often be made fun of."

The above sounds better for sure.

Adverbs of frequency usually go before the verb, not before the auxililary.
