Since starting our new NFL weekly contest back in Week 3, at least one of us has hit on our anytime touchdown best bets each week!

Last week, BetSided's Reed Wallach hit with Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray at +175, putting him into the lead with Josh Yourish who got on the board with Dameon Pierce of the Houston Texans at +150 the week before.

Who's got a nose for the end zone in Week 5? Here are our "Sunday Six" selections for Week5 in the NFL, with the latest up-to-date odds available for each player.

Best Anytime Touchdown Picks For Week 5

Rhamondre Stevenson - New England Patriots vs. Detroit Lions

The game plan is going to be clear for the Patriots, who are starting Bailey Zappe in place of the injured Mac Jones, to establish the run. It helps that the Lions own the worst run defense in the NFL in terms of EPA per rush, so the team can lean on Stevenson, who has received more snaps than Damien Harris in every game since Week 1. 

In a game that may be higher scoring than expected, I like the Pats to get their running back in the end zone. - Reed Wallach

Adam Trautman - New Orleans Saints vs. Seattle Seahawks

Trautman has only four catches on the season, but the Seahawks are so bad against tight ends that Trautman still has value to score.

Seattle allows an NFL-worst 102 yards per game to the position and just surrendered 179 (!!) and two TDs to TJ Hockenson last week.

At +900, I love Trautman's chances to take advantage of the easy matchup. He saw over 64% of the snaps last week with Andy Dalton under center and was tackled inside the five-yard line. Dalton has a history of relying on tight ends in the end zone, and the best way to attack the Seahawks is through your tight ends.

It's a long shot, but Trautman has too much going in his favor to ignore the value he gives as my favorite Anytime TD scorer this week. - Joe Summers

Dallas Goedert – Philadelphia Eagles vs. Arizona Cardinals

The Eagles have tons of playmakers, but none might be more consistent than Dallas Goedert. He’s had a 20-yard catch in every game this season, and he’s destined for the end zone this week.

The Eagles set Goedert up on a tight end screen every week, and it ends up going for a big chunk. Goedert was close to scoring last week, but went out near the goal line.

If the Eagles get into the red zone, expect this play and for Goedert to get the job done. – Donnavan Smoot

Ben Skowronek - Los Angeles Rams vs. Dallas Cowboys

Ben Skowronek has started to become a weapon that the Los Angeles Rams are using on offense. He has at least two receptions in each game so far this season, and he’s averaging 11.7 yards per catch. It’s not a matter of if he’s going to score this season, it’s a matter of when, and I expect it’s going to be today against the Cowboys.

I still think this Dallas secondary can be had, and the Rams have the offensive prowess to expose them. If you’re looking for a dark horse bet to find the end zone on Sunday, none are better at their current price than Skowronek at +390.- Iain MacMillan

Tyler Higbee (+240) - Los Angeles Rams vs. Dallas Cowboys

Higbee is quietly off to a terrific start this season despite the Rams overall struggles on offense.

He leads the NFL in targets at the tight end position with 38, and is tied with Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs with 26 receptions. He’s also yet to score a touchdown despite the massive volume through four games.

Only 13 players in the entire NFL have more red zone targets than Higbee (6), and only five players have been targeted more inside the 10-yard-line. 

The sharps have been hitting the Rams’ all week, and I think we’ll see why today.
