Best Anytime Touchdown Scorer Picks for Week 2

  • Darius Slayton
  • Jahmyr Gibbs

Darius Slayton Anytime Touchdown Scorer

People seem to forget about Darius Slayton, but he's still one of the top pass-catchers for the New York Giants. 

In last week's disastrous game against the Cowboys, Slayton was tied with Darren Waller for the most targets on the Giants with five. 

If he continues to get that much love, he's going to start finding the end zone and what better spot to get his first of the season then against one of the worst teams in the league in the Arizona Cardinals? 

You gotta love this price at +330 odds. -- Iain MacMillan

Jahmyr Gibbs Anytime Touchdown Scorer

The Seattle Seahawks were torched on the ground in Week 1 by Kyren Williams and Cam Akers, allowing three rushing touchdowns in a 30-13 loss. 

Now, they face the team that had a running back lead the NFL in rushing scores last season in the Detroit Lions. 

Jamaal Williams is gone, but David Montgomery found the end zone in Week 1 for Detroit. Now, I’m looking to his counterpart, rookie Jahmyr Gibbs, to punch one in on Sunday. 

Gibbs thrived in limited touches against the Kansas City Chiefs, turning seven carries into 42 yards while catching both of his targets for 18 yards. 

With the Lions having 10 days between games, I imagine they’re looking for even more ways to get Gibbs the ball in space. I love taking him to score against a weak Seattle run defense. -- Peter Dewey
