Anytime Touchdown Player Prop Picks
National Tight Ends Day has come early! Check out Week Two Anytime Touchdown best bets below featuring solely tight ends. In this prop, the goal is to select a player who scores at least one rushing or receiving touchdown at any point in the game (passing touchdowns do not count for QBs).
George Kittle Anytime Touchdown (+225 PointsBet)
From Week 13 to 18 last season (when Brock Purdy took over), George Kittle easily led the 49ers at eight red zone targets and seven touchdowns. That’s on pace for 19 touchdowns, which would break Rob Gronkowski’s single season tight end record. The Rams allowed the seventh most touchdowns to tight ends last year, and their secondary sans Jalen Ramsey is absolutely abysmal this year. Kittle didn’t find the end zone in Week One, but he was nursing an injury and still collected six targets. This is a classic Kittle explosion game.
Durham Smythe Anytime Touchdown (+400 PointsBet)
Mike Gesicki led Miami in red zone targets and inside the ten-yard-line targets last year, and Smythe now steps into this role. Per Scott Barrett of Fantasy Points, the Notre Dame product led all tight ends in snap share while ranking second in route share and tenth in target share during Week One. That’s incredible involvement for Smythe.
New England’s elite secondary and Bill Belichick will focus on Tyreek Hill, so Smythe should escape the red zone chaos unscathed for a decent look. This Patriots defense also allowed the second most touchdowns to tight ends last season, so look for Smythe to find the end zone.
Hunter Henry Anytime Touchdown (+340 PointsBet)
The offense is humming under new offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien, as Mac Jones ranked second in 20+ yard pass attempts in Week One (per PFF). Henry ranked third in target share last season behind Stevenson and Meyers (now in Las Vegas), and he continued his presence against Philadelphia. The veteran tight end snagged five receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown.
Miami’s secondary struggled heavily last year, including allowing the fourth most touchdowns to tight ends. That’s not expected to change until Jalen Ramsey suits up. Finally, the Dolphins stout run defense will deter New England from running the ball in the red zone.
Cole Kmet Anytime Touchdown (+320 PointsBet)
Last season, Kmet led Chicago in inside the ten-yard-line and red zone targets. He notched two red zone targets against the Packers, which is on pace for 34 across the season. That doesn’t seem massive, but this mark would have paced the entire NFL last year! His reliable hands and catch radius help neutralize Fields’ accuracy issues – a necessity. Fields also loves his first read, which should behoove Kmet in the red zone.
Evan Engram Anytime Touchdown (+280 DK)
The Chiefs allowed the most red zone passing touchdowns last year along with the fifth most red zone completions. Plus, they allowed the fifth most touchdowns to tight ends. With Chris Jones back on the defensive line and Jaguars guard Brandon Scherff dealing with an injury, it will be difficult for Jacksonville to run the ball in the red zone. Factor in Kansas City’s desire to mostly play man coverage, and hyper-athletic tight end Evan Engram has the matchup to score.
