The NFL season has been full of unexpected anytime touchdown scorers so far. For example, Kyren Williams, Anthony Richardson, and Raheem Mostert lead the league in rushing TDs with three each. We missed on all three of our TD plays last week, largely due to Nick Chubbs’ season-ending injury and Jahmyr Gibbs still not reaching his projected snap count. We move on to Week 3 with three more ATTD plays providing us with enticing value. NFL Week 3 odds are explained below. Know what you’re betting before you bet on NFL player touchdown prop odds. You may click any of the odds in this post to navigate to the sportsbook to place a bet.

Raves vs. Colts Betting Odds

The Baltimore Ravens welcome the Indianapolis Colts at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, Sept. 24. Ravens odds show Baltimore is a spread favorite and on the moneyline. The Colts are projected as road underdogs across sports betting sites.

Zay Flowers ATTD ()

Zay Flowers has played just two NFL games and already appears to be the best wide receiver Lamar Jackson has ever had. Flowers has 15 targets thanks to his ability to create space from his defender. He’s averaged 3.6 yards of separation per route run, good for eighth-most among wide receivers.

Despite his wide receiver’s small stature, Jackson has favored the rookie beyond his other targets once inside the 20-yard line. Flowers has four red zone receptions (tied for second-most in the league) on five targets (tied for tops in the league). While he’s amassed an abysmal -6 receiving yards on those four catches, the usage is there for us to follow.

Indianapolis’s defense is incredibly impressive upfront and equally unimpressive in the secondary. It has the second-most sacks and the 10th-best pressure percentage in the league, while allowing the fourth-most passing yards. Opponents are averaging 8.5 air yards per attempt, a main reason the Colts have allowed four TDs to opposing WRs.

It may be tough to keep defensive ends DeForest Buckner and Kwity Paye at bay, but if the Ravens can do it, their wide receivers are in for a field day.

Cowboys vs. cardinals Betting Odds

The 2-0 Dallas Cowboys head west to take on the Arizona Cardinals at 4:25 p.m. ET on Sunday. Cowboys odds show Dallas is a spread favorite on the road and I like tight end Jake Ferguson to continue eating near the end zone. The Cardinals are 0-2 and massive home underdogs in Week 3.

Jake Ferguson ATTD ()

Jake Ferguson may not be a household name, but he is a red zone monster. He only has 11 targets on the season, but the Cowboys’ second-year tight end leads the league in red zone targets with seven. He also has five targets inside the 10, hauling in four of them for a reception and one TD. Simply put, he’s a boom-or-bust TD play each week, not someone to bank on racking up a ton of yards.

That’s fine. We only need him to hit pay dirt once against a Cardinals defense that allows the fourth-most targets to opposing TEs. Arizona hasn’t allowed a touchdown to a TE yet, but they have given up the third-most yards to the position. They also watched the Commanders and Giants waltz into the red zone a combined 10 times, tied for most in the league.

We’re getting better than 2-1 on our money to bet that the man receiving the most red zone targets will score against the defense allowing the most red zone trips. That’s easy math to me.

*At the time this article was written, CeeDee Lamb was +115 to score a TD on DraftKings, compared to -120 on most other books. Arizona has given up five receptions on five targets to WRs inside the red zone. If you can find that kind of line disparity, I’d lay a little bit on Lamb to score as well.

First TD Scorer Odds

saints vs. packers Betting Odds

Lastly, the New Orleans Saints take on the Green Bay Packers inside Lambeau Field at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday. Saints odds show New Orleans is a spread underdog and will be without goal-line back Jamaal Williams. I’m banking on Michael Thomas benefiting from his absence with a receiving TD.

Michael Thomas ATTD ()

Williams’ absence from this game certainly improves Thomas’s chances of scoring, but it’s only a part of the reason I’m targeting him. For starters, the Saints have effectively moved the ball downfield so far, reaching the red zone eight times in two games. While they’ve only scored three TDs in those instances, Thomas has enjoyed the bulk of the team’s usage nearer to the goal line. He’s currently tied for the third-most red zone targets with four, only managing to bring in one of those for a four-yard catch.

Saints QB Derek Carr needs to own some of the blame for his veteran WR’s inefficiency. He’s only tossed Thomas two balls that were recorded as catchable throws. Still, the usage rate is there for Thomas all over the field (17 targets on the season overall) and especially near the end zone.

Green Bay’s defense looked stellar against Justin Fields and Desmond Ridder, which means almost nothing when trying to project its performance vs. New Orleans. The fact that the Packers allowed two anemic passing offenses to record 424 combined passing yards isn’t exactly a notch in their belts. Jaire Alexander will likely spend this Sunday chasing Chris Olave all over the field, leaving the slightly more vulnerable Rasul Douglas in charge of Thomas. Let’s see how these Green Bay DBs handle a legitimate NFL receiving core.
