After a playoff win last season and 31 points in Week 1, it looked like the Jacksonville Jaguars were going to run away with the AFC South behind a great offense. Then, they failed to score a touchdown in Week 2 and only put up 17 points on Houston last week. Trevor Lawrence and the Jaguars need a bounce back against the Falcons.
Atlanta’s offense wasn’t exactly on fire with just nine points last week, so we’ll back the Jags with our anytime TD scorer bets for Sunday.

Falcons vs. Jaguars anytime TD picks
- Zay Jones +295
- Calvin Ridley +140
- Tank Bigsby +425
Jones is questionable with a knee injury and missed the last game. However, if he does play, he’ll be getting red zone targets. Even in two games, Jones has already seen five red zone targets and if he could have kept his toes down on a few of them he’d already have multiple scores instead of just one touchdown. The target volume is enough to justify the risk with Jones.
Ridley also only has one touchdown this year, and he’s also seen five red zone targets which is a big number at this point in the year. Ridley is first on the team in targets with 26, but hasn’t had great hands and is only third in receptions and tied for first in yards. Lawrence needs Ridley to be reliable, he’s not the type of receiver that will get iced out after a few drops, so I trust the targets to keep coming and more big plays to follow.
The name is fitting for the way Tank runs. He’s physical and that is an advantage near the goal line where he is the main running back. Travis Etienne Jr. handles the rest of the field, but Bigsby already has two touchdowns on only nine carries. Three of his nine carries have come in the red zone.
