I don't think Luck piles up the stats in this one like he will in most of his games, but his consistency last season is the reason you drafted him so high and the reason I'm not too worried even with the tough matchup.

Houston on the road is a problem, while Smith in general just isn't a guy to tie your week to on a regular basis.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Luck could get stifled here on the road against a great defense, but Luck isn't held in check very often

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

 
If you own Luck in fantasy leagues, you almost have to play him regardless of matchup. I would stay clear in Daily Fantasy Leagues, the Bills allowed the 3rd fewest points to fantasy quarterbacks last year. There will be cheaper quarterbacks with much better matchups.
