With back-to-back 4 touchdown games and three games this season of 370+ yards passing, Luck has been the hottest quarterback in fantasy this season. Baltimore is a stingy pass-defense, but the Titans were considered stingy too and look how Luck performed.
Stafford had a very solid Week 4 against the Jets despite Calvin Johnson having a down game. That is a great sign that the young quarterback has made a step forward in his growth. Against the Bills he will need to duplicate his performance for the Lions to have a shot. Look for the Lions QB to be a top QB option once again.

The Ravens allow the third fewest points to fantasy quarterbacks, but QB Andrew Luck is coming into his own and there is no defense that can stop him when he is playing up to his potential.
The Bills are just 18th against fantasy quarterbacks, Stafford is at home and should have a monster fantasy week.
