If you like quarterbacks that throw for 300 yards and at least 2 touchdowns, Luck is the guy for you.
Atlanta's defense is bad and the Lions are probably getting Calvin Johnson back for their London game. All signs are pointing to Stafford having an excellent fantasy day.

The Steelers are 4th against fantasy quarterbacks the last 3 weeks, but those opponents were Houston, Cleveland and Jacksonville. I expect Luck to be his normal self, even in front of the tough Pittsburgh crowd.
The Falcons are 13th against fantasy quarterbacks the last 3 weeks, but Stafford should still be a QB1 against this struggling defense.
