* Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Staffordis projected to be the highest fantasy point scorer in tonight's game.

** At the beginning of the NFL season, when these projected fantasy football statistics were established, it was assumed that New Orleans running back Tim Hightower wouldn't be playing all season. Last week, when the Saints played the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tim Hightower played his first game since October of 2011. Given his 85 rushing yards and one rushing touchdown against the Bucs, there's every reason to believe he'll have a significant game tonight against the Detroit Lions.
