The best case scenario for Hill from a fantasy prospective would be if Stafford misses time due to injury. If Stafford is healthy, you can expect that Hill will see minimal time this season. In certain games, if Detroit is leading by a lot in the 4th quarter, the Lions may allow him to finish out the game.
As with the last two seasons, the worst case for Hill is that Stafford plays a full 16 games. If that happens, Hill is looking at another season with minimal fantasy output.
Shaun Hill has been backing up Matthew Stafford for the last three years. But with Stafford playing two full seasons as the stater, Hill has thrown just 16 passes in his last 32 games. If Stafford is healthy, Hill will not do much more except close out games that Detroit is leading in the 4th quarter.

2012 Game Summaries
Week 3 - Shaun Hill came in to relieve the hampered Stafford, and more than filled in. On Hill’s first drive, while down by 14 points and 1 minute left, Hill quickly led the Detroit offense down the field and threw a perfectly placed slant to Calvin Johnson. Hill smartly targeted Megatron multiple times during the Lions comeback. On the final play of regulation, with seemingly no hope for a win, Hill heaved a desperation-“Hail Mary” pass towards the end zone. The ball was batted by a Titans linebacker and squarely landed in the arms of Titus Young. This resulted in a tie game, and sent the teams to overtime. Being the starting quarterback for numerous years in San Francisco, it’s no surprise that Hill was effective, and is more than capable should Stafford miss significant time.
