If you are in desperate need of a fill-in running back, the good news is that Peterson is not your only choice. Here is the skinny on three other guys who might still be available in your league:

Kenneth Farrow, San Diego Chargers. The undrafted rookie will take over as San Diego¡¯s leading man in the wake of Melvin Gordon’s hip and knee injuries.

Alex Carter Jersey Expectations should be tempered a bit with Farrow, too, because of his inexperience and because the Chargers may lean heavily on Philip Rivers and the passing game. But ESPN Chargers reporter Eric Williams said Farrow should ¡°handle the bulk of the workload¡± Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.

Tyrell Williams, San Diego Chargers, shoulder: It’s no secret that Williams is playing through a labral tear in his right shoulder, but he will continue to do so as long as he can be functional. So far, that has indeed been the case and Williams has been off the game status injury report for two straight weeks.

J.J. Nelson, Arizona Cardinals, knee: Nelson has produced a touchdown in each of the past two games and with Michael Floyd no longer a member of the Cardinals, there is one fewer competitor for catches.

While his volume hasn’t been exceptional, he provides an opportunity for the upside play. He appears on the injury report because of a knee issue, but after two limited sessions he returned to full practice Friday. His removal from the game status injury report indicates he will play.

DeAndre Hopkins, Houston Texans, hamstring: Hopkins has had disappointing fantasy numbers, but he’s still an exceptionally talented receiver whom fantasy owners may be considering this Sunday. His appearance on the injury report with a hamstring could be unsettling, but it appears to be minor. Held to limited practice sessions daily as a means of protection, Hopkins’ removal from the game status injury report tells us he will be on the field Sunday.
