I need a solid rb that will be great for second half of season. Can someone give me some advice?

currently in free agency there is Blount, pead, Ellington, Daryl Richardson, mendenhall, green-ellis, Bryce brown, Roy helu, I just need a rb that will be a spot start if my rb Adrian Peterson or Trent Richardson get hurt. Who should I get?

standard scoring...

qb: cam, rivers

rb: ap, Trent

wr: bowe, welker, amendola, m.brown,

te: j.thomas, cook

I rank them Ellington (the only rb with a chance without injury to another starter), then Brown and then Helu. The last 2 require injuries to be valuable and are really handcuffs. Just don't like the Pat rb situation now, and Vereen will most likely get lots of touchers when he returns.
