Barber Out - Week 3 RB Sit/Start

Okay, so Marion Barber is out 1-2 weeks and he is my top RB so I'm in a bit of trouble this week at least.

I have Marshawn Lynch, but he's still suspended another game. So my two starting RB's have to be from this group (.5 PPR league):

Leon Washington (vs. Titans)
Lendale White (@ Jets)
Knowshon Moreno (@ Raiders)
Jamaal Charles (@ Eagles)

My league is pretty deep so the best RB's on the waiver wire are Justin Forsett, Justin Fargas, Patrick Cobbs, Lamont Jordan, Michael Bennett, Adrian Peterson the lesser, Larod Stephens-Howling, Deshawn Wynn, Xavier Oman, Brandon Jackson, etc. Basically, nothing.

Are any of those guys worth a pickup? I was going to drop Deion Branch for Mike Walker (because Troy Williamson is out for the season so Walker should be a starter) but given my emergency situation at RB should I drop Branch for one of these guys instead? I can't really see any of them doing much, except maybe Forsett as the year goes on if Julius Jones continues to disappoint. Any of them worth it? Or is there any other deep, deep sleeper that is completely unnoticed but could get some playing time? (Please, no suggestions like Tashard Choice, guys like that are long gone.)

Given my terrible options (both on my team and on the waiver wire), who would you start? I'm thinking Moreno and Leon Washington.

Any advice? (Other than the obvious, go cry and accept your loss this week)

Any help is extremely appreciated. Thanks in advance.
