Toby Gerhart – Minnesota Vikings RB
It’s not hard to figure out why Gerhart is the top pickup this week. Adrian Peterson has a sprained foot, he’s currently sporting a walking boot and is unlikely to play this week. After AD went down in the second quarter against Baltimore, Gerhart was the feature back for the Vikings and looked good, running for 89 yards and a TD on 15 carries. Conventional wisdom suggests the Vikings shut down Peterson for the remainder of the season, meaning Gerhart is more than just a one week plug-and-play.
