Di Resta is a good option.

Although I think his racecraft is no better than Rosberg's one can't argue with his consistent multi-year domination of Massa which is Alonso like and does indicate a high natural speed. As for Williams they could always ask Massa to reconsider and stay if they needed a big name or loan Button for a year. Wehrlein has not shown he is ready for prime time yet.
Wehrlein with Stroll, a rookie. Williams could languish at the bottom end of the WCC chain!
There is a chance Merc could broker a deal for another driver to go to Williams ( for free even? ) It could be that they pay the dues of another driver or supply one already on their books. I know it will get stick here, but Di Resta is a very capable driver and is still on Merc books. Maybe Williams would not choose him in normal times, but if he came free?
The point is they need an experienced driver in place of Bottas as Stroll being a rookie, will be possibly weak in 2017. Hence, a strong team mate is required for Williams or they will be languishing close to the bottom of the pecking order!
