RB: Adrian Peterson
RB: Ryan Matthews
WR: Dwayne Bowe
WR: Miles Austin
TE: Jermichael Finley

K: John Kasay
DEF: Houston

I do not think you need to do the move. I think you have strong enough RB depth to have Jones sit on your bench for 2-4 weeks. If I was to pick up someone it would be Murray. good luck!
help me please?

Most definitely Battle. Why? You have solid depth already. Benches and league size are shallow you need someone that will help you immediately. Murray only temp back.

Yeah, my vote is Battle as well. He should do better than most people think.

I would drop Jones and pickup Murray for this week, but be ready to dump him for Battle after this weekend.

Jones IMO has been a minor bust/under achiever since he was drafted. Look at his career stats, then tell me what you think he will do when he comes back on a gimpy stick. Heck another team in your league might release a player you want to pick him up.
