The real-life NFL trade deadline generally comes and goes with little fanfare, but fantasy owners do need to at least consider the possibilities.

By Tuesday afternoon it will be all over, and most likely nothing will happen to New York Jets clipboard-holder Tim Tebow, St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe or others mentioned in fantasy-relevant rumors. Still, while we should expect little news, the Rams' situation bears a bit more scrutiny, because even if Jackson stays put, playing time is hardly assured.
