The NFL Players Association was unable to come to terms on an agreement that would push back the league trade deadline, leaving Oct. 16 as the last day teams can make trades. We break down the fantasy implications.

The NFL Players Association was unable to come to terms on an agreement that would push back the league trade deadline, leaving Oct. 16 as the last day teams can make trades, according to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports. The Oct. 16 deadline falls after Week 6 of the regular season. The NFL is not known for a frenzy of action at the trading deadline, but some big deals have gotten done in recent years.

Analysis: The NFLPA was working on a number of rule changes, but it appears as if they won't take effect in 2012. In terms of the trade deadline, it probably won't have a huge effect on how many deals get done this fall. Teams interested in making deals Carson Palmer, Randy Moss and Marshawn Lynch are among the biggest names that have gotten traded over the last few seasons. A few disgruntled stars are sure to land on the block this year as well, regardless of the deadline.
