Tim Tebow could request a trade from the Jets if he does not win a starting role this season, according to reports. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tim Tebow could ask the New York Jets for a trade after the season if he does not win the starting quarterback job over Mark Sanchez, a source tells Gary Myers of the New York Daily News. Tebow is signed with the Jets through 2014. He rushed five times for 11 yards and did not attempt a pass in nine snaps during Sunday's win over the Buffalo Bills.

Analysis: The report does not mean a ton from a fantasy football perspective. If you really need something to read between the lines, then the fact that it came out at all could suggest that Sanchez is strengthening his grip on the offense. In any case, Tebow is not a fantasy option in New York, nor will he be anywhere else unless he somehow wins a starting role.
