Frankly, go for the guy you believe in. If it is 1QB this isn’t horrible value and Herbert certainly looks fantastic out there. Lamb is also significantly better than Hollywood imo. Though it is a risky move, it is not super hard to find a great QB if it’s only 1QB

There are only a few true positional advantages in this game, Mahomes is 1 of them. Pass

I don’t think it’s completely out of the question to say Lamb could be the most valuable piece in this deal by this time next season. Also, give me Herbert over Brown.

I think this is slightly the Mahomes side right now, but I don’t think it’s as big of a no brainer as everyone might say.

I don’t think it’s that crazy...

Lamb is going to be special in this league in my opinion.

So in a 1QB league, I actually think I’m taking this trade.

When you think about trying to trade for Lamb, it’s hard to imagine giving up less than the drop off in production from Mahomes to Herbert.

I know the Lamb owner in my league values him highly and honestly I can’t blame him. The kid is good.

How? Recent adp on this site, while just based on mocks, already has lamb over Mahomes. This league starts 8 rb/WRs (and up to 6 WRs), lowering the value of any 1 ‘positional advantage’ and increasing wr value in my opinion.

Calling this some insane overreaction/horrible trade makes no sense to me. I’d take the lamb side but can see arguments for both.
