Many people like to use the best player metric and I think Mahomes is the best player in the trade.
yes Barkley has the potential to be a game changer, and Allen being in the trade softens the blow of trading Mahomes, but how much is your team improving and when is Barkley startable? Clearly he's not yet.
So, are you starting 44 year old Tom Brady or Josh Allen or both?
If still Tom Brady you traded Mahomes for a backup QB (or insurance at QB) and backup RB.
I'm not saying don't trade Mahomes but if you don't get the best player in the trade it should be clear by trading a player like Mahomes how your team has improved. I'm not clear on that with this trade for Tony.
about trading for Barkley is like asking a fat kid if he wants cake. Are you willing to wait half a season to see a productive Barkley? With this Oline, he may struggle to be a top 10 fantasy RB all year. Not to mention, Allen may be a one year wonder...he looked terrible last week.
Without knowing your total RB situation, impossible to analyze the trade. I'd just trade Brady for a RB and keep Mahomes.
I think he’s earned a pass. But I don’t make this trade because you can’t start both QBs so if I’m trading Mahomes I want a monster RB or WR or a package of 2 non-QBs that are both upgrades to your starters.
Like I might discover the secret to anti-gravity and invent the flying family car.
As long as he's healthy he's going to be terrific. So much of his value is in running with the football. Plus his arm is probably the strongest in the NFL, he's going to get his share of huge plays. He's practically the Bills' goalline back.
Allen is an absolute stud and there is a decent enough chance he'll be QB1 overall in fantasy this year (again).
