FF: Would you trade Mahomes

Tony in Berlin : 9/15/2021 11:12 am
for Josh Allen and Barkley? I have Tom Brady as my other qb.
SimpleMan : 9/15/2021 11:13 am : link
Absolute no-brainer. It is a buy low on Allen and Barkley.
Brady is going to have a ridiculous season  
djm : 9/15/2021 11:13 am : link
if you need Barkley, yes i'd do that deal. Hopefully it's PPR?
I would accept that in a heartbeat  
Blue The Dog : 9/15/2021 11:17 am : link
Out of curiosity  
JayBinQueens : 9/15/2021 11:20 am : link
What would be your hesitation?
It‘s PPR  
Tony in Berlin : 9/15/2021 11:23 am : link
My hesitation is that I suspect Mahomes to have one of these unforgettable record-setting seasons. And even though a Giants fan I love watching him play (and score for my FF team). Nothing logical.
I just think you lose  
pjcas18 : 9/15/2021 11:41 am : link
some of Allen's value - do you plan to start him consistently over Brady?

If not, and Brady winds up your QB1 - then why bother to have Allen as your QB2.
I would do that trade  
GNewGiants : 9/15/2021 12:03 pm : link
then trade Allen.
I‘d start Brady or Allen depending in the matchup  
Tony in Berlin : 9/15/2021 12:04 pm : link
And I want a safety net at qb in case of injuries. I‘m in a very qb friendly league.
I would trade Mahomes for Barkley straight up  
PaulBlakeTSU : 9/15/2021 12:09 pm : link
whether I had Tom Brady or not (assuming a 1QB league). That you have Brady makes it an absolute no brainer.

That you're also getting Josh Allen makes it incomprehensible that you would even think about this.

If it's a 2QB league, you still do this trade in a heartbeat unless you have 4 RBs better than Barkley
I think it may be another tough week for Barkley.  
Kmed6000 : 9/15/2021 12:15 pm : link
My plan is to let this week play out and then go after Barkley for pennies on the dollar after the week. Barkley owners are probably freaking out right now.
Yes, no question  
sb from NYT Forum : 9/15/2021 12:28 pm : link
It is done  
Tony in Berlin : 9/15/2021 1:01 pm : link
Thanks for the advice
Is no one worried that Barkley's done?

A little bit. But even if he is, the trade is still relatively fair
I have Mahomes and Barkley on my team.....with Brady  
GiantBlue : 9/15/2021 1:44 pm : link
& Lamar Jackson.

I wouldn't trade Mahomes at all. He and Brady combined for 165 points in my league....of 283 points total.

It is a QB driven league and we can start two per week....but I wouldn't trade Mahomes. He is the best player in football.
Sounds like a league I want an invite to  
UConn4523 : 9/15/2021 1:47 pm : link
Yeah, I'm not sure I'd do this  
pjcas18 : 9/15/2021 2:05 pm : link
trade either.

Do you start 1 QB or 2?

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.
I dont think  
Straw Hat : 9/15/2021 2:37 pm : link
i would of done that trade. Allen has one good year, who knows if it was a fluke. Saquon hasnt done anything to show he is back. Not saying it would be an easy decline, but i dont think id do it.
Great trade  
allstarjim : 9/15/2021 3:48 pm : link
There's little doubt that you're going to win that one. Allen was my QB1 over Mahomes going into the draft anyway, and to get Barkley on top of that is a big win.

Make sure you bench Barkley this week. I'm probably benching him until week 4 but expect big things after that.
Asking a Giants forum  
GMen72 : 9/15/2021 10:43 pm : link
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.
Allen played the best D in the league  
UConn4523 : 9/15/2021 11:01 pm : link
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.
Allen may be a one year wonder  
allstarjim : 9/16/2021 3:19 am : link
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).
