Fantasy football can be frustrating, starting with the draft. No matter how much you prepare, one unexpected pick by someone else can cause you to throw your entire draft strategy out the window.

I imagine things can get even more complicated when you're an actual NFL player drafting other NFL players. In a recent appearance on Matthew Berry Happy Hour, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb dived into some of that first-hand frustration. He claimed his brother drafted him before he could draft himself.

Lamb ended up selecting Cincinnati Bengals wideout Ja'Marr Chase instead, but of course he had to make a post-draft trade to acquire his own services for his fantasy team. Lamb gave up Chase in that trade.

Now, you can never fault someone for betting on themselves, and you can't exactly blame Lamb's brother for betting on family with his draft pick. However, I think most of, if not all, of the fantasy football world outside of Dallas liked Chase more than Lamb from a fantasy perspective this year.

While Lamb does technically have more fantasy points this season, that's only true because of Chase's injury (Chase averages more fantasy points per week than Lamb). So technically, Lamb's trade has been fruitful so far, but only because of an unpredictable injury – and that might change by season's end.

Still, on top of being motivated to perform on the field in real life, Lamb now has the extra motivation to perform for his own fantasy team as well.
