Jed Lamb (born 19 October 1992) is an Australian rules footballer who plays for the Carlton Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL). He was recruited from the Gippsland Power in the TAC Cup with the 21st selection in the 2010 AFL Draft and played with the Sydney Swans from 2011 to 2013. However at the end of 2013 season he left the Swans to play for cross town rivals the Giants in a bid to get regular games.
