php – Placing store and update logic in Laravel 8 form request

I want some opinions about my code that implements store and update for a Laravel 8 form request. The make function is for storing the data and the update function is for updating the data.

<?php

namespace AppHttpRequests;

use AppModelsAdmin;
use IlluminateFoundationHttpFormRequest;

class AdminRequest extends FormRequest
{
    /**
     * Determine if the user is authorized to make this request.
     *
     * @return bool
     */
    public function authorize()
    {
        return true;
    }

    /**
     * Get the validation rules that apply to the request.
     *
     * @return array
     */
    public function rules()
    {
        if (request()->isMethod('post')) {
            $rule = 'required';
        }


        if (request()->isMethod('put')) {
            $rule = 'sometimes';
        }

        return (
            'name' => ('required'),
            'email' => ($rule, 'email', Rule::unique('users')->ignore(optional($this)->admin)),
            'password' => ($rule, RulesPassword::defaults(), 'confirmed')
        );
    }

    public function make()
    {
        $data = $this->validated();
        $data('email_verified_at') = now();

        return Admin::create($data);
    }

    public function update($admin)
    {
        $data = $this->validated();
        $data('email_verified_at') = now();

        return $admin->update($data);
    }
}
