As we race toward August, Footballguys.com will look at one team per day with our extremely in-depth Team Reports and our quick-hitting Team Mood and Players We're In and Out On, where we check out the overall mood of each team's offense and let you know the players we are in on (because they are great values at the cost it takes to acquire them) and who we're out on (because they are too expensive and won't have a good return on that investment).
Here are all of the Team Mood and Players We're In and Out On articles:
Arizona | Atlanta | Baltimore | Buffalo | Carolina | Chicago | Cincinnati | Cleveland | Dallas | Denver | Detroit | Green Bay | Houston | Indianapolis | Jacksonville | Kansas City | Las Vegas | LA Chargers | LA Rams | Miami | Minnesota | New England | New Orleans | NY Giants | NY Jets | Philadelphia | Pittsburgh | San Francisco | Seattle | Tampa Bay | Tennessee | Washington

Baltimore, Team Mood
- Good - 2
- Neutral - 9
- Bad - 0
Staffers in a Good Mood
- Kevin Coleman: Lamar Jackson will put himself in the discussion for QB1 overall this season, and the return of J.K. Dobbins can elevate this offense to new heights.
- Christian Williams: With J.K. Dobbins back to full health at some point soon, the offense should return to the successful run rates before 2021.
Staffers in a Neutral Mood
- Jason Wood: Last year was an outlier, but the team should go back to what worked in 2019 and 2020. But is that enough to win a Super Bowl?
- Sam Wagman: Lamar Jackson isn’t signed beyond the season, J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards are still working their way back, and Rashod Bateman is the only worthwhile wide receiver.
- Andy Hicks: How Lamar Jackson plays is how this team fares in 2022.
- Justin Howe: We'll likely wind up throwing out most of their weird 2021, but it's hard to see much real improvement here.
- Jeff Bell: Injuries to the primary running backs create questions about production.
- Ben Cummins: Lamar Jackson is a former MVP yet struggled some as a passer last year. He's a great dual-threat, but the offense as a whole hinges on his passing ability.
- Jordan McNamara: They have an answer at quarterback in Lamar Jackson they need to lock down to a contract. This is a good front office and good coaching staff.
- Ryan Weisse: This is a largely unproven group outside of Lamar Jackson and Mark Andrews.
- Chad Parsons: Lamar Jackson is one of the preeminent playmakers in the NFL, but fueling a bevy of producers around him has not been his calling card.
