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

Staffers in a Good Mood
Staffers in a Neutral Mood
- Christian Williams: Luke Getsy should put the offense in a much better position than Matt Nagy, but the weapons outside of Darnell Mooney and Cole Kmet are unproven, at best.
- Ben Cummins: Justin Fields provides stability and some excitement to an offense that needs to take a step up from their 26th ranking in DVOA last season.
- Dave Kluge: The Bears have surrounded Justin Fields with players who he can hope to establish a long-term rapport with while sticking to a multi-year plan.
- Sam Wagman: There has never been any secret that the Bears are building for 2023. There are pieces in place for this team. Justin Fields can take another step forward.
- Jeff Haseley: There is potential in Chicago, but the weapons are few and far between. First things first, Fields has to show marked improvement.
- Kevin Coleman: The offense is much better with Getsy, and we should see Fields take another step in his development. The issue lies with the lack of offensive playmakers.
- Justin Howe: Garbage in, garbage out after a toothless 2021 campaign. I don't think it was all Matt Nagy holding back this stripped-down group.
- Ryan Weisse: You can say bad, but can it be much worse than last year? They were bottom-10 in total yards and ranked 27th in points scored.
- Jordan McNamara: You have to give a new front office and coaching staff with a second-year quarterback some leeway.
Staffers in a Bad Mood
- Jason Wood: One of the worst rosters in the league and facing a multi-year complete rebuild under new leadership.
- Craig Lakins: The 2019 Jets gave second-year Sam Darnold more weapons to work with than Justin Fields has at his disposal.
- Chad Parsons: Justin Fields was horrible last season from a historical standpoint, and the team did little to help the young quarterback in the offseason around him.
- Andy Hicks: How to destroy a young quarterback. After struggling with what he learned in year one, erase the hard drive and try again.
- Jeff Bell: The Bears could deliver a QB1, RB1, WR1, and TE1. Or they could have the least fantasy value in the NFL.
- Victoria Geary: The Bears could be one of the worst offenses in 2022. The staff needed to invest in Fields but failed at surrounding him with better pass-catchers.
