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
Want a brief overview? Here it is:
- Mood - Neutral
- We're In On at Cost - WR Jakobi Meyers
- We're Out On at Cost - No One
Want a longer breakdown of how it's going in New England? Read on.
New England, Team Mood
- Good - 2
- Neutral - 7
- Bad - 2
Staffers in a Good Mood
- Ben Cummins: The Patriots offense ranked ninth in DVOA last year, and Mac Jones is about to take a major step forward in year two.
- Dave Kluge: Mac Jones exceeded expectations as a rookie. Although no huge moves were made this offseason, another year in New England should help his development.
Staffers in a Neutral Mood
- Jason Wood: Not much changed in the offseason other than Josh McDaniels leaving, which may or may not be seismic.
- Chad Parsons: Mac Jones is capable enough of running an NFL offense. Questioning the ceiling is valid, but the floor is decent.
- Kevin Coleman: Josh McDaniels will be tough to replace, and the Patriots seem to be going through a scheme change on offense.
- Jeff Haseley: The Patriots are on the verge of big things in a packed division and conference. They'll have to be great to make the playoffs.
- Andy Hicks: Losing Josh McDaniels is key, especially for a second-year quarterback. The development of Mac Jones determines everything here.
- Jeff Bell: Faith they will utilize personnel effectively, borderline impossible to project who for fantasy, especially in the passing game.
- Ryan Weisse: They lost McDaniels and are choosing not to replace him. We should see improvement with Mac Jones, but the coaching change could slow that down.
- Sam Wagman: The coordinator issues are worrisome, particularly when you consider the options. Mac Jones is dependable, though.
Staffers in a Bad Mood
- Christian Williams: Losing McDaniels and having a coordinator competition to determine who calls plays will be tough, no matter the personnel.
- Alfredo Brown: The loss of Josh McDaniels could be big. The idea of Joe Judge or Matt Patricia calling plays is terrifying.
