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

Tampa Bay, Team Mood
- Good - 13
- Neutral - 3
- Bad - 0
Staffers in a Good Mood
- Chad Parsons: There is plenty of continuity with the key pieces back from 2021. An offense led by a yet-to-erode Tom Brady is always a quality start to an offense.
- Jeff Bell: Still Tom Brady, and still plenty of talent.
- Jordan McNamara: Bringing Tom Brady back automatically puts you on a good track.
- Sam Wagman: They still have many pieces, the defense is mostly intact, and most importantly, Brady is back.
- Kevin Coleman: While the team will miss Chris Godwin at the beginning of the season, they still have Tom Brady, who will lead a pass-friendly offense in 2022.
- Jason Wood: Brady returned, and whatever tension between him and Arians is a thing of the past.
- Dave Kluge: The team came up short in the playoffs last season but is looking for another deep playoff run in the twilight of Tom Brady's career.
- Zareh Kantzabedian: All starting wide receivers and running backs tied to Tom Brady must be rostered.
- Ben Cummins: Tom Brady easily could’ve been the MVP last season and returns to lead another top-ten offense.
- Andy Hicks: Tom Brady remarkably still looks good and most of the offensive pieces return to take Tampa Bay on another playoff run.
- Alfredo Brown: Any offense led by Brady should have a strong fantasy season.
- Craig Lakins: Tom Brady somehow continues playing at an elite level and elevating the players around him.
- Jeff Haseley: As long as Brady is on the field, the team is in good hands. Tom Brady makes good receivers great and great receivers elite.
Staffers in a Neutral Mood
- Christian Williams: The absence of Godwin for the first part of the year combined with Gronkowski's retirement should ensure this is the worst supporting cast in the Brady era.
- Adam Wilde: Asking 44-year-old Brady to figure it out without Godwin for part of a season, and Gronkowski for a full season isn’t the recipe for success; although it will probably still work.
- Ryan Weisse: Brady will miss Gronk and won't have Godwin for a good part of the season. However, an offense with Brady, Evans, and Fournette will be just fine.
