Best Fantasy Football Team Names
By Brian Rothstein
A fantasy football team name may not seem important, but any serious fantasy owner knows that’s not the case. Your team name defines who you are as a fantasy player and how seriously your team will be taken by the other league participants. A weak team name can lose you all your street cred. Your name should be a badge of honor you can display proudly when you brag to all your friends about your (hopefully) championship season. Picking a team name takes time and serious thought. Put some effort into it. Be creative. Don’t be lame and go with something generic like “Dave’s Destroyers” or re-hash old, played out names like “Somewhere Over Dwayne Bowe”. Trust me, you’re not being clever. We’ve heard it a thousand times.
So, you might ask, how do I pick a good team name? Puns are always a good start. Plays on words are worth a chuckle or two. Pop culture references are always entertaining, but don’t make them so obscure that nobody understands the joke. You don’t want to have to explain your team name to people. But the real winner? Innuendo. And then if you can combine innuendo with a pun? That’s team name gold right there. Let’s take a look at some of the better names we’ve seen so far this year and in years past.
A Mingo Ate My Brady
Do the Sankey Leg
Hyde Yo Kids, Hyde Yo Wife
It Ertz When Eifert
Wilfork on the First Date
Ease It In, Don’t Forsett
These are just some good ones I’ve seen that will hopefully give you some ideas. Don’t copy any of these or steal names from other places. Be creative! Thinking of your fantasy football team name should be fun and rewarding. As you battle it out for the top spot, make your name the envy of your league. At the end of the year when you see your name in the winner’s circle and everyone’s looking up at you, make sure that they’re looking up at your team name too. Ensure that your team won’t be forgotten and will forever live on in glory at Head2Head.com.
