Everyone knows that creating team names in fantasy football is half the fun of making a team. The name can’t be something simple like GoPatriots12, or TheChamp, or Winners, or my personal least favorite – Team [Insert Name Here] (ex. Team David). The name has to be fun and it needs to be relevant to football. So, without further ado, here are some creative fantasy football names.
Forgetting Brandon Marshall: Play on words from the movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall but replacing it with Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall of the Miami Dolphins.
Corn on the Kolb: Quarterback Kevin Kolb has himself a new team in Arizona so honor him with his own team name. Corn on the Schaub (for Matt Schaub) also works.
Little Foot Soldiers: This name comes from Wes Welker’s press conference during last years’ playoffs (click here if you haven’t seen it) when he was throwing in random foot references. Patriots fans should enjoy this one.
The McClusterf**k’s: In honor of Kansas City’s RB/WR Dexter McCluster.
The Texas Chainsaw Massaquoi: Cleveland Brown’s receiver Mohamed Massaquoi may not bring you much fantasy football value, but he brings you awesome fantasy football team names.
Revis and Butthead: A fun play on words with Jets shutdown cornerback Darrelle Revis and the Mike Judge animated series Beavis and Butthead.
The Jersey Leshoure: Even though Detroit Lion’s rookie running back Mikel Leshoure is done for the season, you can still use him as part of your fantasy football team name.
Henne Nut Cheerios: This is easily the best you will get out of Chad Henne in fantasy football this season. (Another team name could be Henne Thing is Possible).
Whatchu Talkin’ Bout Hillis?: If you picked up Peyton Hillis last year, you may want to give him respect this year. If you can’t draft him you can at least involve him in your team name. (Another name could be The Hillis Have Eyes).
Welker Texas Ranger: This is the second time a Welker reference has made it onto this list, he’s fantasy football team-name gold!
Somewhere over the Dwayne Bowe: Does this one really need an explanation?
Bananas Foster: Tasty desert and a very fitting name considering Arian Foster went bananas last year.
Waka Flacco Flame: This one is perfect because it blends two polarizing people together.
Orton Hears a Who: By mid-season you can change your team name to Orton Hears a Boo.
Boldin the Beautiful: The only way to combine soap opera’s with football.
My Vick in a Box: A fun take on The Lonely Island video. (Submitted by Ryan Davis).
