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.
Bounty – The Quicker Motivater-Upper: We’re off to a good start.
Forgetting Brandon Marshall: Play on words from the movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall but replacing it with Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall of the Chicago Bears.
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 the 2010 playoffs when he was throwing in random foot references. Patriots fans should enjoy this one.
Belichick Yo Self Before You Wreck Yourself: Keeping on the Patriots theme. Can also be shortened to Belichick Yo Self.
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: Detroit’s running back Mikel LeShoure isn’t just good for being arrested, he’s good for fantasy names also.
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?: Hillis may have disappointed you last season if you drafted him, but that doesn’t mean we have to forget about him.
Welker Texas Ranger: This is the second time a Welker reference has made it onto this list, he’s fantasy football team-name gold!
Release the Gronken: No! Not the Gronken!
Somewhere over the Dwayne Bowe: Does this one really need an explanation?
Bananas Foster: Tasty desert and it’s something that Arian Foster can eat now that he’s gone vegan.
Waka Flacco Flame: This one is perfect because it blends two polarizing people together.
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.
99 Problems But A Britt Aint 1: Actually, Britt was a problem if you had him on your team last year when he was injured.
Romo Witten His Pants: Adding two Dallas Cowboys’ names to make one hilarious fantasy name.
Aaron Rodger’s Neighborhood: If Mister Rogers added a d to his last name and took up a career as a NFL quarterback.
Helu Hoop: You may not know if Redskins RB Roy Helu is going to start this season, but you do know he can provide good fantasy names. Others: Helu Copter, You had me at Helu and Helu, is it me you’re looking for?
Boston TE party: Mixing history with the Patriot’s love for tight ends.
Tebows before Hoes: Tim may not approve of this one.
Suh Tang Clan: Works even better in IDP leagues.
Jake’s Hurt Locker: He’s hurt because he may not get the starting job over Matt Hasselbeck.
Cruz Control: If you had Victor on your team last season, your fantasy team basically was in cruise control.
Red Hot Julius Peppers: For the Bears fans out there who enjoy rock music.
Magic Mike Wallace: Maybe if Wallace doesn’t get a contract completed, he can get a career in male stripping.
Golden Tate Bridge: I don’t have a comment for this one.
DeMarco Polo: I’m running out of names.
Scobee Snacks: Yeah, I’m definitely on the decline.
Sergio Kindle Fire: Nobody’s going to use that.
