fantasy football team name

Depending on your personal level of wit and cleverness, honing in on the best fantasy football team names for your squad(s) can be either incredibly fun or painfully awkward.

It's kind of like that first day of a new semester in college, when the professor loops around the room and asks each student to share something about themselves: "Something unique or something you love to do". More than anything else, you don't want to be Captain Obvious, who when asked, insecurely responds with, "Um, I love to travel!" Oh do you now? That's so unique of you! I hate bathing on the beaches of Italy and exploring the pyramids of Giza!

Choosing a fantasy football team name is just like that. When your buddy who sits in the desk ahead of yours wraps up his answer, you best be ready to speak up.

These are 3 no-no's when selecting a team name:fantasy football names

  1. Using the same name you used in a prior season.
  2. Using a name that was already too overused three years ago (please stop using Beats by Ray) 
  3. Using your actual, birth name (Nick's Ninjas.... nah)
All three are off limits. The only thing being accomplished by doing any of the above, is letting your league-mates know that you, too, love to travel.

Don’t get it twisted, choosing a team name is a big deal. You live with your decision for six months, or longer if you broke rule #1. Similar to rooting for the Broncos all season, there’s a place reserved in your heart for The Golden Taints. Might as well get a good chuckle out of it.

This year, FantasyJocks is on a mission to automate the name-game for you in 2017. Not all of these names are laugh out loud funny, but the list is enormous, so I guarantee at least one or two of them will sink your submarine. And while we appreciate a good vulgar team name from time to time, we've tried to whittle the list down to the most creative ones we've seen over the years. I went ahead and highlighted a few of my favorites. So, without further ado, enjoy!
