Movie-Based Fantasy Team Names

Team names

The fantasy football draft is one of the greatest days of the year for a fantasy lover. The anticipation has been building since the end of last season and this year you hope to end the quest of the elusive championship trophy.

As you research players and positions, preparing yourself for draft day, don’t forget about what you want to call your future championship team.

Deciding what you want to name your team changes every year and is often based on what is happening currently around the world of sports, social network or national news.

The team name you choose can define your season as fantasy players go about picking a name in a variety of different ways.

Some people go with names that come across as threatening in hopes to scare the other team into underperforming. Others choose names that come across as humorous, showing they are all about the fun of fantasy football.

There are many, and I mean many, team names for one to chose from this year but by simply substituting in a player name into a well known movie title, one can make quite an amusing team name.

Before you is a list of the top 12 movie-based fantasy football names. Many of them are quite clever and could have the other players in your draft party wondering how in the world you came up with that. I would call that, the draft-day intimidation factor because if you had time to come up with such a witty team name, you must already know everything there is to know about the draft and your team is one too look out for.

What was that? Sounded like it went off the upright. No wait, it couldn’t have. That doesn’t exist for Walsh, or does it?

6. The Ryan King

Richard Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Most of us would say Rex Ryan is far away from the title of king but one can hope right? As long as Simba can find Nala in the end zone, they might be alright.
