25 Funny Fantasy Football Team Names
25 Funny Fantasy Football Team Names
In case you missed it, Isaac Comelli had a great piece about some fantasy football names. You can read it here. But why stop there? I decided to put together a list of 25 additional funny fantasy football names. I picked the brains of some of my friends, scoured some blogs, almost found Jimmy Hoffa. Okay, that last one didn’t actually happen, but this is a humor piece, bear with me.
Many leagues are now implementing punishment for the losing team each season. I say we extend that tradition to whoever comes up with the worst fantasy football team name. After all, isn’t the point of playing to have a good time with your friends, family and coworkers? Doesn’t part of that good time involve ridicule and one-upsmanship? Don’t let some owner get away with some terrible name. If you are that owner, then get in here, pick your favorite and make that other guy come up with something better.
One note, it is my personal opinion that your team name should reflect a player you have. It makes no sense naming your team “Too Legit To Britt” if you don’t have Kenny Britt. The exception to that rule would be if your name happened to feature “Britt” somewhere, like if your name is Brittany or last name is Britton.
I also fully admit that there are funnier folks out there than me, so in the interest of bringing you, our valued readers, the very best (you deserve it), I want to thank thechive.com, theframjak.com, hubpages.com, drodd.com, and fanduel.com for the suggestions. A few of these are my own; bonus points are up for grabs if you can figure out which ones!
You Had Me At Helu
What better way to start than by saying hello? Jonathan Lipnicki was the kid from Jerry Maguire. He’s 25 now, just throwing that out there.
Robert Griffin III is one of the most popular players in the NFL right now. If you don’t love Star Wars, come back from the dark side and use the force to inspire a new hope for your fantasy future.
I Plaxaccidentally Shot Myself
Plaxico Burress obviously didn’t mean to shoot himself, or part of his career, in the leg following a Super Bowl victory. Don’t let autodraft accidentally put this guy on your team, as he was placed on season ending injured reserve on Tuesday.
Cry Me A Rivers
The inconsistent play of Philip Rivers and his revolving door of wide receivers can be enough to make any owner break down.
2 Mannings, 1 Cup
If you don’t get the reference, then I’m jealous. I’m going to stay clean on this one, and just move on.
Rice, Rice, Baby
Ray Rice is one of the best running backs in the NFL. He is as cool as they come and as smooth as a baby’s face. This kid don’t play and cooks up the opposing D like a pound of bacon. Grab this VIP and put the opposition on ice.
The Playbook of Eli
Eli Manning has been a savior of sorts to the New York Giants, with miracle comebacks and a cannon of an arm. Two Super Bowl wins is a testament to his ability to ascend to the fantasy summit.
Red Hot Julius Peppers
One of the greatest bands in the last 20 years mashed up with one of the greatest defensive players of the last few years. Julius Peppers can make opposing offenses see red with his spicy play.
Ain’t Nothin But A Brees Thing
Usually whoever has Drew Brees is sitting pretty in their league. Grab him as your fantasy quarterback, and breeze into the fantasy playoffs like a true “G.”
Foster: Australian for Touchdown
Arian Foster is a touchdown machine. His game is as big as those gigantic beers from down under, which is where you’ll put your opponents if you land this running back.
Smells Like Tebow Spirit
One of the greatest songs in the last 20 years paired with one of the greatest
quarterbacks, um, people out there. That’s the formula for an excellent team name.
It wasn’t too hard to have this idea pop up. If you draft this short and speedy running back, you could be bringing some stiff competition to your league.
Pass Me Another Biermann
What goes better than football and cold brews? Nothing, that’s what! Added bonus, you can shout that anytime your team scores or your cup gets empty.
Granted, Burress has been used already, but c’mon, ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT. If you’ve not yet seen Arrested Development, go do that as soon as you finish this article. Works well as Burress’ career got held up by his incarceration.
Joe Flacco never ran from his critics, using those negative messages to motivate him to standing on the doorway of a Super Bowl win. Flacco made himself and went to space age heights and the Super Bowl victory. Baltimore Ravens fans hope that it won’t be just another one hit wonder.
I’m A Man, I’m Forte!
When Oklahoma State University coach Mike Gundy went off in his now famous tirade, I doubt he thought it ever would have gotten as big as it did. Matt Forte is the main man for the Chicago Bears. If you have Forte, run that name into the ground the way Forte runs down defenders.
Mike Ditka is larger than life. The man is football royalty. The size of his football resume speaks for itself. Further explanation is not needed.
Romo Oregato, Mr. Roboto
Despite all his critics, Tony Romo is a rock solid fantasy quarterback. You’ll be saying thank you when he nears the 5,000 yard and 25+ TD mark this season.
4th and 25 To Life
You wanted an Aaron Hernandez influenced name, this is the only one I’m shooting your way.
Eli Manning’s deep ball threat has big play potential all over him. Big plays equal big points. Draft this speedy wide receiver and cruise to some wins.
Dezed and Confused
While the moniker would have made more sense his rookie season, Dez Bryant's history leaves a trail of head scratching choices. Cowboys’ fans hope the confusion is long gone this season.
Sgt. Peterson's Lonely Hearts Club
Adrian Peterson must be really lonely. Who does Peterson have to help him out now that Percy Harvin is gone? If he had any support he could run across the universe, but it really just a hard day’s work as Peterson is the only thing that gets all the Minnesota Vikings fans' loving. To his credit he doesn’t publicly complain, but you can bet he is crying, waiting, hoping that the Vikings surround him with better support before he goes searching for a ring elsewhere.
Marshawn Lynch is a top 10 running back. Pair him up with some decent help and you could be doling out old West style beat downs on the competition.
According to the Mayo Clinic Agoraphobia is a type of anxiety disorder in which you avoid situations that you're afraid might cause you to panic. No doubt that opposing fantasy owners will panic when having to face Frank Gore. Send the competition some psychological trauma with this clinically awesome name.
