Top 10 Fantasy Football Team Names

Outside of the actual fantasy football draft, one of the most fun things to do with your team is to give it a fantastic team name. You may just simply have, “Your Name” followed by “Team”, but what fun is that? A witty and clever team name can stand out to your friends and have you snickering every time you open up your league dashboard.

What to call your team is a tough decision. You’ve heard of countless team names that make you say, “Why didn’t I think of that”? Well, who says you can’t use them?

Just because someone from the opposite end of the country came up with a name you wish you had thought of doesn’t mean you can’t use it for your team. It’s still a fantastic team name, and the last time I checked, it’s not illegal to steal someone’s fantasy team name.

There are multiple ways to go about deciding what your team should be called. Maybe you’re a perennial fantasy champion and you want your team name to reflect your dominance. Maybe you’re the kind of guy who enjoys a good pun every now and then and wish to use a player’s name in a clever way. Or maybe you’re known as the big bad tough guy around your league and want something like Lesnar’s Hammer Fists as your name.

However you go about it is totally up to you, but the following slides will take you through 10 fantasy team names for the 2013 season. Yes, you may use them if you wish, even though you didn’t come up with them.

10 - Orton Hears a Who

Kyle Orton may need a Who to come along and deal an injury to Tony Romo in order to see the field. It’s a long shot, but I bet you never believed anything like Who’s existed until Dr. Seuss opened your eyes to them.

Dez Bryant is a big and physical receiver who has brought glory to his fantasy owners, and The Walking Dead is one of the most watched programs on television. You never know what’s going to happen next, but at some point, it’s going to get crazy.

6. Ridley's Believe It Or Not

I especially like this one because when you think of the New England Patriots, you don’t think major fantasy points from the running backs. But believe it or not, they have one of the highest rushing touchdown totals in the NFL.

2. Foster: Australian for Touchdown

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Arian Foster has been a high fantasy draft pick for multiple years in a row. At approximately no. 2 overall, if you’re able to land him, this is a perfect team name -- a bigger name than most cans of beer; a bigger name than most total fantasy points at the position. Perfect.
