Choosing a Fantasy Football Team Name

One of the best things in fantasy football is naming your team. Whether it’s for humor, competition, uniqueness, or any other reason, it’s always fun. There are many reasons why you should give your team a name rather than something boring like “Jake’s Magical Team”. It can create conversations among your league-mates. You’ll have a way better name stamped on a trophy when you win the league. Plus, if it’s a dynasty, you could use that name for multiple years. There are so many great fantasy football team names that it’s hard to choose just one. However, it makes it more fun reading some of the creative names that have been come up with. It’s even better when you create one yourself.

To make it better, you can make it a competition. At the end of the season, the team that’s voted to have the best team name wins a prize. This increases your competition inside the league which enhances the experience for everyone. You can even up the competition by doing player nicknames as well if your platform allows it. (Sleeper does). It allows you to up the trash-talking, the creativity, and the amusement. Finally, fantasy football is all about entertainment and enjoyment.

Here are the Fantasy Football Team Names Commandments

  1. Make it personal to you, after all, it should be something that people think of when they think of you. Me, I’m known for being a Star Wars lover.
  2. Never use a name you’ve used before.
  3. Try your best to be original or use one from the list below.
  4. Don’t use your actual name, birthday, or generic words.
  5. Make sure that the player or name applies to your team. If you don’t have Tom Brady on your team, your team name shouldn’t be “Dude looks like a Brady”.
  6. Make sure that fantasy team name looks good when it’s on the trophy of the league you win!
