“Call Me Brady,” “The Touchdown Factory,” and “The Brees Knees” are just a few clever fantasy football names you might encounter in your league.
Why the fascination with naming fantasy football teams?
Whereas the winners of your fantasy league are typically hardcore fans who have spent considerable time poring over stats and projections, the folks who come up with great team names put their creativity on display. They show their wit and have some fun with it – playing FF the way it’s suppose to be played. The real serious fans might walk away with your league’s championship and most of the money, but the owners with great team names walk away with an outpouring of respect. A good squad nickname is a reflection of your own personal brand. Win or lose, if you have a funny selection, folks will compliment your choice and think better of you – well, maybe.
A lot of league competition takes place amongst work colleagues. Your choice for your team name probably isn’t the best arena to test whether your new VP likes a little vulgarity. With that in mind, here’s are some good options that will pass the work censors and receive the stamp of approval by your mother.
Mom Approved Fantasy Football Team Names
- Easy Breesy – Here’s another option for you with a little more risk: “Breesus, King of the Drews.”
- Marshawn of the Dead
- Dak to the Future
- I Gotta Thielen – Everyone is hoping Adam Thielen has a long, productive NFL career for NFL fantasy names sakes – the “feeling” play of words on his last name provides some solid options. Here’s another: “Hooked on a Thielen.”
- Darth Raider
- All I Do is Winston
- Luck Dynasty – Short and sweet. Hopefully, Andrew Luck will bounce back quickly from his shoulder injury.
- Hotel Odell Holiday Inn – Sure, the “Rapper’s Delight” reference here will likely be lost on Mom, but nothing offensive here and your team has a built-in theme song.
- Mariota Kart
- Robo Cobb
