With fall right around the corner, people who play a lot of fantasy football will be getting ready for the draft. However, before the draft even starts, a person faces a much bigger dilemma.
While it may seem pretty basic, finding the right fantasy football team name is important because it can show off individuality and even get a few laughs out of opposing managers. So the question is what makes for some great fantasy football team names?
One of the biggest trends when it comes to fantasy football team names is to have a play on a certain player’s name. Names such as the Garden of Weeden, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Cutler and Too Legit To Britt all are funny to use, especially if that particular player is on your squad. Since you do not know if you will have a certain player on your team until after joining the league, these types of fantasy football team names are usually reserved for after the draft.
If you are playing in a league that has managers from all over the country, having a name that reflects your area might be the way to go. Much like the actual NFL team names, people can in a way create their own expansion team to make things a bit more realistic. It is not as popular of a choice as to play on words with player names, but it does get the job done.
Finally, another common option people use is to tie the name in with a family member or close friend. These names usually do not have much to do with the NFL or football in general, but it still is very relatable for the manager. No one says that fantasy football team names have to be about the NFL, as long as the manager likes the name, it’s a good way to go.
No matter what route you choose when naming your team, the most important thing is to at least put a little bit of thought into it. No one wants to be known as the player in a league with a super generic team name.
