If you’ve ever looked around the fantasy sports world, you’ve probably noticed that the names of fantasy teams can vary tremendously. Some people choose to go with boring team names like a regular NFL team name or the name of the city in which they live. There’s nothing wrong with this, but fantasy sports are all about customization.

You’re the owner of a team.

You draft the players.

You have a say in who stays and who goes.

So, you should put a little bit of time and effort into your team name and logo.

You can go a couple routes on this. You can just pick a cool name that you feel represents you, and then either create a logo, use a default image, or pull one off the internet.

Or, what many people do is come up with a play-on-words or pun of a current NFL player’s name. Some examples of the best ones that I’ve seen include:

  • Texas Chainsaw Massaquoi
  • Green-Ellis and Ham
  • Favre Dollar Footlong
  • Somewhere over Dwayne Bowe

Naming your team something like this can add a little more excitement and fun to the league. Here are a few that I’ve come up with over the years:

  • Belichick Yourself
  • Hesterectomy
  • MTV Cribbs
  • The Curious Case of Benjamin Watson
  • It’s not A. Toomer

You can see more over at FantasyTeamNames.com. They let users submit names, and other people can vote whether or not they like them.

I’d love to hear some of your fantasy team name ideas!
