32 Clever Fantasy Football Team Names

32 clever fantasy football team names

Naming your fantasy team is a crucial part of your season. Your team name is how other owners in your league will see you for the entirety of the league year. Here are some clever fantasy team names that I came up with. I came up with one team name that had to do with each team, and they're listed in no particular order. By the end of this, you'll probably be thinking I'm a ridiculously unfunny, corny loser, but maybe, just maybe, you'll find something you like.

Aug 9, 2012; Chicago, IL, USA; Chicago Bears defensive end Julius Peppers (90) on the sidelines during the game against the Denver Broncos at Soldier Field.  Mandatory Credit: Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIREBears: Julius Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. Julius Peppers... One of the all-time great albums by The Beatles. You do the math.

Lions: The Fairley Godparents. You got defensive tackle Nick Fairley, then you've got the concept of fairy godparents. The thought of a little fat Nick Fairley flying around granting wishes brings joy to my heart.

Dolphins: Bush It Real Good. "Push It" by Salt-n-Pepa is one of the greatest songs our great nation has ever been blessed with. Reggie Bush's last name happens to rhyme with push.

Jaguars: Knighton Shining Armor. Terrance Knighton, straight out of my own alma mater of Temple University, is one of the more underrated defensive lineman in the league right now. If the "Knight In Shining Armor" relation wasn't immediately obvious to you, you've got some problems.

Jets: Call Me Maybin. The timeless irritant of a song has taken the world by storm, so we might as well start using it in our fantasy team names. You may not know who Aaron Maybin is, but I can guarantee that Jets, Bills, and Penn State fans do.

Chiefs: Jamaal Charles' Angels. Here's one for the ladies. We got one of those Wheel of Fortune "Before & Afters" going on with running back Jamaal Charles and the classic television show Charlie's Angels.

49ers: Straight Gold, Homie. The Niners just acquired wide receiver Randy Moss this offseason, and with Randy comes his wonderfully entertaining off-field quotes. One of his most famous was "Straight cash, homie." Now that he's on a team named after gold miners, I've remodeled the phrase.

Broncos: Last Train to Dumervil. Ever hear "Last Train to Clarksville" by The Monkees? Maybe you're too young.

Falcons: Matt Ryan's Song. Like the classic football movie "Brian's Song," but way less sad.

Bengals: The Dandy Andy Daltons. This one actually has a bit of a negative connotation, so I guess it's more for Bengal haters than actual Bengal fans.

Patriots: The Wes Walkers. Any Game of Thrones fans? White walkers... Wes walkers. Maybe it's a bit of a stretch.

Cowboys: The Holy Romo Empire. Roman? Romo? You get it.

Browns: All About The Travis Benjamins. Like the movie/song/saying, but with wide receiver Travis Benjamin's first name thrown in there.

Rams: Meet the Brockers. I'm sure quite a few quarterbacks will be introduced to Rams' rookie Michael Brockers this season, and then you've got the movie Meet the Fockers.

Giants: The Book Of Eli. Same name as the movie, but Eli Manning is the one writing history these days.

For whatever reason, most of the people in my fantasy leagues don't create clever names around team names, but rather they make team names to make fun of their friends in the league...

I always go with 'Huge Breastons" in honor of Steve Breaston, who played for my favorite team in the world. The Michigan Wolverines!

I usually stick with the same team name (Schmittheads) for all the sports I play but for football this year, I went with Fear_the_Stache in honor of Jeff Fischer.

Coming up with team names was always my least favorite part of playing Fantasy Football!

Love this story idea. Some of these are super obscure, but somehow I always struggle to come up with good fantasy team names.
