Each offseason, fantasy footballers salivate over way-too-early player rankings and flock to clearly inaccurate fantasy football mock drafts in preparation of the next NFL season. They scratch and claw for that small pinch of an edge; they yearn for that random forum post with a collection of new sleepers and insider injury tidbits. But while clicking around for more projections and chomping on stale pretzel sticks, fantasy footballers realize they still have one step on the ladder of fantasy football team creation – a 2016 fantasy football team names!
Follow our lead and you, sir, will soon be a fantasy football legend. Whether you win or not is irrelevant, as the following funny fantasy football team names will carry you to fantasy football stardom in 2016.
Ranking our favorite 2016 Fantasy Football Team Names
50. The Sixth Wentz
Carson Wentz is bound to see dead people soon enough if that line doesn’t hold up.
Thomas Rawls is number one on your speed dial.
48. Ferris Bueller’s Day Goff
47. Stairway to Evans
It would do Mike Evans some good to listen to a little Zepp.
46. From Dusk till Marshawn
This one’s just here so I won’t get fined.
45. Pitch Burfict
Don’t expect a sequel.
44. Prosise, Ice Baby
Notre Dame’s C.J. Promise.. watch out for this kid.
43. Cry Me a Philip Rivers
Especially if you didn’t choose the side-armed chucker in fantasy last season.
Wonder how Odell Beckham would do as a gynecologist.
Maybe Matt Forte can protect this New York Jets offense from terrible play calls.
40. Terrance West-eros
The first of several Game of Thrones fantasy football team names and a subtle reminder to not sleep on forgotten Ravens (and former Browns) tailback Terrance West.
39. The Delanie White Walkers
Consistently feared by opponents and other 2016 fantasy football team names.
38. Brock O’s Modern Life
Modern in the fact that an inexperienced and possibly overrated 25-year-old backup quarterback (albeit to Peyton manning) gets $72 million handed to him.
37. A Tribe Called Wes
Still chugging along at 35 years old. Can Wes Welker still kick it?
If you’re a fan of Derek Carr to Amari Cooper, this one’s for you.
Or is it?
34. Gurley Bird Gets the Worm
Pluck him early in fantasy drafts or prepare for the worm.
33. Black & Eric Decker
Just storing touchdowns.
32. Dough Montana
A tribute to the one and only hefty lefty, Jared Lorenzen.
Could he surface from the cloudy bottom of the Jaguars depth chart?
I wonder who shows up this season following this appearance in our best 2016 fantasy football team names.
29. Kaepernick at Nite
Founded 1985, never to be found again.
28. DeFinding DeForester
And instead de-finding DeForest Buckner.
Now starring Josh Norman.
Mean, green, and a fantasy football machine.
Surrounded by a bunch of yoots.
Potentially very irritable.
22. Forsett it Off
One-hit wonder, again?
21. Abdullah Oblongata
Alligators aren’t the only ones who are ornery because of the medulla oblongata.
20. Golden Tate Warriors
Had enough yet? No? Alright, here’s footage of Draymond Green staying relevant.
19. Turn Down for Watt?
It’s usually a rhetorical question.
18. DeMaryius Targaryen
Never too much GOT, though did you know ‘Khaleesi’ was the 755th most popular name for a baby girl a couple years back?
17. Francis Langford Coppola
A tribute to The Godfather, you know Al Pacino is taking this name and drafting Bears tailback Jeremy Langford early this year.
16. Myles Jack of all Trades
Seriously, just read his scouting report.
15. King of the Tannehill
Just like King of the Hill, mundane and normally average.
14. Gore Than a Feeling
So many people have come and gone.
13. Hightower of Terror
Tim just high-stepping his way into the enzdone.
12. Hold the Agholor
Or just let him loose.
11. Frosted Flaccos
I dig it.
10. Smelter Skelter
Watch out for 49ers 6-foot-3 rookie wideout DeAndre Smelter.
9. Rage Against the Vereen
Pokemon is apparently big again, so let’s just bring back everything from the 90s.
8. Alshon of the Dead
In terms of fantasy expectations, this one’s a horror flick.
7. 2001: A Space Marquise Lee
Might be a stretch, but who else in your league will have this name?
I mean, he won’t go away so why not?
5. Droptimus Prime
Also available for NBA fantasy teams as “Floptimus Prime.” Sports meme waiting to happen.
4. Hold the Oher
Last Hodor reference, seriously. 2016 fantasy football team names need those types of overused references.
3. Horton Hears a Suh
Is it too soon to say “who?”
2. Goff-uck yourself
One of the more elegant team monikers.
1. The Tolbert Report
Mike Tolbert, too, has a loyal following.
