Fantasy Football Team Names Related to NFC East

The NFC East is always one of the tightest divisions in the National Football League. The type of action you see on the gridiron each week is not always the best in the sport, but these teams are some of the most loved and hated in the sport. Those feelings are often used as inspiration for fantasy football team names by fans and haters. Below are 20 of the best that can be used by anyone with a connection to the NFC East.

Tickle Me Al-Mo
Alfred Morris is a talented running back for the Dallas Cowboys (used to be Redskins) and Elmo is a popular character from Sesame Street. If you are going to be showing your team off to your young children, they will enjoy seeing this team name on the page.

Zeke and Deztroy
Ezekiel Elliot and Dez Bryant headline this name. These are two of the best guys in their respective positions in football today and this team name combines them both. If you're a dallas fan and managed to get both guys then this ought to just about lock down the league's best team name for you!

This is a vulgar and hilarious fantasy football team name that uses the Redskins as inspiration. This might not be a team name that female fans will use, but it certainly one that create some discussion on draft day.

Broke Back Romo
The most hated player in the NFL seems to be Tony Romo. There are some fantasy team names that are used by his fans, but there are far more choices for those that hate him and the Dallas Cowboys. This is one of the best. You can switch your team name to this any time you want to take a dig at owner that is obviously a cowboy fan. Of course, now that they've found a winner in Dak Prescott it might be a little harder to make these types of jabs hurt.

Daktics and Strategy
I include this one right after a Romo jab because, well, they have a QB now that is probably the future of the team. If the kid, Dak Prescott, stays healthy and out of trouble - and he plays anything like how he played in his rookie year - this will be a team name to last you a decade!

Wake Me Up Before You Romo
Songs are a great way for fantasy football players to come up with unique and hilarious team names. This name is a popular one that was created from the song, “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go,” from Wham!

EZ-Dez It
Dez Bryant is one of the greatest wide receivers in the NFL today and this team name is a great way of showing exactly how simple Bryant makes it look each weekend.

Save a Bronco Ride a Cowboy
Fantasy football team names don’t only have to do with television, movies, music, and top players. It can also just be a creative name using a team name like Save a Bronco Ride a Cowboy.

Straight Outta Coughlin
Tom Coughlin has been with the New York Giants since 2004 and there aren’t many other coaches that are as tough to like as Coughlin. He is a rough character, but is certainly a talented coach that deserves to be called one of the best of all time.

Manning of Steel
The Man of Steel is Superman, while the Manning of Steel is a man that likes to throw a lot of interceptions. While Romo gets hated on more than any other player in the sport, Eli Manning might actually be more deserving of the ridicule, despite owning two Super Bowl rings.

Hakeem in Like a Wrecking Ball
Hakeem Nicks may be a member of the Indianapolis Colts now, but this is a team that is too good to ignore. This team name is based off the hit Miley Cyrus song, “Wrecking Ball.”

Punchable Manningface
Every hater of the Giants and the Denver Broncos for the matter would love nothing better than to punch the Manning brothers in the face.

Strahan’s Dentist
Longtime Giants defensive end Michael Strahan may be one of the most loved morning talk show hosts in the United States, but many haters will mostly remember him for having a terrible dentist that couldn’t fix that terrible gap.

In the Vick of Time
Michael Vick served his time in a prison for his role in the infamous dog fighting ring and got out in the Vick of Time to help bring great memories to the Eagles. He is now a Jet, but is still appreciated for everything he did in Philly.

Chubby Chip’s Stubby Vick
Chip Kelly is sort of big around the waist and if you ask the creator of this fantasy football team name, he has a stubby private part. We don’t ever want Kelly to show us if this is a true name or not, but for those fans of other NFC East teams, this name is something that is the perfect mix of funny and vulgar.

Coopers Cheese and Crackers
The first of three Riley Cooper-themed fantasy football names is Coopers Cheese and Crackers. Of all the Cooper names here at Fantasy Football Team Names, this may be the most unoriginal and boring.

Cooper’s Plantation
This is one of those names that is the complete opposite of the previous. You may remember that Cooper got in hot water last year after a video surfaced of him using the “N” word. This is one of those names that will never allow Cooper the chance to get past his errors.

Cooper Clux Clan
While Cooper’s Plantation is a backhanded slap towards that racial incident, this name is more to the point. Cooper isn’t a member of the KKK, but that won’t stop many players from using this name as their own this season and beyond.

Fantasy Football Team Names Related to AFC East

The American Football Conference East division tends to be the one that has the most questions. The New England Patriots have been the top team in the division for years, but the Miami Dolphins, New York Jets, and Buffalo Bills each try their best to compete. This season, the Patriots dropped their season-opener to the Dolphins, while the Bills and Jets were each victorious. These four teams are all the source of a lot of jokes and with jokes come fantasy football team names. Enjoy!

Discount Belicheck
The discount double check is one of the most annoying commercial slogans ever created. Bill Belichick also just happens to be one of the most hated coaches in sports, which make this team name perfect.

Gronk If You Wanna See My TDs
Rob Gronkowski returned to the Patriots in a big way during their opening game this season, but he will always be known as a guy that likes to party and have fun. That is why this team name fits him so well.

Amebola Virus
Danny Amendola is a player that excelled (when he made it to the field) a year ago with the Patriots. He is a lot better off in New England than he was in St. Louis, but still contracted this terrible virus.

Here’s My Number, Call Me Brady
He may be married and have kids, but Tom Brady is still loved by the ladies. Plenty of fantasy players of the female variety would use this name for their teams.

Ladies and Edelman
Julian Edelman did a remarkable job replacing Wes Welker a year ago and will look to be the main receiver for the Pats again this season. Of course, this name works really well because of how it sounds with “Ladies and Gentleman.”

Baby Back Cribbs
Joshua Cribbs joined the Jets a year ago and only played 6 games. This year, he will find it hard to get playing time, but regardless, has a name that matches the popular barbeque food choice.

Greener Pastures
Shonn Greene bolted from the Jets in the offseason as he searched for greener pastures and more money elsewhere.

Love Me Rexy
Rex Ryan is one of the most brash coaches in the history of the NFL, but his fans and players love him. Everyone else around the league hates him, but that means he is doing something right.

In The Vick of Time
Michael Vick is now the backup to Geno Smith in New York and has made it in the Vick of time to help get the Jets passed the Patriots in the division and possibly to a title.

I Dream of Geno
I Dream of Jeannie was a popular television series from the 1960s. Geno Smith is the face of the Jets franchise and will be the reason why they either win or lose each week.

Turn Down for Watkins
One of the biggest songs of the year has been “Turn Down For What,” from Lil’ Jon. The song has been used as inspiration for many fantasy football team names this season including this one, which features rookie wide receiver from Buffalo, Sammy Watkins.

Spiller Genuine Draft
C.J. Spiller is half of the running back duo that leads the way for Buffalo each week and Miller Genuine Draft is the delicious beer that doesn’t break the bank like others do.

Spiller Instinct
When you want to be a star player in the NFL, regardless of what position you play, you need to have killer instinct. It just so happens with this name that C.J. Spiller’s name matches up so well with the phrase.

Flutie Flakes
Doug Flutie is a longtime fan favorite that spent time with the Bills and Patriots. He was so loved during his career that he had a cereal named after him. How many other players can say they had a food product named after them?

It Was a Forward Pass
The Bills have had a terrible history of bad luck and among those moments occurred in the game known as the Music City Miracle. During the wild card game between the Bills and Tennessee Titans, a last- second kickoff led to one of the most amazing moments in NFL history, but no Buffalo fan would admit to that.

The Tannehills Have Eyes
Ryan Tannehill doesn’t only have a gorgeous wife, he is also a man that has a perfect name that can be used along with The Hills Have Eyes horror movie.

The Henne Badger
The honey badger is one of the most dangerous and fearless animals in the world. Chad Henne is one of the funniest quarterbacks to watch. They don’t exactly seem like they match well, but that’s an argument for another time.

Motion in the Knowshon
Knowshon Moreno left the Denver Broncos in the offseason for the Miami Dolphins. Some people may call him crazy for leaving a perennial Super Bowl contender for a possible cellar-dweller, but he did his part in ensuring that the Dolphins pulled off the week 1 upset of the Patriots. This name has a different meaning that that, but you can use your own judgment.

Jonathan Martin’s Morale
Last season, Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin made headlines because of their off-field issues. The teammates helped to derail the season for the Dolphins and in Martin’s case, needed to find confidence in himself again.

Get High Ricky
From all of us here at Fantasy Football Team Names, one of the most remarkable characters in the history of the sport is Ricky Williams. The talented rusher enjoyed to get high during his time in Miami than actually playing, but to each their own.

Fantasy Football Team Names Related to AFC West

The American Football Conference West division is one of the most talent-rich in football. To go with the talented group of players that call the division home, there are plenty of fans that hate some of those biggest stars. Whether you love or hate the Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, or San Diego Chargers, there are plenty of fantasy football team names available for the fantasy season.

Weddle Me This
Riddle Me This is a popular saying that isn’t used as often today as it was in the past, but it is still a popular and well-known term. With this fantasy name, Eric Weddle, the safety for the Chargers had his name inserted into it.

The Gates of Hell
One of the greatest tight ends of the past 10 years is Antonio Gates. When he is on his game, he unleashes the gates of hell on defenses.

Teo me she is fo real
Manti Te’o has turned into a pretty good professional football player, but he will never be allowed to forget about his fake girlfriend and her fake death.

Knock on Woodhead
When you are trying to avoid jinxing yourself, one of the things you do is knock on wood. When it comes to trying to prevent your fantasy team from getting all sorts of bad luck, you just need to knock on Woodhead, Danny Woodhead.

Peeping Tomlinson
LaDainian Tomlinson is one of the best running backs to ever play in the NFL. The legendary player spent most of his time with the Chargers and unlucky for him, has a name that matches well with peeping toms.

Living on a Prater
The suspended kicker for the Denver Broncos is Matt Prater. Little did Bon Jovi know that his song would still be relevant so many years later, especially in the NFL.

White Welkers
You don’t want to be around walkers. This could be when you are in a hurry trying to catch your train or if you are ever around when the zombie apocalypse hits.

By now, the entire sports world knows that Wes Welker was suspended four games for allegedly taking Molly at the Kentucky Derby. That might explain him giving away $100 bills, but it doesn’t count as an excuse for that terrible outfit he had.

Demaryius Prime
Optimus Prime isn’t the only cartoon character around the NFL. With Demaryius Prime, we have a made up character featuring a larger than life figure.

Came In Like Montee Ball
Nobody made a bigger impact in 2013 than Miley Cyrus. She twerked on Robin Thicke and of course, rode a wrecking ball. With this name, you’ll see that Montee Ball is the only person coming in like a Montee Ball in our modern day NFL.

Dees Bowes Aint Loyal
Dwayne Bowe is another player that was missing during the opening week of the 2014 NFL season because of a drug suspension. But when it comes to some girls hanging around the pros, they can’t be trusted.

Make it Dwayne on Dem Bowes
Who doesn’t love to make it rain of these… well, you get the point. Sometimes, the football Gods just love Fantasy Football Team Names so much that a name like this is created.

Chief Concern: Bowe Jobs
Dwayne Bowe is one of the biggest names on the roster for the Chiefs and is the man behind a lot of good and bad fantasy team names. You be the judge on this one.

Jamaal Up on Your Mom
If it isn’t a name revolving around Bowe for the Chiefs, it will be a name revolving around Jamaal Charles. This name took some creativity to come up with and is one I would use.

Nuclear Jammaallacaust
A nuclear holocaust is the worst type of event that could occur, but a Nuclear Jammaallacaust is the worst thing that could happen to your fantasy team. What happens here is when your first round draft pick tears his knee out in the first month, much like what happened to Charles several years ago.

Sporting Woodson
Charles Woodson has been with the Oakland Raiders for most of his career. He began with the team and after leaving for the Green Bay Packers in 2006, returned to his roots in 2013.

Moore Cow Bell
Denarius Moore is a wide receiver for the Oakland Raiders. He has a talented quarterback throwing him the ball now with rookie Derek Carr. This fantasy team is not one I would use, but it was still created.

Straight Cash Homie
One of the funniest and iconic moments in sports occurred when Randy Moss was being asked by the media about a fine the NFL levied against him. What we got was “Straight Cash Homie,” and the rest was history.

I Heard Terrell Has A Prior
Terrelle Pryor was a member of the Raiders from 2011 to 2013, and is now with the Seattle Seahawks. We don’t know if Terrelle has a prior or not, but for the sake of a good name, he does now.

The Fighting Janikowskis
Sebastian Janikowski may be the only kicker in the sport that you may not want to fight in an alley. The big guy can probably take a couple guys down, which would be a funny YouTube video to watch.

Fantasy Football Team Names Related to NFC West

Just because the first week of the National Football League is in the books doesn’t mean that you can’t still enjoy the rest of the fantasy football season. There is still plenty of time to get into a league and come up with creative fantasy team names. If creativity is not your thing and you are a fan of a team from the NFC West, there are plenty of team names involving former and current players of teams from the division including the Arizona Cardinals, St. Louis Rams, San Francisco 49ers, and the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks.

Decker Like Rice Dunn
This is a fantasy football team name that is popular in the fantasy world right now because of the heinous act involving Ray Rice in an Atlantic City elevator. This name is linked to the Cardinals because of Reggie Dunn, who was on the roster earlier this summer.

Helter Skelter
Another name based off a former Cardinal is Helter Skelter, which used John Skelton as inspiration.

Angry Byrds
Part of the problem with being a fan of a team like the Cardinals who aren’t that successful on a regular basis is that names are created sporadically. With this name, LaRon Byrd, was the inspiration, but the wide receiver is no longer with the team and is instead in Cleveland.

Of Rice and Mendenhall
Former Cardinals running back, Rashard Mendenhall, was part of the inspiration for this name, which also used the famous book, Of Mice and Men.

Wine Her, Dine Her, 49er
One of the most popular sayings with the San Francisco franchise is, and has always been, wine her, dine her, 49er. The history behind this phrase is what makes it so perfect for fantasy players that are fans of the team.

Shut the Franke Gore
For those of you that hate to curse, go play another game. Just kidding. But seriously, if you don’t want to swear, you would say shut the front door, or in this case, shut the Franke Gore.

Hyde Yo Kids, Hyde Yo Wife
Carlos Hyde is a talented rookie running back that showed how good he could be in the opening week when he was used to give Gore a break.

Harb Goreorn
For many fantasy players, this time of year means just a few things. One would be fantasy football. Two would be hardcore. Combine the two and you will have a hilarious and remarkable fantasy team name.

Hyde ur Graham from Gordon
Another Carlos Hyde themed name is one that also involves another popular fantasy team name inspiration, weed. Many players are currently suspended because of the illegal substance and in some cases, these players got longer suspensions than Ray Rice. This name also uses Jimmy Graham and Josh Gordon as inspiration.

Harbaugh Dem Big TDs
If there were one, or two, things that could distract and confuse the mind of men, it would be breasts. We are all fans and enjoy them, big or small. With this name, using San Francisco Jim Harbaugh as inspiration, we are getting another unique name that show the world exactly what is one our minds 99 percent of the time.

Why Not Russ?
Russell Wilson should be called one of the most elite players at the position. For every fan that thinks this way, there is another fan that disagrees. For those that think he is elite, but are arguing with someone who begs to differ, the one question that is asked is why not Russ?

That Girl is So DangeRUSS
One of the most popular R&B songs was the 2007 single from Akon, “Dangerous.” Of course, with Russell Wilson’s name closely resembling the song title, this was an easy name to create.

Percy Whipped
Percy Harvin might be the most complete weapon in the sport of football. With as much talent as he has, the one thing he will never be is Percy whipped, or you know, the other thing that closely sounds the same.

B(R)east Mode
When Marshawn Lynch created an earthquake with his huge run in the playoffs several years ago, little did he know that Beast Mode was going to take off. With this name, it isn’t only beast mode anymore, rather it is now breast mode. A killer choice for the ladies who have Lynch on their squad.

Pete Love’s Richard’s Semen
Not all fantasy names are created equal. This is a perfect example of that fact. This vulgar name leaves little to the imagination and just simply isn’t that creative.

Everyday I’m Russelin’
When Russell Wilson steps onto the football field each week, the only thing that is expected of him aside from wins is hustling the defense.

Tavon Austin 3:16
Austin 3:16 is one of the biggest catchphrases in the history of professional wrestling. Tavon Austin is a player that does a little of everything for the Rams and has the same name to be able to use this slogan as his own.

Too LeBritt to Quit
The first five years of Kenny Britt’s NFL career were hard to handle. In between moments of awe at his incredible performance, the football world saw him suffer through off the field issues including DUI, resisting arrest, and being involved in a car chase. Now with the Rams, Britt can show that he is too good to quit. MC Hammer can't touch this.

Zac Stacy will be entering his second NFL season this year and one thing we don’t know as of yet is if his mom’s got it going on like the Fountains of Wayne song claims.

Rams Bringing It Up The Rear
Without Sam Bradford once again, the Rams could very well be in the position that this name claims. After their terrible loss in week 1, it is a highly likely possibility.
I like what I see - show me the big list!

Team Names Related to AFC South

The American Football Conference South division has been an intriguing one for the past 15 years. For years, it was the Peyton Manning-led Indianapolis Colts that had led the team to the top of the division. Now, it is his successor, Andrew Luck that will try to be that guy. The Colts are also joined in the AFC South by the Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Tennessee Titans. All four teams have been used an inspiration for some of the best fantasy football team names.

Do the Sankey Leg
The second-string running back for the Titans this season is Bishop Sankey. Sankey is a rookie from Washington and this name uses his name with the Stanky Leg Dance to create some great laughs.

Steve McNair’s Ghost
This is one of those names that will forever be used by Tennessee fans. Steve McNair was one of the best players in the history of his franchise and despite his death in 2009, is always in the thoughts of their fans.

Greene Rice and Beans
The leading back for the Titans this season is Shonn Greene, the former New York Jets. This isn’t an entirely creative name, but it is still one that can and will be used by Tennessee fans.

99 Problems… Britt Ain’t One
Jay Z famous rapped the hit “99 Problems” in 2004 and this team name uses the song, and former Tennessee Titans wide receiver, Kenny Britt, as inspiration.

You Sankey My Battleship
The running back position in Tennessee is the most popular for fantasy players around the country. Another name using the rookie from Washington as the inspiration is this name linked to the popular board game (and now phone app), Battleship.

So Watt Cha Want
J.J. Watt got a big money contract in the offseason and anyone that has watched him play closely can attest to the fact that whatever he got was well-deserved. Any Beastie Boy themed team name gets automatic street cred.

Send in the Clowney’s
Jadeveon Clowney, the No. 1 pick of the 2014 NFL Draft may have suffered a potentially season-ending injury in week one, but that won’t deter the fans of the Texans from using a name like this.

Turn Down for Watt!
One of the easiest ways to come up with fantasy football team names is to used music as inspiration. With this song, J.J. Watt’s name was inserted into the hit song from Lil’ Jon, “Turn Down For What.” I don't understand the music video, but I understand this name!

DeAndre The Giant Killer
DeAndre Hopkins is the second-year wide receiver that is No. 2 on the depth chart in Houston behind Andre Johnson. With Johnson likely to be defended by the opposing team’s best player, Hopkins will need to step up and be the giant killer.

Arian Nation
The top guy in the Houston backfield is Arian Foster. After his season ended early last year, he will hope to bounce back in 2014 and did so with more than 100 yards on the ground in week 1.

How I Lucked Your Mother
One of the most loved television shows of the past decade was How I Met Your Mother. The show wasn’t a normal inspiration for fantasy football team names, but it can be used with this name involving Colts’ quarterback, Andrew Luck.

Luck Dynasty
Another name linked to Andrew Luck and a television series is Luck Dynasty. Unless you have been without television for the past five years, I will assume you know exactly what show we’re talking about. And just in case you have been - let me introduce you to Duck Dynasty.

Put My Fleener in Your Slot
This is a vulgar name that wouldn’t require a lot of thought to determine exactly what it is talking about. If you need some assistance, ask a friend and they’ll explain it.

Hakeem in Like a Wrecking Ball
Miley Cyrus and football should go hand in hand. Well, that is never said by anyone, but still, Hakeem Nicks from the Colts is the man used to show off her hit 2013 single, “Wrecking Ball.”

Somewhere Over the Waynebow
Reggie Wayne is among the best wide receivers in the history of the NFL. Somewhere over the rainbow (or Waynebow), is his Hall of Fame plaque and for the sake of the Indy fans, another Super Bowl title.

Orange is the New Blackmon
Justin Blackmon is a wide receiver for the Jaguars and is the easy choice to take over the name of the hit Netflix series, Orange is the New Black.

That’s Supposed Toby a Graham?
After spending four seasons as the backup to Adrian Peterson in Minnesota, Toby Gerhart is finally the guy as a member of the Jaguars. This name uses his name, as well as Jimmy Graham from New Orleans, to talk about some NFL player’s favorite activity, smoking up.

Eat My Cecil Shorts
Cecil Shorts may have missed the opening week of the 2014 season due to injury, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t going to be one of the best offensive stars for the Jaguars this season. For those that don’t believe you can, as Bart Simpson would say, eat his shorts.

Swift Kick in the Denards
No guy ever wants to get a swift kick in the Denards, or as they are also known as: balls, boys, grapefruits, etc. Would work as a team name for girls as well. And for Taylor Swift fans.

Always Bet on Blackmon
Always bet on black, the words spoken by wesley snipes, can be adjusted to a great trash talk team name if you happen to have Blackmon on your team or be a Jags fan.
OK, I'm warmed up now - bring on the ranked list!

Fantasy Team Names Related to Teams from NFC South

The National Football Conference isn’t known as the strongest conference in the National Football League, but there are still plenty of talented players and teams that represent the league. In the NFC South division, the New Orleans Saints, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers all try their best to be the team to beat. These teams also feature several players that can be used as inspiration for fantasy football team names this season. What are some of the best?

Roddy White Walkers
Roddy White is hoping to stay healthy this season for the Atlanta Falcons. He and fellow wide receiver want to become the first teammates to each earn more than 1,500 receiving yards in a season and as long as he doesn’t slow down like a walker from The Walking Dead, they could make it work.

Kibbles N Vick
One fantasy football player that will never be allowed to forget about his faults is Michael Vick. He will always be remembered for his role in a dog fighting ring.

Romo and Juliot
If Tony Romo and Julio Jones ever played together, it would be a match made in heaven. Of course, that won’t happen except maybe for Pro Bowl games, but this team name, which is a variation of the William Shakespeare play, can be used by fans of either team.

Mike Ditka Jacquizzed All Over
Mike Ditka has been and always will be a popular source of fantasy football team names. This name, which also includes Atlanta Falcons running back Jacquizz Rodgers, is a hilarious name that can be used. With a name like Jacquizz, it’s only a matter of time before fantasy players rhyme your name to the most obvious choices.

Hold My Harry D
Harry Douglas got his greatest chance to shine a year with injuries laying out Julio Jones and Roddy White. This name has nothing to do with his ability and everything to do with the way his name can be turned into something vulgar.

Teach Me How to Dougie Martin
The Dougie is a hip hop dance that was made popular by Lil’ Wayne in 2007 and Doug Martin is a running back for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. These two go hand in hand and create an ideal fantasy football team name. If you choose to use this team name you have earned the right to enjoy Kate Upton teaching you the dance.

Dude, Where’s My Carimi???
Gabe Carimi, a 2011 first round pick is now with the Falcons after spending 14 games with the Buccaneers a year ago. Offensive lineman don’t usually get teams named after them, but in this case, Carimi’s name fits well with the popular Ashton Kutcher movie, Dude, Where’s My Carr (another name)?

Do The Dougie
Another team name related to Doug Martin and the “Dougie” dance. It’s a shame that the Buccaneers don’t have more unique names to be used for inspiration.

Macaroni and Brees
One of the most unoriginal, but still funny, fantasy team names about the New Orleans Saints and Drew Brees is Macaroni and Brees. It has nothing to do with his playing ability and only with the ease in which his name can be rhymed with.

Among the most popular apps for smart phones is Instagram. With this name, we are combining that social media app with one of the best tight ends in the sport today, Jimmy Graham.

Drinkin fortes n smokinagraham
Some of the best fantasy football team names use multiple player names. As we saw earlier with Romo and Juliot, this team name is based around drugs and alcohol, plus Matt Forte from the Chicago Bears and Jimmy Graham.

Sprolin With the Punches
Darren Sproles may be a part of the high-powered Philadelphia Eagles offense now, but his solid play will be remembered by all New Orleans fans. Without him in the backfield, the Saints will now just be rolling with the punches,

Kickers Break Your Hartley
Garrett Hartley is one of the best kickers in the history of the Saints and while he is no longer with the team, this is a team name that can be used for the next several seasons while his career is still fresh in our minds.

Young Breesy
Young Jeezy is a talented hip hop artist, while Drew Brees is a talented quarterback. Much like with Macaroni and Brees, this team name was made because of its ability to rhyme.

The Great Corn Julio
Fans of Beavis and Butthead will love to see this fantasy team name like this on their draft board. Julio Jones is considered one of the best receivers in the sport, or The Great Corn Julio.

License to Kalil
Much like with Gabe Carimi, there aren’t many team names based off offensive lineman, but this team name, which used Ryan Kalil from the Carolina Panthers, was created.

I Cam, I Saw, I Conquered
The man Ryan Kalil is responsible for protecting is the man, the myth, the legend, Cam Newton. Newton had a great 20013 season, making it easy for him to say this line to opposing defenses.

Whiskey Sauerbrun
This name brings it back a little bit, as Todd Sauerbrun was the punter with the team from 2001 to 2004. You can’t go wrong with a name featuring a classic player and a classic drink.

LaFell in Love With a Girl
Brandon LaFell was formerly with the Panthers, but is now a member of the New England Patriots. The talented wide receiver is the man behind this team name.

Fig Newtons
Food is often a solid inspiration for fantasy football team names and this name is no exception. Maybe it's because game day is often full of food and company. This name blends the formidable Cam Newton from the panthers with the tasty Fig Newton cookie.
Want to focus on names not details? Here you go!

Fantasy Football Names for Teams from AFC North

The AFC North is one of the deepest divisions in the National Football League in terms of raw talent. The Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, and Cleveland Browns have some of the best established stars including three elite quarterbacks and one rookie making big waves. The division also has some of the best wide receivers in the sport including A.J. Green and Torrey Smith, and top tier running backs including Le’Veon Bell, Giovani Bernard, and Ray Rice. What are some of the best fantasy football team names related to these teams and their players?

Ultra-Violet Ray
One of the most popular Ray Rice elevator incident team names is Ultra-Violent Ray. This situation will be something he will never be able to let down and names like this will stick around until the day he retires.

Elevator Domesticator
Of all the Ray Rice elevator team names, this is our favorite. The way it rhymes and tells a story is a magnificent way for haters of the Ravens and Rice.

Obi-Wan Jacoby
Jacoby Jones is one of the fastest players in the NFL. Obi-Wan Kenobi is one of the most popular characters from the Star Wars movies. Put the two together and you will have a unique and great fantasy football team name. Especially for fans for Star Wars.

Waka Flacco Flame
Waka Flocka Flame became a hip hop superstar a few years ago and this fantasy team name, which was used several years ago, was created.

Of Rice and Mendenhall
Before all fantasy names about Ray Rice and the Baltimore Ravens were about his issues in the elevator with his fiancé, there were other names like this about the talented rusher. This team name is a nice remake of the classic book, Of Mice and Men, and also features former Pittsburgh Steeler, Rashard Mendenhall.

For Whom Le’Bell Tolls
Le’Veon Bell, the former Michigan State running back had a solid rookie season and even better next couple for the Steelers and the team will rely on him just as much if note more this season. If he can succeed, the team will have a good chance of reaching the playoffs.

Smoke a LeGarrette Blount
LeGarrette Blaount was brought into the Pittsburgh organization in the offseason and will give Bell a break every few series. His name just so happens to include something that Josh Gordon is extremely familiar with. Now that LB is in New England he's an even stronger player because they're a team that knows how to use him.

Straight Outta Tomlin
“Straight Outta Compton” was the popular rap song from N.W.A. Mike Tomlin the head coach of the Steelers and he is a tough character, which makes this a great team name.

Ben There, Raped That
Ben Roethlisberger has been accused of rape several times, but has gotten off each time. This is an older name and while the Super Bowl champion has changed for the better, fans and haters won’t soon forget his transgressions.

Saved By Le’Veon Bell
Mario Lopez and Tiffany Thiessen became stars on the hit series, Saved by the Bell. This team name is an easy one to come up with and is unique and creative. It won’t win the best name award on draft day, but it may prompt a marathon of the show.

You Are the One Gio
The Matrix was a popular movie starring Keanu Reeves. Giovani Bernard is a talented rusher for the Cincinnati Bengals. Anyone that has seen the movie knows that Reeve’s character, Neo, was called the one.

Crash and Bernard
Crash and Burn is a common expression that has been used for decades. When it comes to this name, Burn can be replaced with Bernard and you will be able to show off your allegiances. With a name like this, nobody will ever wonder who your favorite team or player is.

Ki-Jana Carter Holy Grail
This an interesting name that will be used by fans of the Bengals from the 1990s. Ki-Jana Carter was the No. 1 pick of the 1995 NFL Draft and his career didn’t pan out as hoped or expected. Magna Carter Holy Grail was the name of Jay Z’s 2013 album and combined with Ki-Jana, make for a great team name.

Geno 911
Reno 911 was a wacky comedy about cops in Reno, Nevada, that can be used as inspiration for any player named Geno, including Geno Smith from the New York Jets and Geno Atkins from the Bengals.

Ginger Paradise
The man at the head of the Cincinnati offense is Andy Dalton. The former TCU player just landed a big money contract that will allow him to go to whatever paradise he wants.

Weeden Gordon’s Pee
Josh Gordon is the most talented wide receiver in the league, but won’t make it onto the playing field because he has weed in his piss too often. While marijuana is not considered to be a bad drug, the NFL hates it and will suspend anyone who fails.

Second Hand Smoke
Another Josh Gordon and marijuana related team name is Second Hand Smoke. The wide receiver claims the last failed drug test he had was because of second hand smoke he ingested from friends.

Lights, Cameron, Action!
This is the fourth year of Jordan Cameron’s career and he is coming off the best season of his career. As he continues to evolve, he has a chance to become one of the best tight ends in the sport and will have plenty of more teams named after him.

MANziel in the Mirror
“Man in the Mirror” is a hit song performed by Michal Jackson and this team name is perfect for fans of the Cleveland Browns and their rookie quarterback, Johnny Manziel.

Johnny Unite Us
Along with LeBron James, Johnny Manziel is helping to unite all Cleveland fans as they search for a championship. This isn’t the most creative name in the world, but it will help fans show that they are proud of their team.
Less Details! More names!

Fantasy Football Team Names Related to NFC North Teams

With the calendar finally set to August, that can mean one thing for thousands of fans across the United States… Football is back! That’s right, enough time has passed since we last saw a competitive football game and the anticipation is getting to many of these fans. Not only does the sport kick off its regular season soon, fantasy football is in full effect. Mock drafts are being held daily, advice magazines and websites and fully staffed again, and pre-season trades are all being taken care of already. One important thing that is also being done is deciding what team name is going to be used this year. Picking the right team name will set the tone for the rest of the season and if you are a fan of any team from the NFC North, here are plenty of names to get you started in your quest to find the best fantasy football team name.

Va Jay Jay Cutler
When young ladies feel too umcomfortable talking about their anatomy, they often use the term va-jay- jay. When you think about Chicago Bear quarterback Jay Cutler and his “baby-ish” persona, this team name makes the most sense.

The Forte Forte Club
Matt Forte is the star running back for the Chicago Bears and we have been blessed as fantasy players to have a player who has a name that is perfect for rhyming. This fantasy team name is related to Jay Z’s 40/40 Club, which showcases the feat that only four baseball players have ever reached: 40 home runs and 40 stolen bases in the same season.

Mike Ditka in Your Mouth
If Matt Forte had a name made for creatives, Mike Ditka’s name is God-like. The former Chicago Bear linebacker and current ESPN analyst has a name that can be turned into such derogatory sounding phrases. What else can a fantasy football manager ask for?

The Cutler Did It
It is shocking that this team name hasn’t gained in popularity until this season, the ninth of Jay Cutler’s career. This name can be traced back to the cult board game that originally came out in 1949 in England.

Good as Gould
Not many fantasy football players think of the kicker when coming up with their team names, but when your kicker is as good as Robbie Gould, you’ll consider it more often. Gould is the third most accurate kicker in NFL history and has been a happy member of the Bears since 2005.

Trim Your Reggie Bush
Nobody likes a hairy bush, especially Reggie. The talented running back is the inspiration behind this hilarious team name making waves this season.

I Ansha to No One
Akwasi Owusu-Ansah is the former wide receiver for the Detroit Lions and this is something he can say at the moment, as he is still currently a free agent. With just 22 career tackles in three seasons, it may stay that way for a while.

Full Nelson Jacket
Jordy Nelson has turned into one of the best wide receivers in the NFL. With Aaron Rodgers throwing him the pigskin every Sunday, names like this one based off the movie Full Metal Jacket, will be easy to come by.

You Kuhn Do It
Not many fullbacks are as loved in their team’s city like John Kuhn. He has been with the team since 2007 and this name comes from the famous line heard throughout Adam Sandler’s movies, “You Can Do It.”

Don’t Lace Me Bro
Eddie Lacey came into the league with a lot of hype a year ago and is keeping his name going strong on the Internet because of names like this. Who could forget the hilariously terrible line uttered by a student from the University of Florida being tasered at a John Kerry forum.

Armed Rodgery
This is one of those names that many fans of the Green Bay Packers would use just because of his role. The ease in which he eats up defenses is almost like he is robbing them of everything they own.

License to Kalil
Matt Kalil is a third-year offensive tackle from USC that has a lot of talent. Just like kickers, offensive lineman don’t usually have fantasy teams named after them, but this is the rare exception to the rule.

Just Me and My Teddy
The player that will be relied upon more than any other this season is Teddy Bridgewater, the former Louisville quarterback. The Minnesota Vikings will hope for big things from the talented 21-year- old who will be the man behind this team name for many years to come.

Gentlemen Priefer Blonde Girls
Chuck Priefer is the special teams coach for the Vikings who came under fire for his alleged anti-gay slurs. By knowing that, his preference of blonde girls shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone.

Ahh, another vulgar name related to the Hall of Famer, Mike Ditka. There isn’t much explanation needed here.

Cobra Kai L Orton
Any fan of The Karate Kid will recognize the name Cobra Kai, which some would argue has some similarities to former Chicago Bear quarterback, Kyle Orton.

How Does My Ditka Taste
When your last name sounds like a human body part, the names will just keep adding up. Some will laugh. Some will gasp. But overall, most people will just enjoy the show.

Cutler Commandos
If you had the money that Jay Cutler does, you would be shocked to find out if he ever had to go commando beneath his jersey. That being said, take this team name anyway you’d like it.

King of the North
This is a name that can apply for any confident NFC North team fan. Just be ready to explain your fantasy name if your professional team has two wins at Thanksgiving.

Names Related to Football Lingo and Terms

In the sport of football, the amount of terms that are required to know, understand, and repeat is huge. For newbies that are starting their love of the sport at a later age, this can become a major problem. In addition to all the different terms you need to know, there are also countless phrases called “football lingo,” that need to be learned and understood. In fantasy football leagues, football lingo and terms can be used as inspiration for your next team. What are some of the best?

Play Action Passholes
When an offense perfectly executes a play action pass, it can be the worst play a defense could ever see. Oftentimes, this play occurs after a running back ran through a defense and they would then have more players in the box that get fooled by the fake handoff.

Forte Yard Bomb
In the NFL, you are only as good as your last Hail Mary and your last snap. With this name, Matt Forte is used as inspiration for the term, 40-yard Bomb.

Roughing the Snapper
In football, you can get called for a penalty for roughing a lot of players. It is usually used for the kickers, but this team name is all about the person snapping the ball to the kickers.

Touchdown Warrior
There is not a term more important to the football world than a touchdown. Fantasy teams love a handful of players that score at least once a week.

Dreadzone Offense
Inside the opposing 20-yard- line is known as the Red Zone. For those teams in the NFL that are terrible in this area, it is known as the Dreadzone.

Patriots Pistol Offense
The pistol is a formation that many offenses have used over the years. With this name, it is all about Aaron Hernandez and his legal woes.

Touchdown My Pants
We’re going back to the touchdown with this one. Teams using this name will want to have the hot girls in their league doing exactly what this name calls for.

Gronk for TD’s
Another name using footballs as inspiration is this team name that also uses Rob Gronkowski as inspiration.

Tackle Me Elmo
If it weren’t for touchdowns, the tackle would be the most important football term in the world. Without it, scores would be in the 100s in each game. With this name, you will notice the use of Elmo and his famous toy.

Show Me Your TDs
Men around the world, especially when drunk, try to get girls to flash them. It could be at the bar, in a parking garage, or at the football stadium. If you are feeling ambitious and would like to try something new out, this could be the perfect line to use.

I Two-Hand Touch Myself
In youth football, or even in backyard games, two-hand touch is the way to go. For older players, it becomes about the tackling aspect of the sport. With this name, the only person tackling or two-hand touching you is yourself.

Montee Ball So Hard
When a player goes off on the opposing team, the phrase saying that they ball so hard is often used. It just so happens that the Denver Broncos have a player named Montee Ball who can have his name inserted into the phrase and not miss a step.

Take a Knee at the 1 Yard Line
Years ago, one of the worst plays in the history of fantasy football occurred with Brian Westbrook and the Philadelphia Eagles. With his team up late in the game, Westbrook was on his way to a touchdown, but downed the ball before reaching the goal line. This play dashed fantasy title hopes and inspired this team name.

Beavis and Buttfumble
Five years ago, the term, butt fumble, was never used in the football world. Then came Mark Sanchez and his infamous fumble after running into the butt of Brandon Moore. What made it worse was that it happened on Thanksgiving with a national audience and was replayed on sports shows for months.

Hernandez’s Pistol Offense
It’s pretty easy to link football terms and lingo to Aaron Hernandez and his legal woes. That is where this name comes in. He can’t complain though, especially when he is accused of taking part in three different murders.

Murray Up Offense
The hurry up offense is something that most teams use late in the game when they are trailing, while other times, it is used as a strategy throughout the game. With this version of the phrase, you can use any player that has the last name of Murray as your inspiration.

Pile on the Pylon
Back when celebrations were allowed without consequence, one of the most fun moments would be when a player scored a touchdown and the entire team piled on top of him. Can’t do that anymore…

Cleats and Cleavage
You can’t play the sport of football without cleats and this name is a perfect way of showing that. For men, while their attention is focused on the screen all day Sunday, that doesn’t keep them from loving cleavage just as much.

Sacks in the City
Some sacks are incredibly executed defensive play calls made by coordinators. Other sacks are just a result of incredible skill and talent. Sacks in the city is a perfect name to use for those taking part in leagues with individual defensive players.

Back That Pass Up
The pass is what makes or break most games. When you need a score late in the game and need to make up a lot of ground, the pass is the way to do it. This name doesn’t tell us that, but it works anyway.

Win With Kickers!
In every league I have ever played, the last pick of my draft is usually the kicker. In some cases, they can be the best picks, while in others, the free agent pool is often used. Rarely will you ever hear anyone say they won with kickers, but this name still counts.
Let's see that massive list of names.

Examples Related to Current Events

Through the first three weeks of the National Football League season, there has been as much discussion about the actions of NFL players off the field as they have had for their actions on the field. Between domestic abuse against their spouse or child abuse, players have made it easy for fans to turn on them and even easier for fantasy players to come up with new, unique names. What are some of the best fantasy names added to Fantasy Football Team Names?

AP Switch Hitter
Adrian Peterson is an All-Pro running back that was easily a top-five draft pick in most fantasy leagues. Now, his actions at home against his children has gotten his name in the news. He is accused of using a “switch,” or tree branch, to punish his children, hence this fantasy name.

Lacy is Victorious Secret
Eddie Lacy is on his way to being an elite running back in the NFL and if you believe in this name, he will be your secret weapon to victory for the remainder of the fantasy season,

A.P.’s Switch Picker
Another name that uses Adrian Peterson’s punishment tool of choice is this name. He will likely never be the same type of player again and only time will tell how long it will be until he ever takes the field again.

Throw’n Rivers
This is one of those fantasy team names that we here at Fantasy Football Team Names don’t get completely. The only part that makes sense is Phillip Rivers is the quarterback, but I don’t know if that is enough to come up with this name.

Open Up a Can of Peterson
If you were a fan of old school professional wrestling, you know one of Stone Cold Steve Austin’s most famous lines involved him opening up a can of whoop-ass on an opponent. In this case, Peterson is all you need to say and it’ll have the same message.

Camburger Helper
When you need some help making dinner, you turn to Hamburger Helper. When you need a few points from your quarterback on the ground and in the air, you’ll turn to Cam Newton.

Suspensions and Indictments
This has been the season from hell already for the National Football League and we are still only in September. From drug and abuse suspensions to indictments for various offenses, the league’s PR office has needed to work plenty of overtime.

ABC, Easy as RGIII
The Washington Redskins are learning that they are better off with Kirk Cousins as their quarterback. Despite that, fans still love Robert Griffin III.

Jadeveon Clowney may be on the shelf right now due to a meniscus injury, but Houston fans are hopeful to see him return and lead their talented defensive unit along with J.J. Watt.

This is another Jadeveon Clowney themed named. Instead of using a band as inspiration for the previous name, this is just using the popular saying, just clowning around.

Up until their week 3 comeback victory, the Dallas Cowboys and their fans were wetting their pants about what is likely to be a bad season. This name uses Tony Romo and Jason Witten as inspiration.

The creator of this fantasy name might need to brush up on their phobias, but the proper way to say this would not be RhomoPhobiac, rather it would be RomoPhobe.

Adrian BeaterSon
Many of the fantasy names regarding Adrian Peterson and his legal woes are funny. This name on the other hand was creative in terms of turning his last name into his alleged actions.

My Johnson Goes Deep
For any fan that has a player named Johnson on their team, this is a fantasy name that will apply to your fantasy roster.

Purple People Beaters
The Minnesota Vikings wear purple jerseys. Adrian Peterson uses a tree branch to discipline his kids. Put the two together and you have this fantasy name.

It Erz When I McAdoo (doo)
Zach Ertz is the rookie tight end for the Philadelphia Eagles and Ben McAdoo is the offensive coordinator for the New York Giants. This is a funny name that uses these two rival teams as inspiration.

Rice Smack the Bishop
Ray Rice is another player that has had his issues with the law this season and his issues are all self- caused, hitting his then-fiancé in an elevator.

Nick Folk is the kicker for the New York Jets and is one of the few kickers that actually has teams named after him.

Omaha Ha!
In something that makes many people nauseous, the media loves Peyton Manning and his excessive Omaha calls. This season, we haven’t heard as much discussion about this, but then again, here is another name about that.

I Shoulda Won a Grahamy
The Grammy Awards honor the best musicians in the world. A Graham is one of the best tight ends in the NFL and while the two don’t have anything in common, this is still a name that was created on Fantasy Football Team Names.

Big D Perfect For Sam
Michael Sam was drafted by the St. Louis Rams and was released before the start of the regular season. He was added to the practice squad of the Dallas Cowboys, who are hurting on the defensive side of the football.

Why’d Rice Decker?
This name asks a question that has been brought up since the arrest of Ray Rice. Why’d he deck her, except it uses New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker as the inspiration.

Placing Bets and Taking X
This is the first name to make me chuckle in a while, but this is obviously about Wes Welker, who was suspended from the NFL for two games after allegedly taking molly at the Kentucky Derby.

Th.. th.. that’s all Foles
Nick Foles is a star in the making for the Philadelphia Eagles. The team is one of only a few that are unbeaten this season and at the end of each game, he could use this Looney Tunes line against his opponents.

Rice Krispy Beats
Rice Krispies speak to you when you put milk in them. Rice Krispy Beats happens when you’re alone in an elevator with Ray Rice, or Solange Knowles for that matter.

The Shady Bunch
This is a name that relates to every player that has done wrong in the eyes of the NFL and the public including Ray Rice, Josh Gordon, Wes Welker, and Adrian Peterson.

Welker’s Molly Wop
Another Wes Welker name about his issues with molly is Welker’s Molly Wop. It’s not my favorite, but it is a ton better than his outfit at the Kentucky Derby. Suck My Danny Woodhead This is a basic name that uses Danny Woodhead’s name in place of, well, you know what.

Hertz, ExZachtly
This is a stretch when it comes to creativity of a team name, but then again, the Eagles and their fans love Zach Ertz, so any name will do.

Demaryius Targaryen
Demaryius Thomas is one of the best wide receivers in the sport and this team name uses the popular series, Game of Thrones, as inspiration.

If you have kept up with our posts, you know I hate names that include more than two players and this one, despite it’s great vulgar sound, is one of them. If you need to use three players to get your point across, stop. Thanks.

unneSUHsary roughness
The Detroit Lions have one of the most feared defensive players in the sport in Ndamukong Suh, who has no problem hitting you in the mouth when he has to.

This team name was created using the movie, Inception, as inspiration. I don’t know what it has to do with football, but eh, not all of them do.

AP’s CPS Agent
You thought we were done with the Adrian Peterson names, didn’t you? Nope. We won’t be done for a long time.

Washington Pale Face Devils
There has been a lot of discussion about professional sports teams in the United States using names that have something to do with Indians. The Redskins are one of those teams and this is a great name that uses that issue as inspiration.

Off Jerick ter scale
Not many fantasy players outside of Minnesota know the name Jerick McKinnon. The third-round draft pick in the 2014 NFL Draft is a running back who could get more playing time with Adrian Peterson suspended.

Ready Oher Not
Michael Oher is an offensive tackle for the Tennessee Titans. If you thought it was rare to have fantasy names about kickers, you would be right. Another position that doesn’t feature a lot of team names is the offensive line. Enjoy Tennessee fans.

DANiball LEGter
With some names, you know that the creator tried too hard. This is one of those names.

What The F**k Is A Jeffery?
Possibly created by a fan of the Green Bay Packers or Detroit Lions to poke fun at their rival , this name is asking what a Jeffery is, as in Alshon Jeffery from the Chicago Bears. It's a reference to a scene from "Get Him to the Greek". The scene is pretty awesome and the name could also be used by an owner with Jeffery on their team as a humerous name.

I hope you enjoyed that little taste of what we've got to offer and you decide to take a look at the rest of the ideas. All the better if you add your own!

You might also check out the fantasy name generator if you want some more ideas. Good luck with your season!
