When it comes to selecting your fantasy football team name for the upcoming season, there are a lot of great names going around that are hilarious, vulgar, funny, and all of them need to be used. There are names related to criminal actions, television shows, even popular New York City nightclubs and restaurants, and many other inspirations. In just the past week there have been dozens of new names submitted to our database for use in the 2014 fantasy football season. This article gives you some background on 50 of the best.
A quick note: Fantasy Football Names is What We Do. So, after you read this article, containing a meager 50 of our over 1000 names take a look at the categories on the right and use them to drill down to just what you're looking for! You're welcome to add your own as well. Now, on to the names.Fourth and Snort
A good fantasy name will create some laughs, even when the actual circumstances behind the inspiration are negative. The Cleveland Browns had the misfortune of having a player die from a cocaine overdose in the 1980s and this name touches on that situation. Of course, the motivation this year is the pictures of Cleveland’s rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel being photographed with a rolled up 5 dollar bill in the bathroom of a resturaunt. Rumors abound about what he was planning to do with that! Silence, I Khalil You
The Oakland Raiders used a fifth pick in this year’s draft on the linebacker from Buffalo. This team name will sound familiar to those who watch Jeff Dunham and his comedy acts. Kaepern Crunch
Colin Kaepernick was the hot-name for fantasy football team names a couple years ago and this name is one more to add to the list. This name used Captain Crunch cereal as inspiration, which could distract those hungry general managers on draft day.Cruz-N-4-A-Bruisen
Victor Cruz is one of the most talented wide receivers in the sport. His salsa dancing-self has made for some interesting fantasy team names in the past, and while this isn’t overly creative, it gets the point across well. Patriots Pistol Offense
For the next 20 years, there will be plenty of fantasy team names about the Patriots because of their relationship with Aaron Hernandez. Good or bad, he will continue to be in the spotlight because of his idiotic actions.The Goodell Boys
The good ‘ol boys is a saying that has been around for decades. This version of the name can be used because of the NFL commissioner’s hard stance on almost anything that makes the league look poor.Orange is the New Blackmon
Orange is the New Black is a popular series on Netflix and the last word can be revised to fit any player with black in their name including Jacksonville Jaguar Justin Blackmon, who is currently out because of suspension.The Forte Forte Club
The 40/40 Club is one of the best hotspots in New York City for anyone looking to catch a their favorite celebrity or athlete, but whether or not Chicago Bear standout running back Matt Forte hangs out there doesn’t matter to his fans.Obi-Wan Jacoby
Jacoby Jones became an instant star in the Super Bowl a couple seasons ago and it is shocking to me that his name was never used in this manner. Obi-Wan Kenobi is a popular character from the Star Wars franchise.Run DRC
In New York, the competition over being the best team is a hotly contested one between the Giants and the Jets. In their effort to win the competition, the Giants added Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (DRC) to their roster. This is a play on Run DMC the hip hop group from back in the day.Hakeem Like a Wrecking Ball
It has been easy for fans to come up with fantasy football team names related to former New York Giants and current Indianapolis Colts wide receiver. With the popularity of the Miley Cyrus song, “Wrecking Ball,” this name became possible.Gore Score and 7 Yards Ago
Each season, Frank Gore is used as inspiration for funny team names. This is one that used history as inspiration, with Abraham Lincoln’s famous Gettysburg Address being the inspiration.The Day After Amaro
The Day After Tomorrow is a popular end of the world type movie and Jace Amaro is a rookie tight end with the New York Jets. The two just go together perfectly for this name.Decker Like Rice Dunn
This is one of those names that will create some laughs to some, but will also be looked down on by some fans. In case you don’t know what the inspiration for this name was, just Google Ray Rice and you’ll find out. Seriously, be prepared for some cross looks from your league mates if you try this one.Pardon the Interception
Fantasy team names can come from almost anything and this one comes from the ESPN hit show, Pardon the Interruption. Turn Down for Watt!
One of the most popular songs out right now comes from Lil’ Jon called, “Get Down for What.” J.J. Watt is the top defensive end in the sport and this name fits both the song and the player well.Legion of Womb
In Seattle, the secondary is known as the Legion of Boom. This name, which is ideal for female players, is a creative and cool variation on the name of the group.Va Jay Jay Cutler
For as long as Jay Cutler plays the sport of football, his manhood will be questioned. Whether it is his knee or just a bad hair day, he sits the bench way too often for no good reason.You Knowshon Nothing Jon Snow
Current events is another way fantasy football players come up with names and this one uses that, as well as star running back for the Denver Broncos, Knowshon Moreno as inspiration. Also, know your meme people, and keep up with Game of Thrones. Excellent entertainment.Beast Chode
This name might be a little vulgar for some, so use your imagination here. The inspiration behind this was of course Marshawn Lynch and his miraculous run several years ago in the NFC playoffs.Greene Pastures
Greene is the running back for the Tennessee Titans who fled New York for greener pastures and a big pay check. The Cutler Did It
The butler did it in the study with a knife. Of course, this is from Clue, the popular board game. Jay Cutler strikes again.Winslow’s WalMart Wanks
Kellen Winslow II was a tight end that helped bring about a new breed at the position. Unfortunately for him, he will be working at WalMart this season after not getting a contract with any team.Pryor Arrangements
Terrelle Pryor was expected to do more this season for the Oakland Raiders, but then he was traded to the Seattle Seahawks, where he will now be lucky to play during garbage time.Save a Bronco Ride a Cowboy
This is a name that can be used mostly by female players and those looking to stir the pot in their fantasy league.Second Hand Smoke
Josh Gordon is the NFLs poster-boy of what not to do. He is one of the best wide receivers in the league, but will likely be suspended for the entire season. He is claiming that he tested positive for marijuana because of second hand smoke.MantiChrist Superstar
Manti Te’o and his catfishing issue was the inspiration behind a lot of team names a year ago. This time around, people haven’t forgotten about his fake girlfriend, but will just use their mind a little more to come up with names.Ultra-Violent Ray
This Ray Rice themed team name is hilarious and wrong at the same time. That is what makes it so great.Elevator Domesticator
Even if you disagree with using criminal actions as an inspiration for your team name, you will have to admit that this team name is hilarious. Ray Rice allegedly knocked his wife unconscious in an elevator spat. SMH.Scobee Dooby Doooooo
Not often are kickers used as the inspiration behind a fantasy football team name, but the Jacksonville Jaguars kicker is the man behind the name.Macaroni and Brees
Drew Brees has been around the NFL for so long that it is shocking this name wasn’t popular five years ago. At first sight, this should cause you to chuckle, as it did us here at Fantasy Football Team Names. Motion in the Knowshon
A little motion in the Knowshon will get you a long way in your next relationship. After all, it’s not the size of the boat, it’s the - if you don’t believe me, just ask the Denver Broncos.Kelechi of the Dothraki
If kickers almost never get a fantasy team named after them, it happens even less for offensive lineman. Any fan of Game of Thrones will recognize this name as inspiration and it just so happens that Kelechi Osemele’s name fits perfectly.Origami Johnny
Johnny Manziel is giving the Cleveland Browns hope for the future and this team name, related to Johnny’s rolling up of dollar bills in the bathroom (what’s up with that?), will give those fans something to name their fantasy roster of studs.Washington Pale Face Devils
There has been a lot of talk about the Washington Redskins possibly changing their logo. Aside from knowing that, this team name doesn’t need any more reasoning.Sunday Mornin WoodHead
On most days, men around the world wake up with morning wood. On Sunday mornings, when filling out our winning lineups, we will get a little Sunday morning woodhead.Ndamukong the unSuhllied
Ndamukong Suh has done a lot to make many fans hate him, but for fans of the Detroit Lions, there is nothing he could do wrong. Te'o me she is fo real
Whoops. Guess we couldn’t make it through this list without a team name revolving around Manti Te’o and his fake girlfriend.Cutler Commandos
Jay Cutler makes the list again with Cutler Commandos. You can use your own rationale and/or reasoning if you decide to use this name. Dez-structions
Dez Bryant is a player that has all the talent in the world and there are plenty of names out there for fantasy football managers including this one.Manning Missile Launch
Peyton and Eli Manning are two of the most talented quarterbacks in the league. Eli may throw a lot of interceptions, but one thing they both do well is throw missiles down the field to their intended (and unintended - depending on the Manning) targets. Manning United F.C.
Another Manning-brother themed name is this one. Both Eli and Peyton do a lot outside of football and maybe one day, they will start their own soccer team.All Hail Megatron!
The things Calvin Johnson does on the field each Sunday boggles the mind. It is almost like the first time you ever saw the real Megatron in Transformers. She Lucks my Fleener
Coby Fleener is the tight end for the Indianapolis Colts and this name could be considered borderline wrong by some, but for the most part, will create a few laughs during the season. If someone in your league has a problem with this name, you should probably change to one of the Ray Rice themed names just out of spite. Romeo and Juliot
The first Atlanta Falcon-themed name to crack this list is Romeo and Juliot. If Julio Jones can stay healthy, he could help the Falcons compete again this season.Pimpin Ain’t Easley
Marcus Easley is a wide receiver for the Buffalo Bills. The former University of Connecticut player is the inspiration behind this NFL fantasy team name, which can also be used in other sports with players of the same name.OpThomas Prime
Demaryius Thomas is on his way to a long career with the Denver Broncos and is Calvin Johnson is Megatron, Thomas will be Optimus Prime.Trim Your Reggie Bush
Another hilarious and politically incorrect name for the upcoming season is Trim Your Reggie Bush. Over the years, there have been countless funny names about Bush, but this may be the best of all time.How Does Mike Ditka Taste?
When Mike Ditka began playing football, little did he know he would become a Godsend to fantasy managers. This team name is another on the line of crude and downright funny. Spiller Genuine Draft
C.J. Spiller is the running back for the Buffalo Bills and Miller Genuine Draft is the Champagne of Beers. The two fit together perfectly for this incredible fantasy football team name.
