Fantasy Football Team Names are huge! Seriously. I’d been in the industry for awhile and seen what kind of traffic goof Fantasy content attracted. Then I partnered with good friend David Gonos over at SoCalledFantasyExperts.com and saw how his 251+ Horribly Awesome Fantasy Football Team Names and Logos did and I was amazed. Here I was working my butt off trying to create incredibly useful Fantasy tools, and people were more interested in what to name their damn team. People might not be willing to read a 1200 post that might help them win their league, but they damn sure wanted to make their leaguemates laugh on draft day.
What I’ve done below is link to every semi-useful source of Fantasy Football Team Names and highlight three of their top names. I was a little worried about borrowing their ideas, but as you’ll see, many of the names have been borrowed all over the place, I have no idea where most of these names originated. I’ll try to point out when a site has more original ideas.
Also I tried to use team names that referred to players active in 2017, but some of the historical ones were just too good to pass up. I mean making fun of Brett Favre is timeless, right?

Top Fantasy Football Team Names for 2017

4FOR4.com Fantasy Football Team Names – The guys at 4FOR4 do a lot of things right and their team names don’t disappoint. What I like that they’ve done is grouped their names by theme. Political, musical, Star Wars, and of course a bunch with no real purpose but to be really funny.
Ranker.com The Best Fantasy Team Names – It looks like the whole idea of ranker.com is to let you upvote and downvote different things to determine which is best. It works well here even if some of the names are a bit older. According to them the Top 3 names of all-time are:
Blog.CustomInk.com 40 Creative Fantasy Football League Names for 2017 – The page says league names, but honestly some of these would work for teams as well. The real question is will a site called Custom Ink, permanently etch one of these team names in your flesh… and do you have the balls to find out?
SportsGrid.com 24 New Fantasy Football Team Names w/ 2017 Rookies – There’s that Gonos character again and you know these names are new because they’re all based on 2017 NFL rookies. That mean’s fresh meat!

SI.com 50 names for your fantasy football team – More names from the media big boys. Gotta give ’em credit. A lot of these names seem to be exclusive to this site.
Reddit.com Team Names for 2017 – Leave it to Reddit to take things just a little further. I leave no moral judgement on their use of Aaron Hernandez’s recent passing as fodder for team names. Of course my Coke Zero came out my nose when I read a few of these.
DavidGonos.com 19 Ideas for Fantasy Football League Names & 69 Team Names – He’s back! This time it’s on his own site and he’s bringing league names as well as a few fresh team names. Here are three of the Fantasy Football League Names he throws out there.

ESPN991.com Top Funny, Witty Fantasy Football Team Names – This list is from 2014 and I thought about not including it… BUT it has some classics in here that deserve to stay alive.
Al Pal Fantasy Football, The Top 50 Fantasy Football Team Names – We went pretty deep in our quest for team names and this site popped up on page 4 of our google search. This may just be a smaller blog, but they have quite a few team names I haven’t seen on any other site.
FantasyJocks.com The Ultimate List of Fantasy Football Team Names – This site has a huge list with some reruns and some original. What I really like here though are their three no-no’s when choosing a team name. There should be no…
Fantasy Football Team Names Generators
In addition to the numerous sites above that provided straight lists of Fantasy Football Team names, there were several sites that featured some form of random name generators. I’m not sure I’m on board with these, but I’ll share some of the names they generated for me and let you decide for yourself.
FantasyFootball.SportsUnlimitedInc.com Fantasy Football Name Generator – You can choose your favorite team or have a name generated randomly. Here are three I got when choosing to use a random name.
FFToolbox Funny Fantasy Team Names – I like almost everything Scout’s FFToolbox does, but I’m not so sure about this. This page generates team names, but it’s completely random in a way that has little to do with sports at all. Here are some examples.
Razzball Fantasy Football Team Name Generator – Razzball is an awesome site and they do everything with an extra helping of attitude. As you would expect they approached this task unlike any other site. Basically you get to choose a category of adjectives, and a type of noun and Razzball generates a team name. Here’s a screen shot of the selection interface.
Not sure I’d commit to any name without knowing ahead of time, but it was fun seeing just what came out. Here are three names I got with a mix of the options.
