    How To Choose a Fantasy Football Team Name

    While there are no official rules for picking a fantasy football team name, there are some schools of thought. The first is to base the name of the fantasy team on a player selected in the draft.

    While you can have a strategy going in, and there are more than enough creative options in this article to lean into, it’s important to remember not to name your team until after the draft! You don’t want the rest of your league to know who you’re targeting, right?

    The second route is to focus on a team name that you can use year after year. This allows everyone in the league to know whose team is yours each season, whether you play dynasty or redraft, and it also provides continuity when it shows up routinely on that league trophy.

    You’ll be winning a lot of fantasy football championships by listening to The PFN Fantasy team, so you want to be prepared ahead of time.

    What Makes a Great Fantasy Football Team Name?

    While other people may lean into obscurity for their fantasy football team name, picking a reference that only 5% of your league will understand probably isn’t the way to go.

    The thing that makes a great fantasy football team name is being able to understand your league and generate a laugh when they see it! You don’t want a boring or generic team name — like The Washington Football Team — so it’s important to be creative and come up with something that will make everyone in your league comment on how funny it is!

    When Is the Best Time To Create a Fantasy Football Team Name?

    Unless you have the first overall pick and are ready to risk it all, the best time to create a fantasy football team name is after your fantasy football draft. This applies to people who are going to name their team after a specific player, as you don’t want to name your team after Joe Burrow, for example, before the draft, and let everyone know that you’re targeting him as your starting QB.

    However, if you’re going to go for a classic and themed team name, though, there’s no better time than the present to make it public and start branding your team.

    The Risk of Using a Player’s Name in a Team Name

    Outside of letting everyone know who you’re targeting in your draft if you enter the team name too early, there’s no guarantee that you’ll have that player for the entire year!

    Whether you receive a trade offer that you can’t refuse for said player or that player gets injured and lands on injured reserve, there’s a possibility that they won’t be on your roster for all 17 games. There’s nothing more awkward than having a team name centered around one player … and that player being on someone else’s roster.
