Fantasy football is serious business. It’s an eternal struggle on the virtual gridiron that can inflate egos, destroy friendships, and ruin your new 60-inch LCD TV after you smash it with a beer bottle because Peyton Manning can’t complete a pass to save his life (he’s clearly doing this to you on purpose because he knows you need a win this week to make the playoffs).

Here at 100 Yards and Running, we’re committed to getting you all of the latest fantasy coverage. But before you start sifting through draft-rankings, team projections, and injury reports, you need to make the most important decision of your fantasy season (and possibly your entire life).

You need to choose your fantasy football team name.

There are dozens of ways you can go about choosing a team name. So let’s begin…

It can be a mash-up between a player name and a pop culture reference.

Rice Rice Baby

Favre Dollar Footlong

Where the F*@& is (Mike) Wallace?

Anquan Boldin the Beautiful

An irreverent reference to a specific player or team.

Wes Welker’s Failing Follicles.

There’s Piss in my Blood

The Boiling Condoms

The Detroit DUIs

Asante Samuel’s Thickness (A Sean Tomlinson creation, possibly the greatest team name ever)

My personal favourite: Simpsons references.


Kirk Van Houten’s Borrowed Feelings


Snack Related Mishap

Joey Joe Joe Junior Shabadoo

In Rod We Trust

My personal fantasy football team name: Tom Selleck’s Moustache Combs. Feel free to make some suggestions in the comments and I’ll feature the best ones in a future post.
