32 NFL-Inspired Fantasy Football Team Names

By Matt Schauf | Updated on Tue, 23 May 2023 . 1:27 PM EDT

It's finally football season. How happy are you with your fantasy football team name?

If you're like me, you head into every fall trying to come up with something clever ... and almost always fall maddeningly short.

Well, I'm tired of cringing at my wholly uncreative team names and shouting "Why didn't I think of that?" whenever I see a witty creation on Twitter. So, armed with the Notes function on my iPod Touch and several trips to the playground with my 3 children, I came up with this list of team names inspired by players (or coaches) from each NFL team.

They're not all good. (Heck, you might think they all suck.) But just like a daily workout, I got through it and can finally move on. And if you have any better suggestions, please feel free to share them in the comments section below.
