Editor’s Pick – Forgetting Brandon Marshall: Top 20 Funniest Fantasy Football Team Names Ever

Everybody loves fantasy football season. You can win a little extra dough, but it’s more than that. You want bragging rights over your friends. You want to show everybody how much you love and know about football.

Another fun aspect is constructing a cool fantasy team name. You want to make your friends laugh and/or groan. Now that Mother’s Day is long behind us, attacks on mothers with a team name become quite prevalent. 

Just make sure you keep it fresh. Michael Vick ones were old last year.  Using them this year will exemplify just how out of touch you’ve become.  Anything Charlie Sheen-related was good when fantasy baseball started, but the jokes are old. 

With some thought, you can craft a winning fantasy football team name. I know, I tossed that out there to illustrate how the Charlie Sheen lines have become dated.

20. Texas Chainsaw Massaquoi

Texas Chain Saw Massacre.  Cleveland’s Mohamed Massaquoi.  See how the play on words works?

19. Eli-the Other White Manning

Pork the other white meat is a popular advertising slogan for the prok industry.  Eli Manning, is the other Manning in terms of popularity and production.  They come together to merge this controversial team name.

18. Corn On The Schaub

Matt Schaub was a popular choice in fantasy team name circles. His name will resurface in this list, but this one is so good you have to lick your fingers.

17. Favre Dollar Footlongs

Brett Favre is another guy with multiple entries.  This one is a well-known play on Subway’s slogan.

16. Breakin 2 Electric Legedu

If you grew up in the ’80′s, how can you not like this marriage of Legedu Naanee and Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo.

15. Two Mannings, One Cup

This one is about as offensive as it gets…if you know where the name is derived from.  I’ll leave it at that.

14. Show Me Your TDs

Simple and enough of a twist to make that team owner feel witty. It’s far from ingenious, but popular enough to make the list.

13. A Rivers Runs Suh It

You’ll probably see Ndamukong Suh names popping up everywhere this year.  The Phillip Rivers-Suh combo was one of my favorites. 

12. The Godfavre

This one came to light last year after he murdered opposing defenses.  After last season, you may see someone use The Grandfavre.

11. A Kolb Day in Hell

 This one only works if you pronounce Kevin Kolb’s name like it looks rather than how it sounds.  Funny thing is at the time it sounded like a cool name, but it actually became an accurate description of how Kolb’s season went in the end.

10. Forgetting Brandon Marshall

 Forgetting Sarah Marshall was a pretty funny movie.  The NFL wishes the fans could forget some of Brandon Marshall’s off-the-field issues. 

9. Dezzie Does Dallas

Going old school with this one combining Dez Bryant with a prevalent adult film.

8. Revis and Butthead

If you watched MTV in the ’90′s, you are quite familiar with Beavis and Butthead.  

I am the GreatCornholio! I need TP for my bunghole!”  Obviously Darrelle Revis is the former.  Bart Scott can be the latter.

7. Ix-Nay on the Heyward-Bey

Darrius Heyward-Bey may not have made much of an impact so far, but he has inspired a cool fantasy team name.

6. Henne Nut Cheerios

Chad Henne may not start any time soon, but he has a team name that will live in infamy. 

5. Cassel Greyskull

Another one established for ’80′s kids; He-Man fans gotta love it.

4. Cooley Than The Other Side of The Pillow

This one is too long for actual use, but it’s quite funny nonetheless.

3. Schaub Shank Redemption

There were other X-rated names associated with Matt Schaub, along with number 18 Corn on the Schaub, but this one is my favorite. 

2. ScoobyDrewBreesDoo!

This one still brings a smile to my face.

1. Kibbles and Vicks

I don’t condone Michael Vick’s actions in any way, but I got a kick out of this team name.
