The Trying Art of Picking a Fantasy Football Team Name
Need a good name for your fantasy football team? The possibilities are as endless as the plays in Chip Kelly’s playbook.
Having a clever name may not guarantee any sort of success, but at least it will get the attention of people. And while no one may be impressed with your ninth-round selection of a backup tight end, they may be impressed with your play on words.
Some monikers are stale — The Brady Bunch, in honor of Tom Brady, is sooo 2003 — but a good one can makes for equally good dinner conversation and can have your opponents jealous they didn’t think of it first.
In truth, there should be a formula, like one of those name generators people share on Facebook where you take the name of your first pet and the name of your street growing up, so you’d be stuck with something like Sparky Maple. But that isn’t fun, right? No, you need imagination to make this work.
