So, you’ve drafted your fantasy squad for the 2022 season. It never looks better than before the season, full of stars, breakout candidates and potential league winners. But, of course, even if you succeeded in your draft, something is still missing.
Something extremely important and essential: You must NAME your team!
(I have been told that naming your fantasy football team is neither this important neither this essential, but… well, I’m running with it, too late to go back now.)
Personally, I take the names of my teams very well, very seriously. Every time I join a new league, I change my team name to “TBD” (TBD) until draft time. Once I get my first round player, I name my team something related to it.
It’s an easy way to come up with a name (and it’s my superstitious way of hoping my first-round pick will get me to the promised land – spoiler alert: it didn’t work), but it’s like I do – there are so many ways to approach the nomination of your team.
Here are some suggestions for your Fantasy 2022 team name
Below are some of the most unique, creative, and hilarious team names from the Yahoo Fantasy community. You might just find some inspiration!
What will you do with your 30 characters when naming your team?
This name is proof that coming up with a fun and creative name for your team is easy. We can assume that this fantastic manager had Tom Brady on their team, which probably gave them a big boost last season (Brady led the league in passing yards, after all). And with Brady leading a fantastic team, it’s fitting to adopt the title of a classic sitcom for this team name.
This one might be even easier than “The Brady Bunch.” All you have to do is add a letter to Judge Judy’s name and BOOM – you’ve got a great, fantastic team name that reflects a popular candidate in the Broncos’ young receiver.
Jeudy’s path to an escape in 2022 also became much clearer, albeit in an unfortunate way, after it was announced that his colleague Tim Patrick suffered a torn ACL in training camp.
My favorite of this group. Sometimes a player’s name matches the title of something phonetically completely unrelated, combining to form a quality fantasy team name.
In this case we can take by Kyler Murray first name – the first part of “Kyler” being “Ky” which is pronounced almost the same as “Kai” – and mix it up with one of the most notorious karate dojos in pop culture history, Cobra Kai. Thus, Cobra Kyler was born. It also helps that the lightning speed at which Murray can take off at any given time isn’t too far off from a striking cobra.
“Fields of Dreams”
Justin Fields’ rookie season was more of a nightmare than a dream, but Bears fans and fantasy managers are likely still hoping for a scenario where Fields gathers his natural tools to become an elite, dual-threat fantasy option at quarterback- back.
“If you build it, it will come.” (And score a few rushing touchdowns.)
‘Diggs in a Blanket’
I’m honestly upset that I didn’t think of this one myself, considering Stefan Diggs was my second pick in a draft last season – and pigs in blankets are pretty delicious.
‘Rollin’ with MaHomies’
Patrick Mahomes, in addition to being the quarterback god of this universe, also has a last name that is good enough to turn into a fantastic team name. Specifically, the “Mahome” part of Mahomes.
And of course, what’s a fantasy league if not a way to go through the NFL season with your friends?
“Team without manager”
Jeez, this one is a bit dark or a total troll job. It also happens to be the most popular name used in 2021. What happened last year?!
So that’s our list of the most popular team names of 2021 – can you top any of them?
