So you’ve assembled your fantasy team for the 2022 season. It never looks better than before the season, full of stars, breakthrough contenders and potential league winners. But of course, even if you have successfully completed your design, something is still missing.
Something extremely important and essential: you must NAME your team!
(I’ve been told that naming your fantasy football team is neither the important still the essential, but…well, I’m running with it, too late to turn back now.)
[Set, hut, hike! Create or join a fantasy football league now!]
I personally take the naming of my teams very much, very Serious. Every time I join a new league, I’ll change my team name to “TBD” (To be determined) by draft time. Once I’ve secured my first round player, I name my team after something related to them.
This is an easy way to come up with a name (and it’s my superstitious way of hoping my round one pick will take me to the promised land – spoiler alert: it didn’t work), but this is just how I do it – there There are so many ways you can go about naming your team.
Here are some suggestions for your 2022 fantasy team name
Below are some of the most unique, creative, and fun team names from the Yahoo Fantasy community. You might find inspiration!
What will you do with your 30 characters when it comes time to name your team?
‘The Brady Covenant’
This name is a testament to how easy it is to come up with a fun, creative name for your team. We can assume this had fantasy managers Tom Brady their team, which probably gave them a big boost last season (Brady led the league in passing yards, after all). And with Brady at the helm of a fantasy team, it’s just fitting to take the title of a classic sitcom for that 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 have a great fantasy team name that reflects a popular breakout candidate in the Broncos’ young receiver.
Jeudy’s path to a 2022 breakout also became a lot clearer, albeit in an unfortunate manner, after news broke that this guy was way out there Tim Patrick suffered a cruciate ligament tear in the training camp.
My favorite from this bunch. Sometimes a player’s name matches the title of something completely unrelated on a phonetic level and combines into a high quality fantasy team name.
In this case we can take Kyler Murrays First names — the first part of “Kyler” is “Ky,” which is pronounced almost identically to “Kai” — and mix it up with one of the most notorious karate dojos in pop culture history, Cobra Kai. This is how Cobra Kyler is born. It also helps that the lightning speed Murray can take off at any moment isn’t too far off from a Cobra prank.
“Fields of Dreams”
Justin Fields’ rookie season was more of a nightmare than a dream, but Bears fans and fantasy executives are likely still hoping for a scenario where Fields uses his natural tools to create an elite dual-threat fantasy option to become a quarterback.
“When you build it, he will come.” (And score a few rushing touchdowns.)
‘Diggs in a Blanket’
I’m honestly upset that I didn’t think of it myself, considering Stefan Diggs was my second choice in a design last season—and pigs in blankets are pretty yummy.
‘Rollin With MaHomies’
Patrick Mahomes, aside from being this universe’s quarterback god, he also goes by a last name that’s pretty good at morphing into a fantasy team name. Specifically, the “Mahome” part of Mahomes.
And of course, what’s a fantasy league if not a way to roll through the NFL season with your homies?
Jeez, this is kinda obscure or a total troll job. It is also the most popular name used in 2021. What the heck happened last year?!
So that’s our list of the most popular team names of 2021 – can you top any of them?
