Best fantasy football team names 2021



2021 fantasy football team

We’re very serious journalists here at SN Fantasy. We take great care in our preseason rankings, sleeper lists, strategies, and everything else that makes our cheat sheet a one-stop shop for all your drafting needs. If you don’t humiliate everyone else in your league — old college friends, idiot brother-in-law, elderly grandmother — we feel bad for about 15 seconds before forgetting about it forever and maybe going to Arby’s or something. It’s in that spirit that we present our contenders for the best fantasy football team names of 2021. 

Let’s face it — you’re probably not going to win your league. Basic math tells us that. But just because your team is destined to fail doesn’t mean you can’t be a winner at something far more important. Most of the things that derail a fantasy season, like Saquon Barkley’s health, Mike Evans’ targets, or Deshaun Watson’s (allegedly) criminal behavior, are out of our hands, but you can control whether you have a funny or creative team name. 

DOMINATE YOUR DRAFT: Ultimate 2021 Cheat Sheet

Well, that’s not totally true — you might be really bad at coming up with puns based on players’ names. Don’t worry — we’re really bad, too, and we’ve still powered through to come up with hundreds of options over the years. (Told you we were serious journalists.) There’s bound to be one on the list below that either fits your team or inspires you to come up with something much better. We have no shame, which is why you’ll see references so old even we don’t remember the source material anymore. But, again, all it takes is one good one to win over the rest of your league, so be on the lookout for that rose growing from the concrete. 

2021 STANDARD FANTASY RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker | Top 200

Before we get into this year’s list, let’s take a moment to remember some of our past favorites that are no longer of use. “Pimpin’ Ain’t Breesy,” “99 Problems But A Fitz Ain’t One,” “2 Gurleys, 1 Kupp,” “Le’Veon A Prayer,” “Turn Down For Watson,” “Stop The Spredelman,” “All You Can Ito,” and “Get Mitch Or Die Tryin'” will all be sorely missed. Make sure to thank them for their service.

2021 PPR FANTASY RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker | Top 200

Fortunately, some of this year’s top rookies have stepped in to immediately fill the void, inspiring gems like “Pitts And Giggles,” “Blow Your Waddle,” “Lance Lance Revolution,” “No Pain, No Gainwell,” “Return Of The Mac,” “Sermon On The Mount,” and, of course, “Jabba The Hut…Pizza The Hut…Fat Guys Like Pizza…Pepperoni Pizza…Pepperoni Toney.” (That one is a maybe a touch too long, but it’s perfect for the one person who’s a big fan of “The Office” and also happens to draft Kadarius Toney in their fantasy football league.)

2021 FANTASY SLEEPERS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Each team

We also have some classics, such as “Cobra Kyler,” “Fresh Prince of Helaire,” “Chark Week,” “Hurts So Good,” “Every Day I’m Gustlin’,” and “Call Of Jeudy.” You can always go COVID-related with “Dakcine Mandate,” “Robust Vantibodies,” and “Odellta Variant, and if you really want to take it to the next level in a two-QB or superflex league, pay homage to former Mizzou greats with “Get The Jabbert” and “Drew Lockdown.” If that’s too much of a bummer, try something cheerier, like “Gaskin Dobbins.” (I don’t care what anyone says, ice cream is better than the coronavirus — and you can quote me on that!)

2021 FANTASY TIERS & DRAFT STRATEGY:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST

Look, they’re not all winners, just like the the majority of fantasy football owners. We all know the best team names are usually inside jokes and/or too offensive to print here. We trust you can come up with those yourself. Keep it classy, though. “Master Bateman” is obviously fine, but tread carefully going beyond that. “Vancel Culture” is a real thing in 2021, after all. (Who knew Van Jefferson would have so much value this year?)

2021 FANTASY AUCTION VALUES (Standard & PPR):
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker | Overall

If you don’t understand any of the references below, either ignore them or go to your local library and look them up. Now, let’s get you a “W” before the season even starts.
