The NFL season is here. That means football fever is sweeping the nation, and fantasy football drafts are taking place every single day.
No matter where you go, you’ll find people talking about their favorite players or debating who will be the number one pick in their upcoming draft. And with so many different teams to choose from, it can be hard to come up with a creative team name for your fantasy league. But don’t worry! We’ve created this blog post to help you avoid some of the most common mistakes that people make when naming their team in order to create an original, witty name instead.
1) Don’t use a player’s actual last name: There are over 1 million Russell Wilsons on Facebook, and we’re all members of the same fantasy football league. Even if you spelled it just a little bit differently, there’s still going to be confusion.
This can also happen with other common last names like Smith or Johnson.
Instead, try thinking about your favorite NFL player from another team that has a funny name: For example, “The Michael Vicktourage” is unlikely to cause any mix-ups!
Also consider using an adjective instead of their first name: The Seahawks Squad will be easy for everyone to keep track of this way! You could even use their jersey number in place of their actual first name. This tactic works best when there are only a few players on each team who share the same
People in the Seattle area are feeling pretty good about their football team this year.
The Seahawks have made it to two Super Bowls and won one of them, going 12-14 since 2004 (the last loss was a nail biter against Green Bay). 2016 will be another exciting season for Wilson with new weapons like Jimmy Graham and Tyler Lockett to throw too.
However, fantasy owners should not get too excited just yet. Russell’s name has become synonymous with “overrated” thanks to his many bad games that just don’t live up to expectations. In fact, he is currently ranked as the fourth worst quarterback according Pro Football Focus–ahead of only Carson Palmer and Jay Cutler!
