After creating custom fantasy cheat sheets, the second-most enjoyable activity of the NFL preseason is naming your fantasy football team. More often than not, owners approach this decision with humor in mind, in an attempt to best each other for the funniest fantasy football team name in their league.
Creating Funny Team Names
One popular approach is to form a team name pun by combining an NFL player's name with something else, such as a related subject matter or a current event associated with that player. This method of developing a team name generally works well, but the hilarity of a name can sometimes be lost without a logo or other visual aid to complement it.
Adding Unique Logos and Original Backstories
There are scores of fantasy football websites which provide static lists of funny fantasy football names, so I have taken it upon myself to up the ante. In this article I not only list the top 21 funniest fantasy football team names for the 2015 season, but also provide customized team logos for each team name. And as an added bonus, I also created original parodies of each logo to round-out the team name concept.
Most of these team name concepts are appropriate for all fantasy leagues, while others are dirty, vulgar, and downright offensive. But if they weren't so outrageous, they just wouldn't be as funny now would they?
Share these Logos or Create your Own
You are free to download these logos/memes, share the images on social media, and use them in your fantasy football leagues. Need a unique logo designed for your own fantasy team? Work with the graphic designer who helped me bring these concepts to life and get a custom-designed logo for only $5!

The Adrian Beatersons
Amid troubling accusations of child abuse, Minnesota Vikings’ super-star running back Adrian Peterson was suspended without pay for much of the 2014 season. All-told, the league-imposed vacation likely cost the All-Pro upwards of $4 million dollars. For a man who is actively ‘fathering’ seven or more children from six different women, that’s a tough pill to swallow.
Strapped for cash, A.P. and his agent spent the off-season searching for ways by which to capitalize on the ordeal that left him near penniless. Following rumors of film crew sightings at Petersons' residence, it has been confirmed that Fox is producing a new reality TV show based on life at the Peterson household, aptly titled The Adrian Beatersons.
Taking a cue from popular "Scared Straight" documentaries, troubled ghetto youth are sent to the Peterson Ranch where they experience, first-hand, his archaic brand of child-rearing. Berated for transgressions and faced with the dreaded switch or spoon quandary, the delinquents learn quickly enough that it doesn’t pay to misbehave.
Many of the hoodlums return home with both physical and emotional scars, but for some there is a ray of hope. Those who are able to correct their behavior are rewarded with a celebratory orgy hosted by Peterson, ultimately returning to the projects with a new, positive outlook on life.
