So the Lions are one of four teams to have never made the Super Bowl. That’s not great, but at least they’re a fairly recent expansion team.
What’s that? They’ve been around since the 1930 season? Ooooooh nooooooooo…
These Detroit Lions fantasy football names celebrate the good, the bad, and the weird of football in the Motor City.
Detroit Lions Fantasy Team Names for 2023
Lions fans were very classy when Matt Stafford won a Super Bowl out in LA. I saw 90% supportive messages, with only one or two sour grapes in the bunch.
How long that graciousness will extend to Stafford’s trade partner Jared Goff remains to be seen.
Fordained by Goff
Goff and Running
In case you have Jared Goff and some good running backs, not because Jared Goff is fast. Because he is not.
D-Swift’s Reputation Tour
D’Andre Swift is my pick for a Lions breakout player. I think he’s got a top ten season in him – and maybe even better.
We just had to make a whole list of Amon-Ra St. Brown fantasy team names. His name is Amon-Ra St. Brown – how could we not?
If Jameson Williams does indeed end up rocking, that’s going to give Jared Goff one heck of a receiving corps.
Shakespeare’s Romeo and Julien
The Okwara’s parents had to know what they were doing, right? If not, that’s a crazy coincidence.
But if so, they named two brothers after a famous couple? Strange either way.
Return to Sanders
After the barren wasteland that has been post-Barry RB’s in Detroit, a return to Sanders sounds pretty good. So what if he is in his 50’s by now?
Now this could make for a pretty solid photoshop, if one were so inclined. Maybe a pic of Calvin Johnson flexing, but replace his arms with Megatron-style guns?
Combining the two biggest QB busts in team history because a negative times a negative equals a positive?
A Millen Reasons
Ultimately the Lions couldn’t find one good one for him to stay.
The Lions are Perfect
Perfect can mean different things to different people.
Jared Goff Fantasy Football Names
Jared Goff’s career is off to a solid start, but he doesn’t get the same respect as the top QBs. Geeze, crap in your pants in one Super Bowl and that’s all anyone seems to remember.
Going on the Goffensive
Or Prolific Goffense, Goffensive MVP – you get the idea.

T.J. Hockenson Fantasy Team Names
I’m thrilled to see Hockenson in the NFL for a couple of reasons:
- His ability to create separation from an overly-instinctive defender
- My ability to create a team name idea from his easily-malleable surname
Hock of Seagulls
Hock and Roll
Hocked and Loaded
The Hard Hock Hotel
Hock Itch Cream
My Pet Hock
Hockin’ the Hock
DJ Chark Fantasy Football Team Names
DJ Chark has emerged as a Pro Bowl quality receiver with an All-Star name.

Don’t open your eyes!
Historical Detroit Lions Fantasy Football Names
Out of the top ten rushing seasons in Lions history, Barry Sanders owns the 9th and 10th best. Then good ol’ Billy Sims comes in at number eight.
After that, it’s all Sanders all the way up.
Barry My Heart at Wounded ACL
Sander and Son
