So the Lions are one of four teams to have never made the Super Bowl, they’re one of only two teams to have 0-16 seasons, and only the Cardinals have lost more games.
The good news is… well… hm.
The good news is that we’ve got a Charlie Batch of brand-new Detroit Lions fantasy football team names for 2021. All this frustration is going to make the Lions’ inevitable victory that much sweeter.
Funny Detroit Lions Fantasy Football Names
I like teams named after WR2s better than QB1s.
Leading the League in Kerrys
To be fair, I have not done the research on exactly how many Kerrys there are in the NFL. Still, this has to at least tie for the league lead, right?
Please don’t make me explain this Lions fantasy name.
Combining the two biggest QB busts in team history, because a negative times a negative equals a positive.

Perfect can mean different things to different people.

Historical Lions Fantasy Team 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.
