Steelers Fantasy Football Names

The clock has finally struck midnight on Big Ben’s career. And there are Pittsburgh fans who can legally vote but have never seen another Steelers quarterback (well, other than when Roethlisberger was injured or suspended)

Ok, so there are Steelers fans that can vote but have never seen another good Steelers quarterback.

So today, I present our 2023 Pittsburgh Steelers fantasy football names celebrating the next chapter in Steel City history.

Pittsburgh Steelers Fantasy Football Names for 2023

As Jack Lambert said in his immortal Hall of Fame introduction speech:

“If I could live my life over, I’d be a fantasy player. And you damn well better believe I’d name my team after the Pittsburgh Steelers!”

Or something like that.

Mr. Steeler Girl

Liars, Cheaters, and Steelers


This Steelers fantasy team name can be modified in any number of ways:

  • Steelite Skills
  • Steelitists
  • Steelite Team
  • Steelite School

You Can’t Diontame the Beast

Season of the Mitch

High Wattage

Watts Up

Here are several other derivations on the Watts-What’s Steelers fantasy team name theme:

  • Watts Up Witchu
  • Watts New
  • Watts Happening
  • Watts the Buzz
  • Watts Your Problem
  • Watts Your Damage
  • Watts the Situation

First Round Pickett

Steelers fans hope this is just the start of many years worth of Kenny Pickett fantasy names. Heck, if they get half as many out of him as they got from Ben Roethlisberger, then they’ll be ecstatic.

Pickett Fences

Pickens of the Litter

The Steelers went Pickett, then Pickens with their picks. I hope those two have a long career together, if only for the fantasy team name potential.

Stuck in Bergertory

This Steelers fantasy name hints at what having Mitch Trubisky as your quarterback may feel like (after having Ben Roethlisberger for nearly two decades).

This Team is Freier

Freiered Up

Championship Chase

Bradshawwww Yeaaah


Psycho Ward

Hines’ #7

This Steelers fantasy football team name idea is a reference to either Steelers championship #7 or possibly to Hines Ward’s favorite QB.

And, of course, it’s a reference to the underrated ketchup alternative.


Because Heinz Feild is in the past – it’s Acrisure Stadium now, like it or not. And I’m guessing you do not because that name is objectively terrible.

Draculas in Cleats

Najee Harris Fantasy Team Names

Crazy prediction time: Najee Harris becomes the next Steeler to go over 2000 yards from scrimmage. Maybe it happens, perhaps it doesn’t. But I want it in writing just in case.

Plus, if it never happens, I can just return and delete this. Win-win!

Najee Whiz

Najeep Wranglers

Ya or Najee?

Najee By Nature

Najeenius of Football

Diontae Johnson Fantasy Football Team Names

The Steelers have churned out impressive wide receivers for years. But the Antonio Browns and JuJu Smith-Schusters are gone. Now, it’s Diontae Johnson’s time.

If you’re feeling nostalgic, you can always check out our Antonio Brown fantasy names and JuJu Smith-Schuster fantasy names articles.

A Diontaste of Things to Come

Diontataste of Pittsburgh

DJ Catches

Not to give away too many industry secrets, but you can put pretty much anything after DJ. For example:

  • DJ Hands
  • DJ YAC
  • DJ Steel
  • DJ Titletown

Diontake a Breath

Diontake a Minute, Diontake Your Time, etc.

The Dionte Hall Problem

This one might be just for me.

Mitchell Trubisky Fantasy Football Team Names

Remember when Mitch Trubisky made the Pro Bowl in only his second season? After his last few years, that seems crazier than an Antonio Brown Instagram post.

Karma’s a Mitch

Mitched Blessings

Too Good To Be Trubisky


Mitch, Please!

Tru Believers

Get Mitch or Die Tryin’

Little Mitch Can’t Be Wrong

Spin Doctors anyone? Anyone? Anyone?

Mike Tomlin Fantasy Football Team Names

Mike Tomlin has gone from being one of the youngest coaches in the league to one of the longest-tenured. I guess going to the Super Bowl in two out of your first four seasons buys a little job security.

Very Tomlinteresting

If your league plays for serious money, Let’s Make This Tomlinteresting might be a better idea for a Steelers fantasy team name.

Tomlin to You

Let Me Tomlin

You can also go with Let Me Tomlin to Your Heart if you want to be sweet. Or Let Me Tomlin the House if you want to be creepy.

Tomlin’s Trippin’

In case you forgot this gem:

Ben Roethlisberger Fantasy Football Team Names

Big Ben leaves the Steelers as their career leader in everything. Here are just some of his records:

  • Most passing attempts
  • Most completions
  • Most touchdown passes
  • Most wins as a QB
  • Most game-winning drives



Big Ben Strikes

Berger King

Ben Around

If your league allows the characters, you could go with Ben Around the Block.

Pittsburgh Steelers Fantasy Team Names from Around the Web

Q: How many Steelers fans does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: Two – one to change this bulb, and another to stand around talking about how great the last six were.
