Washington Commanders Fantasy Football Names – 2022 Team Name Ideas

Washington Football Team Fantasy Names

The Daniel Snyder tenure in D.C. has been rough. How rough, you ask?

While researching team names, I found multiple 10 Worst Decisions of Dan Snyder’s Tenure articles. From as far back as 2010. And let’s just say the lists haven’t gotten any shorter since then.

Snyder isn’t going anywhere, but at least we can laugh at these Commanders fantasy football names. Laugh, because it beats the alternative.

Commanders Fantasy Names for 2022

I’m still getting used to the Commanders name. To be honest, it still feels like the name of a football team in a movie, like the Washington Sentinels.

But hey, Joe Theisman says that he likes it, so who am I to complain?

Terrying Ass

McLaurin Racing

Alternatively, you could go with the simpler fantasy name: McLaurin Automotive. Either way, you get the point.

Terry McLaurin is fast like a fancy-ass car.

Office of the AG

Antonio’s Line

For those WFT fans who are also fans of 1990’s indie cinema. Or big, fat box scores.

Oh, I Wentz There

McKissic My Ass

McKissic From a Rose

It’s too bad JD wasn’t on the ‘Skins a few years ago because McKissic Cousins would have been a fantastic fantasy name.

Kissic My Tonio

Dotson Trucks

This is an early Jahan Dotson team name in case he joins McLaurin and Samuels in a truly terrifying triumvirate.

D.C. Insurrectionists

Is InsurRedskinists too much of a stretch? If this is your speed, then we’ve got more political fantasy team name ideas where that came from.


Skins Game

What’s Skin a Name

This Washington fantasy team name is a subtle reference to both Romeo and Juliet and the Redskins’ naming crisis. See, in Act II, Scene II, the infamous Balcony Scene, Juliet is musing on the nature of language and the…

Sorry, I got carried away there. Moving on.

Snyder Whiplash

This Commanders team name is like the old cartoon character – remember that guy? But also because Washington fans’ necks are sore from getting yanked around by Snyder for the last few decades.

The Hogfather

ABCDC’s Nutz

There are numerous permutations for this Washington fantasy team name:

  • ABDC’s Nutz
  • CDC’s Nutz
  • DC’s Nutz.

All equally classy.

Frerotta Be Kidding Me

Lest Gus ever be able to forget his shame:

Terry McLaurin Fantasy Football Team Names

Terry McLaurin’s been pretty good the last few years. Now imagine if he’d had a legit quarterback in that time.

Scary Terrys

I’d also accept Scary Fast Terrys.

Terry McLovin

McLaurin’ It

Terring Out


This Commanders fantasy name is for all you old men still watching John Wayne movies.

Curtis Samuel Fantasy Team Names

Like Scary Terry, Curtis Samuel has managed to put up pretty good numbers despite less than favorable playing conditions. Is this the year he takes the leap into bonafide WR1 territory?

Curtis Blow By You

Curtis the Season

Samuels Gamgee

Free Samuels

Carson Wentz Fantasy Football Team Names

Carson Wentz has had an up-and-down career so far. He’s been a high draft pick, a Super Bowl champ (from the bench), an MVP candidate, and a scapegoat.

Is he destined to forever ride the rails, like some sort of hobo QB? Or will Washington finally be his forever home?

Wentzday Addams

The Wentz and Future King

This Piggy Wentz to Market

Wentzlevania 6-5000

I’m not sure if this is a Young Frankenstein reference, a Jeff Goldblum reference, or a Glen Miller reference, but either way, it’s way too old for the vast majority of people reading this article.

Antonio Gibson Fantasy Football Team Names

I like watching Gibson run because the dude changes direction with the best of ‘em. The guy is slippery as a fish in Valvoline and shiftier than my college roommate who sold “study aids”.

Gibson, Neat

This Washington Football Team fantasy name is classy, old-timey, and fun, with just a hint of alcoholism.


Return of the McGib

AG College

Historic Commanders Fantasy Football Names

The old equation is tragedy + time = comedy.

For example, it’s easy to laugh at Gus Frerotte, the Spurrier era, and even Alfred Haynesworth. Someday Dwayne Haskins, RGIII, and even the Dan Snyder era will be hilarious. Someday.




More history.

Dick’s Picks

You can also try Nix’s Picks, Tricky Dick’s Picks, or Dick Picks Skins. Or just throw all subtlety to the wind and do Dick Picks.


Spurriers Accusations

Throwing Fitz

Smithing You

Smith You Know, You Know

Those with an astute ear for puns will notice that Smith and if can be used interchangeably. Those familiar with the English language will also notice that the word if comes up frequently.

  • Smith You Give a Mouse a Cookie
  • Smith You Like Pina Coladas
  • Smith You’re Happy and You Know It
  • Smith the World Was Ending
  • Smith I Die Young
  • Smith I Ain’t Got You
  • Smith the Shoe Fits

Redskins Fantasy Football Team Names

Just because the big club doesn’t call themselves the Redskins anymore doesn’t mean you can’t! After all, we’re no stranger to inappropriate team names.

Maybe you shouldn’t, but no one is saying you can’t.

Principle Redskinners

No, it’s the children who are wrong.

What’s the Redskinny?

RedSkinny Jeans

Marlboro Redskins

Tater ‘Skins

Snyder’s Redskinflints

Joe Gibbs’ Racist Team

Because of Joe Gibbs Racing Team and, well, you know, the whole name thing.

Skin It to Win It

Godfrey Daniel, Pesky Redskins

This Redskins fantasy team name is for anyone that still remembers the Firesign Theatre.

Ron Rivera Fantasy Football Names

You may love Ron Rivera, you may hate him, but it doesn’t matter. We all know that the man who should be coaching the Redskins is still Marty Schottenheimer.

Riveraboat Gamblers

Sunday R&R

Potomac Rivera

This funny Washington Football fantasy name works with any river, the Potomac is just the most famous in D.C. You can pick a river near you, or try Snake Rivera (depending on how you feel about ol’ Ronny Rivers).

The French Rivera

Rivera of Dreams

Or just Rivera Dreams, depending on your faith in your audience’s ability to get Billy Joel puns.

Ronald Rivera McDonald

After reading that article about how he treated Alex Smith, I kinda think the dude’s a clown.

Commanders Fantasy Team Names from Around the Internet

I tried to find some quality Commanders fantasy team names for you. But to be honest, most are pretty bad.

If your list still references Roy Helu’s fantasy value, then it might be time for an update!

Wentz It Rains It Pours

You Only Live Wentz

The Sixth Wentz

Slippery Wentz Wet

Wentz Bitten, Twice Shy


Or Blood, Sugar, Fitzmagic for you Red Hot Chili Peppers fans.

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

This Washington fantasy team name is admirable, but Mr. Smith WENT to Washington might be more accurate now.

Beauty is Only Skins Deep

Zorn Staches


Washing Foreskins
