Washington Football Team Fantasy Football Names – 2021 Team Name Ideas

Washington Football Team Fantasy Names

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

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

Snyder may be sticking around, but at least the team’s offensive name is getting an update! So enjoy these “Washington Football Team” fantasy names until we know what the new official name is (never).

Washington Football Team Fantasy Names for 2021

“Redtails” and “RedWolves” have emerged as the frontrunners for Washington’s new team name brand. But they could just stay the WFT.

If Snyder wants to name them after himself, and you know he does, he could call them the Petty AFs.

D.C. Insurrectionists

Is InsurRedskinists too much of a stretch? We’ve got more political fantasy team name ideas where that came from.


WFT with Marc Laurin

You have to be a podcast nerd to get this one. But if you are, then you get this one.

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

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.

Dwayne Haskins’ Lonely Playbook

Poor Dwayne Haskins really got a raw deal… from Dwayne Haskins.

Haskins Too Much

Down the Dwayne

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.

That’s a fantasy monster waiting to happen!

McLaurin Racing

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

He’s fast, like a fancy-ass car.

Scary Terrys

I’d also accept Scary Fast Terrys.

Terry McLovin

McLaurin’ It

Terring Out

Terring Ass


This Washington Football Team fantasy name is for all you old men still watching John Wayne movies.

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.

Antonio’s Line

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

Alex Smith Fantasy Football Team Name Ideas

The Washington Football Team is going to miss Alex Smith when he’s gone. But let’s be honest, it’s not like they appreciated him while he was there.

Smithing You

Dancing With the Smiths

I also like The Smith and Theisman School of Dance. But then again, I’m sick in the head.

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

Funny Washington Football Team Fantasy Football Names

The old equation is tragedy + time = comedy.

For example, we’re able to laugh at Gus Frerotte’s headbutt and the Spurrier era. By this logic, someday Dwayne Haskins, RGIII, and even the Dan Snyder era will be hilarious.

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.




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

Frerotta Be Kidding Me

Lest Gus ever be able to forget his shame:

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, but 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.

Washington Football Team Fantasy Names from Around the Internet

I tried to find some quality Washington Football Team fantasy 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!

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

Hardcore Zorn Addict

Zorn Stache

Just a little classier than Zorn Addict.
