The great thing about a funny fantasy football loser trophy is that your entire league can enjoy it. OK, maybe it is appreciated by everyone except for the owner who receives it. But still, 11 out of 12 isn't bad!
In much the same way that a fantasy football belt or other prize promotes healthy competition, a funny loser trophy can help to motivate the worst teams in your league to avoid the shame of being the worst team.
In this article, I rate and review the most appalling and embarrassing loser trophies for your fantasy football leagues in 2018.

Funny Fantasy Football Loser Trophy Guide
When researching the funniest fantasy football trophies for league losers, I narrowed my focus to the most humiliating trophies possible. In this review, I tried to choose a variety of hilarious trophies to give you a wide range of prizes to choose from, based on your level of depravity.
Although most of the items reviewed are meant to be last place fantasy football trophies, you can award these for just about any embarrassing performance. For instance, you could award a funny fantasy trophy for:
- Lowest total score
- Worst coaching decisions
- Dumbest team name
Fantasy football loser trophies are inexpensive
One of the reasons that every league should invest in a funny loser trophy is that they are cheap compared to other league prizes. Also, these are not the type of fantasy prizes that you buy every year.
Fantasy football leagues generally buy a loser trophy once and passed it around from loser to loser, year after year. In that sense, the comedic value they provide is well worth the one-time investment.
Fantasy football last place trophies also offer some incentive for the worst owners to actively manage their teams and start optimal lineups each week, which is never a bad thing- especially later in the season.
Which owners to recognize with a loser trophy
In most of the leagues that I run, the loser trophy usually goes to the worst fantasy football team. More specifically, I present the trophy to the last-placed team in the loser playoff bracket. This game is aptly named the Toilet Bowl Championship.
As you'll see in the reviews below, one of the funny trophies is tailored specifically for this pivotal game.
I've also been in leagues where the team with the worst record, or the team with the lowest point output, are recognized in some funny way. I generally prefer the Toilet Bowl trophy approach because it also gives the worst teams a reason to pay attention late in the season.
Funny fantasy football trophy names
You may want to brainstorm some funny trophy names for your loser trophy. You could then have your trophy name engraved on the single plate if you do not opt for a perpetual loser trophy.
Most leagues crown the recipient of the loser trophy the Toilet Bowl Champion. In my leagues, we call this owner the League "Chumpion" (and the Toilet Bowl is re-branded as the "Chumpionship").
However, merely accepting the Chumpionship trophy isn't the end of the suffering for our last-place team each year. The worst team has to endure other forms of humiliation as well.
Way to further embarrassing your last placed teams
For my leagues, one of our rules is that the loser trophy recipient has to display their trophy out in the open for all to see until the next fantasy season begins. This punishment ensures they don't just go home and stick the loser trophy in a closet and forget about it.
Also, the Chumpion does not get to name his fantasy team the following year. The championship team gets to name the loser's team and also pick the team logo for the Chumpion. As you can imagine, this never ends well for the last-placed team.
The Last placed team earns "sticker bitch" duties
Finally, the Chumpion has to serve as the "Sticker Bitch" for the following year's live fantasy football draft. In other words, the league loser is responsible for placing all of the player stickers onto the draft board during the draft proceedings. They also earn the worst fantasy football draft position.
All of these funny antics add to the hardship that is being the last placed team in our leagues. It's a significant motivating factor that our owners want to avoid at all costs.
Reviewing the Funniest Loser Trophies of 2018
In the next few sections, I'll review the best fantasy football loser trophies for your fantasy league. In choosing these funny football trophies, I paid particular attention to cost, the reputation of the trophy merchant, and the satisfaction of the customers who have already purchased these items.
Let's start with a perpetual loser trophy that can record your worst teams for many, many years so the sting of being the worst team never entire leaves.
For many fantasy football leagues, a loser trophy is just an afterthought. They look for a cheap loser trophy for the last-placed team and pass it around each year.
But wouldn't it be much more fun to document every last-placed team over the lifetime of your league? That's precisely what you'll be able to do with this Horse's Rear Perpetual Trophy from Fantasy Jocks.
In addition to recording the names of your league's worst teams over the ages, this last place fantasy trophy allows you to etch your league name on the front for a nice, personalized touch. The trophy itself is 3 lb and a full ten inches tall, making it by far the biggest loser trophy in this review.
With the ability to record 15 years worth of fantasy ineptitude, this trophy could serve your league well for many years to come.

If your league determines the fantasy football loser recipient with a final game pitting together the two worst teams, then this Toilet Bowl championship trophy from Decade Awards will fit the bill.
The picture of this fantasy football loser trophy doesn't give it justice as it is six inches tall! That's big enough to garner some attention as it sits on the mantle of your league's worst team.
You can customize this trophy with a single engraving plate. But because Amazon stocks this toilet bowl trophy, it ships without a plate. However, Decade awards will send you a free engraved plate with each order. Simply send them your info after you've made your purchase.
Each plate can accommodate up to three lines of text. That's enough space to add your league name, your official lost trophy name, and maybe another humiliating one-liner.

If you've been browsing for fantasy prizes, you've likely come across the Beast line of fantasy champ trophies. But you may not have seen the Beast in quite this context before.
Instead of tearing his shirt off in a fit a fantasy prowess, this last place trophy finds the Beast sitting on the old crapper. If you've ever ended up in the league cellar in your fantasy football league, I'm sure you can relate to how the Beast is feeling in this funny loser trophy.
For budget-conscious leagues that don't want a perpetual loser trophy, this last-placed trophy could be a good choice. It's expensive enough that you can buy one for the worst team every year if that's your preference.
Like the other Decade Awards trophies in this review, they'll send you a free, engraved plate with each trophy purchase.

This Horse's Rear trophy from Decade Awards is the last of my funny fantasy football trophies for 2018. And yes, the rear end of the horse really bobbles if you shake it around.
This fantasy football losers trophy is customizable with three lines of text. Unlike the other Decade Awards trophies in this review, you can specify the engraving instructions for this trophy at the time of purchase, so no having to go back and email Decade Awards to have a separate plate shipped.
The butt-bobble feature of this trophy makes it an adorable and unique lose prize. If you want to see the bobble-butt in action, read through the customer feedback to see a video.
The only complaint I've seen about this trophy is that it was once chipped during shipping. Honestly, that's probably fitting for what this trophy is meant to represent.
Your league will no doubt get a kick out of this funny loser trophy, pun intended.
