You did all your homework. You studied the depth charts. You examined medical reports on injured players like you were Gregory House. You told all the other managers how much they suck at fantasy football on the league page, Facebook and Twitter. However did you come up with a witty and hilarious fantasy football team name? Please tell me you didn’t just mail it in with an unimaginative played out team name such as “Balls Deep.” Hopefully you put a little more thought into it or at least put in the effort to simply go on the internet and steal a great team name that someone else made up like “Teenage Mutant Ninja Bortles.” Well it’s too late now because the 2014 NFL season kicked off on Thursday night with the Seattle Seahawks trouncing the Green Bay Packers. Slate reviewed over 360,000 different fantasy teams in public leagues on ESPN.com. Then they compiled a list of the 30 most popular team names including “Turn Down For Watt” and “Stafford Infection,” but “Weeden Brownies” is strangely absent from this list.
There’s also a list of the most common players or coaches on each team.
So put a little effort into your team next year and don’t just settle for some lame shit like “The Brady Bunch.”
