It's summer, and everyone is in vacation mode this time of year as we try to mentally get ready for the rigors of another fantasy football season.

NFL training camps are upon us and soon 4for4.com will be the hotspot to get every little tidbit of information that will make your draft day selections a piece of cake.

The fact is, though, until your draft day, there isn’t a whole lot you can control about your fantasy football team at this point of the offseason. The one thing you can control is probably something that may not have even crossed your mind yet. Thinking about it now may just save you some headache and stress when the time comes to make one of the biggest fantasy football decisions of the season—your team name.

Why You Should Think of a Name Now

Okay, maybe I’m being dramatic. But, if you’re one of those owners who loves to come up with something clever instead of Team Bill or The Crushers, you know exactly what I’m talking about.

Thinking up a gutsy, funny, or clever team name in this very moment can definitely save you some headaches a few weeks from now when you really feel put on the spot. Waiting until the day you sign up for your account and staring blankly at the team name section, wondering what to fill in, can be stressful—and we all have enough stress in our lives. Checking out the clever team names your opponents have already decided on doesn't help, and can really make you panic.

What Makes a Good Fantasy Team Name?

What makes for a great team name that will draw comments, laughter, and even awe from your friends and league mates?

Well, that’s certainly up to each owner, and even the type of owners in your league. For me, I like vile, disgusting and perverted—you know, something my wife would cringe at. While I probably shouldn't share those, hopefully, this article will give you a good head start as far as choosing something that will get you noticed—or at least get your mind churning to come up with your own. Then it’s just a matter of backing it up on the proverbial fantasy football field beginning in September.

When I was approached a few years ago about coming up with some team names for an article, I was told to “keep it PG-13.” For me, that’s a challenge in itself. I don’t want to say I’m a pervert or immature … but I kind of am.

Now, one way to go is to pick a name that’s in the news and topical. Any team name that cleverly uses a player’s name can always be funny—and these happen to be my favorites.

Some names are pretty easy targets. Players who have Wood, Johnson or Peterson in their name will probably be deleted by my editor, so I won’t even bother (but they still make me giggle and are solid options). In fact, I can’t wait to see which names get left in this piece when it finally goes live…

A bunch of the names below came from Internet searches, others were names I’ve seen in various leagues I play in, and others revolve around certain topics that just sparked in my mind.

Politically-Themed Team Names

Last year, I thought some political team names would be a great topic. I guess it's not a popular subject these days, but it’s a great way to annoy your league mates and that’s what it's all about. It’s something they’ll have to see every time they log on and it may frustrate them with anger to the point it affects their fantasy decision making. Bonus for you... Some of these names came from last year, but most are still relevant.
