Fantasy Football Team Names for Detroit Lions Fans

Hey, Detroit Lions fans, have you started up your fantasy football league? Need a team name that shows off your Lions pride and shows a little wit? Try one of these:

O’Broyles Rules!
How many times has the average fantasy football player seen Billy Madison? 50? 100? 1,000? I’m not sure but slide ‘Broyles’ in for ‘Doyle’ and you may just have the best team name in your league. Just watch out for cliffs.

Fauria Analysis
Every fantasy footballer likes to think they know more than the others in their league. What better way to show off your supreme intellect than to combine the name of a Lions player (Joseph Fauria) and a level of mathematics your league-mates likely never reached (Fourier analysis)?

The Ansah
Yes, it’s a terrible pun. Allen Iverson was ‘The Answer’, the Lions hope they have the answer in the former of rookie defensive end Ziggy Ansah.

Gettin’ Ziggy Wit It
Ziggy Ansah is the source subject once again, this time with Will Smith’s 1998 single Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It as the inspiration.

Fifty Shades of Slay
This one is probably reserved for the female fantasy footballers out there.

Thy Rod and Thy Stafford
Not a bad choice if you want to get Biblical with a shoutout to your favorite quarterback.

inFLUELLENza
Yeah, I know, this one is so bad it makes me sick. My apologies to Andre Fluellen.

Stafford Infection
Again with the medical…You’ve likely seen a team or two before with this name. Minus points for lack of originality.

Jim Schwartz’s Gym Shorts
Did you ever realize ‘Jim Schwartz’ sounds an awful lot like ‘Gym Shorts?’ If not, hopefully I didn’t just ruin his name for you forevermore.

Schilen Like a Villain
How about a little love for one of the newest Lions, wide receiver Chaz Schilens?
