Over the years, some of the players in my league have chosen movie character names and other inside snarky jokes that not everyone will get. You know your league best. Sometimes it is work related, and you can’t be too dirty or offensive. This would go for logos, trophies and prizes too.

To generate a fantasy football name, you need your starting point.

You may want to base it on your favorite team. For example, there’s a guy in our league who, every year, is “Dallas Sucks.” Maybe not clever, but to the point. Others that are safe, but express who you are, and it’s easy to find a corresponding logo or gif to use on your profile include:

  • Raider Nation
  • Chiefs Kingdom
  • Cheesehead
  • Go Birds
  • Raider Hater
  • Raiders of the Lost Yards

Or, maybe you want to pay homage to a favorite player or coach, past or present.

You can do this directly and simply.

  • Brady is the GOAT
  • Good Juju
  • Brees-y Like a Sunday Morning
  • the Brady Bunch, Brady Gaga, Dude looks like a Brady

Many FF players do this by using the player’s name in a phrase or rhyme that is a play on words.

You may want to wait until after your fantasy league draft, and see who your star players are first, and pick one of them.

How do you add a gif to your Fantasy Football profile?

I get asked this a lot, because the gif I use really suits me. This will depend on the website you use to host your fantasy football league. But, I just saved it to my desktop (right click on it online to save) and then I uploaded it from there. Easy peasy, super brees-y.

This is updated annually.
