Now that training camp has begun, fantasy football season is right around the corner. I put out a request and you responded with your Bengals related fantasy football names. These are some of the best.
Vontaze Burfict inspired names are very popular and many of the Burfict related names play with the idea that “Burfict” sounds like “prefect.” Nobody’s Burfict and Pure Burfection are two examples. The Burfict Season and The Burfict Lineup are great choices because they are appripriately cocky for fantasy team names. There are also some movie and TV references that can be made from Burfict Strangers is a play on the 80s sitcom to The Burfict Storm which is a great movie, but a bad omen for your fantasy team. Another Burfct related name is Tezmanian Devils, which has the advantage of providing an obvious logo and mascot. One of the more crative ones was Don’t Vontaze Me, Bro! The popular meme makes an obvious logo choice.
Joe Mixon also offers some great fantasy team name options. From Mixon It Up to Fixin’ for a Mixon. Perhaps the best is Mix-On, Mix-Off in an obvious and awesome referance to Karate Kid. Tyler Eifert has inspired many fantasy names, the most popular of which seems to be Whoops, Eiferted or something simliar. Fart jokes aside many people use Eifert’s name in place of the word “effort.” There are many routes to take with this, but the best is Something for the Eifert because it brings to mind the classic scene from Caddyshack where Bill Murray’s charecter talks about caddying for the Dalai Lama. So it’s got that going for it. Which is nice.
Fans of Geno Atkins and Comedy Central could could Geno 911 while Dre Kirkpatrick and old-school hip hop fans may prefer Don’t Forget About Dre. The Bengals’ first round pick Billy Price is already finding himself in the fantasy team name game with The Price is Right. If Plinko isn’t your thing but you love hard hitting safeties like George Iloka and living the crazy life than Livin’ La Vid-Iloka is the perfect name for your fant’asy team. While children of the 80’s most lively appreciated that Ricky Martin refereance, 90’s babies may prefer Pokemon Gio an obvious nod to Giovani Bernard.
Great team names that don’t single out specific players include Dey Drinking. This is a brillant combination of two Sunday traditions. One of the more original submissions was Cinn City Nastys. Who Dey and the Blowfish is another great option that will have fans of 90’s music and puns will be saying “I only wanna be with you.”
There were many great contenders, but after much debate, here are your top 5.
- Livin’ La Vid-Iloka
- The Burfict Lineup
- Who Dey and the Blowfish
- Something for the Eifert
- Mixon-On Mix-Off
No matter what fantasy football team name you chose, it is important to keep your priorities in line. 1. The Bengals. 2. Whoever is playing the Steelers. 3. Your fantasy team.
