Your Guide To Country Music-Inspired Fantasy Football Team Names

Luke Combs Patrick Mahomes

The NFL is officially back tonight.

Kicking off the regular season tonight is the Detroit Lions at the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday Night Football. Led by Patrick Mahomes, the Chiefs are of course the defending Super Bowl champs who will look to pick up where they left off, but the Lions are no joke this season. Vegas has them winning the NFC North this year…

But if you’re like most football fans, you probably had a fantasy football draft in the last week or so. The Whiskey Riff team had our draft last night and while everyone drafted great, I have to be honest and say the creative teams name were lacking…

So without further ado, here is your official guide to the country music fantasy football teams names based on your roster:

(This idea 100% derived from a video I saw for Taylor Swift fantasy names so if you’re a Swiftie, you can go check that out on @mouseketaylor’s TikTok)

General Names

Record Year – If you’re feeling confident, a little Eric Church is probably the right fit.

Touchdown Troubadours – Solid band, solid team.

The Boys of Fall – Cue the Kenny Chesney.

How Do You Like Me Now – A little Toby Keith if you’re feeling like an underdog.

Fast As You – Dwight Yoakam is always a good idea.

Sundy or Mundy Night Football or Something To Talk About – Koe knows.

Try That Tackle In A Small Town or Try That In (Insert city) Town – Enough said.

Highway Boys or Flying or Crying or All my homies hate (Insert team name)Some Zach Bryan for any situation and there’s more to come….
