The 2014 fantasy football season is around the corner. Not only do you have to put in the prep work for your fantasy football draft, but you gotta come up with a cool team name. The 2014 Lester’s Legends Best Fantasy Football Team Name Contest gives you a chance to show off how clever you are. Not only will you have the bragging rights, but you have a chance to take home a prize. The winner will take home a $50 gift certificate.
All you need to win is a creative name and contact information to get your prize. You can reference football players, songs, movies, whatever. Just be original and keep it somewhat clean. Avoid the low hanging fruit (Aaron Hernandez, Josh Gordon, etc.) if you’re looking to win the prize.
Limit three team names per entrant. The contest will be open until August 17th. We will then narrow it down to ten team names and determine the winner. Scroll down past the entries below to submit your names.
