Naming your team is the first step in dominating your fantasy football league and demonstrates not only your talent and knowledge, but also your wit and sarcasm which are important factors when talking smack week in and week out in your league. Because honestly, what is fantasy football without smack talk, ribbing, and not so healthy levels of competition?

Your fantasy football team name is important, but remember that you have free reign to change your name mid season if you need to change up the mojo. Call out one of your under performing players in front of the entire league by throwing his name in your team name in a derogatory way and see if it motivates him to step his game up the next week. Hell, blast your new team name all over twitter and publicly call out your QB for throwing 4 interceptions or your RB for not making it into the endzone for the third week in a row. Your team name has power - use it as a tool and dominate your fantasy football league.

Feel free to use any of these names for your team this year or use the ideas for inspiration. If you have some of your own funny names to add, leave them in a comment below.

The League: Dress with Style, Win With Style

Most important, know your scinorg system within your league. Example, a QB is less valuable in a league that credits him with 3 points per TD and 1 point per 50 yards thrown as opposed to a league that credits him with 6 points per TD and 1 point per 25 yards thrown. Don't assume that the stats from a prior year are going to carry over to the next season. Older running backs that saw a lot of work in the prior year have a tendency to slow down or get injured. Major personnel moves on the offensive line may affect offensive players, particularly RBs and QBs. The loss of two to three key defensive players will affect a defense.Factor in injuries from the prior season. Especially for running backs. Major injuries may cause a decline for at least the first half, if not the entire season for a player. A guy like Ronnie Brown is someone that I'm very cautious about this year.Pass on rookie WRs and QBs. They very rarely do well, and in the case of QBs usually don't even start. Rookie RBs can do well, but look at the teams that drafted them to see if they're going to end up in the dreaded RBBC (running back by committee).Factor in player movement. A good example was Edge James going from Indy to Arizona. His yards per carry, receiving yards, and touchdowns have dropped in 2006 and 2007 as opposed to his last three years 2003-2005 with the Colts. His value is definitely down in a Cardinals uniform.Most people use a formula for drafting like RB RB QB or RB RB WR, etc. I don't. Based on expected points per game, I factor in prior seasons, personnel moves, and whether I think that player can repeat; I'll draft the best player available. I typically draft a RB in the first round, but if the seven RB's on my short list are gone, I'd take Brady if he's still there or Moss. I'm more likely to take two RBs and two WRs in the first four rounds. I've typically waited to draft a QB until round 5. I will skip drafting a QB in round 5 or even beyond if I can't find one that I think is a value pick for that round. Every season, you can typically find a guy like Derek Anderson on the FA list for last year. I drafted Tony Romo in Round 8 last year. Guys like Tom Brady were FA pick ups in 2001, Kurt Warner in 1999, Matt Hasselbeck in 2002. Derek Anderson, Jay Cutler, Kurt Warner, and Jon Kitna were all FA pick ups in my league last year. Its good to have a plan like RB RB WR, or RB WR RB; but don't take a player based solely on position if you know he's not a good value at that spot and have reason to believe you can pick that same player or a comparable one in a later round.Defenses are pretty similar to QBs, in that you can usually wait and draft a good one in the later rounds or pick up a good one off the FA list. Its true that there are usually 2-3 DEF that stand out above the rest, but there were easily more than 12 teams that logged over 75 combined sacks, fumble recoveries, and interceptions. You can also rotate your defense to whoever is playing a weak offense that week. I played with a guy last year that employed the strategy of adding and dropping defenses to start whoever was playing either SF, Buffalo, Atlanta, St Louis, Miami, or the Jets last season. At least one of those teams opponents was available on the FA list every week.I draft a kicker with the last pick in the draft. With your last pick, it makes it easy to drop the guy for someone else without hesitating. I drafted Nick Folk in the last round who ended up finishing fourth among kickers. Other top ten guys like Bironas and Phil Dawson were on the FA list over the course of the season.The other position I place a lower priority on is THE. After Gonzalez, Winslow, and Gates; the rest in the top 12 are fairly close in points per game. I picked Donald Lee of the FA list last year. He finished 9th in yards, and tied for 6th in TDs among tight ends.
