While the key maybe to a draft a great team, a funny fantasy football team name is ultimate sleeper to a championship.
A collection of some great fantasy football names and tips for the upcoming NFL fantasy season.

All these factor into a player’s performance leading into the next season.
After seven rounds and 256 selections in the 2014 NFL Draft, it seems like all of the viable fantasy rookies would have been picked.

This is a very moving and inspiring video featuring LB Patrick Willis of the 49er’s. It blew me away to learn it was a Duracell commercial at the end. I’m guessing the guys still pitching the energizer bunny are about to get a wake up call of reality, and a lesson in effective marketing.

Do you remember any of last years Super Bowl commercials? Probably not. But if you think hard enough one memorial commercial on Super Sunday may pop into your head. It was the one of a little kid dressed up like Darth Vader. He tried to move things around the house with the force, only to have his dad play a trick on him with an auto-start to the car from inside the house.

The Super Bowl is big for so many reasons. The players and fans of both teams have their hearts set on being Super Bowl Champions, but there are so many other elements to Super Bowl Sunday.

There are also the big movie trailers that try to hype up this years hottest must-see blockbusters. The art form of a “Must-See” movie trailer can’t be denied these days, yet spending millions of dollars to miss your mark is huge, even crippling. Lets also not forget about the bars, pubs and restaurants that fan’s will be attending all over the world, each hosted location will have a chance to pull in their biggest single day earnings of the year. Yet the real hidden gem of this yearly mega-event doesn’t come with a side of fries. I’ll admit it, I drop more cash on food, beverages and “friendly wagers” on Super Bowl Sunday than any other NFL day of the year. But for big name online sportsbooks or Las Vegas Casinos, money trades hands like you could only imagine. I tried my best to research what was invested at last year’s game, I tried to find something on who lost or even profited the most from last years Super Bowl, but whatever number I found would surely be only the tip of the iceberg. With bets as crazy as calling “Head’s” or “Tails” for the games kickoff, you know if you looked hard enough, the insane prop bets would surely be worth a laugh. ***The Following Super Bowl Prop Bets are real ridiculous wagers you can make for the Super Bowl XLVI with an online sportsbook.

Last season Chris Johnson became a fantasy owner’s best friend with his quest for a 2000 yard rushing season.
