It's that time of the year again. (CBSSports.com)

It's almost August, and that means you're likely going to conduct a fantasy football draft this month. It also means you're going to have come up with, or update, your fantasy football team name. Los Pollos Hermanos is a tad 2013.

I've fired up the CBSSports.com Apple IIGS computer responsible for powering all your fantasy leagues to examine what are the most popular and trending team names so far this summer.

The most popular team names so far are, frankly, uninspiring.

  1. Show Me Your TDs
  2. Da Bears
  3. Mean Machine
  4. Bulldogs
  5. Cowboys
  6. Steel Curtain
  7. Turn Down For Watt
  8. Big Blue
  9. Raiders
  10. Broncos
I'll throw some respect at No. 7. 

Some takeaways from perusing a spreadsheet full of many, many team names.

You all still lean on The League for inspiration:

  • Password is Taco
  • Vinegar Strokes
  • Mr. McGibbletts

A few notetable TV references:

  • AMC's The Walking Dez
  • Valyrian Steelers
  • Welker Texas Ranger

  • Revis and Butthead
  • Hingle McCringleberry

Some movie references:

  • Natural Born Spiller
  • Dez-ed and Confused
  • Forgetting Brandon Marshall
  • Dirty Mike and the Boys
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Bortles
