This week's most popular fantasy football team names

With less than three weeks until the start of the fantasy football season, we're here to check in on the trending names in leagues.

Last week, we told you that the timeless, "Show me your TDs" was the most common name from 2012

Well, it's back.

Over the past week, it's the second-most common name change or new name.

It's behind Carlos Danger, which has become the most popular name this offseason among you, our faithful fantasy players.

While it's nice to see Heisenberg shoot up in popularity, the top 10 rising names are well, a bit bland.

And while I eagerly await to see what all those TBDs evolve to, I imagine some will transition into some sort of Aaron Hernandez-related team name. Variations on the name of the former Patriots tight end, and resident of Bristol County Jail, are showing up repeatedly among the list of new handles. 

A sampling:

  • Hernandezs Hitmen
  • Free Hernandez
  • Hernandezs Pistol
  • Aaron Murdermyfriendz
  • Caught red Hernandez

Rebels, the lot of ya.
