What makes a great fantasy football logo
There are so many things that can make your fantasy football logo standout and are few of them are: the colors used, the team name and the font used in design.
When creating your logo, you want to create something that is memorable, something that would hype up your entire league. Your logo should be fierce and bold — two characteristics that you want in any sports team.

1. Team name
For you fantasy football logo to standout, you need to use a team name that is fierce, emulates boldness and has character.
You don’t want to use team names that are generic. Names like: “Home Team” or “Al’s Fantasy Football Bunch” just don’t make the cut. Rather, you need to be a little more creative and go for names that connects your team to a big and bold concept.
To get some inspiration, you can look at some of your favorite NFL teams, names like: Atlanta Falcons and New York Giants are really good examples of team names that use symbols of strength and bravery to represent their teams.
Remember though that ESPN limits team names to 32 characters.
