Plaxidently Shot Myself.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is the 2011 fantasy football team name of the year. With 28 percent of the votes (it does not sound like a lot, I know), Plaxidently Shot Myself edged out Rock Out With Your Lockout (17 percent) for the title.

I like how the top two fantasy team names played on recent NFL events. Kudos to both, as they were quite clever.

Winner takes home a nice cache of prizes:

Thanks again for all the submissions and for voting. Looking forward to this contest again next summer!

Here are today’s great reads:

  • Chris Johnson and the Titans met yesterday in Nashville. Fantasy owners were hoping for some positive news. They did not really get any. According to several sources, little-to-no progress was made yesterday. Holdout is still on! [ProFootballTalk]
  • The Felix Jones hype train is out of control. A few weeks ago, you could get him for a good value. Now? Not so much. Expect to pay fair market value, or higher, for Jones’ services. [Fantasy Douche]
  • There is a lot to like in St. Louis these days with the emergence of Sam Bradford as a stable, productive quarterback. Trying to figure out which Rams’ receiver to draft is really, really tricky though. One name that keeps surfacing as a potential front-runner is Danny Amendola, who could end up being a PPR monster.

  • Panic in Indianapolis! The Colts signed Kerry Collins yesterday in case Peyton Manning is not ready for week one. Yes, that’s right — the same Kerry Collins who retired a month ago. Interesting that it was Collins, not Brett Favre, that came out of retirement for this job. [The Big Lead]
  • The running back stock market is fluid, especially during the preseason when situations are being hashed out. Check out some of the risers and fallers at the RB position after two weeks of preseason football. [RotoProfessor]
