WASHINGTON — It’s nearly time to kick off the NFL season, which means fantasy football is already in full swing. Whether you’ve already had your draft or are still scrambling through rankings, there’s always time to come up with a great team name before the season starts. In that spirit, just as we did last year, here’s a handful of fantasy team name suggestions for 2016. We’ve updated the references for this season, and as always, we aim to avoid the generic, lazy jokes you’ll find elsewhere in your search. Hopefully one of these resonates, or at least inspires you to come up with your own name. Oh, and a word of caution: the sense of humor gets darker the deeper you go down the list, so click through at your own peril.

Weekends at Brady’s With America’s worst soap opera finally at an apparent end, Tom Brady is poised to serve a four-game suspension at the beginning of the season. What will he do with his time? Hang out with Giselle and the kids? Tweet angrily from his couch? Watch RedZone? All we know is that the first four weekends of Brady’s season won’t take place under center.

Norman’s Sky This is for the Skins fan and gamer in the group. A play off the new sci-fi exploration game No Man’s Sky, it pays homage to Josh Norman’s incredible self valuation. He’s the best cornerback on the planet, he’ll tell you, which might as well make him the best player in the galaxy, even a procedurally generated one. (AP Photo/Nick Wass) (AP/Nick Wass)

Aguayo Right The Tampa Bay Buccaneers reached hard enough to strain a lat muscle by taking Roberto Aguayo, a kicker, in the second round of this year’s draft. All he has done so far? Miss an extra point and a pair of field goals in preseason, where he appears to have developed the yips, just a little later than his Seminole predecessors, who usually save their biggest misses for the most crucial time of the college season. This one will dig at any Florida State fans in your league, which automatically makes it a prudent choice. (AP Photo/Phelan M. Ebenhack) (AP/Phelan M. Ebenhack)

Romo 911 Believe it or not, this name had already been chosen for this list before Romo broke a bone in his back on the third play from scrimmage in a preseason game, knocking him out a reported 6-10 weeks. When you’ve had as many major injuries as Romo has, you’re always one awkward hit away from losing another season on the shelf, and at this point you’ve got to wonder how many comebacks he has left.

The Cincinnati Zoo reopened its gorilla exhibit Tuesday with a higher, reinforced barrier installed after a young boy got into the exhibit and was dragged by the 400-pound Harambe, which was then shot and killed.

Cincinnati Harambes This is the joke that will not die, unlike the poor gorilla at the Cincinnati Zoo. There was actually an online petition signed (jokingly?) by hundreds of thousands to change the Bengals’ team name to the Harambes. It obviously didn’t stick, but that doesn’t mean you can’t honor America’s favorite primate this season. (AP Photo/John Minchillo) (AP/John Minchillo)
FILE - In this March 11, 2013, file photo, Chairman and CEO of General Electric, Jeff Immelt, left, and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell listen during a news conference in New York, about GE partnering with the NFL, the US Military, and others to further research on head injuries. Commissioner Goodell enters his second decade in charge on Thursday, Sept. 1, 2016. A few years into Goodell's tenure as NFL commissioner, a grad school professor polled students on who was the most effective leader in the major sports. Goodell romped. 
That was before the league locked out the players in 2011. Before the Saints' bounties scandal. Before the behavior of Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson _ and so many others _ led to a stricter player conduct policy.  Before game officials were locked out. Before Tom Brady's suspension in "Deflategate." And before issues over head trauma and concussions brought player safety questions to the forefront.  (AP Photo/Seth Wenig, File)
Oh say can you CTE Somewhat quietly, the NFL finally fired the doctor running their concussion protocol program after his credentials and credibility had been shattered over the past few years. If you’re more the socially conscious type and would like to remind your friends of the league’s very real, very serious problem, here’s your chance. If this is your favorite choice on the list, you may not be super fun at parties. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig, File) (AP/Seth Wenig)
