Punishments for last place in a fantasy football league have become common practice. Some are harmless and only slightly embarrassing; others are time consuming, painful, and in extreme cases, permanent (we’re talking about you, the tattoo leagues). What is the best punishment for your league? It really depends on how seriously you take it all and how much you want to humiliate your friends. Whether you’re looking for a light and fun fate or the “worst” imaginable, we’re here to help.
So, we go further, we present the best (or worst) fantasy football punishments for 2021.

Best (or worst) penalties in Fantasy Football for finishing last
Tattoo / Piercing
This is probably the most common viral punishment, as well as the most controversial. After all, as much as we would like to believe that we are in control of the fates of our fantasy teams with clever and skillful decisions, fantasy football is often a game of luck and bad luck. Is a painful piercing or an embarrassing tattoo really deserved if you fall in last place in a given season? If your answer is “yes” then get inked. If you are a normal human and the answer is “no” then read on.

Pass the SAT / ACT
Imagine a 40-year-old entering a high school classroom to take a standardized four-hour test alongside nervous teens, all because they forgot to set their schedule once or twice. This punishment is lighter and doesn’t hurt anyone, but damn it it’s a waste of time and embarrassing (especially if there is a stipulation that you must actually “try” and not just sit there. for the afternoon). Talk about feeling stupid on many levels.
Open Mic Comedy / Motivational speaker
So, do you think you are funny or inspiring? Prove it in front of a crowd of complete strangers waiting real stand-up comedy show or motivational speech. And you can’t just walk off the stage when the heckling starts – you have to end your “set” and never say why you’re really there. You can cry afterwards, however.

Waffle House Marathon
If you don’t know what Waffle House is, then you are missing out. This punishment requires spending 24 straight hours in a Waffle House restaurant, but each waffle you eat saves you an hour. Could I probably knock down 10 waffles in 24 hours? Sure. That leaves you with another 14 more hours to spend in an uncomfortable cabin while still feeling like an idiot.
Various forms of public announcement of your failure
This one is quite simple but rather embarrassing. The finalist must stand near a busy intersection during rush hour, holding some sort of “I came last in fantasy football. Honk to see me dance” sign. Another option: Stroll outside a busy public space on a Friday night carrying a sandwich board detailing how bad you are at fantasy football. (Bonus points if you are alone wear the sandwich board.) There might be some people who would appreciate the attention, but the average person will wear a red face for the duration of their punishment.

Take part in the NFL combine drills
If you’re already embarrassed about being bad at fantasy football, why not take it a step further and show how bad you are at real football? The average Joe will look absolutely ridiculous doing his best in the 40 yard dash, cone drills, vertical jump, and bench press. Meanwhile, all the eyes (and cameras) of the rest of the league are there to soak up the hilarious occasion. It’s also pretty harmless (aside from damage to your ego and probably hamstring pull), but at least you get some exercise.
Tomato dam / paintballs
The name is self-explanatory. The rest of the league bombards the loser with tomatoes. It’s not very creative, but it sure does work. You can go a step further and swap tomatoes for paintballs. These bruises take a while to heal, which extends the time you have to remember how bad your season has been.
Photo shoot for a calendar
This involves your friends picking out outfits for each month, and you doing a photoshoot for a calendar. Cupid costume for February? Rabbit costume for April? Speedo stars and stripes for July? Yeah, this one could be bad.
2021 FANTASY AUCTION VALUES (Standard & PPR):
quarterback | Back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D / ST | Kick | Globally
A lot of people love beer, but what about being full of beer while running a mile? This punishment requires the loser to drink a full beer, run a quarter mile, drink a beer, run another quarter mile, and so on until he has traveled 5,280 feet. At least maybe you can start making the buzz while you’re doing this one.
Another simple but effective punishment. The loser of the league must buy a large poster of the player he selected in the first round and keep it in his room all year round. Harmless, but a constant reminder of failure … and a sure-fire way to annoy your partner.
2021 FANTASY LEVELS AND DRAFT STRATEGY:
quarterback | Back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D / ST
Take the tab
The loser just needs to buy food and drink for the next league rally, be it next year’s draft season end party. This one is pretty straightforward, but if you’re cheap, you might consider it the worst of all.
The last loser has to sit on Santa’s lap at the mall (or complain loudly when security tells them they’re not allowed). If you want them to wear an elf costume, so much the better. Also, make sure someone is filming the inevitable arrest.
2021 FANTASY CONSISTENCY ASSESSMENTS:
quarterback | Back | Wide receiver | Tight end
In this scenario, the loser has to wear the jersey of a rival NFL team until the next fantasy draft (and have pictures of it posted on social media). For those who aren’t die-hard NFL fans, this might sound easy, but it’s a tough pill to swallow. Imagine a Giants fan wearing a Dak Prescott jersey or a Steelers fan wearing a Lamar Jackson jersey. Just feels dirty.
The last place is to run a fully functioning lemonade stand in a busy part of town for a full day (with the profits split among the rest of the league). And the lemonade has to be homemade and tasty – no cheap Crystal Light crap.
FANTASY DRAFT STRATEGY:
Snake Draft | Auction | Best ball | Dynasty / Guardian | IDP
The loser must do a full laundry for each member of the league. It’s embarrassing, time consuming, and potentially disgusting. You just know somebody’s putting dirty underwear in there.
Everyone in the league gets a shiny new car wash thanks to the last place loser (bikini optional).
Roll to nowhere
In this excruciating punishment, the loser has to take a non-stop one-day train or bus to and from the destination chosen by the other teammates. And don’t think you have to be on your phone or tablet all the time. You can only take your phone with you in an emergency, but other than that you get a disposable camera that you have to use like you’re a real tourist.

The loser must sit on a child-sized plastic chair for the duration of the next fantasy project. Not only will they be seated lower than everyone else (as is symbolic), but they will also be uncomfortable and look like an idiot (also symbolic).
The loser must dress like a pirate – and speak like a pirate – while they were “boarding the board” in a cold river or lake.
Mystery bag / roulette wheel
The loser shoots from a sack or spins a wheel full of random penalties submitted by other league members at the start of the season. Keep in mind that you might get your own punishment, so you might want to take it easy just in case.

You have to get a vanity license plate announcing your fantastic failure (“FFLOSER?” “12OF12?” “FF AHOLE?”) And keep it on your car for a full year. You can also use any embarrassing vanity plate, even if it’s unrelated to fantasy football. It gives you more options.
Keychain / wallet / phone case
This one requires the honor system, but basically it involves you being required to use a wallet or phone case of your league’s choice until the start of next season. (Suggestions: A Hello Kitty pink velcro wallet of a fabio phone case. You all remember Fabio, don’t you?) Imagine the looks when you take them out in public. You can also force the loser to have an embarrassing charm on their keychain. It’s the same principle, but it’s easier to forget it’s there … until you notice a stranger trying to sneak a cell phone photo so he can make fun of him more widely. you.
