Winning a fantasy football league is one of the most satisfying feelings for anyone playing fantasy sports. However, the real reward, is being awarded with your league's championship trophy.

Whether it's a simple trophy or something more, here are five of the best championship prizes you should consider for the winner of your 2019 fantasy football league.

5. Engraved Trophy

An engraved trophy with the names of past winners is the living history of a fantasy football league and is considered a must in many circles. Plus, if you don't take home the title this season, pointing out your name when this year's winner is presented the trophy should keep them in their place, at least for a few seconds.

4. Championship Ring

Okay, so it's not a trophy in the literal sense, but it is something the winner of your league can wear as a status symbol throughout their reign. Then whenever someone asks you where you got that ring, you can subtly reveal that they're in the presence of a fantasy football champion.

3. Championship Cup

The championship cup is a simple trophy, by most standards, but it's also one of the best trophies to win because of what you can do with it. Besides being a symbol of your triumph, the cup, much like Lord Stanley's, allows you the opportunity to drink out of it. Or, if you don't want to drink out of it in celebration, it's perfect for a celebratory bowl of cereal, or even a place to keep breath mints, keys or the like throughout the year.

2. Armchair Quarterback

Whether they'd like to admit it or not, even the most casual of fantasy football players can't deny it: everyone who plays fantasy football is actually an armchair quarterback. So, now that we've come to terms with that, a trophy embodying exactly that couldn't be more fitting for a fantasy football league champion.

Similar to the ring, a championship belt isn't an actual trophy, but it's arguably the most obnoxious piece of hardware you can take home after winning a fantasy football league. Just imagine the satisfying and over-the-top it entrance you could make by marching into your fantasy draft with a championship belt draped over your shoulder.
