Fantasy Football: What to do with your league’s loser

We can debate first-round picks until our faces turn blue, but a more fun discussion between leagues is what to do with who finishes in last place.

It’s late August, which means fantasy football drafting season is upon us.
We can debate first-round picks until our faces turn blue (Saquon > everybody) but a more fun discussion between leagues is what to do with who finishes in last place.
I have been at the bottom of the barrel before in my league (big ups to the UConn Ellsworth Championship) and had to suffer a fate that, in time, I learned to enjoy. 
Our league has been passing around hot pink license plate covers to the team manager in last place at the end of the regular season. The covers say, “I FINISHED LAST IN MY FANTASY FOOTBALL LEAGUE.”

At first, I found this to be too much information for somebody sitting behind me at a traffic light. But I learned to enjoy people’s reactions to my inability to draft/trade/seek out talent on the waiver wire. They would read it, smile, and then I would wave --- for one full year.
So, here are some other options for your league’s loser.
- The Champ renames the last place finisher's team for the next season. A classic.
- Take out ad space 
- Maybe a public performance? 
- Last place can’t shave for a year/has to get a mohawk/tattoo/bellybutton piercing

- Eating something gross

- Make the last-place finisher retake the ACT/SAT 
Do you have an interesting/funny/strange/illegal fantasy football punishment to share? Happy drafting everyone.
