The simple way is just dragging text labels (player names)
and dropping them somewhere on a view, so they're not overlapped.
This is a manual process, though.
I couldn't recommend any automation here.
Thinking about what could one do
with those names on a map
is a better option imho.
You can use this oldie but goodie thread to 'Jitter' the names around in a circle:
Alan's technique is the one I always use. You'll find other ones out there.
EDIT: The better solution would be to find the list of their hometowns, not just their home states. Then they spread out all by themselves.
