Game of Thrones: Fantasy Football Team Names

Game of Thrones Team Names

It’s hard to believe, but Game of Thrones is finally returning with its eighth and final season April 14, 2019. Sadly, the season will only feature six-episodes, however, each must-see final episode will be a mini-movie, with run times rumored to be well over an hour.

Game of Thrones fans will be treated for the first time in far too long to a new episode of arguably the best show on television. When last we saw our friends in the Seven Kingdoms, Cersei Lannister was killing err-body in King’s Landing, Jon Snow became the new King in the North, and Daenerys Targaryen was sailing her fleet of armies, outcasts, and dragons toward Westeros.

As has become the tradition here at Gridiron Experts over the last several years, I’m ushering in a new season of Thrones (as well as the upcoming NFL season) with an updated list of GOT-inspired fantasy football team names. Please add your favorites to the comments section below and feel free to reach out to me on Twitter to discuss this list, the latest twists and turns on the show, and… of course… some fantasy football.

    If one of the most humble and innocent characters in the series suddenly became insufferable, she’d be:

    Vain Shireen

    I usually use The Winterfell Direwolves as my team name. But maybe I’ll switch it up this year. Much like Winterfell, my postseason dreams went up in smoke pretty early.
