Game of Thrones Fantasy Football Names for 2021

Updated on May 4th, 2021 by Brad Perniciaro
Game of Thrones Team Names

When you get right down to it, football and Game of Thrones are basically the same thing. At their core is a violent struggle for territory between warriors clad in body armor.

Opposing factions attempt to gain victory over one another in a bid for ultimate supremacy. And both involve massive head injuries.

The intersection of fantasy football and straight-up fantasy is natural, and I attempt to capture this in our compilation of Game of Thrones fantasy football team names. Use these GOT names in your 2021 leagues, for some Arya-style yuks, or inspiration for your own Game of Thrones puns.

Funny Game of Thrones Team Names

Think George R. R. Martin plays fantasy football? I bet he does. He’s probably one of those managers that cuts players left and right, making you wonder if he even has a plan.

Some people would rather not look at the same dumb Game of Thrones puns all season long. Sometimes you just want a strong, fearsome name that you proudly carve on your league’s version of the Iron Throne.

These Game of Thrones Team names are sure to instill fear in the heart of your fantasy football opponent.

Winterfell Dire Wolves

‘Fon Snow

You might say that Stefon Diggs is the Jon Snow of the Vikings offense. Or you might not, because that’s a very confusing metaphor.

‘Veon Snow

You might say that Le’Veon Bell is the Jets offense. Or you might not, because that metaphor was just used with the last name.

You Know Nothing Johnson

White Welkers

I know he’s retired, but this was too spot-on to pass up. This will be best of all White Walker names for some time.

Dinkledgerin James

The House of Manningster

The last in the line of Mannings is finally gone. That is, until Arch Manning is ready to reclaim the throne.

Before HBO came along, there was just the Song of Fire and Ice book series.

Saquon of Ice and Fire

Deshaun of Ice and Fire

For those old-school Niners fans out there. Not for fans of the former Baltimore running back – he doesn’t get any more fantasy teams named after him. 

A Song of Ice and Kyler

A Song of Ice and Fuller

LeSean of Ice and Fire

Is anyone out there still rostering LeSean? Has he transitioned into mascot status yet?

Al Drogo

Works for Alvin Kamara or Keenan Allen.

Game of Thrones Fantasy League Names

Why stop at medieval names for your fantasy teams? Go all the way and name entire your fantasy league (or create your division names) using Game of Thrones themes.

That is, unless you want to name your team based on Harry Potter.

The Masters of Coin
