Greg is joined by Jeff Dumont (@jeffd119) for the Gridiron Throne, a series in which your hosts will analyze fantasy football and the final season of Game of Thrones. The football discussion revolves around best ball draft strategy, with thoughts from your hosts on roster construction, risk tolerance, player archetypes, fading last season’s results, teams to target or avoid, and (of course) quarterbacks to target and avoid. To transition into Game of Thrones, characters from the show are likened to NFL coaches (36:42). Next, Greg and Jeff blow out their next-character-to-die draft in preparation for the Battle of Winterfell in Episode 3 (40:45), then they close out the show with a few more predictions and lingering questions for the story’s end game.

Greg Smith

Greg Smith is an engineer, co-founder of, and enthusiast for the strategy and design of variance-based games.  When he started playing fantasy football in 2001, his home league's small number of teams necessitated starting two quarterbacks.  That necessity has since grown into obsession, making Greg one of the preeminent champions of 2QB and Superflex formats.
