Fantasy football stats: 2016-2017 edition

2016-08-13 1 min read

    This is an annual tradition now but I just updated my old script that crawls and extracts the projected fantasy football data from Yahoo to work with the 2016-2017 season. The changes were incredibly minor: Yahoo broke the the login page into two steps and there was a minor change in the order of the columns. Both of these were trivial to implement and the code is up on GitHub. If all you care about is the raw data you can just download the CSV.

    Every year I intend to use the data to come up with a drafting algorithm yet I’ve failed to do anything with it over the past couple of years. I’m hoping this year is different.
