Using Python to improve my Fantasy Basketball team

Fantasy sport is an online game where participants assemble imaginary teams of real professional athletes. Each team collects points based on the performance of the athletes on the weekly games.

In this talk, we will see how I used Python, mathematics and Machine Learning in order to predict athletes' performance and improve my team's ratings.

The talk will be consisted of environment setup instructions and sample code for all the steps of the process:

  • Collect historical data
  • Find useful statistic categories
  • Predict future player performance
