Fantasy Football Drafting API

I had a lot of fun writing my poker bot, even though the competition only lasted for a single season. Inspired by my coworker’s excellent 2013 NFL Draft site, I decided to make a fantasy football drafting API. While the ultimate goal of having a fully automated fantasy football platform is still a ways off, the API for picking players in a real-time draft came together in time for the 2013-14 season.

Each fantasy team will write a program to interact with the draft API, and choose your team. I’ll take the results and punch them into a “real” fantasy provider, probably ESPN or Yahoo. Sound interesting? Sign up here!

All the code is up on GitHub, pull requests welcome. The API is relatively friendly Django.
