A package to scrape linestarapp.com daily fantasy sports ownership data

Project description

Linestar Scrape

Goals

The goal of this project is to provide a person with a standardized format for getting linestar ownership data so that it can be used for better understanding daily fantasy competitions

Example: https://www.linestarapp.com/Ownership/Sport/NBA/Site/FanDuel/PID/420

In order to scrape this page, lots of tedious work would have to be done in order to pull data from this site that could only be used for a specific use case. Why not make a package that can be used by everyone? This page contains valueable information to fantasy players and can be used for many DFS data science applications.
