Daily Fantasy Sports with R

Building an NBA Projection System

About the Book

Data analysis is the process of converting data into useful information. This book introduces data analysis applied to NBA daily fantasy sports (DFS) using the R programming language. You will learn how to wrangle and visualize data, build and test prediction models, and collect and import data from web-based sources. This book assumes you have some experience working with data using a tool like Excel, but have no experience programming. I wrote it for people who enjoy playing DFS and want to learn data analysis but may be intimidated by the applications typically taught in textbooks.

This book is still in-progress and more chapters will be added in the upcoming months.
