What is fpl?
It's a Python wrapper for the Fantasy Premier League, which is a fantasy football game - "a game in which participants assemble an imaginary team of real life footballers and score points based on those players' actual statistical performance or their perceived contribution on the field of play. " At the time of writing this post there are more than 6 million teams entered, which includes loads of people on Steem who are participating in Steem's very own league (see here).
The 2019/2020 season of the Premier League started a while ago. With this they decided to change a lot of the endpoints of their API, and also what the endpoints actually return for some reason. Because of this I had to change quite a lot to get everything back in working fashion, but I think everything should be working properly with version 0.6.8 (as long as they don't keep changing things)!
On a side note: the package has hit 50 stars, which makes me very proud, and the Discord server has reached ~80 users! Don't hesitate to give the project a star yourself and join the discussion on Discord!
