greasemonkey and fantasy football

Filed under: Web — kees @ 2:01 pm

Fantasy Football isn’t something I have any idea how to play, but I thought I’d join a few friends in their league, since they seemed to have so much fun with it. It’s through Yahoo, and is pretty nifty. I’m slowly learning how to play, but I doubt I’ll ever be any good considering how much I don’t watch football. In the Yahoo interface, however, to evaluate a player’s depth (first string, second string, etc.) I have to click on the player, then the team, then the “Depth chart” link. This was annoying, so it was a perfect opportunity to learn some more javascript, xpath, and DOM manipulation. As a result, I wrote a greasemonkey script to add team links where ever a team abbreviation is seen.

  1. Would you be able to change this script for me so that the links redirect you to the cbssports team depth chart page instead of yahoo? That would be awesome. Thanks in advance!
