I would recommend against a training course. Most of them are overpriced and leave you with the task of trying to remember everything that was thrown at you during class which can be quite frustrating later on. Instead, I recommend a great free resource: the public library. Go there and get a couple of excel books and save yourself the money and frustration. Most introductory excel books are divided into three general sections: beginner, intermediate and advanced techniques. I'm guessing that for your purposes you probably won't have to go beyond much of the intermediate stuff. Really all you will likely need to learn is how to input data, write the appropriate formulae, and link the various data cells together to get the stat that you want. It's not difficult or very complex, but does require repetitive practice to become efficient (which is another reason why I recommend avoiding a one-time training course).
As for converting it to HTML, that's not very difficult either. Excel allows you to simply click "File" then "Save as:" then select "Web Page." Most introductory texts will show you this as well. Again, not difficult. Excel is actually quite fun to learn when you begin to realize its capabilities, especially if you are learning it for the purposes of something you enjoy like fantasy sports. dclark0699 isn't exaggerating when he says it can do magical things. Hard to believe it's a Microsoft product.
