With 41 million fantasy sports players in the US and Canada, one of the biggest complaints about traditional fantasy leagues and even new daily fantasy games is the complete powerlessness over game outcomes once kickoffs take place. If an athlete doesn't perform due to injury, late game scratch, the weather or tough competition on the other side of the ball, the experience can be agonizing. Fantasy players usually lose their match ups, bragging rights and often have a downright crummy day.

Not anymore. "Fantasy coach was built by fantasy players for the fantasy players who want greater control over the outcomes of their match ups and wish to compete in more highly skill based games than have been previously available. We took a mobile first approach and are adding greater elements of enjoyment to the segment of fantasy players who are active on a connected device while they watch the games, either in a stadium, their favorite sports bar or from home." says Dan Kehoe, founder and CEO of Fantasy Coach. "Fantasy Coach is adding new daily fantasy sports game types, charity based tournaments, and additional fantasy sports including NCAA Football, MLB, NASCAR, and the NBA.

ESPN Insider Mike Clay called Fantasy Coach "the best new fantasy platform out there" in his recent article covering this new form of game play called "Fantasy Coaching." He added, "For those of us who are serious about fantasy this new game type can potentially change how we play the game. I can see us looking back saying "remember when you couldn't even change your lineup after kickoff, that's crazy!"

Fantasy Coach also introduces the new "Coaches IQ;" weekly and cumulative coaching grades for fantasy players on the platform. Every seasonal league player is eligible for a chance to win the inaugural Fantasy Coach of the Year title. The Coaches IQ-score leaderboard will be tracked and reported during the season to showcase the most skilled Fantasy Coaches on the platform.

Fantasy Coach can be accessed on mobile, tablets and desktops at http://www.fantasycoach.com and is open to individual users or groups. The site offers both seasonal and daily fantasy games for NFL and a mix of paid and free-to-enter contests. Most contests are structured as public leagues with 50/50 payouts, so half of all competitors in each league win cash prizes.

Launched in August 2014 by Atlanta-based Zobee. Fantasy Coach is home to the most skill-based and actively managed fantasy sports games in the industry. For more information, visit http://www.fantasycoach.com and follow on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/fantasycoaching.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020.
