Fantasy Coach is a fantasy sports league and tournament manager site that allows you to make Live Roster Substitutions DURING your match ups. That’s right, if one of your players gets hurt, someone on your bench is going off, there is a late game scratch, one of your players goes into overtime, or for whatever reason you choose, you can swap bench players for active players during your matchups in Fantasy Coach.
Fantasy Coach powers several different leagues, contests and tournaments that range from free to play to high stakes. Users play to win real cash prizes, and in most of our contest half of all users win cash prizes.
We’ll be adding additional premium features and game types in the coming months so come back often for updates. Thanks for playing Fantasy Coach!
There is a navigation menu that drops down from underneath your avatar in the upper right corner – that will stick with you throughout the Fantasy Coach site, regardless of which tournament, contest or league you are viewing. It contains a list of the leagues and games you’ve signed up for as well as your profile for updating your avatar or login information (including resetting your password).
Once you are within a contest, league or tournament then an icon for navigation for that specific product will show up in the upper left hand corner and open an menu of options for that specific product.
At any time you can also click the FANTASYCOACH word in the upper left corner to return to the site home page.
This is how Fantasy Coach differs most from the other fantasy league providers. In Fantasy Coach you can make Live Roster Substitutions DURING your match ups. That’s right, if one of your players gets hurt, someone on your bench is going off, there is a late game scratch, one of your players goes into overtime, or for whatever reason you choose, you can swap bench players for active players during your matchups in Fantasy Coach.
After your matchups begin, you can schedule Live Roster Moves via “Swaps” either from the My Team page or from the player page (accessed by clicking player name from Match Up screen) and then click the “Swap” button/icon. This will allow you to select which player to send to the bench and which player to replace him with (must be at same position).
The Match Up screen shows you the status of your pending and completed player swaps. When a swap is scheduled, the player that is pending to become active will have a yellow “A” icon added to show that the player will become active at the start of their next period in the NFL matchup in which he is playing. After a swap is made a player sent to the bench will show a blue “A” icon next to the player to show that he is no longer active in your starting lineup (although the player will remain shown in your active line up as points from active periods for that player count towards your total score).
Swaps are processed at the beginning of the next period for the replacement player and at the end of the current period for the player being sent to the bench. You will receive the full points for each player for full periods in which they were active. Details of scoring for each player can be viewed by clicking the points next to the player on the Match Up screen, and this grid will show you which periods each player was active in.
In the event that you make a swap and there is crossover where both the player who is being replaced and the replacement player are both active in NFL games, you will only receive points from those players for the full periods in which they were active. Scoring for players is calculated on a full quarterly basis.
In the event that NFL games go to overtime, those users who have active players in their lineups for those respective NFL games will receive points for overtime period. It is advised that if you have players on your bench that appear to be going to overtime that you schedule a swap during the 4th period or prior to get that player(s) in your active lineup before overtime begins.
Enjoy having more control over your teams than ever before using Live Roster Substitutions (patent pending) from Fantasy Coach!
You can make as many roster changes as you would like before your match ups begin, and can make as many swaps (Live Roster Substitutions) as you would like during the games, so long as there are swaps available to you based on remaining periods available (those that have not started yet) in the real NFL games that your players are in.
All roster changes made prior to your matchups beginning are completely free. The cost of making Live Roster Substitutions depends upon the specific contest that you are participating in. For the initial three tournaments we are offering the cost per swap is as follows:
Fantasy Coaching Championship ($500 Entry) – each swap is $5
Going Deep Challenge ($50 Entry) – each swap is $1
Free Leagues (No Entry Fee) – each swap is $1
If you have additional questions about this, please refer to our complete terms and conditions for additional details about Contests, pricing and overall terms.
Yes. Fantasy Coach has completely free leagues and you can still win cash prizes. Premium features such as Live Roster Moves are completely voluntary so you can play in free leagues and make no Live Roster Substitutions to play at no cost to you.
That is our next product launch and we expect to have it ready before the start of the 2014 season. We are putting the finishing touches on private leagues and will make them available to you ASAP.
In the meantime, if you want to play with friends just sign up for one of our public leagues in a coordinated effort at the same time and have each friend choose to join the same league that you do (do this quickly so that your friends are sure to obtain the open spots for that league).
To join a Public League simply sign up for a contest and then pick which league you want to join from the list that will be presented to you after signing up for the tournament that contains the league.
Please note the draft day and time for each league and only sign up for leagues that you can make the draft for. We are not responsible if you join a league and then miss your draft. You will still be able to play in that case, but your team will not be as competitive as it would be if you drafted. Mark your calendar for draft day and time after you sign up. Enjoy!
When you view the list of possible leagues to join within each tournament (after you have signed up for the tournament) each will show the draft day and time for that league. Sign up only for leagues where you can make the draft.
Drafts will be live, online in the Fantasy Coach Live Draft module. You can access your league’s draft page by going to: My Games link (in navigation under your avatar) and then click Preview Draft button next to the league you want to view the draft page for).
Draft orders will be randomly assigned by the Fantasy Coach software, irrespective of order of user sign up, once the leagues are full and confirmed.
