Pilot fatigue can mean a lot of things. Without knowing specifically what type of training was being performed, I wouldn't read too much into that. Since they are training maintainers there as well, what about "maintainer fatigue" or error.
As far as the anti-fatigue systems in cars are concerned, I don't have any faith in them. They are just a gimmick. It used to be that car advertisements were based on the mechanical capabilities of the vehicle, now they are about Bluetooth, navigation systems and other gimmicks.
The report said the pilot was fatigued and said he had been having increasingly poor sleep. The pilot also said he felt fatigued more often in the F-35 than in his previous aircraft, the F-15E. The report notes that the F-35′s oxygen delivery system is different than legacy oxygen systems like the one in the F-15E, and has caused many F-35 pilots to feel slightly more fatigued than usual.

It appears to be the OBOGS. They have multiple reports of pilots getting more fatigued than in other aircraft.
