***This is pulled straight from his Draftsharks profile.****

Better known as “PeakedInHighSkool,” Alex fell into creating fantasy football content by accident. He grew up as the “nerdy kid” and started playing fantasy in 2017 to keep in touch with his college buddies. He was instantly hooked and started producing the long-running series “Reddit Adjusted Trade Value Charts” a few weeks into his very first season.

Math and numbers always came easy for him. Alex is an engineer by trade (shocking) and focuses a lot on the game theory and the “value” of players. Alex only talks about fantasy football, CrossFit, and board games, which makes him exhausting at parties. He joined Draft Sharks in 2023 as the product manager.
