My faith in DLF is restored!

Last year you guys took a player who was a good but not elite RB in college, had very very average Combine and Pro Day numbers, and who was widely ranked and mock drafted as a 2nd round rookie draft pick by DLF for months, and then boosted him to the 1.01 pick based on perceived playing opportunity in Kansas City. While Clyde Edwards Helaire had a respectable rookie season, on talent alone, he is clearly not at the level of Jonathan Taylor or J.K. Dobbins, one of which should have rightfully held the 1.01 top ranking.

Glad to see that there were no such shenanigans in the DLF rankings this year! 🙂

Hey there, whoa there, I don’t know about that! Below is a link to a CEH review made on April 8th, three weeks before the draft. That sentiment was how the majority of DLF felt about CEH.

Also, The Chiefs have eight new offensive linemen this year. All 5 starters were replaced. The line was clearly an issue last year. I think CEH will be in line for an uptick in production.

But you boosted him up to the 1.01 AFTER the draft.

Love the Keyshawn Vaughn review in that article. It was right on the money calling this bust well in advance.

Hey Mike, I actually conversed via private message in the DLF forum with dlf_jeffh last year about this. If you go back and look at literally every DLF ranking or mock draft from January – April, CEH was mentioned as a second round rookie draft pick and mock drafted in the second round of most mocks. In fact, the link you posted even proved my point – CEH was RB5 and well after Taylor, Dobbins, Swift and even Cam Akers. But lo and behold, after the NFL Draft, way too many people jumped on the bandwagon because CEH was going to a coach “who knew how to use him” and everyone ignored previous rankings and previous evaluations on college production, and combine / pro day numbers, and went solely on “perceived opportunity.”
I love DLF and have been a member here for many, many years. At no point in any previous year did DLF rankers and top brass ever boost a player drastically because of perceived opportunity. And thankfully, no one did so this year. But while the jury is still out, and CEH might very well go on to have an elite career, I thought that this drastic boost was very out of character for this site and just wanted to comment on that viewpoint.

Be careful victory lapping a class after one year! One of the most classic blunders. Lol

Is nobody else concerned that the Bengals are the new Cowboys? Quite a few mouths to feed….

This is a really good mock. Although, the disrespect of Devonta continues. Based on pure talent I’d put him right up there with Chase and Pitts. May be a hot take but if I’m fine at RB I have zero issue taking him at 4.

No way would I take a TE that high in standard formats. TE premium leagues maybe.
Not buying the hype. Been there, done that.

I guess if he fell some I might take Pitts looking to move him to a Pitts believer after his first good game.

Agree 100%. From a fantasy perspective, he landed in one of the worse possible places. He needs to put up WR 1 type numbers from the start to justify taking him so early. Between Jones/Ridley/Hurst there are too many mouths to feed. Until ATL trades or moves on from Julio, Pitts will never get the volume to put up ELITE numbers like a Kelce. Plus you basically “redshirt” any rookie TE to begin with. He might get you TE 1 numbers sooner rather than later but not enough to truly separate him.
