Top 100 Players of 2023, Nos. 30 - 21: Plenty of All-Stars and more

The Top 100 Players of 2023 will be reveiled more and more every two days in the month of November. We will be releasing the Top 100 graded players of the season 2023 according to SportsMetrics. The grades reflect the individuals performance on the field.

Despite being the only real pass-rushing-thread on the team, Jebrai Regan managed to have a tremendous impact on defense. Besides being tied for the most forced fumbles in the league (4), the longtime Enthroner recorded 52 tackles, 9.5 sacks, 17 tackles for loss, seven pass break-ups, and a blocked kick.

Louis Geyer has turned himself into one of the best homegrown wide receivers in Europe. The former Rookie of the Year led the Surge with 863 receiving yards and seven receiving touchdowns, despite only ranking third on the team with 47 receptions.

Since joining the Raiders at the 2022 signing deadline, Jamalcolm Liggins has proven to be arguably the best cornerback in the European League of Football. This season, the former Philadelphia Eagle recorded 42 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, five interceptions including one pick-six, 17 pass break-ups, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery. It should come as no surprise that Liggins was selected as a First-Team All-Star in 2023. 

AJ Wentland showed once again that he is a true tackling machine in 2023. Despite only playing nine games, Wentland ranked third in the league with 112 total tackles, earning him another First-Team All-Star selection.

Leander Wiegand pieced together a phenomenal season for the Rhein Fire in 2023. The former UFC Knight was one of, if not the best, guard in the European League of Football last season and deservedly made the All-Star team.

Dauson Dales proved to be an instant difference maker for the Paris Musketeers. The Division II All-American racked up 93 total tackles along with nine tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, four pass break-ups, an interception, and one forced fumble, making him a First-Team All-Star.

2022 First-Team All-Star Robin Wilzeck played another great season for the Berlin Thunder. With 60 receptions for seven touchdowns and a team-high 947 yards, Wilzeck had another outstanding campaign, which earned made him a nominee for the Homegrown of the Year Award.

Glen Toonga put together astonishing performances behind a dominant Rhein Fire offensive line in 2023. Despite only playing in eight regular season games, the British running back rushed for 926 yards and nine touchdowns. It should come to no surprise that Toonga was selected to the All-Star team for a second straight season.

Despite a lot of criticism for his performances, Chris Helbig put together a better season than many people expect. Helbig completed 63.18% of his passes for 2372 yards and 18 touchdowns with six interceptions during the regular season. But what made him a valuable piece for the Vikings’ offense was his performance in the red zone. Helbig was tied for the third most rushing touchdowns in the ELF (9) due to many successful short yardage run plays.

Devan Burrell has been a good defensive back for the Leipzig Kings and Milano Seamen in 2023, recording 63 tackles, a tackle for loss, seven PBUs and three interceptions, but it was the return game, where he really excelled. Burrell returned kicks and punts for a combined 1.820 yards and an insane seven touchdowns, setting new ELF records all over the place and winning the Special Teams Player of the Year Award by a landslide.
