Dfla is by no means small fry for the alliance. Given the ass whopping he gave Law Luffy will have a bitch of a time beating him. Hell, he might need help to get the job done since Dfla's ability is the perfect counter to Luffy's ability.
Can't really tell, Law also got crushed by Vergo, before he went fool. Additionally he sliced a whole island basically in half, he could be playing possum.
