I think his value is actually higher. I considered him at 2.05.
He's an enormous risk-reward pick. If you can scrape together enough wins in the first 7 weeks without your 2nd-3rd round pick, then you're golden. If you can just make the playoffs, you're the favorite.
But if you go 2-5 or 1-6 while Zeke is out, it doesn't matter that he might help you finish a more respectable 6-7.
In a relegation league, he's not really worth it. But Jim doesn't have to worry about relegation.
Of course I play Jim in Zeke's first game back... This game is rigged!
