I don't doubt he'll return (he gains nothing if he holds out the whole season, because he won't get any closer to free agency), but he could, in theory, wait until after week 10 to do so. Which could be a killer in this league. I could keep him and draft Tony Pollard way higher than I would normally, but missing out on your first round draft pick for even a few weeks can be catastrophic. As they say, you can't win your draft in the first round, but you can lose it.

So do I do it? Keep Zeke?
I'm curious about this as well. We draft Wed 8/28 night and I have the 4th pick (1st actual pick as Barkley/Kamara/McCaffrey were all kept and count as draft picks). I have to decide between Zeke and DeAndre Hopkins (12 Team PPR) in 24 hours.
