When Aaron Hall settled into defence in the early part of the year Ziebell didn’t quite have the same ceiling, although his numbers were quite solid.
In games when Hall scored 100pts or more, Ziebell averaged 90.3pts.
Ziebell is a consideration for season long fantasy at Round 1, although the preference will likely be to spend up to start with Aaron Hall.
Ziebell is a decent mid round selection in draft leagues, he could be a draft slider.
