Good idea to catch a nap. I catch mine on a train, or else at my favorite hotel in downtown Zürich which almost always has an early room for me.
Getting luggage from lost and found might not be much of a problem, and I'm sure that L&F has developed a routine for such luggage.
The L&F for Terrminal 2, which is where most US flights arrive, is in the arrivals luggage hall, directly across from the carousels.
They probably pull the luggage off the carousel after a set period of time, and take it the few meters to the L&F.
That is a conventional arrangement at many airports, but sometimes they call it "Luggage Service" office.
I'd not expect a problem, if you keep your luggage tag/receipt to show them.
