Jelavic hauled in an assist off one key pass and added a cross in 28 minutes of play off the bench in the porous 4-1 loss to Tottenham on Sunday.

It was a fine pass from him to take Manuel Lanzini on a scoring position but other than that nothing spectacular in a poor Hammersí game. The Croatian hasnít had a single start or a goal this season. Heís not a fantasy factor off the bench.

Jelavic signed with West Ham on Tuesday after transferring from Hull City.

Jelavic was a decent goal scorer for the Tigers last season, but it wasn't enough to keep them from being relegated. He had eight goals in 26 appearances (21 starts) last season and will likely start up front alongside Diafra Sakho until Enner Valencia and Andy Carroll return from their injuries.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jelavic had a lackluster season, scoring just eight goals and adding one assist in 29 appearances as Hull were ultimately relegated.

The Croatian missed significant time after suffering a series of knee injuries and wasn't ever able to string together a good run of form. Jelavic has stated that he would like a year-long loan deal after the Tigers' relegation, but the club's owners are actively looking to sell the 29-year-old.

Jelavic returned to Hull City's Starting XI during Saturday's 2-0 loss to Tottenham. He led the team with four shot attempts before being subbed off in the 62nd minute.

When in the lineup, Jelavic continues to lead the Hull City in shot attempts. He will likely be included in the Starting XI for Hull City's final match of the season against Manchester United.

Jelavic could be ready to play Monday when Hull City host Arsenal, reports the Hull Daily Mail. Jelavic participated in full training during the week and could give the squad a boost as they are playing to avoid relegation.

Even if he is declared fit to be in the lineup Monday, he will likely start on the bench. Jelavic remains Hull City's leading goal scorer despite missing the past five league matches while recovering from knee surgery.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jelavic and the Hull City training staff decided surgery was the best option to repair a persistent knee injury. The striker is expected to be out at least six weeks as he recovers from the procedure.

Jelavic leads all Hull City players in goals and shots this season. The injury could make way for Abel Hernandez to return to the starting XI while Jelavic recovers from surgery.

Jelavic led Hull City with four shot attempts Saturday but managed to only put one on target and was unable to score during the 0-0 draw at Leicester City.

Jelavic has seen his shot attempts take a dip since Dame N'Doye entered the Hull City lineup. He still remains a threat to score with his high number of chances each week but will face some tough match ups in the remainder of Hull City's season.
