Jelavic has stepped up his rehab and is hopeful to to return to training next week.

The international break could provide the time to allow for Jelavic to make an appearance in Hull City's next match against Tottenham. Should he return, his value may be limited as he should not be expected to receive full playing time right away. The club will likely welcome his return as they have failed to score in the past three matches and have managed just two goals since Jelavic got injured.

Jelavic is a team leader in both shot attempts and goals scored. If he is fit to return soon, he will have a difficult go at it as four of the next five Hull City league matches are against teams in the top-half of the table.

Jelavic showed his skill by scoring on an aerial scissor-kick to start the scoring during Saturday's 2-2 draw against Newcastle United.

Jelavic played the full 90 minutes Monday against West Ham United and attempted three shots. He was off target with all three attempts and was unable to contribute to the scoring during the 2-2 draw.

Jelavic continues to lead Hull City with two goals on eight shot attempts this season. However, the many additions Hull City made at the end of the transfer window will likely cut into his fantasy production as he is no longer the main focal point of the Tigers' attack.

Jelavic headed home Hull City's only goal in Sunday's 2-1 loss to Aston Villa. The goal was his only shot attempt of the match and he did an an assisted shot attempt that was not converted.

Jelavic continues to be Hull City's most dangerous scoring option. He has converted both of his on target shot attempts to goals this season and remains a good low-cost fantasy option against teams that struggle defensively.
