Jelavic was scratched from Saturday's match against Arsenal after injuring his knee during warm ups, reports the Hull Daily Mail. Jelavic's status is still undetermined, but the injury could leave him on the sidelines for a few weeks.

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 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.
