RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

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.

Jelavic returned to Hull City's Starting XI for Tuesday's match against Sunderland. He managed just one shot attempt before being subbed off in the 73rd minute of the 1-1 draw.

Before missing the previous Hull City match due to injury, Jelavic had scored in two consecutive matches. He has been left out of the Hull City Starting XI in each of the last five away league matches either because of injury or coach's decision. With Hull City's next league match on the road against Leicester City, use caution if you want intend to play Jelavic.

Jelavic (knee) may return Tuesday against Sunderland, the Hull Daily Mail reports.

Jelavic was held out of Saturday's match against Stoke City after picking up a knock in training, but it is apparently not overly serious, giving the team confidence he could get back this week. He could be joined by Dame N'Doye, who was rested against Stoke after being away all week.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jelavic picked up a knock in training and will not play Saturday against Stoke City.

Sone Aluko will get the start up front, with Gaston Ramirez also playing in an attacking spot. Given the team described the issue as minor, it's possible Jelavic could return Tuesday against Sunderland.
