Jedinak scored a 45th minute penalty in Saturday's 2-2 draw against West Brom.

Jedinak made no mistake from the spot after Sebastian Pocognoli brought down Yannick Bolasie in the penalty area. Jedinak then made a rash challenge in stoppage time to give Saido Berahino the chance to draw level from the spot and he duly obliged. The Palace captain, who also picked up a booking, now has three goals this season.

Jedinak scored in the 54th minute of Saturday's 2-0 win over Leicester.

The Palace captain headed in Jason Puncheon's free kick to give the home side an unassailable two goal lead that was rarely threatened. Jedinak has teamed up with Joe Ledley and James McArthur in central midfield to formed formidable trio that protects against any goals going in at the other end. Goals are a definite bonus for fantasy players and it remains unlikely that he will score any more than around four for the whole campaign.

Jedinak opened the scoring for Palace in the 30th minute in a 3-2 win at Everton on Sunday.

Jedinak smashed the spot kick into the top corner after Tim Howard felled midfielder James McArthur in the box. It was a return to form for the captain after a torrid time out last week saw him give away a penalty. Even though Jedinak now has a goal and an assist, he is a low fantasy option given his defensive responsibilities.

Jedinak gave away a penalty and was booked in Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Burnley.

Jedinak pulled down Burnley striker Lukas Jutkiewicz in the area when both were challenging for a header and owes a debt of gratitude to ‘keeper Julian Speroni after the Argentine saved Scott Arfield’s spot kick.

Jedinak scored his sixth international goal for Australia in a 3-2 win over Saudi Arabia.

The friendly took place in London and Jedinak’s goal came after he headed in a free kick during the first half. Palace’s captain went on to play for 60 minutes and his next cap will be the half century in appearances for the country. Jedinak represents a low-level fantasy option given his defensive nature and lack of either goals or assists.

Jedinak set up Crystal Palace's first goal and was later booked in the defeat to West Ham United.

Jedinak played a ball from the left-hand-side to find Marouane Chamakh, who smashed a shot home from 20 yards, and the Palace captain also picked up a yellow card late in the second half. Jedinak’s first booking of the season is not a surprise for fantasy owners, however, he takes free kicks around the edge of the box and a first assist is a rarity for anyone that owns the combative midfielder.

Jedinak was named Australia's captain for this year's World Cup, reports The Sydney Morning Herald.

Jedinak has scored one goal in six appearances since the start of 2013 for the Socceroos. In his international career he has tallied three goals in 23 total appearances. Australia is expected to struggle after being drawn into Group B with Spain, Netherlands, and Chile, leaving Jedinak with limited fantasy potential.

Jedinak was forced off in the 59th minute of Sunday's match with Fulham after he suffered a groin strain, reports Fox Sports. The extent of the injury is unknown as he will now try to be fit in time to join Australia for the World Cup.

Jedinak had played every minute for Crystal Palace before being forced out in the final game. The injury does not appear serious, but it is uncertain how this will affect his status with the Australian national team.
