Aluko attempted a team-high three shot attempts and put one on target in 67 minutes during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Manchester City.

Aluko has been Hull City's most impressive striker over the last few weeks. His playing time has increased due to injuries to other Tigers attackers, but he is playing himself into a larger role. He will need to convert some of his chances before his fantasy value increases, but he is worth keeping an eye on.

Aluko returned to his role as a substitute for Hull City during Saturday's 0-3 loss to Newcastle United. Despite waiting til the 56th minute to come on the field, he was the Tigers' most active attacker and tied for the team lead with two shots attempts on target.

Aluko is third on the depth chart behind teammates Nikica Jelavic and Abel Hernandez. Now that both are healthy, it is likely Aluko will return to his role as substitute for Hull City.

Aluko was named to Hull City's Starting XI for Sunday's match against West Ham United. The Hull City attack was limited and Aluko managed only two shot attempts despite playing the full 90 minutes.

Sunday was Aluko's first appearance since missing two matches with a groin injury. He will likely see similar playing time while teammates Nikica Jelavic and Abel Hernandez miss time due to injury.

Aluko could be in line to return to the lineup Saturday against West Ham United after missing out on the last match due to a calf injury, reports the Hull Daily Mail.

With fellow strikers Nikica Jelavic and Abel Hernandez out through the end of January, Aluko could be in line to be the best striker option for Hull City. A road tie against West Ham United will be tough to earn much fantasy value and Aluko will have to show improvement in his ability to finish to merit much fantasy consideration.

Aluko came on as a substitute in the 53rd minute Wednesday and scored the equalizing goal just six minutes later during Hull City's 1-1 draw against Everton.

Aluko has been used primarily as a substitute this season and now has one goal on just five shot attempts. It will be interesting to see if he gets any playing time when Abel Hernandez returns.

Aluko came on as a substitute in the 56th minute of Saturday's 2-2 draw against Newcastle United. He finished the match without attempting a shot, and was shown a yellow card for a hard foul on Newcastle's Yoan Gouffran.

Aluko is clearly behind Nikica Jelavic and Abel Hernandez in terms of playing time for Hull City. His fantasy value will remain low as he will see limited action for the foreseeable future.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Aluko came on as a substitute in Sunday's match against Aston Villa as the Tigers found themselves trailing late in the match. In just 19 minutes of action, Aluko attempted two shots, put one on target, and assisted on another shot attempt.

Sunday marked Aluko's first league appearance for Hull City this season. He is not expected to get much playing time, so his fantasy value will remain limited.

Aluko, who has missed the last few games with an ankle injury, will be given a late fitness test ahead of Sunday's match against Everton, the club's official web site reports.

Aluko has one goal and three assists in 17 appearances this season and even if he passes fit, he remains a marginal fantasy performer.
