Nikica Jelavic is in fantastic scoring form for Hull City this season with Week 7 seeing him score his fourth goal in seven league matches.
The Croatian hit man has played all but 10 minutes of the Premier League season for Steve Bruce and it is easy to see why. Despite the volume of new attacking arrivals at the KC Stadium, Jelavic has kept his place by scoring goals and doing so fairly efficiently. You'd like to see more than 6 of his 17 shots hit the target but his ability to turn six shots on target into four goals helps make up for the inaccuracy. In formats that prioritize goals over other contributions, Jelavic has been one of the better forwards in the league. In formats that put a greater value on secondary actions (SOTs, corners won, successful crosses, etc.) Jelavic is an OK option but he becomes a poor play when he doesn't score. Oct 8 - 3:13 PM
