Scoring 46 in the Bonus Points System (BPS), the Uruguayan produced a goal and two assists to return a 14-point tally – his highest of the season.
Markovic struck Hull's first goal and completed 81% of 33 attempted passes from his right-wing berth. He also made three clearances, blocks and interceptions (CBI) and six recoveries.
Traore supplied three goalscoring opportunities for the visitors, including the assist for Alvaro Negredo’s (£6.1m) early opener.
He also completed eight attempted dribbles, in addition to making six recoveries and a pair of successful tackles.
Hull head coach Marco Silva’s decision to retain a 4-4-2 system reaped rewards, yet he has concerns over the fitness of Hernandez, who was forced off on 51 minutes.
Should the striker fail to recover in time for a weekend trip to Manchester City, Silva could hand the fit-again Evandro (£4.9m) a central-support role behind Oumar Niasse (£5.6m) in a 4-2-3-1 set-up.
Netting his side’s second, Niasse has four goals in the Tigers’ last five home fixtures.
For Middlesbrough, Negredo’s return to the scoresheet boosts his FPL prospects ahead of a home encounter against Burnley.
With caretaker manager Steve Agnew also employing a 4-4-2 set-up, the Spaniard fired five shots on goal in Wednesday’s contest.
No player has produced more shots inside the box than Negredo’s 12 during that spell.
