It has been a week since the launch of FIFA 23 and the game has gained a lot of traction. While keeping in mind that it is the last game by EA Sports under the FIFA name. The game has already made ripples in the gaming industry due to the massive change in gameplay. While most football fans are making the most of the game.
The Transfer market within the FIFA Ultimate Team has already taken a ton of interest. As we are past the first week of the game’s launch, the third Team Of The Week is out now. With certain fan-favorite players getting in-form cards, let us take a look at the best players one should look at.
Team of the Week in FIFA 23
Many players might be new players to FIFA 23 and as such, they might not be clear about what Team Of The Week is. So in brief to give a mini introduction about TOTW it is concerning real-life football taking place. The TOTW consists of players from all the national leagues in the world. While the best performing players in the ongoing week and a team of 28 players. While this consists of even substitutes as well as reverses in the team. These players will have additional stats to their playing cards as well as a new card in the ultimate team. These stat-boosted cards will be exclusively available for one week. While one can obtain these players from either FIFA packs or even the transfer market.
For example, we take the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo who has a base card with a rating of 90. Now if in the upcoming week, in the game for Manchester United he scores 2 goals. He has a higher chance of getting an In-form card in FIFA 23. As such this card will be of a rating of 91 with certain stats having been incremented more. The position he informs the card will receive could be based on the position he played in that game or the one on his regular card. Due to these cards being available for only a week in-game, it has a form of rarity to have and an increasing price market once out of FIFA packs.
Players to try out from FIFA 23 TotW Week 3
Let’s take a look at the TOP 5 players one must try out in their ultimate team squad in FIFA 23
Wissam Ben Yedder – ST- 86
As one famous author said, the rats will never leave your side and so will Ben Yedder. While being one of the most irritating to play against in older FIFA games. Ben Yedder made his name back in FIFA 21 while having an insane base card with the 5-star weak foot. Things haven’t changed much in FIFA 23 either with his Inform card having a 5-star weak foot and 4-star skill moves. As such with his explosive acceleration stat he is one card to be wary of. Rocking an insane 90 dribbling with 86 shooting. He has already become one of the best striker cards in the game. Currently, on the Transfer Market, he is valued at 183,000 coins in the game. If you are looking for a lethal striker who will finish with ease with either foot, Ben Yedder is your guy.
Rafael Leão – ST- 86
Our next player is one of the main attackers for AC Milan and it is Rafael Leao. The wingers have made the streets of Italy his own during the 2021-22 season of the Seria A. As such with his insane form last year he helped his team win the league last season. While being boosted to an 86 rating, the key stat for his card is his speed. Having an insane state of 92 Pace and 86 dribbling will help him run past defences with ease. One thing to keep in mind is due to his nationality it could be tougher for some to get him on full chemistry. While currently on the market being valued at 144,000 coins. His card will be suited to most who want to have a team with other Seria A players in them.
While continuing with the trend of Seria A players, we have Sergej MILINKOVIC-Savic from Lazio. While the midfielder has become one of the most popular players in the game of FIFA, his form has been incredible. As such he tends to play a more box-to-box role while helping the defensive side of things. While one must not forget that he is another player with the 5-star weak foot as well as the power header trait. Due to these two key attributes the player can play a crucial role while attacking. Or during set pieces as a player crosses the ball to score the goal. Currently, his card is valued at 43,250 so it will be a matter of time before we could see him on certain starter teams.
Cesinha – CAM- 81
While one could have added all the highest-rated players in the game to be a part of this team, one cannot forget the mid-range players. As such we have CESINHA who in the eyes of many would be a decent card. While having a base stat of 81 there is a little more to this player. Firstly he has 5-star skills and a 5-star weak foot on his card. Secondly, he has the power free kick trait as well as the Finesse shot trait. As such his shots are more likely to be curved when compared to other players without this stat. While his key attributes will be his 86 pace and 82 shooting. One must note to play a card like his it would be best suited to use a hunter chemistry style on him.
Erling Haaland- ST- 89
Last but not least is Erling Haaland. As a football fan the less I say the better about this player and his card. His base card stats is quite insane for a player his age. While he has gone off to just prove how much of a beast he is as a player, he has the form of a demon. The main reason for his TOTW card is for his hat trick in the game while also providing 2 assists in the game. As such the key stats of his Inform card is his 90 pace, 92 shooting and 88 physical. One must note that it is currently rare to get his information card. This is because of the Ones To Watch cards that have been released.
Currently, the value of his Ones To Watch card is 1,650,000 while his base card is 375,000. If you would like to test out his TOTW I would suggest using him with the engine chemistry on maximum chemistry.
