New week and new predictions for the FIFA 1 TOTW 22 Team of the Week. As usual, EA will offer new IF cards based on the results of the best players from the past week. The novelty for FIFA 22 obviously lies in the presence of a Featured card, put forward by EA, which will give a double boost to a card 80 and below. We therefore present to you our predictions for the new cards which will be available in the packs from Wednesday at 19 p.m.
Despite conceding a goal at the weekend against West Ham, De Gea is our top pick for the FIFA 22 First Team of the Season goalkeeper position. penalty in stoppage time of the game, allowing Manchester United to take the victory home.
The season is off to a good start for Yassine Bounou, who obtained two TOTW cards last year on FIFA 21. The Moroccan goalkeeper was once again Sevilla FC's key player, allowing the club to score a point against Real Sociedad.
One of the best gold cards at the start of FIFA 22, Milan Skriniar could see his rating explode with a TOTW version from the start of the game. It must be said that the Inter defender made an impression with a goal in the wide club victory (6 to 1) against Bologna.
Again, this is probably THE card to watch for in the early weeks of FIFA 22 as Timber is an incredible starter team card. EA could come and break this dynamic by giving a TOTW version to the Dutch player, withdrawing his Gold card for an IF which should be in great demand due to incredible speed at the start of the FUT season.
One of the best cards on FIFA 21, Kimmich is already back in the Team of the Season following an excellent performance from Bayern this weekend. The defending champion crushed Bochum 7-0 and while Lewandowski scored again, his German team-mate also contributed with two goals. Note that here, EA could select Leroy Sané instead of Kimmich.
Back in the Premier League after a season in British Division 2, Sarr should once again be an interesting option at the start of FIFA 22. As for his season, the Senegalese player distinguished himself with a very nice double against at the other promoted Norwitch City, allowing Watford to win the game 3-1.
Well, do we still have to introduce Haaland? The excellent Norwegian striker continues to score as he has already scored seven goals in the Bundesliga after five games… The Borussia player recorded two additional goals against Union Berlin and should be the big card of this first TOTW on FIFA 22.
If there is a position that is often expensive at the launch of FIFA, it is the post of Goalscorer in the Premier League. With few interesting options, Ivan Toney could be a wanted card if he earns a spot in TOTW 1 following his goal in Bratford's 2-0 win at Wolves.
One of the big new features of FUT mode on FIFA 22 is to implement a Featured card in the Team of the week. This card with an overall rating of 80 or less receives a double boost based on the player's performance over the past week. Vinicius Jr had a great game, contributing to both Real Madrid goals against Valencia. While Karim Benzema could totally fit here after also contributing with a goal and an assist, our pick is the young Brazilian instead.
TOTW cards are often interesting at high level but also for DCEs as well as to achieve specific objectives in friendly match mode. Therefore, even on players whose overall rating would be quite low, it is necessary to know how to get these TOTW cards on FIFA 22.
The first source is obviously the transfer market, where you can find a player's TOTW cards in the special versions of their cards. Be careful, however, because the IF cards sell for much more than the basic version.
A second source remains the game's Gold packs, which have these special cards for one week (from Wednesday to the following Wednesday at 19 p.m.). So be careful because once this week is over, it will be impossible to drop them in packs.
Additionally, Team of the Week cards can be obtained as FUT Champion (WL) rewards based on your rank. If this year, the rewards could change since it will be possible to obtain your packs at the end of all your matches (rather than on Thursday), EA should not remove the presence of the TOTW cards.
Finally, specific TOTW Packs will be present during the DCE season, although these are often unprofitable because they are totally random.
If the cards of the players selected in the Team of the week are often good sources of investment, it is also possible to earn credits via the TOTW. Indeed, there are several methods to speculate on the market.
So, the easiest and regular way is to bet on the normal Gold cards of the current TOTW players. These are not present in the packs during the week, limiting the quantity of cards. If a player is looking to use these cards for DCEs or for their team, the prices can spike a lot. So buy the cards in anticipation of this rise, speculating on TOTW's predictions. This technique will mostly work in the early months of the game, until around the end of December.
In addition, another method is to analyze future good TOTW cards and thus speculate on the cards related to them. For example, if Haaland receives a Team of the Week card, it's likely players will be looking to incorporate him into their FUT roster. Thus, they will also seek to link this new card with other Bundesliga players, Dortmund players or even Norwegian players in order to create the best possible links. It is therefore possible to invest in cards allowing perfect links, just before the release of the new Team of the week. This technique will come in handy with the release of special maps later in the season, until around mid-March, before which time Team of the Week starts to look less interesting on FIFA 22.
Note that these two strategies require good anticipation of the market, but also finding the right timing. Often the cards to buy go up quickly, so you need to plan ahead who to buy. Also, this bull run won't last long, so it's necessary to play for a few days and quickly sell your cards.
So much for our predictions of the new FIFA 1 TOTW 22 Team of the Week players. If as often EA will seek to muddy the waters by selecting slightly more obscure profiles, we are confident that the majority of the players listed above will be available. as a special card from the launch of FIFA 22. As a reminder, the TOTW 1 will be officially unveiled on Wednesday at 19 p.m.
