New week and new predictions for the FIFA 28 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.
After a first TOTW during an international break at the end of last year, Keylor Navas could get a new special version there following a victory for Costa Rica. It must be said that the PSG goalkeeper was one of the key players in his country's victory against Canada, yet leader of the qualifying group for the World Cup.
As always, predicting EA's choices on Guardians is a difficult task. With few obvious options, our pick falls on Guillermo Ochoa. The Mexican goalkeeper was heroic against the USA, allowing his team to finish with an important point in view of qualification.
One of the key players in FC Barcelona's return to the front of the stage, Jordi Alba also continues to shine in the selection. The veteran was the author of an assist in Spain's narrow 2-1 victory over Albania. That should give him a somewhat playable map, although quite a few DG options exist within La Liga.
Excellent during the Euro but a little forgotten by EA when improving its Gold card, Luke Shaw continues to perform with the English selection. Indeed, the Man United player scored the first goal of the English victory against Switzerland.
Another AS Monaco player? You have to believe that the Monegasques are now regulars in the Team of the Week, this time with the return of Tchouaméni. The midfielder scored the winning goal against Ivory Coast which should give him a playable 86 card, a taste before getting his hands on his Future Stars for some.
Present in OTW and in a DCE Showdown, De Paul did not know the Team of the Week on FIFA 22. The Argentinian was the main contributor to the victory of his selection with two assists. If there is a risk that EA will place Messi here (one goal) or Di Maria (one goal and one assist), we prefer the De Paul option.
Again a player who already has a Meta card on FIFA 22, Christian Pulisic distinguished himself with a superb hat-trick for the USA. The Chelsea player therefore allows his selection to cling to the dream of the World Cup, following this wide victory 5 to 1 against Panama.
We continue this trend with this time Gareth Bale. Although he obtained an RTTF card a few weeks ago, the Welshman should be selected in this TOTW 28. It must be said that the veteran was the man of the match, scoring the two goals of the victory for the Country of Wales, synonymous with qualification for the 2022 World Cup.
One of the big new features of FUT mode on FIFA 22 is to implement a Featured card in the Team of the Week. For TOTW 28, our choice is Milot Rashica, the Norwich player, author of a goal and two assists in Kosovo's 5-0 victory.
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, even if 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 28 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 28 will be officially unveiled on Wednesday at 19 p.m.
