EA Sports have unveiled the second Ones to Watch team in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. It will be available in-game on Friday, October 16.

FIFA fans, prepare your coinage! The second Ones To Watch team is coming to FIFA 21 this Friday and just like last time, it contains some fantastic cards for such an early time in the season.

October 16 Update

Ones To Watch Team 2 will have a 12th man on its roster! We're not talking about the fans either. English Premier League leaders Everton chip in with one of their big summer signings James Rodríguez. The Colombian attacker is joining the fold as a Squad Building Challenge. Specifics on how to obtain him will come with the release of Ones To Watch Team 2 at 19:00 CEST today.

What Are FIFA 21 Ones To Watch Cards

Every year EA Sports honor the most important transfers of the season with a special card. Only players who have changed clubs in the summer are eligible for a Once to Watch card.

The special feature of the OTW cards is that they are dynamic items. Each time a player makes it into the Team of the Week (or receives another performance-based special card), the OTW card increases accordingly.

No wonder that these cards are traded for ridiculous amounts of cash on the FUT transfer market. It does hold risks though. If the player gets injured the card's value decreases dramatically and even if you get a Ones to Watch card, there's no guarantee that it will pan out.

FIFA 21 Ones To Watch Pack 2

The first Ones To Watch pack was impressive enough, but with so many transfers this summer, team No. 2 does not fall behind. These 11 new cards will become available on Friday, October 16, at 19:00 CET.

  • LM: Leroy Sané - 85 OVR (Bayern München)
  • CM: Thiago - 85 OVR (Liverpool)
  • CAM: Kai Havertz - 85 OVR (Chelsea)
  • CM: Arthur - 84 OVR (Juventus/Piemonte Calcio)
  • CM: Donny van de Beek - 83 OVR (Manchester United)
  • CM: Arturo Vidal - 83 OVR (Inter)
  • RB: Nélson Semedo - 83 OVR (Wolverhampton Wanderers)
  • ST: Rodrigo - 82 OVR (Leeds United)
  • RB: Alessandro Florenzi - 81 OVR (Paris Saint-Germain)
  • RM: Ferrán Torres - 81 OVR (Manchester City)
  • ST: Jonathan David - 77 OVR (Lille)
  • CAM: James Rodríguez - 84 OVR (Everton) - SBC

Which Ones To Watch Cards to Go For?

Besides Leroy Sané, who is already the best left midfielder in the Bundesliga, right back Nélson Semedo is worth a look. Semedo was extremely popular in FIFA 20 and is one of the best options at his position again this year despite his lower rating.

Leeds' Rodrigo is another player expected to tear in FUT. He is already a speed demon with great dribbling and decent physique for an attacker. Imagine if he and Leeds keep it up. His OTW card would bring the house down.

Both Ones To Watch packs will be available until next Friday, October 23. You don't want to miss out on this gold fever!
