This is something that we’ve decided to start doing due to the immense number of people that use the team of the week to make a bit of a profit in FIFA Ultimate Team. Although obviously not the official list, this is a list of the players that we think will make it into the team of the week (the edition that’s going to come out this week).
I am going to divide this predicted lineup into three sections so that you get to pick and choose which players you want to pick up from the market. The first section, called the ‘Big Names’, are the players that are renowned in the footballing world and names that potentially anyone who doesn’t even play soccer will recognize (e.g. Messi, Suarez, Neymar, Ronaldo, Rooney, Ibrahimovic, etc.). After them are the ‘Big Bets’, players that are either rising stars or those that are not in the world class category, not yet anyway. In short, these are the guys that most people will likely invest into because of their reasonable price tags (e.g. Pedro, Willian, Kane, Busquets, Müller, Aubameyang, etc.). And last but not least are the ‘Big Risks’, which are players that are largely unheard of outside of the footballing world, but are either currently on fire or growing into a more renowned player (e.g. Lucas Pérez, Dmitri Payet, Lanzini, Kurzawa, etc.).
- The Big Names – Jamie Vardy(why not?)
- The Big Bets – Bernd Leno, David Alaba, Kagawa, Lucas Moura, Miroslav Klose, Erik Lamela
- The Big Risks – Hatem Ben Arfa, Divock Origi, Ashley Williams, Lukasz Fabianski, Andy Carroll, Alderweireld, Aaron Cresswell
This week should be one without any world-class names, since, you may have noticed, neither the BBC nor the MSN were in full throttle this weekend. Especially MSN, it has to be said. Regardless, the team rating should be right around the 80 range, so expect it to provide the typical thrill, with no surprise packages.
