As years go by and a new version of FIFA is released, FIFA Ultimate Team has always been one of the most popular modes to play. FIFA Ultimate Team does not only provide a realistic gaming experience for the players but also integration between real life football and the game.

- Wins to watch – win for the team the player plays for
- Nations to watch – win for the national team the player plays for
- Team of the week – individual upgrade when players make the team of the week

Ones to Watch Trading Tips
Ones to watch cards fluctuate in price and can be a high-risk, high-reward game to play. All the tips mentioned below will share the same principle, buying at the lowest price and selling at the highest price:
When to buy
Players will receive an upgrade when they win a match. On the other hand, losing the match will decrease their value. For that reason, it is best to buy ones to watch players after they lose a game at the weekend.
The best time to buy losing players would be before they enter another matchweek, when the prices usually start to inflate.
When to sell
Once you understand the timing to buy, selling ones to watch players will be very easy to do. As you probably guess, the best timing to sell is right after your player wins a game, featured in the team of the week, or after winning man of the match.
Now that you understand how Ones to Watch works, it is time for you to explore this exciting feature of FIFA 23 Ultimate Team, enjoy!
