FIFA 18 Ones to Watch Summer Edition Rules

How the FIFA 18 Ones to Watch Summer Edition Works?
 

Based on what happened last year, these are the official rules we expect to see in FIFA 18:

RULE 1
THE PLAYERS

The 23 players selected for the FIFA 18 Ones to Watch Summer Edition must be some of the most promising players who have been permanently transferred between clubs in the most recent Summer transfer window and are also under the age of 30.

RULE 2
THE BOOST

FIFA 18 Ones to Watch Summer Edition cards boost in rating and stats every time a player gets a new TOTW card.

2.1. The rating will match the highest TOTW, MOTM, ETOT, Hero or Record Breaker card or, if it doesn’t exist, the regular card.
2.2. Ones to Watch cards are not affected by TOTS, Ultimate Scream, FUT Birthday, POTM, POTY and TOTY cards.
2.3. The ratings of OTW cards should be automatically updated as soon as a new card mentioned on 2.1 gets released.
2.4. The ratings update automatically, whether they are in your Club or listed on the Transfer Market.
2.5. The TOTW cards a player received on his old club don’t affect the rating and the stats of his OTW card.

RULE 3
TRANSFERS

If an OTW player is transferred/loaned to a different club, the type attributes and latest TOTW in-form rating will be unaffected. However, his OTW player item type will remain at the players previous club until he gets a TOTW in-form at which point the player’s club, crest and dynamic image will be updated.

3.1. If an OTW player is transferred/loaned to a club not in FIFA 18, the card will remain at the club he was previously at and he will not receive any further TOTW in-forms. His Ones To Watch item type will continue to carry the last in-form rating he received.

RULE 4
POSITIONS

If a Ones To Watch Player’s TOTW in-form is in a different position to their Ones To Watch item, the OTW will keep unchanged. He will, however, continue to receive any attribute upgrades from that and future TOTW in-forms.

FIFA 18 Ones to Watch – Player by Player

How are the OTW Players?

🇧🇷 GK: Ederson (Manchester City)
The young Brazilian became the second-most expensive goalkeeper of all time when Manchester City pried him from Benfica this summer. Well-known for his lightning reflexes, physical presence in the box, and excellent composure with the ball, Ederson could be the breakout goalkeeper of the 2017-18 season.

🇬🇧 RB: Kyle Walker (Manchester City)
Walker made a high-profile transfer from Tottenham Hotspur to Manchester City after many years of consistent attacking right-back play at the London club. Not only does he have the speed to be equally dangerous on attack and defense, the Englishman also has a wicked right foot that he uses to create inch-perfect crosses and set pieces. For a well-rounded defender that will score your FUT squad goals and stop opponents from doing the same, Walker is the right-back for you.

🇵🇹 RB: Nelson Semedo (FC Barcelona)
Barcelona have been searching for a couple of seasons, but they’ve finally found the perfect right-back. Portuguese international Semedo is an absolute beast on the right flank, where he uses his speed and dribbling to fly up the pitch and create chances for teammates without slouching on defense when his team loses the ball.

🇨🇮 RB: Serge Aurier (Tottenham Spurs)
Ivorian international Aurier arrived at Tottenham Hotspur this summer from PSG bearing a wealth of experience and talent, despite being just 24. Aurier brings a very physical and aggressive presence to his favoured right-back position, and his endless supply of energy allows him to hustle up and down the flank to assist in both attack and defense.

🇮🇹 CB: Leonardo Bonucci (AC Milan)
After capping off seven seasons at Juventus with massive success in Italy and in Europe, the intimidating Italian centre-back was signed by fellow Serie A giants AC Milan this summer. Bonucci is one of the most feared defenders in the world because of his unique combination of ruthless tackling and elegant passing ability.

🇨🇴 CB: Davinson Sánchez (Tottenham Spurs)
Young Colombian center-back Sánchez joined one of the best defenses in the English Premier League at Tottenham Hotspur, thanks to his strong first season in Europe with Ajax. He was only with the Amsterdam club for a season, but Sánchez fit perfectly into their legendary Total Football system. He was able to hone excellent passing and possession skills and add them to his already promising defensive capabilities. For a dynamic defender that provides much more than most centre backs, Sánchez will be indispensable to your FUT squad.

🇮🇹 RM: Federico Bernardeschi (Juventus)
Another intriguing, dangerous young attacker signed by Juventus ahead of their title defense this season, Bernardeschi had a breakthrough season for Fiorentina last year that made him highly sought-after in Italy and beyond. Quite versatile and able to play everywhere from wing-back to attacking midfield, Bernardeschi will slot as easily into your FUT squad as he has at Juventus.

🇺🇦 RW: Andriy Yarmolenko (Borussia Dortmund)
Exciting Ukraine international Yarmolenko joined Borussia Dortmund after nine years at Dynamo Kyiv. Equally adept on the wings as he is up top as a forward or a bit deeper as a number 10, Yarmolenko brings attacking versatility to a Dortmund side with high ambition.

🇧🇫 RW: Bertrand Traore (Olympique Lyonnais)
After impressing in two Eredivisie loan spells, Traore permanently transferred from Chelsea to Lyon ahead of this season. Already an accomplished and experienced Burkina Faso international at 22, Traore thrives in wide right positions that allow him to get creative with the ball at his feet. Traore has a very high ceiling and has already improved in just a few matches with his new club, making him perfect for any ambitious FUT squad.

🇪🇬 RW: Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)
Salah made his triumphant return to the English Premier League this summer with a bang after transferring from Roma to Liverpool FC. Just like the Egyptian winger lit up the Italian league with his boundless energy and pace, he’s already shown himself to be a member of the Premier League elite with his impressive dribbling, creativity, and goals for the Merseyside club.

🇫🇷 CM: Corentin Tolisso (FC Bayern)
Tolisso made the move from his first professional club, Lyon, to German giants Bayern München this summer. Often deployed as a deep-lying midfielder, the French international is the perfect conduit between defense and attack with his incisive passing and masterful reading of the game. If you’re looking for a complete midfielder to round out your FUT squad, Tolisso is your man.

🇨🇮 CM: Franck Kessié (AC Milan)
Currently on loan with AC Milan from fellow Serie A side Atalanta, Kessié is an immensely-talented central midfielder who has an uncommon combination of skill and intelligence to go with his unlimited stamina and energy. Usually deployed in a box-to-box role, the 20-year-old Kessié seamlessly switches from marking opponents and stealing the ball, to sending in through passes for his teammates.

🇨🇴 CAM: James Rodríguez (FC Bayern)
Explosive playmaker James appeared 32 times for Real Madrid during their trophy-laden 2016-17 campaign, and now the Colombian is set to impress in the Bundesliga this season on his loan to Bayern Munich. His slick passing ability and technique make him extremely versatile, and there’s no doubt we’ll see his name on the scoresheet often — for both goals and assists.

🇮🇸 CAM: Gylfi Sigurðsson (Everton)
Sigurðsson brings a wealth of experience and valuable skills to Everton FC, where he transferred to from Swansea City ahead of this season. Sigurðsson is well-known for his powerful right foot, which makes him one of the more dangerous players in FUT — especially on set pieces and when shooting from deeper positions.

🇵🇹 LM: Bruma (RB Leipzig)
After an impressing the last couple of seasons at Real Sociedad and Galatasaray, the Portuguese winger was picked up by RB Leipzig. Bruma is an exciting and versatile player for your FUT squad who can play across the front line, though he shines particularly well from wide positions. His speed and technical ability inform an uncanny knack to drift into spaces opened up by teammates in the middle, so that he can either slip a pass to a forward or take a shot on goal himself.

🇧🇷 LM: Douglas Costa (Juventus)
Tricky winger Costa is on a season-long loan from Bayern Munich to reigning Serie A champions Juventus. His phenomenal talent for creating from the wing will be a huge asset to the Turin club and your FUT squad.

🇸🇳 LW: Keita Baldé Diao (AS Monaco)
Keita made huge strides at Lazio last season, prompting Monaco to bring the talented attacker in to play alongside the likes of Radamel Falcao. The Senegal international is often deployed as a forward, where he scored many of his 16 goals in Serie A last season, but his speed and dribbling ability also allow him to thrive in wide positions.

🇧🇷 LW: Neymar (Paris Saint-Germain)
The most expensive transfer in football history, Neymar’s move to Paris Saint-German had the entire footballing world talking. Already showing his class in Ligue 1 and beginning to form a devastating partnership with PSG teammates Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappé, the Brazilian’s skill, flair, and attacking strength make him equally lethal in your FUT squad.

🇫🇷 ST: Alexandre Lacazette (Arsenal)
Having been with Lyon since he was seven years old, speedy forward Lacazette’s performances in Ligue 1 earned him a big move to Arsenal FC and the English Premier League this year. The French international is coming off the top goalscoring season of his career, and Lacazette gave no indication of slowing down when he scored his first Arsenal goal within two minutes of his competitive debut.

🇪🇸 ST: Álvaro Morata (Chelsea)
After returning to Real Madrid for a single season after two years at Juventus, Morata left his hometown for a second time this summer to join Chelsea FC. The Spaniard is one of the most complete and talented forwards in world football, combining his big physical presence, pace, and deft touch in front of goal.

🇫🇷 ST: Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain)
The second of Paris Saint-Germain’s massive signings this summer, Mbappé has talent and technique to spare and has already become a key member of PSG’s phenomenal attacking trio. His blistering speed and dribbling skills will make him an indispensable member of any FUT squad this season.

🇧🇪 ST: Romelu Lukaku (Manchester United)
On the heels of the most successful of his four seasons with Everton, the prolific Belgian forward transferred to Manchester United this summer and continued his excellent scoring record by notching five goals in his first five league matches for his new club. With a stronger team around him and an opportunity to compete in Europe, Lukaku could break all kinds of records this season.

🇫🇷 ST: Theo Hernández (Real Madrid)
Though he technically made the move to Real Madrid from cross-town rivals Atlético, it was the French left-back’s sensational performances on loan at Alavés last season that gained him the transfer to Los Blancos. Hernández earned such a big transfer to Real because of his dribbling and creativity, unmatched by nearly any other teenager in Europe — at any position.

  1. so if you have any further infromation and/or sources for example acording to hernandez, bernado silva, please let us know. its important for investing 😉
    regards

  2. my pont is, i dont think the site it is right now. since some of the players you marked as confirmend are not out for sure yet, so it kind of misleading

  3. I believe that by now (9/27/2017), only Lukaku, Lacazette, Neymar, D. Costa, J. Rodriguez, Bonucci are offcially confirmed to be in OTW by EA twitter.

    I am wondering what’s the source for the rest players with green checks on your list?

  4. Hello Rodrigo. Please what is your advice to buy of thenm? I sold near to buy one or 2 players of them. Maybe their price will go higher after the inform release to them… so please what is your advice? Thank you
