FIFA 20 OTW cards - new Ones to Watch players list and OTW cards explained

FUT 20's hybrid player cards listed and explained.

FIFA 20 Ones to Watch cards are a significant mechanic in Ultimate Team mode, collecting several hand-picked players under the age of 30 who secured high-profile transfers over the summer.

A 'live' version of regular player cards in FUT, Ones to Watch add an intriguing option for players both on the pitch and in the ever-changing FUT Transfer Market, tracking players form over time. Below, we've put together another full FUT 20 OTW players list and explained exactly how they work.

If you're doing a spot of team-building - and, of course, have already read up on the details like FIFA FUT Chemistry and Chemistry Styles - below we've put together a list of all 8 currently confirmed Ones to Watch cards, as well as the details confirmed by the early September teaser from EA Sports.

FIFA 20 Ones to Watch Cards:

PépéArsenalPremier LeagueIvory CoastRM83
HallerWest HamPremier LeagueFranceST83
JoelintonNewcastlePremier LeagueBrazilST78
Wan-BissakaMan UtdPremier LeagueEnglandRB79
E. HazardReal MadridLa LigaBelgiumLW91
T. HazardBorussia DortmundBundesligaBelgiumRW82
Joao FélixAtletico MadridLa LigaPortugalCAM80
JovicReal MadridLa LigaSerbiaST83

The key here will be picking the players who you feel will hit the greatest run of form this season. Wan-Bissaka, for instance, has had a very strong start for Manchester United, as has Joao Félix at Atletico Madrid.


Our tip? Keep a close eye on the values of the OTW cards that are the only ones for their position, like Wan-Bissaka so far - not because they're likely to have better seasons than anyone else, but because they could get a potentially dispriportionate boost to their value on the transfer market.

Looking for more on FIFA 20? So far we have the key details on the FIFA 20 demo date and time and release date, the full FIFA 20 player ratings and top 100 players, an in-progress FIFA 20 Ones to Watch OTW players list, and a full FIFA 20 Icons list, too.

FIFA 20 OTW cards explained - what are Ones to Watch cards and when are they available from?

In brief, Ones to Watch cards work by changing according that player's in-form cards in Ultimate Team. It means that if, say, Messi picks up a new Team of the Week card with improved stats of an Overall 96, compared to his usual 94, his One to Watch card will change to a 96 rating.

They're essentially a fantastic investment card - but it depends on your own powers of prediction too, as the cards are expensive if you don't get one with luck, and will only improve over time if that player is having a great season themselves.

Here's everything you need to know about Ones to Watch cards in FIFA 20:

  • Ones to Watch are only in packs for a limited time - A short while after launch day these will disappear from packs. From then on, they'll only be available on the transfer market, meaning that they function, primarily, as an investment card for fantasy-football style bets on the market - at least until the next round are released in February for the winter update.
  • Ones to Watch increase according to the latest in-form version of the card - So, if Neymar increases from 92 to 94, then he gets a 94-rated card. If he's even better in a later Team of the Week and gets an 95, then his Ones to Watch card will rise to 95 too.
  • Ones to Watch can't decrease in rating - Once they increase, that's the minimum rating the card will have for the rest of the season. It only changes if there's another, higher-rated in-form card released down the line. Even better!
  • Ones to Watch are available in any FUT player pack - That means any free packs, purchased packs, or gifts could have a Ones to Watch player inside, so long as the pack features some player cards itself.
  • Ones to Watch ratings are updated immediately - As soon as the new Team of the Week or other in-form card is available, the Ones to Watch card will increase.
  • Ones to Watch replace their standard versions during the release period - Whilst they're available in packs, Ones to Watch will replace any standard versions of the card. So you can't pack a Nicolas Pépé that isn't a One to Watch card in that first week.
