Now that FIFA 23 has been out in the wild for a few months, its Ultimate Team (FUT) meta is growing and showing which players are turning out to be the best. Some cards are better than others and this definitely includes the dynamic Ones To Watch (OTW) cards.


FIFA 23's OTW cards have been impressing some, with some good picks by the developers leading to some notable upgrades throughout the season. These dynamic cards change across the year owing to the performances of real-life players.

It's worth knowing which OTW cards to get hold of and that's where we come in. Read on to find out all of the confirmed FIFA 23 OTW cards, discover how to get them, and how to track the upgrades.

FIFA 23 Ones to Watch upgrade tracker

FIFA 23 Ones to Watch cards are upgraded every Friday. OTW cards receive upgrades based on the performances of their real-life counterparts, earning a ratings boost on Wins to Watch (if that player wins three out of their next eight league matches) and Nations to Watch (get an overall rating upgrade if that player wins one match at the World Cup).

As not every OTW player is at the World Cup, not every card will receive an upgrade. Without further ado, this is the complete FIFA 23 OTW tracker, updated as of 6th December 2022:
