These footballers are rewarded for their efforts in FUT with special in-form items, boosting their attributes to make them more useful in the game’s current meta.
Despite not including many mainstream names or being the highest rated TOTW roster in recent memory, the TOTW 25 still includes players with impressive attributes that make them exceptional on the virtual pitch.

Ianaki Williams and other dominant players in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team’s TOTW 25
1) Antoine Griezmann
As the highest rated player in TOTW 25, Antoine Griezmann is also the most powerful card on the roster. The French forward has been in scintillating form this season, leading Atlético Madrid to victory with his playmaking and goal-scoring abilities. His brace against Almeria los rojiblancosearning him this in-form item.
Griezmann already has several special cards in the FIFA 23 Ultimate Team, including the World Cup Path to Glory Edition and Player of the Month items. All three are 89-rated in form, differing only in their skill moves and weak-footed ability. While the in-form version is the worst of the three, he is still incredible for budget La Liga squads in FIFA 23.
2) Diogo Jota
Liverpool regained some form in the Premier League with a 6–1 victory over Leeds United. Diogo Jota was the star of the show, scoring two goals and earning a spot on the TOTW 25 roster. The Portuguese shooter, who has been sidelined for most of the campaign due to injuries, made a stunning comeback and earned his first in-form item of the season.
Despite not being as impressive as his newly upgraded 92-rated Fantasy FUT item, the 87-rated Jota is still one of the most impressive and viable cards on this week’s team. His five-star weak foot and attacking power make him a force to be reckoned with, as he is able to turn and shoot with either foot.
3) Inaki Williams
Iñaki Williams has always been a force to be reckoned with in the world of Ultimate Team, quickly becoming a fan-favorite due to his raw speed and brute strength. Despite not being as popular in FIFA 23 due to the lack of many special items and the nationality change, he is now more dominant than ever with his latest in-form version.
Williams stands out because of his incredible speed, with a speed rating of 96. The athletic Bilbao marksman will be able to get past defenders with ease, especially when deployed as a super-sub. He also has an 86 shooting and 89 physical ability, making him an all-round threat for defenders on the flanks.
PSG are progressing well towards retaining their Ligue 1 title, and their latest win over RC Lens has consolidated their lead at the top of the table. Portuguese youngster Vitinha was the star of the show, controlling the tempo of the game in midfield and also scoring a crucial goal. His inclusion in TOTW 25 earned him the first in-form item on the FIFA 23 Ultimate Team.
Vitinha already has one of the more impressive Future Stars items in FIFA 23. However, their TOTW card isn’t that far off in terms of overall rating and stats, and will undoubtedly be an incredible budget option for gamers with Ligue 1 squads in FUT 23.
5) Jawad El Yamik
Jawad El Yamik is somewhat of a legend among the FIFA 23 fanbase. Their Dynamic Duos SBC version, released earlier in the game cycle, quickly became a fan favorite because of their overpowering features. He is still widely regarded as the most underrated centre-back in the game, and his TOTW 25 version is even better.
In-form El Yamiq has better stats and attributes, despite being lower-rated than his Duos version. It is also very cheap to buy. With 92 Speed, 83 Defense, and 88 Physicality, this item is an absolute bargain.
