Four more What If upgrades on the way in FUT 21

Team of the Week (TOTW) 26 is coming soon to FIFA 21 Ultimate Team this week and it could bring with it some fantastic new upgrades.

There are several What If players due a ratings boost, and we could see some of FUT 21’s Headliners involved in TOTW 26 too.

Take a look at who we think is due an upgrade on FIFA 21 Ultimate Team below.

Dynamic Cards

There are a variety of dynamic cards available now in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

The What If cards are the latest set of dynamic cards available in Ultimate Team. Each What If player can receive an upgrade of +2 if their team scores a certain number of goals or keeps a clean sheet.

The Ones to Watch and Headliners cards work in the same way as each other, with their special card improving in line with their highest in-form card.

The only difference is Headliners remain +1 ahead of their highest IF card, or +2 if their team completes a four-match win streak.


What If

With this week’s matches, over half of the What If players should have received their upgrades.

Four players should be boosted this week, with Dries Mertens the highest-rated as his OVR will reach 91.

DOUBLE UP - Mertens will receive a +2 boost this week

Spurs left back Sergio Reguilon is another top player ready for a boost, with his rating set to reach 89 after Spurs kept a clean sheet against Aston Villa.

It is bad news for two Argentine players though, as Alejandro Gomez and Roberto Pereyra have reached their five-game limit without reaching their six-goal target. No upgrade for them.

What If Upgrades (Wednesday, 24 March)

  • Dries Mertens (OVR 89 - 91)
  • Sergio Reguilon (OVR 87 - 89)
  • Luka Jovic (OVR 87 - 89)
  • Pierre Lees-Melou (OVR 86 - 88)

Ones to Watch

The Ones to Watch (OTW) players have had a quiet 2021 so far, with just three players receiving upgrades this year.

This looks likely to continue this week, although Martin Odegaard’s performance against West Ham is an outside shot for TOTW 26.


The Headliners cards have had a busier 2021 than OTW, with both Leon Goretzka and Riyad Mahrez featuring in TOTW 24 a couple of weeks back.

We could see another high-rated Headliners player feature in this week’s Team of the Week too.

LETHAL - 93 Shooting could be deadly for Benzema

Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema should feature in TOTW 26 alongside Robert Lewandowski after scoring twice and providing an assist as Los Blancos beat Celta Vigo 3-1.

As Benzema has already received the 4-game win streak upgrade, his Headliners could reach 95 OVR.
