These cards have dynamic ratings, which means that their OVR and stats will increase in accordance with certain rules.
OTW cards have not only hit packs and SBCs, but you can pick up a FREE special item by completing some simple objectives.

OTW Upgrades Explained
Firstly, OTW cards will automatically upgrade to the OVR of the in-form card with every selection in the Team of the Week (TOTW).
The OTW version will not change position in line with the TOTW card.
OTW players will also be eligible for a 'Wins to Watch' upgrade.
For the Wins to Watch upgrade, players will receive a one-time upgrade to their stats if their team wins three matches out of their next eight domestic league games, starting from the full launch of FIFA 23.
'Nations to Watch' upgrades is a new feature that EA has implemented for the OTW items in line with the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
