FC 24 Ultimate Team: Team of the Week 16 Revealed

Finally, a TOTW with some useable players!

Every Wednesday, EA releases a Team of the Week squad consisting of 18 players, reflecting the standout performances of real-life footballers in both Domestic League and International games. However, the current state of the feature has diminished its impact, relegating TOTW cards to mere Squad Building Challenge assets rather than coveted additions to teams. It has been a considerable amount of time since we’ve witnessed a TOTW with multiple genuinely useable cards.

However, the most recent release marks a positive departure from recent trends and features a few useable cards. TOTW 16 is headlined by the Egyptian king Mohammad Salah, who scored a brace in Liverpool’s first game of 2024. While both Cristiano Ronaldo and Sadio Mané delivered impressive performances with brace-scoring feats for Al Nassr, EA has opted to include the latter in TOTW 16.

Phil Foden, who gave an assist to Rodri and Julian Alvarez in Manchester City’s 2-0 win over Sheffield United is also a notable addition to TOTW 16 just like Genoa’s Radu Dragusin. While he may not look impressive at first, Benfica’s Rafa Silva with 95 pace will be a compelling addition to any squad.

Without further ado, let’s take a deep dive into the latest Team of the Week squad.

FC 24 Team of the Week Changes

EA continues on enhancing the in-game presence of TOTW this year with three major updates:

  • Enhanced Upgrades for Lower Rated Players: Lower-rated OVR players will receive significant upgrades, ensuring all TOTW players will be at least 80+ OVR from launch. After first TOTW refresh, all TOTW will be at least 83+ rated.
  • Balanced Upgrades Across All Ranges: Players across all OVR ranges may receive proportionally larger upgrades in key stats like Pace or Dribbling to maintain balance with other content released simultaneously.
  • Featured TOTW Items Upgrades: These particular items will be eligible for larger upgrades, including improvements in Weak Foot & Skill Moves. These upgrades will persist to the player’s subsequent TOTW versions. PlayStyles are planned to be introduced in the near future in order to infuse more personality into Featured TOTW Players.

Stay tuned for the release of TOTW 17 next week.
