FIFA 21 Adds Neymar, Benzema, and More in Team of the Week 18
FIFA 21 dropped Team of the Week 18 today. It includes big names like Neymar, Frenkie de Jong, and more alongside everyone's favorite keeper.
While Team of the Year is the talk of the town in FIFA 21 right now, it’s not the only thing happening. Today marks the 18th iteration of Team of the Week and it includes a few bangers. Obviously, you’d rather get a TOTY card out of your Weekend League rewards, but who’s going to say no to a cheeky Neymar? But seriously, this isn’t the most-loaded TOTW we’ve ever had, it’s just a very solid one. Check it out below.

As mentioned above, Neymar is the standout player by far. And his price matches that. The 92-rated left-winger will tear your opponents into swiss cheese. The only issue you could potentially take is that it’d be nice to have a central version of Neymar for squad building. Otherwise, this is a massive card.
No one else is as exciting as Neymar, but there are a few big-name players in the squad. Karim Benzema, Bernardo Silva, and Frenkie de Jong are the other marquee names. Benzema is especially interesting because he has a Headliners card. So, if you already have that, congrats on your newly-boosted Benz.
The team also includes a few solid Premier League talents in Nick Pope and James Maddison. Neither are crazy expensive, so if you’re a fan those would be decent cards to target. Pope is overpriced because the community has a thing for his height. Personally, I don’t get the hype, but I’m also not that good at FIFA.
Everything else is pretty standard. Youcef Atal, Nico Elvedi, and Filip Kostic are all decent cards but aren’t really worth writing home about. I will say that Atal’s Europa League card was my supersub for months before I picked up James Tavernier’s Headliner. So, if you need one of those, he might be worth a look.
All told, this is a decent enough TOTW. There’s only one truly marquee player and we’ve certainly had several better squads this year. That said, if you can get your hands on Neymar, your left-wing is set until Team of the Season.
