Team of the Season is in full flow in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team, and players' demand for SBC fodder is higher than ever so they can complete various SBCs. Fortunately, there is also an influx of high-rated special cards during the event that lowers the price of fodder versions, making them more obtainable than ever before in the game cycle.
Team of the Season is a unique promo in Ultimate Team as it lasts well over a month and introduces a plethora of high-rated special cards. It rewards the best footballers in the world for their consistent performances over the season. Some of these TOTS versions are released as SBCs and their overpowered nature is reflected in their price as well.

These 90-rated players are cheap and overpowered in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team
When it comes to cheap high-rated players in FIFA 23, there is a distinction between the players that are viable on the virtual pitch and those who are only useful due to their overall rating for submission in SBCs. With Team of the Season underway, there are far more examples of the former, especially with TOTS cards from minor leagues being rather cheap despite being overpowered.
