James Rodríguez is really blossoming after his move to Everton and has already secured an In-Form card in FIFA 21. His Ones To Watch SBC is coming just in time because it seems like the Colombian will be making strides this season.

James Rodriguez was added to the Ones To Watch Team 2 as a Squad Building Challenge. The attacker and his new club Everton have enjoyed a great start to the season, and he should be one of the better OTW cards on the market. Here's how to get him on the cheap.

The James Rodriguez Ones To Watch SBC Card

  • Position: CAM
  • Nation: Colombia
  • League: Premier League
  • Club: Everton
  • OVR: 84
  • Weak Foot: 2 stars
  • Skill Moves: 4 stars
  • Price: approx. 19,000 coins
  • Expiry: October 21

After a 2-2 draw with Liverpool, Everton still holds the top spot in the English Premier League. James once again secured a goal. Nevertheless, the Colombian's OTW SBC is only worthwhile to a limited extent.

This is mainly due to his low pace (58) and lack of stamina (67). With the Catalyst Chemistry Style he gets +10 pace and a pass value of 92, but even then he'd find it hard to fit into the FIFA 21 meta. Rodriguez will need a bunch of In-Forms to get these lacking values to an acceptable level. Just like Blaise Matuidi, he's something of a gamble. Do this SBC only if you can use enough players from your own team.

Cheapest Solution

The SBC costs around 19,000 coins, which isn't that much. All you have to do is hand in a team with moderate requirements:

  • Premier League team (min. 82 OVR, min. 65 chemistry, min. 1 TOTW card)

James Rodriguez Team

This time our SBC solution takes us across a team from the German Bundesliga. Mesut Özil from Arsenal builds the bridge to the Premier League. As a TOTW card, we use Berat Djimsiti from Atalanta. He costs almost 10,000 coins. However, any other In-Form card you may have drawn will work here as well.
