Reasoning for Investment: Price range errors are almost guaranteed to happen early on. We saw it with Frenkie de Jong in FIFA 20, and there were loads of players who had too low of PRs in FIFA 21, namely Anthony Martial. If you can get your hands on them, they are almost guaranteed to net you some tidy profit.

While Martial offered the best profit and ROI from this list in FIFA 21, it is usually best practice to diversify and spread out your investments. It is also the case that more expensive players like Martial tend to offer lower ROI, but his Manchester United and striker position premium proved to be one of the better investments in the early stages of FIFA 21.
