Reasoning for Investment: When investing, there are no better positions to grab onto than fullbacks – they have a better success rate than any other position by far. They have limited supply in comparison to other positions on the pitch, and SBCs often require them in the corners.

Each of the five times Theo Hernandez gold card went out of packs in FIFA 21, he rose considerably. I don’t know if that will be the case in FIFA 22, though, as his card got a substantial upgrade to 84. It will take some time to get down to a fodder price level, if at all. There will surely be other fullbacks who go out of packs in FIFA 22 that are around his price/rating, so keep an eye out for investments related to them!
