Reasoning for Investment: As was pointed out in the TOTS Barnes post, league links to TOTS players tend to rise. People typically heavily invest around the big leagues like PL and La Liga, but often times the lower leagues are forgotten. This is a mistake, though, considering how few usable cards there are in lower leagues as a comparison.

RTTF Promes was one of the few usable Eredivisie players before their TOTS dropped. His relatively cheap price made for a nice ROI. As EA tend to follow a pattern with TOTS league releases, keep the calendar in mind and invest accordingly!
