Reasoning for Investment: Promo cards performance after going out of packs is inconsistent at best. The best marker of a player who will go up in price is by checking the PGP page on FUTBIN; choose the version you want to target, then sort by games played.

For Winter Wildcards, both Jonathan David and Niakhate had the highest games played back in the end of December. They both exploded into the weekend. In FIFA 22 there was a strong trend of French specials being great investments, and I think there is a good chance that we see that in again FIFA 23.
