Ben Yedder's POTM card is certainly not cheap, he is around 650K from scratch. He cost me about 400K using cards in my club. I think the value for money is average, his OTW is around 100K less and is 2 ratings lower. It's not a bargain nor is it a rip-off.
I imagine the player that he will be compared to most is Mbappe as they occupy the same position from the same League and same nation. Mbappe is about 100K more but is a tradeable card. However, I prefer Ben Yedder due to his WF and agility, despite Mbappe having a greater physical presence, better stamina and 5* skills. It really comes down to preference, Ben Yedder is a more agile player whereas Mbappe is a more direct, powerful one. Furthermore, you may have a large amount of SBC fodder to use, just as I did.
For me, Ben Yedder is the perfect player for scoring goals in the box. Anytime he gets the ball in the area I feel a goal is coming, he is so agile and his ability to twist and turn onto either foot is exceptional and is why I like him so much. He is a massive improvement on POTM Aubameyang, who was my previous ST. He was clunky and inconsistent for me.
Pace - with a hunter this guy is rapid. Not Mbappe speed, but certainly enough to get in behind and bag some goals, his acceleration in close situations in the box is perfect
Shooting - His shooting is broken, 95% of the time he shoots in the box it smashes the back of the net.
Dribbling - insanely agile and very well balanced, fits the meta perfectly. able to weave in and out of defenders, sends Scream Pique back to Shakira
Passing - 87 vision and 87 short passing are more than enough for a striker, and he can link up play between the wingers and with a CAM very well, and even slot some through balls to them.
Physicality - this guy is weak. If he gets caught out whilst turning CBs then he will get muscled without problem
Stamina - 74 is enough to get through 90 mins with Stay Forward and Balanced attack for me, but extra time is a struggle. Best to bring super sub on to be honest!
