The 50 best players in FIFA 17 ranked, plus their their positions and stats.

We've already put together our list of the highest rated players by position in FIFA 17, along with FIFA 17's highest-potential wonderkids, too.

That's all for the game's top 50 - worth bearing in mind, though, is that the Overall ratings are generally most important for Career Mode in FIFA 17. For The Journey, you won't be doing any transfer wheeling and dealing, whilst in Ultimate Team, you'll find Chemistry is much more important than actual player ratings, particularly when Chemistry Styles are capable of boositing a selection of your players' stats by a whopping 90 points in total.
