The best FIFA Strikers are the kings of the game's business end, and with this year opening up to a few more goals than previous editions, they'll play as important a role as they ever have.
Here on this page, we'll be listing FIFA 18's best strikers - which includes the best FIFA ST, the best FIFA CF, and the best LFs and RFs, too, ranked in order of their overall rating.
Be sure to take also look at the specifics depending on what you want out of them, beyond the obvious points of Finishing, and Long Shots, and think about aspects like Ball Control and Short Passing if you prefer to play with two up top, or Heading and Strength if you like a big target man who's a threat in the air

Other things to know about picking the best FIFA Strikers
As we alluded to above, there are a few additional things to bear in mind when choosing your strikers and forwards in FIFA 18, with slightly different factors becoming more or less important depending on the mode and formation you're playing.
- For Career Mode, potential is important too - Some players have higher built-in potential for growth than others, and if you're planning on playing at least two seasons of Career Mode then it's going to have a major impact on your squad. It's also a great way to pick up a bargain, too, so if you're keen on finding some youngsters take the time to go over our detailed list of the best FIFA 18 potential wonderkids and young players, whcih includes some of the finest young strikers in the game.
- For Ultimate Team, remember you can use Chemistry Styles - Chemistry Styles, if you didn't know, add up to a whopping 90 points to your player's attributes, spread according to the Style you choose. For Strikers it works much the same as any other position, as you may want to put more well-rounded Styles on your LF and RF, to help them cross and set up goals as well as finish them, whilst you can opt to speed up already rapid poachers or beef them up as well, for instance, depending on your preferences up top.
- Think about your style of play when looking at stats - We mentioned this briefly above, but certain strikers will of course work better in certain formations and styles. Strength, Heading, Ball Control and Short Passing suit target men, whilst Finishing is always useful, Long Shots suit CFs who work outside the box, and Acceleration and Sprint Speed do, of course, help you spread the pitch with pacey poachers sitting on the last man's shoulder.
