The best FIFA Wingers are where a lot of the magic - and rage - starts to take place. With pacey forwards tricky to contain this year they're as important as ever, and feature several of the highest-rated players in the game altogether this year, too.
Here on this page, we'll be listing FIFA 18's best wingers - which includes the best FIFA LW, the best FIFA RW, and the best LM and RMs, 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 Dribbling, Acceleration and Sprint Speed, and think about Crossing and Long Passing if you prefer to hit the big man in the middle, and Long Shots if you're keen on cutting inside and striking from range.

Other things to know about picking the best FIFA Wingers
As we alluded to above, there are a few additional things to bear in mind when choosing your wide players 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 wide players 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 Wingers and Wide Midfielders it works much the same, although you may want to put more well-rounded Styles on your LM and RM, compared to the more offensive one's you'd take if you were running a LW and RW.
- Think about your style of play when looking at stats - We mentioned this briefly above, but certain wingers will work better in certain formations and styles. Pace in general is obviously extra-useful if you play a more direct, counter-attacking style, whilst you might want to focus more on Crossing, Short Passing, and even Tackling if you're using more central or reserved LMs and RMs.
