FIFA 18 player ratings will help you see, at a glance, the game's top players across its many leagues, clubs and positions.


If you want to get more granular, we've also put together our list of the best players by position in FIFA 18, along with FIFA 18's wonderkids and all FIFA 18 5* skillers and skill moves, too - helping to narrow down your search even more.

But while the above articles are helpful for your more specific squad-building goals, it's also worth ranking all players in the game so if you're splashing the Sheikh's cash for City, you can go straight to the best of the best.

Finally, it's worth noting that the FIFA 18 ratings refresh has taken place, tweaking a large amount of player ratings across the board. We've noted the new ratings, where applicable, in a new column on the right of the tables. For the full list, head over to our dedicated FIFA 18 ratings refresh and winter upgrades page.

And if you're playing the summer update, we also have dedicated overall FIFA 18 World Cup ratings for you to digest.

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 18.

Looking for more on FIFA 18? We've gathered all our individual guides together in our main FIFA 18 tips and guide hub, and if you're playing the game's campaign-like story mode, we have a full Journey: Hunter Returns walkthrough. There are also lists of FIFA 18 wonderkids and the best young players, FIFA 18 player ratings, the best strikers, best wingers, best midfielders, best defenders and best goalkeepers. Elsewhere, we have details on five star skillers and skill moves listed, how to score free kicks, penalties and set pieces, and the FIFA 18 best players by position. Fan of Ultimate Team? we look at FIFA 18 Chemistry explained, the new January 2018 and original OTW Ones to Watch cards, along with best Chemistry Styles for each position, and finally how to earn FIFA Coins quickly and for free.


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 boosting a selection of your players' stats by a whopping 90 points in total.

It's otherwise an interesting read for those looking to see who has risen to the top - or dropped down the list - with each yearly iteration, such as Gareth Bale dropping out of the top 10 with his 88 rating.
