FIFA 19 best strikers - the best ST, CF, LF and RFs in FIFA

The top strikers and forwards in FIFA 19 and where to find them.

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 19'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.

For other stats-based guides, it's worth taking a look at our list of the highest potential FIFA 19 wonderkids, plus we have pages on the best Goalkeepers, best Defenders, the best Midfielders and best Wingers in the game, too.

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 19, 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 19 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. You can read more on Chemistry in general in our guide to how FIFA Chemistry works, and likewise the best FIFA 19 Chemistry Styles in our detailed guide to those, too.
  • 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.
