The best FIFA strikers are all about scoring those goals through a combination of finishing ability, strength, technical quality and, never to be forgotten, pace.
Below we've listed FIFA 22's best strikers, including the best FIFA ST and best FIFA CF ranked in order of their overall rating. There are, like in FIFA 21, no LFs or RFs, since EA Sports has removed those positions all together.
Remember to take a look at the specifics for each player before adding them to your team. Depending on your playstyle, you'll want to take Ball Control and Short Passing if you like playing two up too or, if you prefer breaking through defensive tactics, investigate the Acceleration and Sprint Speed stats.

Other things to know about picking the best FIFA 22 Strikers
There are a couple of additional things to keep in mind when choosing your strikers and forwards in FIFA 22, with these factors changing depending on which 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 22 potential wonderkids and young players, which 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 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.
Have fun in FIFA 22!
