FIFA 22 player ratings - the best players ranked by Overall

All of the top FIFA 22 player ratings listed.

FIFA 22 player ratings are here, giving you a chance to check out the game's top players across its many leagues, clubs and positions.

The best FIFA players are announced gradually in the build up to the latest FIFA's launch every year - usually with around ten players at a time, but this year starting with the top 22, so we already know the very best players in the game right off the bat. Below we've gathered all the officially confirmed ratings so far, but with just the top 22 officially confirmed right now you can expect plenty more to be announced over the coming days!

FIFA 22 player ratings - the best players in FIFA 22

The best way to use this guide, if you have something specific in mind, would be to Ctrl+F to find players of a certain position, rating, club or name. Here's a rundown of all the ratings announced so far.

Here's a look at what's new for Ultimate Team in FIFA 22

That's all for the game's top players so far - like we said, plenty more to come soon - but it's also worth bearing in mind, too, that the Overall ratings are generally most important for Career Mode in FIFA 22.

For Ultimate Team, you'll find FUT Chemistry is much more important than actual player ratings, particularly when Chemistry Styles are capable of boosting a selection of your players' attributes 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, like with Salah and Ronaldo getting a slight decrease this year, while Donnarumma gets a tasty +4 bump to his Overall rating after a big year for the young keeper.
