Full-backs are responsible for creating chances for attackers as well as defending against fast-paced wingers, so it’s key you pick a top-tier player for the position in FIFA 22.

Setting up a defense in Ultimate Team is a difficult task, as it’s hard to know which players are worth buying and work well together. This is especially true just after the release of a new FIFA title, as the prices of players are constantly going up and down.

With FIFA 22 on the horizon and set to arrive on October 1, it’s key you familiarize yourself with the top players in each position.

Once you picked up a strong set of center-backs, it’s time to move onto your full-backs. These players need a combination of pace, crossing ability, passing, and of course, defensive capabilities.

So, to make sure you choose the correct player, we’ve showcased the fastest and best meta full-backs based on their ratings in EA’s upcoming title.

While pace isn’t the only stat a full-back needs, it’s an important attribute if you want to attack from the back and push your wing-backs forward.

Unlike the list above, not all of these players are top-tier, but they will bring a lot of speed to your squad.

Alphonso Davies  82  LB 96 Bayern Munich
