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 in October, 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 our predictions for the fastest and best meta full-backs that we think will take over EA’s upcoming title.

To help you find these kinds of players, we’ve put together two prediction lists. One will run down the best meta full-backs and the other will highlight the fastest players in the position.


Keep in mind, each of these lists will be updated regularly following the release of FIFA 22.
