The FIFA 22 best strikers and fastest attackers lists will be stacked this year with stars from the Premier League, Bundesliga, La Liga, Serie A, and beyond. 

Building up an effective and dominant squad in Ultimate Team is not an easy task, especially just after the release of a new FIFA title.

It can be difficult to know which players are worth picking up and which are best left by the wayside.

This is especially important when it comes to upfront players because an effective attack will always give you a great chance at taking home a win.

So, ahead of the launch of FIFA 22, we’ve showcased our predictions for the fastest and best meta strikers that we think will take over EA’s upcoming title.



Best strikers in FIFA 22

There’s a lot of factors that go into picking a world-class striker, whether it’s pace, the ability to beat a man, or clinical finishing ability when it matters, it all depends on what your team is missing.

To ensure there’s plenty of options for you to choose from, we’ve put together two prediction lists. One will run down the best meta upfront players and the other will highlight our picks for the fastest strikers.

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