Strikers are a vital part of any Ultimate Team, and FIFA 22 is no different. Here are the best FIFA 22 Ultimate Team strikers you can buy, as well as some cheap and meta options.
Finding the ideal striker is arguably the most important part of any team, and there’s plenty to choose from this year. After fans got to grips with the launch players, EA has also added dozens of special cards into the mix to shake up the meta.
Here are the best strikers you should buy in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, whether you’re looking for one of the top-rated, someone who fits the meta, or a more budget option.
Best strikers in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team
There are plenty of top-rated strikers to pick from in FIFA 22. The most important thing is finding the goalscorer who fits your style of play.
Whether you’re looking for someone small and pacey to make those runs in behind, or a target man to whip early crosses into, there’s a big name to suit.
One of the safest options is turning to one of the best-rated poachers, as they already have the stats to make them a menace in front of goal.
These are the non-Icon strikers in FIFA 22 that EA has awarded the best ratings.
|Ranking||Player Name||Club||Rating||Average Price|
|#1||Lionel Messi (SS)||PSG||99||7.9 million|
|#2||Karim Benzema (TOTS)||Real Madrid||98||3 million|
|#3||Robert Lewandowski (TOTY)||Bayern Munich||98||310,000|
|#4||Kylian Mbappe (TOTS)||PSG||97||5 million|
|#5||Cristiano Ronaldo (TOTS)||Manchester United||97||4.7 million|
|#6||Marcelo (SS)||Real Madrid||97||3.98 million|
|#7||Heung Min Son (SS)||Spurs||97||3.12 million|
|#8||Christopher Nkunku (TOTS)||RB Leipzig||96||1.3 million|
|#9||Luis Suarez (TOTS)||Atletico Madrid||96||1.2 million|
|#10||Ciro Immobile (TOTS)||Lazio||96||285,000|
Best meta strikers in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team
Aside from the top 10 rated strikers, there are certain players that just seem to fit the game’s meta perfectly. Especially when you throw special cards into the mix, there are some overpowered cards that will completely change your FUT fortunes.
These may not always be the highest-rated players, but they’re certainly the most effective. You’ll often see these cards turn up in the Weekend League throughout the season, as high-skill players make the most of their insane stats.

In order to highlight as many strikers as possible, players included in the list above will not show up below. Although, you could assume that the likes of Mbappe and Ronaldo are two of the best striker options in the game at the moment.
|Player Name||Club||Rating||Average Price|
|Ousmane Dembele (Fantasy)||Barcelona||95||3 million|
|Allan Saint-Maximin (Fantasy)||Newcastle||94||2.8 million|
|Antonio Di Natale (Captain)||N/A||93||1.8 million|
|Sergio Ramos (SS)||PSG||96||1.69 million|
|Paulo Dybala (TOTS)||Juventus||96||1.54 million|

Best cheap strikers in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team
While the players listed above will likely set you back a fair amount of coins, there are always some slightly lower-rated poachers that can help teams get off to a great start if you’re just starting your FUT journey.
Players with a low overall rating but with a handful of good stats, particularly pace, tend to be used a lot around this time, and can still be effective against any defense.
The market has been notoriously slow in FIFA 22 compared to previous years, so there are plenty of great cards that are selling for a fraction of what they would normally be worth.
These are the cheap strikers we recommend you use while you’re building up the coins to start splashing out. It’s worth noting that the market is ever-changing and varies across different platforms.
|Player Name||Club||Rating||Average Price|
|Wissam Ben Yedder||Monaco||84||9,900|
|Joao Felix||Atletico Madrid||83||1,900|
|Angel Correa||Atletico Madrid||83||3,200|
|Gabriel Jesus||Manchester City||83||2,000|
|Joaquin Correa||Inter Milan||81||1,100|
|Dominic Calvert Lewin||Everton||81||1,300|
|Inkai Williams||Atletico Bilbao||81||1,400|
|Donyell Malen||Borussia Dortmund||80||700|
