Those initial few weeks are perhaps the most exciting of the entire season; unexpected pick-ups or a new fresh face can leave an indelible look and feel to your squad, and so it is important to try to get players that fit your playstyle or complement others that you find in your squad.
One of those early key decisions for your Ultimate Team, who will be your main creative outlet. That role is usually designated to a winger, as they have the time and space to get in behind a defence and send in a ball or cut in and go for goal themselves. Getting the best winger for your team is difficult, though, as there are a number of key stats they will need to excel in to make an impact. They include; dribbling, pace, short passing, crossing, ball control, and stamina.
Who the best winger is in FIFA 22 is subjective, though; there will always be those that go meta and pick the fastest players, but when it comes to creative players -- depending on your playstyle -- you may opt for a playmaker rather than a pace merchant.
To help nail this position, we have put together a list of the best wingers in FIFA 22, including some budget picks, those from the mid-range, as well as the absolute world-class; as we mentioned before, we have taken into account the FIFA 22 meta but also thrown in a few off-meta picks you could find valuable.

Initial ratings for FIFA 22 are not yet out, with those not expected until late September, but we are still able to put together a list of targets based on last season’s ratings, plus taking into account that season’s real-life performances.
We will, of course, update this page with the proper ratings and prices plus any players that we overlooked when that data becomes available.
