EA’s announcement of the launch of FIFA 15 on 23 September 2014 in North America, September 25 in Europe and September 26 in the United Kingdom brought about an end to the era of FIFA 14. According to critics worldwide, the biggest draw for the FIFA series over it’s nearest competitor, Konami’s PES, is its Ultimate Team mode: where you trade, buy, sell, and earn cards which serve as players with which you can play a match. Ratings are constantly changing based on the player’s real-life performance, and by playing games, you earn coins, which you can then use to buy packs to get more cards or buy your preferred card from the in-game market.What attracted gamers so much is the real-life influences this had: it was like playing manager mode, except against gamers worldwide and with players whose in-game form depended on their real life form.

So, a Mandzukic card with its 88 heading would not be considered OP, because that card behaves exactly like that: winning every header (almost) and scoring tons of goals from crosses.
Most OP players aren’t costly, and easily available from the market. They’ll generally be available at a discounted price or about 2-3k, which gamers can get after play 4-5 matches in FUT.
That being said, let us now look at the list of the 10 most OP players in the game:
