Top 50 FIFA 16 Player Ratings (10-1)
The top 10 of every FIFA are always the most anticipated release of each edition of the game, while the top 2 is usually dominated by the same duo of superstars, it’s a question of who can beat the other each year. The other 8 to make the list also seem to fluctuate but their ratings also change every year moving some up while others down.This year’s rating has taken into account the seasons players have had and the importance of their individual performances as well as the value they represent for their teams. They could very well represent the same value for your teams in the game. While the difference between ratings for the top rated and the 50th on the list could be minute, the difference in their play during the game is vast. Often even the characteristics also fluctuate to some degree allowing the players’ virtual avatars to evolve along with their real equivalents.
David Silva – Manchester City – Ranking: 10, Rating: 88 (+1)
The Manchester City playmaker was the shining light of their trophyless campaign last season. He dictated play and varied the Citizen’s tempo the best he could, sometimes not finding the results he would like but trying, nonetheless. His consistency and flair earned him a +1 overall rating in this edition of FIFA. Given City’s blistering start to 2015/16, you wouldn’t be faulted for expecting more from the Spaniard.
Thiago Silva – Paris Saint-Germain – Ranking: 9, Rating: 88 (+1)
A rock at the back for Paris Saint-Germain, the Brazilian has rarely been out of form in his many years at the top level of football. His overall rating is one over the score he had in the last edition. Deservedly so as he has stepped up to every challenge thrown at him in his tenure leading the French club to a domestic quadruple. His contribution in the opposition box from set pieces is another box checked for the big guy.
