FIFA 23: Top 100 predictions, upgrades, and downgrades ...

FIFA 23 is shaping up to be the greatest Ultimate Team season to date as players try to assemble the biggest names in world football into a single team. Who will be the best players in this years game? Here are our FIFA 23 rating predictions for the top 100.

FIFA 23, the final game in the FIFA series to have the FIFA logo on the box, is getting closer to being released. It's shaping up to be the greatest year to date, with many new Icons and FUT Heroes coming to the game.

As the community debates who will be the game's top performers and what their statistics should be, one of the biggest topics in the run-up to any FIFA release is the player ratings.

This year is no exception. So, although we were still a while away from the entire release, weve put together our predictions for the top 100 in the FIFA 23 ratings.

When will the FIFA 23 ratings be revealed?

EA haven't yet confirmed when the FIFA 23 ratings will be released, but we expect them to be released sometime in September 2022.

The top player ratings in FIFA 22 have been revealed a couple of weeks before the release of the game, with the best 22 players in the game dropping on September 13 ahead of the October 1 release date.

Be sure to update this section as soon as more information is available.

Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Robert Lewandowski are expected to play a three-way contest at the top of the rankings. Messi had a rocky start to life in France, and was often overshadowed by his younger teammate Mbappe, but he still remains a legend on his day.

Lewandowski had another excellent season, which should see him recognized among the games' elite.

These are all just estimates until EA issues their final ratings. We'll be updating this page regularly, so be sure to check back for the latest information.

In the meantime, take a look at everything we know about how to get FIFA 23 early with EA Play, including a possible leak of the top-50 players.
