While they started out a little slow, new Evolutions are popping up left, right, and centre in EA FC 24 - and we've got all of the best players that you should be using to maximise your picks.

Evolutions like the Fullback Swap and The GOLAZO Show can get you quite outstanding cards if you select right, but you'd end up with a lot of wasted time if you choose the wrong players. Thankfully we've got you covered with the top options below, letting you stay firmly within the in-game meta.

Fullback Swap

  • Cost: 500 FP / 100,000 Coins
  • Expiry Date: May 7, 2024
Player Cost
IF Selma Bacha 65,000 Coins
Versus Fire Eduardo Camavinga 190,000 Coins
IF Ona Batlle 30,250 Coins
Winter Wildcards Kai Havertz Expired SBC
Radioactive Josko Gvardiol 70,000 Coins

While this Evolution is quite expensive, the boosts here are definitely worth it with the right cards.

I'd personally opt for Kai Havertz if you still have his Winter Wildcards SBC - but otherwise, both Camavinga and Bacha are incredibly strong picks.

Showdown Winners Boost II

  • Cost: Free
  • Expiry Date: May 4, 2024
Player Cost
Joao Felix Expired SBC
Nordi Mukiele Expired SBC
Bobby Clark Expired SBC
Rodrigo Bentancur Expired SBC
Marius Wolf Expired SBC
Leila Ouahabi Expired SBC

This particular Evolution is a bit of a tricky one to recommend certain players, as it very much depends on who you actually have in your club.

You will need to have completed specific Showdown SBCs in the past when they've been active, but just shove the one you use the most in here and enjoy the free boost.

Formidable In-Form

  • Cost: Free
  • Expiry Date: May 3, 2024
Player Cost
IF Mohamed Salah (91) 446,000 Coins
IF Caroline Graham Hansen (91) 246,000 Coins
IF Aitana Bonmati (91) 167,000 Coins
IF Vinicius Jr. (90) 542,000 Coins
IF Virgil van Dijk (90) 488,000 Coins
IF Son Heung-min (89) 193,000 Coins

There are so many amazing cards to choose from here, so it just depends on what you already have in your club or what you can stretch to afford.

I'd personally opt for either Salah or Van Dijk as a Liverpool fan, but both Hansen and Bonmati have also been two of my favourite cards to use when they've been in my team.


  • Cost: Free
  • Expiry Date: April 30, 2024
Player Cost
GOLAZO Marcel Desailly 469,000 Coins
GOLAZO Ashley Cole 372,000 Coins
GOLAZO Sol Campbell 399,000 Coins

With only GOLAZO Icons available for this Evolution your options are quite slim. However, there are still some fantastic cards to create here, and players like Desailly and Cole are top of the pile.

Atomic Ace

  • Cost: 500 FP / 100,000 Coins
  • Expiry Date: April 27, 2024
Player Cost
Dominic Calvert-Lewin 400 Coins
Martin Braithwaite 400 Coins
Lukas Nmecha 400 Coins
Danny Ings 400 coins
Shekiera Martinez 400 Coins
Ante Rebic 400 Coins
Luka Jovic 400 Coins

The 'gimmick' of this Evolution is that each card is boosted all the way up to 99 shooting, making them an immediate goal threat in pretty much every situation. With the price of the available cards being so cheap, you can get some real bargains here if you go fully meta.

I'd recommend going for either Calvert-Lewin or Braithwaite, depending on the chemistry of your squad - but Martinez, Rebic, and Nmecha are also fantastic choices if you can fit them in. Although, with the Radioactive card type you might as well just pick whoever you think looks best, as chemistry shouldn't be a problem!

Unleashing Potential

  • Cost: Free
  • Expiry Date: April 26, 2024
Player Cost
RTTK Matteo Guendouzi 34,250 Coins
Moments Callum Hudson-Odoi Expired SBC
Trailblazers Jude Bellingham 189,000 Coins
IF Domenico Berardi (88) 20,000 Coins
Ultimate Birthday Evan Ferguson Expired SBC
Winter Wildcards Eder Militao 214,000 Coins
Moments Lamine Camara Expired SBC
IF Theo Hernandez (88) 219,000 Coins
Centurions Marcus Rashford 287,000 Coins

Lots of great options here too, and the flexibility of this Evolution is where you can really be creative.

You might be better off just inputting any card under 88 that you're still using in your team, but players like Rashford, Hernandez, and Militao are all great picks if you want to splash the coins.

Backline to Frontline

  • Cost: Free
  • Expiry Date: April 23, 2024
Player Cost
Eder Militao 16,000 Coins
Trailblazers Giovanni Di Lorenzo 30,000 Coins
IF Bernardo (86) 41,000 Coins
UD Juliane Wirtz 29,500 Coins
IF Leon Goretzka (86) 65,000 Coins
RTTK Bruno Guimaraes Expired SBC
DD Davy Klaassen Expired OBJ
Denis Genreau Expired SBC
Trailblazers Exequiel Palacios Expired OBJ

This is one of the better value Evolutions in the game right now, letting you enter any card for free and the best options shouldn't cost you too much either.

While cards like Goretzka and Eder Militao are obvious picks, I'm considering Juliane Wirtz's Ultimate Dynasties for this - and expired SBCs and Objectives like Palacios, Genreau, and Klaassen are all fantastic if you did manage to complete them in the past.

Club 99: Shooting

  • Cost: 350 FP / 75,000 Coins
  • Expiry Date: April 20, 2024
Player Cost
Versus Fire Marco Asensio 20,500 Coins
IF Rodrygo (86) 25,000 Coins
IF Kingsley Coman (86) 20,000 Coins
Lauren Hemp 6,500 Coins
Versus Ice Cody Gakpo 37,750 Coins

The arrival of the Atomic Ace Evolution has overshadowed this a little bit, but you can still get some fantastic cards, and the requirements are a little bit less strict.

I'd personally opt for Cody Gakpo here as I think he's got the best card and I'm a Liverpool fan, but Asensio and Rodrygo are also both great picks.

We'll have all of the latest Evolutions here for you when they drop, letting you know which players you should spend your time (and hard-earned coins) on throughout the year.

In the meantime, make sure to check out our EA FC homepage for more guides like this, including our RTTK player tracker so you can stay on top of any card upgrades, and the cheapest 86 rated players for when you need to complete any SBCs.
