Who doesn't love an injection of pace? Quite often pace is key in FIFA 23, and acquiring the fastest players for your Ultimate Team or career mode team is key. Moreso in online modes like FUT, the FIFA 23 fastest players will have a huge impact on your squad, especially in attack and defence, while you have more technical midfielders to pull the strings. So, here are the FIFA 23 fastest players, including wingers, strikers, and defenders. 

FIFA 23 Fastest Players

The list of the fastest FIFA 23 players is based on Ultimate Team rankings, yet we've left off Icons, Heroes, and other special cards that will be available at launch. Instead, we're looking at base value, and there are plenty of speed demons knocking around this year.

Player Position Pace
Mbappe ST 97
Adama Traore RW 96
Dan James RM 95
Vinicius Jr LW 95
Sheraldo Becker ST  95
Gerrit Holtmann LW 94
Alphonso Davies LB 94
Inaki Williams ST 94
Sarr RM 94
Frimpong RB 94
Sebastian Villa LW 94
Alex Bangura LB 94
Kevin Schade RM 94

If you're studying this list to build your Ultimate Team, Mbappe might be slightly over your budget by a mere million coins, so you might be best looking towards the premier league for attackers with Adama Traore or Dan James. Bundesliga is a gold mine for defenders too, with Davies and Frimpong on either full-back, while you can even get St. Juste at CB with 93 pace.

FIFA 23 Fastest Wingers

This is probably the real reason you are here. We all love pacey wingers. So, if you're looking for someone to slot in out wide with insanely fast feet, you'll be happy to see this selection of the fastest FIFA 23 wingers.

Player Position Pace Rating 
Adama Traore RW 96 79
Vinicius Jr LW 95 86
Dan James RM 95 77
Holtmann LW 94 74
Sebastian Villa LW 94 77
Sarr LM 94 77
Kevin Schade RM 94 70
Antony RW 93 82
Dembele RW 93 83
Lozano RW 93 81
Diaby RM 93 84
Nkoudou LM 93 75
Sulemana RM 93 75

There are many more incredibly pacey players on the flanks too. Koman and Bailey are both sat at 92 pace, while Luiz Diaz, Chiesa, Zaha, Leao, Raphinha, and Rafa can all be picked up with 91 pace.

 

FIFA 23 Fastest Strikers

Who knows what the meta will unfold to be like this year, maybe the two-up-top combination will come back into play and you'll need at least one whippet to get in behind and stretch defences. the fastest FIFA 23 strikers are:

Player Pace Rating
Mbappe 97 91
Becker 95 76
Inaki Williams 94 81
Noah Okafor 93 75
Acheampong 93 76
Elliott List 93 64
Openda 93 75
Adeyemi 93 75
Tosin 93 69
Moussa Kane 92 71
Yeboah 92 70

Other gold choices for your Ultimate Team could consist of Werner (90), Osimhen (90), Deulofeu (90), Daka (90), and Simon (90). If you wanted to dip into the 89s, Haaland, Nune, Muriel, and Marega are all available.

FIFA 23 Fastest Defenders

So far we've looked at players with the ability to beat players, but what about the fastest FIFA 23 defenders who will counteract any sweaty wingers?

Player Position Pace Rating
Davies LB 94 84
Frimpong RB 94 80
Bangura LB 94 69
Theo Hernandez LB 93 85
St. Juste CB 93 76
Osayi-Samuel RB 93 74
Sanusi LB 93 76
Ferland Mendy LB 92 83
Hakimi RB 92 84
Lazzari RB 92 79
Bah RB 92 78
Sanchez RB 92 76

There are many more solid Full-Backs who are blessed with pace too. Kyle Walker, Spinazzola, and Fredericks are gold players with 91 speed, while Cuadrado, Henry, Pedrosa, and Carreia also make the 90s.  

There are also two more centre-backs who reach 90 pace too, albeit with bronze ratings (Arigoni and Haliti). Your fastest FIFA 22 centre-backs include Lacroix (87), Militao (86), Klostermann (86), and Tomori (86).

FIFA 23 Fastest Midfielders

Pace isn't everything when it comes to midfielders, but having a CAM bursting into the box with electric speed can be quite effective. You won't want a slouch in CDM either.

Player Position Pace Rating
Chara CAM 91 75
Nkunku CAM/CF 88 86
Kudus CAM 88 76
Llorente CM 88 84
Valverde CM 87 84
Moreno CAM 87 76
Nguen CAM 87 74
Smyth CAM 87 62
Lindstrom CAM 87 75
Gomez CAM 86 84
Nakajima CAM 86 76
Ribeiro CM 86 71
Laimer CDM 84 83

You'll easily find more midfielders with 80 pace, although you're pretty safe dipping into the high seventies when it comes to your technicians. 

If you're quite a lover of the FIFA 23 fastest players, you won't be short of options this year, and you'll easily be able to make some speedy teams with this year's chemistry options allowing for more creativity.
