As you can see, there is quite a significant amount of players that can take advantage of the new FIFA 23 Lengthy AcceleRATE type, with even more being available outside of this curated list too. The players we've listed above are just what we think are the best Lengthy players to use, taking into account value and availability in some cases too.

FIFA 23: What Qualifies As Lengthy?

FIFA 23 Lengthy Explained
Click to enlarge

For a player to fall under the Lengthy category, they must abide by the following rules:

  • Agility equal to or greater than 65
  • Strength - Agility is equal to or greater than 14
  • Acceleration equal to or greater than 55
  • Height is equal to or greater than 174cm

A player that passes all of the above requirements will naturally fall under the FIFA 23 AcceleRATE category of Lengthy, which lets players build up to a fast spring after a short period of slowness. However, as long as the height requirements are met, you can play around with some players' stats to turn them into a Lengthy player.

Architect is the most common chemistry style to use for this, as it gives the biggest stat boost to Strength at 15, but you can also use Sniper, Marksman, Hawk, Sentinel, Backbone, and Anchor, all to varying degrees of success.

One thing to be very careful of is making sure that you don't remove the Lengthy status from a player who has it as default. Using chemistry styles that boost agility have the potential to do this, as the player might just be on the fringes of the requirements.

If you're ever wanting to double check whether a chemistry style will add or remove the Lengthy type, just double check their stats against the requirements above, paying special attention to the Strength - Agility calculation.

So, that's all you need to know if you're looking for the best FIFA 23 Lengthy players, giving you an idea of what constitutes the Lengthy type too. If, on the other hand, you're looking for some transfer market hidden gems, then make sure to not miss our FIFA 23 best cheap players list.
